NAMED: Cranes shot-stopper Denis Onyango

Ugandan shot-stopper Dennis Onyango yet again proves to be the best goalkeeper in Africa after he made it to the team of Match Day 4 despite the 1-0 loss to Egypt in Alexandria.

This is the second consecutive time the Uganda captain has been named on the team of the match day.

The reigning African player of the year (based in Africa) made out-standing saves after conceding one goal in the game to deny Hector Cuper’s men who were hungry for more goals throughout the game.

Mohamed Salah, who also made it to the team, scored the only goal of the game in the 6th minute after an initial save from Onyango.

In front of Onyango is a three backline defence of Egypt’s Hegazi, Stopilla Sunzu of Zambia and Nigeria’s Leon Balogun.

In midfield, there’s Ghanaian hatrick hero Thomas Partey, Nigeria’s Victor Moses, Naimi Sliti of Tunisia and Sadio Mane of Senegal.

Bertrand Traore of Burkina Faso, Gary Rodriguez of Cape Verde and Mohamed Salah lead the attack.

Cranes are now second with 7 points in Group E, 2 points behind leaders Egypt and Ghana are 3rd with 5 points, while Congo Brazzaville is at the bottom with one point.

On October 8 Uganda Cranes will host Ghana in Kampala.
