Meanwhile, Victor Lawrence Lual joins Francis Amin Michael on the list of those summoned by the Continental body.

Lual is in the coordination team as an assistant general coordinator and will be based in Douala coordinating group be games at the Tournament.

He is currently in Tanzania coordinating at the upcoming U-20 Zonal AFCON qualifiers where South Sudan U-20 is taking part.

The Africa Nations Championship kicks off on 16 January to 7 February 2021.
