Lesotho have named two new faces in the provisional squad for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone and Nigeria next month.

The home-based duo of midfielder Thabo Matsoele and goalkeeper Ntsane Molise are among 24 players picked by coach Thabo Senong for the group L encounters.

Lesotho will play Sierra Leone in an empty stadium in Freetown on 13 November before hosting three-times African Champions Nigeria a few days later. The other team in the group is Benin.

27-year-old forward Tsepo Seturumane, who has been capped 33 times by Lesotho, is out of the squad due to injury.

There are only three foreign-based players in the list – Motebang Sera, Motlomelo Mkhwanazi and Nkoto Masoabi, who all play in South Africa.
