    The custodian has so far conceded three goals and made a number of world class saves to ensure his team remain in the tournament. Onyango will be key against Senegal and the most important thing will be to ensure his defenders are organised to tame Sadio Mane and co.

    Murshid Juuko

    The Azam FC defender missed the matches against Zimbabwe and Egypt, owing to a knee injury. He is now back and ready to help Uganda get past the Lions of Teranga. He will, however, be required to be very alert to avoid conceding cheap free-kicks and being cautioned.

    Anyone who has been following this Ugandan side at the Africa Cup of Nations finals is aware of the input coming from the former Gor Mahia midfielder. He knows what to do and at what time, which has given his team an upper hand in the midfield.

    Farouk Miya

    Miya is yet to score at Afcon, but has managed to get two assists for his team. He will definitely want to do better against Senegal, and the most important thing will be putting the Senegal defenders under pressure. If he also manages to get a goal, then it will be a bonus for the Ugandan side.

    His style of play has impressed many at Afcon, and as a result he has managed to score two goals. If he gets another against Senegal, then his team will be in a better position to advance to the last eight. He will, however, have to device a way to go past the experienced Senegalese defenders.
