Definitely not a warm-up event for next year's World Cup [taps nose]...
Also, looking at the announcement tweet, what the frigg has Piers Morgan got to do with it? If they're looking for an endorsement from a well-known person they'd be much better off associating themselves with... pick a name!

Perhaps "Piers Morgan" means "good luck lads" in Somali ?

Not sure what this tournament will do for IOM competitively.  They could easily reach double figures in both matches.

I just wish someone would pay as much attention to publishing the match lineups etc as to designing the posters.

Also, there will be an Ellan Vannin v Yorkshire match this year (Yorkshire are currently setting up a "non-FIFA" national team).

Just been looking on their short Twitter history and came across this clip that they retweeted. Maybe they could be the ones to introduce pre-match war-dances to the world of international football...

Ellan Vannin 6-2 Barawa (5-1 at half-time). Something tells me Ellan Vannin eased up a little in the second half, with a view to having to play another game tomorrow against Chagos Islands.  Probably would have been double figures otherwise.

Chagos Islands need a 4-goal win tomorrow to win the tournament.  If this happens, I will eat a pair of jeans.

Barawa will finish 2nd, unless Chagos beat Ellan Vannin by 2 goals and also score 6 goals or more (6-4, 7-5, etc.), in which case Barawa will finish bottom.  If this happens, I will eat 2 pairs of jeans and a handbag.

8 goals per game - 24 goals in 3 games, with each game having 5 more goals than the previous game.  A nice little pattern.

Still not sure about the choice of teams - clearly Ellan Vannin far too good for the others.

Yorkshire will also host a tournament in May, with (in the words of a local BBC correspondent), "established international teams" such as Cascadia (have never played), Barawa (have played a handful of matches), and Ellan Vannin (he could possibly be let off with this one).

Slack reporting as usual...

It's not a bad idea to get themselves 'started' that way though, a lot of teams travelling to tournaments like to play their final warm-up matches in the host country (when they're not going off to 🇨🇭/🇦🇹 regardless of how relevant of a location it is for the tournament in question), the fact it's a ConIFA event and technically Barawa are hosting blurs the lines a bit but the teams are still playing [relatively] nearby to where the later action will be (Barawa especially going out of their own way a bit).

It's something I've thought about recently as a possible way to kickstart my "Supp. GB" project (yes that one's still knocking about, still not got past the headspace though), I'm based a lot closer to London than YIFA are so if the opportunity arises (🇰🇮🙏📞👤), I'd be interested in trying to put a team together to play a World Cup side for warmup/friendly purposes...

I thought it was in Somalia, as Barawa is "hosting" a tournament there...
