Lesotho have submitted their squad for the COSAFA Cup 2015 and included a mixture of youth and experience.

Lesotho enter the competition in the first round pool stage and have been drawn in Group B along with Madagascar, Swaziland and east African guest nation Tanzania.

It makes for a tricky pool for the Mountain Kingdom, with another guest side, Ghana, awaiting the group winners in the quarterfinals.

Well-known names in the selection include experienced striker Thapelo Tale and midfielder Bushi Moletsane, along with defenders Thabo Masualle and Tšoanelo Koetle.

But there are also some young guns to look out for, most notably teenagers Jane Thabantšo and Nketsi Rankhasa.

Lesotho’s best showing at the COSAFA Cup was a final place in 2000, where they lost out to Zimbabwe. They finished fourth in the last tournament played in Zambia in 2013.
