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.
