South Sudan chose to host their home game in Kenya because of the absence of a ready stadium to host international games, since Juba National Stadium is still undergoing major renovations.
The Bright Stars lost 1-0 in their 3rd group B qualifying match to Uganda on Thursday 12th November 2020, substitute Halid LwaLirwa scored the lone goal through a header in the 85th minute of the game.
The game at Nyayo National Stadium which will likely see many changes into the starting eleven, is the final determinant game for Besong and his troops if indeed they can still put more pressure into the group.
