Last year, the Somali coach took part in a Level A coaching course in Australia and was awarded with a high level certificate by the Australian FA and that was after Somali Football Federation wrote to the Australian FA and requested to do all possible assistances to the Somali coach and his Somali community soccer players.

The Somali Football Federation (SFF) secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab said he was very grateful to the Australian FA and the people of Australia for the helpful hand they extended to the Somali people there in generally and in particularly the football community.
