The South Sudan senior men’s team has entered its fourth day of full training on the technical part of the game as they warm up for Algeria and Gambia friendlies.

The team is expected to travel to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the end of this week, but they will continue to train for the remaining days in the country.

According to the reports, almost every member of the 29-man team named by Coach Stefano Cusin has turned up for the call.

They include team captain Peter Maker Manyang (Zisco United FC, Zambia), Okello Tito Odong (Gor Mahia, Kenya), Rashid Toha, (Aura Hill FC, Uganda), Makueth Wol Akeen (Mbarara City, Uganda), Data Elly Christopher (Kyetule, Uganda), Loki Emmanuel Peter (Bright Stars Uganda), and Machop Malual Peter Chol (Atlanta FC, USA).

Last week, Cusin announced a 29-man squad of both home-based players and those based abroad ahead of international friendlies.

The Bright Stars will be playing two friendly matches against Gambia and Algeria, which are scheduled for November 13 and 15 respectively.

Other players who joined the camp include Ramadan Juma Jenaro Awad (Khartoum), Mahmoud Shetii (Black Eagle FC, Aweil), Biko James Bage (Amarat United, Juba), Santino Gum (Salam FC, Aweil), and Abraham Majok (Australia).
