South Sudan Holds Cameroon In Second Friendly

Tuesday, October 13
*Cameroon 0-0 South Sudan

South Sudan and Cameroon played out another goalless draw in a friendly played on Wednesday at Amadou Ahidjo Stadium, Yaounde.

The first match between the sides at the same venue on Saturday, also ended 0-0.

Having missed a penalty in the first friendly, Tito Okello started from the bench on Tuesday before he was introduced in the 35th minute to replace Joseph Kuch Nyuar.

The two results give South Sudan major boost as they prepare to face Uganda Cranes next month in AFCON Qualifiers.

Cameroon on the hand, has used a team of locally based players against South Sudan to prepare for the upcoming CHAN, a tourney they will be hosting next year.

Coached by Cyprian Ashu Bessong, South Sudan beat Seychelles 3-1 on aggregate to reach the AFCON group B where they sit bottom without a point after defeats in hands of Malawi and Burkina Faso.
