Bafana Bafana attacker, Percy Tau, shared a simple social media post and received a hero’s welcome in return as Mzansi gave him lots of love.
Fortunes can change in sport in an instant and the roller coaster ride that Bafana Bafana are enjoying epitomises that perfectly.
Written off and ridiculed a week ago, Bafana are now the toast of the town following their upset victory against Afcon hosts, Egypt.
The mood is reflected on social media and a recent post shared by Percy Tau reflects that perfectly.
The Bafana star shared two photos of himself via Twitter on Monday and it received an overwhelmingly positive reaction.
Tau received an incredible 15 000 likes and hundreds of encouraging comments from South African supporters.
Bafana Bafana take on Nigeria on Wednesday and the heightened sense of optimism across the country is clear for all to see.
Kgotso Lengoba (@lengoba_kgotso) said, “Lion of Judah. African Messi.”
khetha nhlangothi (@khathaphila) added: “Keep up the good work Lion of Mzansi. You finally came alive, we could hear the roar all the way in Mzansi. Am the best with the super eagles. In you and the team we believe.”
