Somalia: Jeenyo FC wins General Da置d Cup

Jeenyo Football Club has won the 2016 edition of Somalia General Da置d cup after beating their rivals of Banadir Sports club 4-1 on penalties in the final match played at the FIFA-rebuilt facility, stadium Banadir on Sunday.

Banadir Sports Club who are Somalia痴 current champions, took the lead of the hotly-contested match in the 40th minute with a goal scored by Kiene Kafunyo [No 14], before Qeys Abdulle Moalim [No 16] made it 2-0 in favor of Banadir Sports Club just three minutes to the end of the first half.

Jeenyo FC made successive attacks on opponent痴 side and managed to come up from behind after Abdi Aziz Mohamed Atosh [No 10] netted the opening goal for his team in the 45th minute, while Mohamed Abdi Nur [No 7] bagged the equalizing goal in the 65th minute of the match.

Howver, Jeenyo FC were lucky to win the trophy 4-1 on penalties after the match ended in stalemate during the normal period that it takes to play a football match plus the extra time.

The final match was watched by Somali FA president, Abdiqani Said Arab, his senior vice president, Ali Abdi Mohamed, SFF executive committee members, club authorities and tens of thousands of spectators.

All matches of the 2016 edition of General Da置d cup were screened live on Access TV and Mogadishu Cable. This was the first time that all matches of an entire football competition were watched live on Television since Somalia started to put matches live on TV screens late last year.

General Da置d Cup is the second most populous sporting event in Somalia after the National football league. The Somali Football Federation has been organizing the annual event since 1972 and it is held in the remembrance of General Da置d Abdulle, the founding father of Somalia痴 Armed Forces. The late father of Somali Army died in 1965.

This year痴 General Da置d Cup was broadened and contested by 16 football clubs.
