Here the'twelfth man' i.e. the crowd who support the team really is just one man. He's sort of the crowd's coach. A good-natured agitator.
A portrait of a man famous in Khartoum for being a professional football supporter. He doesn't egg on the players, but whips the crowd into a frenzy to rhythmically support the team. Truly the 12th member of the team.
