Cape Town - Bafana
Bafana boss Stuart Baxter believes that Percy Tau's hunger to learn
will see him become an even better player in the years to come.
The 23-year-old forward is quickly becoming a very important member
for the national team and in Saturday's World Cup qualifier he was
entrusted in playing as a lone striker against Burkina Faso.
And Tau didn't disappoint, scoring the opening goal for Bafana in a
3-1 win and being involved in nearly everything good Baxter's side did.
It's been a rapid rise for the Mamelodi Sundowns star, who two
seasons back was playing for Witbank Spurs on loan in the National First
Division before going on to play a pivotal role in the Brazilians' CAF
Champions League-winning campaign of 2016.
"I think Percy is a talented player, he is certainly going to grow,
he's certainly got more to come," Baxter was quoted saying on the SAFA
"He's got a lot of work to do, Percy, he's a great lad, he wants to
learn and I think he will get better. I am delighted to have him in our
squad and I am sure that he is going to be an asset to South Africa
