JOHANNESBURG – South Africa crashed out of the African Nations Championship (Chan) after a 3-0 defeat to Lesotho in a second-leg qualifying match played at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Sunday afternoon.
Lesotho emerged victorious 6-2 on aggregate after winning the first leg 3-2 in Maseru last week.
South Africa’s national Under-23 coach, David Notoane, is in charge of the Chan squad. He is using mostly Under-23 players because the plan is to use the Chan games as preparation for the African Nations Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe later this year.
But, after losing the first-leg in Maseru last week, Notoane was of the opinion that he needed some experience to guide the youngsters.
With this in mind, he called up veteran 37-year-old midfielder Reneilwe “Yeye” Letsholonyane to add some solidity and provide a cool head on the field.
