South Sudan to debut against uganda Cranes
South Sudan will play their first official match against Uganda on July 10, nearly two months after they joined FIFA on May 25.
The South Sudan Football Association announced the friendly match on Wednesday, which will also coincide with the first independence anniversary of the east-central African nation.
South Sudan was admitted as FIFA’s 209th member during the 62nd edition FIFA Congress held in Budapest, Hungary last month.
It also became a CAF member in February this year. The South Sudan Football Association is chaired by Mr Chabur Goc Alei
