South Africa’s leading scorer, Percy Tau, said his team’s second goal for Nigeria in the Africa Cup 2019 of the Nation, AFCON, the quarterfinals of Wednesday’s match,
broke Bafana Bafana’s determination to continue fighting in the game. The 25-year-old noted that the goal was scored at a time when Stuart Baxter’s men could not muster a serious response against Gernot Rohr’s team.
Tau declared this before the Nigeria semifinals match against Algeria on Sunday at the Cairo International Stadium in Egypt.
Speaking in an interview with SportingLife, Tau said: “We were not disappointed with the result, to be honest, it was simply unfortunate that we conceded a late goal in the match through a set.
“I think that goal eliminated the remaining energies that we could have used to see the game.” We did not have another chance to meet. ” The South Africans will now have to wait until Cameroon’s AFCON 2021 to possibly end a 25-year trophy drought.
