It is the first year for Mr. Yeberow, who came from war-ravaged Somalia to serve as a FIFA referee.

Mr. Yeberow earned the chance to officiate a final match of the senior challenge cup this time. Mr. Yeberow was also picked to officiate the Kagame club cup final match.

The club competition was the first tournament for the young Somali International referee to officiate. It was only a few months ago that he was listed as a FIFA referee.

Uganda has beaten Rwanda a number of times, in previous tournaments.
