Dhaira succumbed to cancer on Sunday in Iceland where he was plying his trade as a goalkeeper.

Born on 9 September 1987, Dhaira played club football in Uganda, the Congo and Iceland for Express, URA, AS Vita and ÍBV.

He made his international debut for Uganda in 2009.

Dhaira competed at the 2012 CECAFA Cup, where he was hospitalised following a collision with an opposition player.

A minute of silence will also be observed before kick-off of the 2017 AFCON qualifier between Uganda Cranes and Burkina Faso at Mandela National stadium on Tuesday.

Match officials from Madagascar and Tanzanian Commissioner Rwiza Kishogole will be informed during the pre-match meeting about plans to honour Dhaira.
