Coming: Instructor Talib Hilal

Talib Hilal, a FIFA instructor and coach of Oman’s National Beach Football team, has been picked by FIFA to conduct a week-long coaches’ course here in the Uganda starting on December 12.

Talib, will be expected in Uganda on December 10 to commence with his work on Monday day. The Federation CEO, Edgar Watson commended the world football body FIFA, for the choice to send Talib whom he said had a vast experience in beach soccer that would widely benefit the local federation.

A total of 30 participants have been selected to take part in this course, the first of its kind in the country. “It’s a good choice for us and we wait with eagerness to receive him” said Watson. Talib will be accommodated at Imperial Botanical Hotel.

Under Talib, Oman has blossomed in beach football and their national team qualified for the 2011 FIFA World Cup Beach Soccer held in Ravenna, Italy earlier this year. The instructor conducted a similar course in Yemen in 2010.

Last year, Oman Beach team finished on top in the inaugural GCC Beach Games in Bahrain. The same coach also led Oman to a gold medal win at the inaugural Asian Beach Games in Bali in 2008.

Watson said the course would be conducted from the Fisheries Training Institute in Entebbe with the practical sessions at Lido beach. Beach soccer is two-year old Uganda with Kabalangala Rangers as the champions of this year’s league. (Posted by Rogers Mulindwa, Head of Communications-FUFA)
