Bafana Bafana forward Percy Tau has made CAF's team of the week for matchday five of the World Cup qualifiers in the African zone.
Tau scored in South Africa's 3-1 win over Burkina Faso at FNB Stadium on Saturday, as did Mamelodi Sundowns teammates Themba Zwane and Sibusiso Vilakazi.
The 23-year-old was named man of the match as Bafana revived hopes of lining up at Russia 2018 following two shock losses to Cape Verde.
Stuart Baxter's men must beat Senegal in back-to-back Group D games to qualify for the global showpiece.
Tau was also a regular feature in CAF's Champions League team of the week prior to Downs' exit in the quarter-finals of the club competition last month.
