South Sudan supporter of Infantino runs in FIFA Council vote

29 August 2016, 21:33

Cairo — The only African voter to publicly support FIFA President Gianni Infantino's election campaign is competing for a seat on FIFA's ruling council.

The Confederation for African Football (CAF) says South Sudan federation president Chabur Goc is among seven entries for two vacant FIFA Council seats in a Sept. 29 election in Cairo. The seats have initial mandates until March.

CAF says all candidates are undergoing FIFA integrity checks.

They are: Ahmad (Madagascar), Almamy Kabele Camara (Guinea), Kwesi Nyantakyi (Ghana), Suketu Patel (Seychelles).

The other contenders are: Djibrilla Hima Hamidou (Niger), Augustin Senghor (Senegal).
