- Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau will make a dream debut in the Uefa Champions League this season
- Tau’s team, Club Brugge, qualified for the tournament following a 2-1 win over LASK
- The attacker has been lauded by excited South Africans via social media
Every South African footballer dreams of making it big in Europe.
For Percy Tau, the dream has become a reality as he prepares to make his Uefa Champions League debut for Club Brugge.
The Belgian side qualified for the tournament as a result of their 2-1 win over LASK.
Tau played a crucial role in qualification after he made an immediate impact as a substitute.
The Bafana Bafana forward was unlucky not to score as his shot struck the post, but he also scored Brugge’s second goal of the evening.
Tau has been unable to play for his parent club, Brighton & Hove Albion, but the loan to Brugge has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Briefly.co.za admired how Tau is being supported as two tweets have recently started trending.
Journalist, Joe Crann, shared the first one, which has been liked more than 3 000 times and Tau shared another on Thursday, which has proven to be even more popular.

Thuletu Sikhakhane-Mosupye (@LethuKaMama) added, “Like this is making me emotional.”
