Stuart Baxter has confirmed his captain for the upcoming COSAFA Cup in Polokwane, selecting his man after a stellar season in 2017/18.
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 announced as the PSL’s Defender of the Season.
Baxter’s men have been given a bye in the first round and will only participate in the quarter-final stages of the competition. Bafana’s fixture takes place on 3 June 2018 and will be against the winners of Group A.
