Wanga, who moved a few weeks ago to Khartoum from the Kenyan Premier League’s AFC Leopards, has already scored for his new club in the Sudanese league.

El Merreikh will consist of four other foreign players including Uganda teenager Salim Omar Magoola, 19 and key forwards Mohamed Traore of Mali and Serge Pascal Wawa of Cote d’Ivoire. The other is veteran Egyptian Ayman Said Mohammed Ali, 35.

The side also includes Mohamed Mustafa Mohamed, the baby of the team at only 18-years-old.
