Lioli defender Basia Makepe has been appointed captain of Lesotho.
Makepe replaces Nkau Lerotholi as skipper and he will lead Likuena against Seychelles in the two upcoming 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.
Lesotho plays Seychelles away on Saturday and hosts the island nation on next week Tuesday.
Likuena caretaker coach Moses Maliehe is familiar with Makepe having coached him at Under-20 level. Maliehe was assistant coach to Leslie Notši when Lesotho took part in the CAF African Under-20 Championship in 2011.
Makepe is expected to line-up in the heart of Likuena’s defence alongside club-mate Kopano Tseka. Tseka was also Makepe’s central defensive partner in Lesotho’s qualifying run to the U-20 Championship.
