VETERAN football administrator Mohammed Omar has been named by African Football Confederation as one of the supervisors of a key match between Somalia and Sudan scheduled for September 21 in Khartoum according to the latest fixture. Omar has been listed as a commissioner of the match whose referee is Aden Abdi Djamal from Djibouti who will be assisted by fellow compatriots Egueh Yacin Hassan and Mahamoud Illtireh Abdilah while Adam Ahmad Hashim from Sudan will be the fourth official.
The match is a key duel because unlike the others it will only be played once as the home and away match-system will not be applicable. Somalia requested to have only one match played in Sudan coming to an agreement with the hosts who were reluctant to go to Mogadishu due to the conflicts experienced in the region.
