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.

Coaches have different systems and some players would be bad for a certain coach and be good at another coach.

It's either you are the most experienced player in the squad or perhaps Baxter was impressed with your perfomance which includes discipline,dedication and consistency throughout the recently-concluded season,either way congratulations man and good luck on your new role of leading Bafana to Cosafa glory yet again.
