Moroka Swallows midfielder Lerato Chabangu has been included in the Bafana Bafana squad to do duty at the 2013 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) right here in South Africa.
The Birds maestro has been in inspiring form this year, helping us to the runner's up spot in the Absa Premiership as well as the 2012 MTN8 trophy.
He links up with Gordon Igesund - the man credited for resurrecting the talented 27-year-old's career by bringing him to the Nest.
Chabangu has since mesmerised opponents with his cheeky play much to the joy of the Swallows faithful.
Greece-based defender Bongani Khumalo will captain the side made up in the majority of Premier Soccer League (PSL) players.
