A South Australian man accused of the drunken street race by the sister of Socceroos player Awer Mabil has pleaded guilty.

Akol Agiu Akol appeared Tuesday in Adelaide Magistrates Court after the death of his passenger, Bor Mabil, 19, in a crash in January.

The 19-year-old admitted that she had driven dangerously and caused her death during a street race with another car allegedly driven by his co-accused, Alakiir Kelei Deng.

Deng still has to argue for one count of driving without the necessary care.

Akol's indictment was aggravated because he raced on the street, had a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, had MDMA in his system and was disqualified.

Mrs. Mabil died on the spot after the Akol Audi sedan was driving into a fence at Andrews Farm, north of Adelaide.

Akol, from Daveron Park, seemed emotional in the dock, wiped tears away and waved to supporters, according to 9 news.

Around the time of his sister's death, Awer Mabil played for Australia in a quarter-final in the Asian Cup in which the Socceroos lost 1-0 to the UAE.

He scored four goals in nine games for Australia since making his debut against Kuwait in October, including two strikes in the Asian Cup.

The parents of the brothers and sisters fled from Sudan in 1994 and they grew up in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to Australia.

Chief Magistrate Mary-Louise Hribal sent Akol back to court in October in pre-trial detention.

She continued with Deng's bail to appear in court in November.
