It is expected that the amount that the South Sudan Football Association will provide to any player will not be less than two thousand US dollars, especially since information from a reliable source confirmed that the delegation that participated in the men’s team of South Sudan In the Arab Championship in Qatar recently, any of them received 3 thousand dollars.
