Watch: Tau up for Goal of the Month

SA Players Abroad

Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau has been nominated for RSC Anderlecht's Goal of the Month award for October.

Tau has been nominated for the accolade for his goal against KV Kortrijk last weekend, which saw him dribble the ball nearly 40 metres before driving home a long-range effort past the outstretched arms of goalkeeper Adam Jakubech.
