South Africa Celebrates Percy Tau #Afcon


The name Percy Tau has put a smile on the faces of many South Africans since last night after Bafana Bafana won a game against Libya, booking their spot for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The nail-gripping game saw Bafana Bafana go head to head with the Libyan team at their home-ground.

The intense game saw Tau open up the goal-scoring competition on the 50-minute mark.

However, South Africa’s celebration of the goal was short-lived when Libya got offered a penalty which was successfully scored by Ahmad Benali.

Clearly disappointed at Libya’s penalty, Bafana Bafana showed great frustration as the game was coming to a near end; however, Percy Tau restored confidence back into the team when he scored the second goal.

This second goal placed the national team on the Group E standings, securing their position for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Since the national team’s win, South Africans have been praising the boys, especially Percy Tau for a job well-done.

Here are some of the funniest tweets by South Africans we saw, honoring Percy Tau.

Some people jokingly tweeted that they’re giving themselves a day off in honor of the 24-year-old player.
