Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Percy Tau has lamented his side's inability to find the back of the net in their 2-0 loss against Kashima Antlers in the Club World Cup.

Despite dominating the possession stakes and opportunities created, the Brazilians were condemned to defeat after second-half goals from Yasushi Endo and Mu Kanazaki.

As a result, Pitso Mosimane's side will face South Korean outfit Jeonbuk Hyundai in a fifth-place play-off match on Wednesday.

"I think we did very well," the 22-year-old told FIFA's website. "We should have scored goals from the chances we created in the first-half.

"He (Mosimane) just told us in there that we really have to move on now. We have to get back and we have to be positive."

The in-form man also acknowledged the travelling Sundowns fans amongst the home side's capacity crowd.

"We saw them and were happy that they came through for us," Tau added.

"And for the kids watching back home tonight, I just want to tell them, focus on getting a few things right in football. 

"Take care of the basics and whenever you lose, come back strong," he concluded.
