Called the 'hottest' match since Somalia's 2012 division A soccer league began in Mogadishu a month ago, the defending champions Elman FC have on Friday hit their Heegan FC rival by a 3-0 defeat that lead Heegan to despair of its ambitions of taking the lead of the tournament.

Friday's match attracted the attention of the biggest number of fans at a Somali soccer stadium for the past several years. Somali state minister for sport Abdullahi Sheik Ali, veteran diplomat Mohamed Ahmed Alim, SFF president Ali Said Guled Rooble, Secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab and other officials were among Friday's match spectators.

The match was too hot and each team was struggling to accumulate the three points. The Match ended 3-0 in favor of Elman FC. Abdi Karin Abokar Nur scored the first goal for his team from a penalty kick award in the 10th minute of the first half, while Abdi Aziz Mohamed Ali scored the second goal in the 42nd minute of the same half.

It was the first goal for Abdi Aziz since the competition started a month ago. Last year the striker was the top scorer of Somali league, but unfortunately Friday's goal was the first for him in this season. However Elman's Awil Abdi Hussein made the match 3-0 in the 67th minute of the second half of the match.
