Midfielder Lehlogonolo Masalesa will captain Bafana Bafana in the Cosafa Castle Cup.

Stuart Baxter selected the midfielder as his captain ahead of their first Cosafa match.

Masalesa will earn his first national team cap when he leads Bafana Bafana on the field.

The midfielder is on the books of AEL Larissa in Greece after joining the team in January from Orlando Pirates.

“Congratulations to Lehlogonolo Masalesa who has been selected as @BafanaBafana captain for the #COSAFACup,” read a tweet from Safa.
