Baxter named Maritzburg United's Siyanda Xulu as the player who will don the armband in the tournament, putting a cherry on top of what has been an excellent campaign for the former Kaizer Chiefs man after he was also nominated for the Defender of the Season award.

Speaking to SAFA about the coach's decision, the Team of Choice star said, "It was a very huge surprise when the coach named me the captain. Coming back here is me saying to myself let me just learn new things from the other guys, let me reset my international career. It was me trying to refocus on my game, and the captaincy is not something I really expected."

Bafana's first game at the tournament will take place on June 3rd.
