MOGADISHU – Somalia's under-11 national team made an impressive showing in Qatar's Jeem Cup, however the young team was held in draws in all three matches they played.

The host Qatar became the latest team the Somali national team played Friday, in a tight match which saw the Somali team subdued multiple attempts by Qatari strikers to score a one advantage goal to advance after the 3-3 draw.

However, the Qatari team escaped a disappointing defeat after the match’s referee had awarded them with two controversial penalties that sports analysts said had gone beyond reason, giving two equalizers for Qatar.

One of the penalties was awarded to the Qatari team as result of a player who apparently tripped over the stadium’s turf near Somali team’s goal line.

The Somali team which had its third match drawn dominated the match, and exploited apparent Qatar defence vulnerabilities with effective and fast attacking tricks that created a number of goal scoring chances.
