In addition to this, he said that he was delighted to be working with the current squad and under the tutelage of coach Shakes Mashaba.
"It is an honour. It's always an honour to play for the national team,” Letsholonyane told Soccer Laduma.
“It's good to be working with such a great group of players and a great technical team."
After what was a productive and exciting Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign, expectations from South Africans have increased significantly ahead of this year’s tournament, despite Bafana Bafana being in the so-called group of death, which features Algeria, Ghana and Senegal.
"We are looking forward to a great tournament in Equatorial Guinea. As a player I am very happy to be part of this squad and represent the country.
“We will do our best to make the county proud," added a positive Letsholonyane.
