Somalia's National U-15 football squad [The Ocean Stars Youngsters] will encounter their counterparts from Kenya in the inaugural edition of CECAFA U-15 Championship in Eritrea this Friday.

The Somali footballers have today made their final training session as they will clash Kenya in the opening match on Friday. This year’s CECAFA U-15 Championship which is the inaugural edition of the youth tourney, is mainly intended to gear up young boys for future events, according to Somali Football Federation president Abdiqani Said Arab who also doubles as CECAFA vice president.

The president said that CECAFA has decided to organize this tournament in a bid to allow the countries in the region to produce talented U-17 teams in the next two years and to avoid age cheatings witnessed at several CECAFA youth competitions in the past. However, will report from the competition and will mainly focus on all group A fixtures for the Somali U-15 football squad.
