"Somalia had never missed any international or continental competition since the fall of Somalia in 1991 and that is because of the commitment by Somali NOC and its member federations. Last year I met with the national football team in Dar Es Salaam and they were really more happier than their counterparts in the CECAFA region Despite all difficulties they experienced," the deputy prime minister Hussein Arab Essa told the media.

Somali Prime minister Dr. Abdi Weli Mohamed Ali said it was a great pleasure for him and the whole Somali community that a team from Somalia will be taking part in such global event.

"I know that Somalia has experienced difficulties and these two young people Samsam and Mohamed have been training in a difficult situation in the country, but we are all happy that Somalia will appear in London Olympics," the Somali Prime minister Dr. Abdi Weli Mohamed Ali said after the farewell ceremony press conference at his home.

The Somali NOC delegation and the national team will be off to London on Tuesday via Dubai where they will stay for several hours. The Somali Olympic delegation will arrive on London's Heathrow international airport on Wednesday morning at about 06:20 in the morning.
