Cranes keeper Dennis Onyango named in CAF XI World Cup team

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) have released the best XI for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers which included Uganda Cranes captain and goalkeeper Dennis Onyango.

Despite Uganda failing to qualify for the World Cup, Onyango has been making outstanding saves and kept 4 clean sheets out of the 5 games played, conceding only one goal against Egypt.

The lineup also saw the presence of Senegal’s Sadio Mane, Nigeria’s Victor Moses and Egypt’s Mohamed Salah, the latter who played a major role in Egypt’s home 2-1 victory over Congo to set a foot in the World Cup since 1990.
