Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau’s stock continues to rise after he produced a match-winning display as he provided an assist and bagged a late winner to fire Union Saint-Gilloise from two goals down to a 3-2 victory, writes DEAN WORKMAN.
Brighton loanee Tau saw his side trail for much of the encounter against Tubize after an own goal in the eighth minute and a 70th-minute strike gave the away side a two-goal lead.
Tau’s team, however, turned things around after Union Saint-Gilloise pulled a goal back with 10 minutes to play. The 2017-18 Absa Premiership Footballer of the Year then turned on the magic as he assisted the equaliser before scoring a stoppage-time winner to fire his side to second in the Belgian second division.
Tau is making a real impact at the club and will certainly be turning some heads with his performances.
