03 Sep 2012 / News

Liban Abdi Ali made history at the weekend by becoming the first player from Somalia to score a goal in Portuguese top-flight football. The 23-year-old, in his first season at Olhanense after transferring from Hungarian side Ferencvaros, scored the opening goal but his side lost 3-2 to FC Porto.

Liban was recommended to Sheffield United by FURD coach Luis Silva in 2007 and spent three seasons at Ferencvaros before moving to the Algarve side this summer.
