‘Yeye’, as he is popularly known among his fans is an exciting midfield kingpin who is able to dictate the pace and rhythm of the game. He has been instrumental in making sure his club secured third place on the PSL log, and in so doing he has caught the attention of the Bafana technical team. Yeye's versatility is unquestionable and he has an eye for goal, allowing him to push forward as an additional attacking threat for the team.  

He will be fighting for the central midfield position with the likes of Macbeth Sibaya and Kagiso Dikgacoi but it is that type of competition that Bafana needs in order to achieve success at the World Cup.

His advantage is that he has been playing regularly at club level in South Africa, and his body is fit compared to the likes of Dikgacoi, who has been struggling to find game time in England with Fulham.

Letsholonyane will celebrate his birthday two days before Bafana’s opening match against Mexico.
