Uganda Cranes and Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango believes his national teammates are the best in the world after finishing their 2018 campaign with a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Congo at the Stade De L’Unite, Kintele in Brazzaville on Sunday.
The 32-year-old Uganda captain says he admires his fellow countrymen’s desire to improve after getting nine points – three goals scored against two, with only eventual Group E winners Egypt beating Uganda.
He said on Twitter: “Great fight from the boys ending the campaign with respect despite not qualifying.”
