Uganda Cranes captain Denis Onyango proved on Tuesday why he is Africa’s best goal keeper when he again and again saved the national team from conceding many goals despite clear opportunities by the Egyptians.
Despite Egypt’s 6th minute score against the visitors in Alexandria, Onyango proved on so many occasions that he’s worth the accolade that was bestowed on him last year as Africa’s best goal-keeper when he frustrated the Pharaohs from scoring.
Coach Basena expressed happiness at the team’s overall performance.
“We lost gallantly. We put up a spirited performance away from home. I am impressed by the team’s overall display” Basena was quoted by fufa.com.
Egypt’s win sends them on top of the group with 9 points, two ahead of Uganda at 7.
Uganda will host the Black Stars of Ghana in Kampala in October in a decisive game.
