The Mamelodi Sundowns man who is yet to concede a goal in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier will play no part when the Super Eagles face the Cranes

Uganda will be without captain Denis Onyango when they face the Nigeria national team in Tuesday’s international friendly.

Thanks to Patrick Kaddu’s second-half strike, the Cranes defeated Cape Verde 1-0 in Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualification Group I clash.

And with Cameroon 2019 ticket in their kitty, they face Nigeria who returned to the biennial football showpiece championship after playing a 1-1 draw with South Africa.

For the clash billed for the Stephen Keshi Stadium, coach Sebastien Desabre has named a squad of 18 players with Onyango, Farouk Miya and Khalid Aucho excused from the encounter.

This is the eighth time both teams will be meeting with the Cranes having the upper hand having emerged victorious on four occasions.
