Coetzee Named As One Of FIFA 17's Best Young Center Backs

Ajax Cape Town starlet Rivaldo Coetzee has been dubbed one of the brightest talents in South African football, and he has even been recognised by FIFA 17 as one of the best young center backs in the game. Do you agree with them?

The 19-year-old from Kakamas burst on to the scene two years ago, and became the youngest player to turn out for Bafana Bafana at the age of 17 years and 361 days.

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are likely to remain the only two South African teams to feature in FIFA 17 but that does not mean they haven't recognised other players from the PSL.

Coetzee, whose official figures in the game have not been released, will fit into a pot of players reserved for footballers whose teams aren't in the game, called the Free Agents League in Career Mode.

"Riva" joins the likes of other budding central defenders around the globe, such as: Matthew Butcher (Bournemouth), Jerome Junior Onguene (Sochaux), Joe Gomez (Liverpool) and Jesus Vallejo (Real Madrid).

Do you think Coetzee deserves to be in this category of players in the game?
