Onyango is the only PSL player nominated for the top Caf award, while Ellis, Kgatlana and Van Wyk are representing South African Women’s football

Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has made it into the top 10 for the 2018 African Player of the Year award.

The Uganda national team skipper is no doubt one of the talented players on the continent, and his selection is justified by his performances on the field of play.

He helped The Cranes qualify for their second successive Africa Cup of Nations tournament with a game to spare.

At club level, Onyango has been one of Sundowns’ important players and while he is out injured, he remains their first-choice shot-stopper.

He was named the best player based in Africa by Caf in 2017 following Sundowns’ successful campaign which saw them clinch the Caf Champions League and Caf Super Cup.
