Onyango Maintains Slot in Match Day 4 Best XI Despite Loss to Egypt

Dennis Masinde Onyango continues to prove to the world he is a great goalkeeper with consistent performance for both club and country.

The Uganda Cranes skipper and custodian has shot himself to prominence performing a significant role in the team.

After helping Uganda earn a remarkable 1-0 victory over Egypt in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers last week, the gangly shot stopper was voted in the CAF best XI for match day three.

And the reigning African footballer based in Africa has maintained his place in goal for the team selected for match day four.

Despite Uganda falling 1-0 to Egypt on Tuesday at the Borg El-Arab stadium, Onyango stood out tall with a number of world class saves.

The goalie who plies his trade at Mamelodi Sundowns was the last goalkeeper across the world to concede a goal in the ongoing FIFA World Cup qualifiers after going 5 games.

Mohammad Salah’s goal in the 6th minute brought a halt to Onyango run of clean sheets.

Uganda is second in group E on seven points, two behind Egypt while Ghana and Congo Brazzaville have five point and one respectively.
