Who Are South Africa's Best Four Defenders?

South Africa have a tough fixture this weekend, when they will come up against Burkina Faso. To get through this must-win encounter, The Boys need a solid defence. The question is: Who is the best back four?

This comes among the news that Erick "Tower" Mathoho will be fit and ready for the match. Added to the confusion is the exclusion of Rivaldo Coetzee due to injury.

"They should have replaced Rivaldo with Chabalala or Gordhino." – Maraisor

Other supporters say that Tower is not the silver bullet answer for our defence.

"We are going nowhere with this Tower and his partner Rivaldo. We need Tyson Hlatshwayo and Clayton Daniels. Tower kicks every ball on his way, no trapping, no passing but skop en donner, he is easily beaten by short opponents on aerial balls and he lacks timing. We need Tyson Hlatshwayo, that one is a soldier, experienced captain. It's just that Wits has no one at SAFA committee so that Tyson and Sifiso Hlanti could be seen as the best Bafana players." – SL-hated_donkey

Most supporters however, still throw their weight behind Tower, saying he is the man for the job.

"What would SA's defence be without Tower in centre back? Speedy recovery Tower, the nation needs you." – Dinho23

In your opinion, who are the best four defenders in South Africa?
