Briefly.co.za elected not to do a Throwback Thursday edition this week - yes my brothers and sisters, not even our great publication is able to escape the wrath of loadshedding.

We've therefore decided to serve up a Flashback Friday moment that will resonate with many Mamelodi Sundowns fans.

In celebration of the Nelson Mandela centenary, La Liga giants FC Barcelona travelled to South Africa to take on Mamelodi Sundowns in a friendly.

The match turned out to be an entertaining spectacle and the Blaugrana defeated the Brazilians 3-1, but the match will be remembered for a magical bit of skill displayed by Percy Tau.

Tau now plays for Club Brugge and made his mark in the Uefa Champions League against the other La Liga giants Real Madrid.

However, during the contest at the FNB Stadium, Tau delivered an audacious Shibobo on one of the Barcelona stars.

While on the edge of the touchline and with nearly no time to react, Tau skilfully deceived his opponent with the cheeky nutmeg en-route to his teammate.

Although Tau is arguably South Africa's biggest football talent, Briefly.co.za previously reported on his sense of humility.

His former teammates praised Tau for being down to earth, despite earning seven times their salary.
