Nelson Mandela died 5 December 2013. I was at the airport in Copenhagen when I found out Nelson Mandela had died. My son was going with his mom to South Africa for the holidays. I went with them to the airport to wave them goodbye. The reason I did not go with them to South Africa was because I have problems with my health. This is also the reason why I have not been bloging so much lately. South Africa is very close to my heart. Both my daughter and my son were conceived in South Africa. I know South Africa very well. I have spent a lot of time in South Africa over the years. Yesterday Nelson Mandela was laid to rest in Qunu, Eastern Cape. Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95. He lived a long and eventful life. It was very much because of Nelson Mandela that South Africa did not plunge into civil war in the early 90s. Nelson Mandela rose above party politics and became a leader for all South Africans. That is Nelson Mandela's greatest legacy. May he rest in peace.

Skånelands Fotbollsförbund (förkortning SFF) bildades 5 april 2010. Keyo Ghettson tog initiativet till att bilda organisationen. Skånelands Fotbollsförbund blev medlem i N.F.-Board 10 april 2011. N.F.-Board är en fotbollsorganisation för nationer, regioner och etniska minoriteter som inte är medlemmar i FIFA. Viva World Cup är en internationell fotbollsturnering som organiseras av N.F.-Board. Andra internationella icke-FIFA turneringar är Europeada och CONIFA World Football Cup. På sikt är målet att ställa upp med ett skåneländskt lag i någon av dessa turneringar.
Skånelands Fotbollsförbund har som enda uppgift att sätta ihop ett regionalt landslag. Man använder sig av fotbollsspelare från Skåne, Halland, Blekinge och Bornholm. Skånelands regionala landslag spelade sin första officiella match mot Sydslesvig 21 juli 2013. Matchen spelades i Öja utanför Ystad på Skåneländska Flaggans Dag som firas tredje söndagen i juli varje år. Matchen slutade 0 - 0. Skåneland var dock närmast en seger. Man hade spelövertaget och i 40:e minuten hade man ett skott som tog i innersidan av Sydslesvigs högerstolpe.

Skåneland played a friendly match against Southern Schleswig 21 july 2013 in Skåne. We thought before the match that Southern Schleswig were a much better team than Skåneland. One reason for that was that our team had only had one training session before the match. Because of that the coach decided during the first half to focus on the defence. As the match went on we realised that Southern Schleswig were not as good as we had first thought. We started to play a bit better in the second half. The match ended 0-0. Skåneland was the better team if you ask me. Skåneland was the team that was closest to score. Skåneland had a shot in the 40th minute that hit the inside of the right goal post of Southern Schleswig. This was Skåneland's first official match.
