The flamboyant winger adds a fresh touch to his team's World Cup credentials.
European-based like many of the current squad, Lekgetho is one of the few South African players who have been able to shine with new employers in recent months - in his case Lokomotiv Moscow.
He played for the Russian outfit in all six of their Champions League matches and was part of the starting line-up that surprised Real Madrid 2-0.
His strongest position is on the left-hand side of midfield but he is capable of unleashing his attacking style from left back.
He moved to Russia for £140,000 from Moroka Swallows.
Lekgetho was drafted into the squad after injury forced Matthew Booth out of it.
