Is This Bafana's Strongest XI?

Bafana Bafana take on Burkina Faso in a FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier this weekend. Could this be Shakes Mashaba's strongest starting XI?

Click through the gallery to see our strongest XI Bafana could start with!

South Africa were drawn with Senegal, Cape Verde and Burkina in Group D for their World Cup qualifying campaign, and with only one team set to qualify from the group, Bafana will need to be at their best!

We've selected a team we believe could be Mashaba's strongest XI, with the likes of Tokelo Rantie and Thulani Serero missing out.

While Rantie has played just 19 minutes of first team football this season, Serero has not played a single second, and we think the team needs players who are match-fit and ready!

Five players we've chosen represent Orlando Pirates, two play for Kaizer Chiefs, and two are from the Mamelodi Sundowns camp! 

What changes, if any, would you make to this team?
