Mzansi praise Percy Tau. The nail-gripping game saw Bafana Bafana go head to head with the Libyan team at their home-ground.
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 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, honouring Percy Tau.
Some people jokingly tweeted that they’re giving themselves a day off in honour of the 24-year-old player.
Am taking a day off today just to honor #PercyTau

Other South Africans are of the believe that Percy deserves every award you can think of, even a music award regardless of him not being a musician.
Percy Tau deserves to get awards at the Metros, SAMAS, Manzo Magic and even the Oscars and BET.
He can even win song of the year with this performance without a song.#AFCON2019Q #PercyTau pic.twitter.com/AZMOJOPwiX
