Tau speaks after Ivory Coast loss

25 Jun 2019, 14:00

Bafana Bafana star man Percy Tau has said South Africa should have done better in yesterday’s 1-0 loss to Ivory Coast.

The South Africans lost to Jonathan Kodjia’s 65th minute winner and has left Bafana with a must-win clash against Namibia this Friday.

"I think we could have done better,” Tau began to Times Live.

"I think if we had got our attack better‚ got our attack proper‚ because we have a decent attack‚ it was going to be better.”

The 25-year-old Tau believes he and the side will come out a better side against Namibia, while also denying that the Ivorians’ physicality did not play a role in the loss.

"But‚ ja‚ we couldn't do that. We couldn't get in the game. And this was the first match - I think in the second match we'll see a lot of improvement from ourselves‚ and from myself also."

"No. Ja‚ look‚ I know I couldn't get in the match. But then I don't think they were that physical - that's what we expected‚" Tau said.

"Like I say‚ if we got our plan right it was going to be a different story. I don't think we could look at them and see a huge difference.”

"If we did our attack properly it would have been a different story. And as good as they are‚ we could have done better in our attack,” concluded Tau.

South Africa take on neighbours Namibia at 10 pm this Friday evening.
