Protesters calling for fall of President Omar Al-Bashir regime in Sudan took time off their busy schedule to watch Wednesday night’s Champions League proceedings between Manchester United and Barcelona.
Once again the beautiful game proved a uniting factor as the protesters mounted a huge screen outside army headquarters in Khartoum to enjoy the action filled encounter which ended 1-0 in favor of the Spanish giants.
Luke Show turned the ball into his own net under duress in the first half to decide the quarter-finals first leg match.
