Calculating Jordan’s victory over South Sudan in the Arab Cup qualifiers


The International Football Association decided to count Jordan’s 3-0 victory over Sudan as part of the Arab Football Cup qualifiers, after the match was canceled due to the infection of members of the South Sudan delegation with the Corona virus.

And it was found that eight players and an administrator from the South Sudan national team delegation were infected with the Corona virus at dawn on Saturday, after the results of a smear that the delegation underwent upon arriving in Doha appeared.

And the International Football Association issued a statement on Sunday, confirming that “a number of members of the delegation of the South Sudan national team were infected with the Corona virus,” to decide “in light of the medical procedures followed in this regard, the infected individuals were isolated and the activities that were scheduled for them on Sunday were postponed.”

While the technical meeting for the match was held on schedule, the press conference for the two teams’ coaches was canceled after it was postponed.
