Defending is, quite possibly, the core of any successful team. There are those who believe the best defense is the offense though, like Barca. You can find yourself scoring 1 or 2 goals in the first 20 minutes, and with a solid and consistent defense you can virtually control the entire game and you can't lose. There were those really great defenders that changed the game and defined what a great defender could be, like the god Franz Beckenbauer, but who do you think is the best defender right now? Picks were made out of memory, if none of your favrites are on the list you can pick Other and then comment here saying who exactly. Let the voting begin!
