Tau salvaged a draw for Stuart Baxter's men after netting a last-gasp equaliser as they drew 1-1 with the South Americans.

“It was a difficult game, we conceded early but got back strong. We were trying to get the tactics right and the movement. And we got the last goal in the last minute which is good,” Tau told SuperSport after the match.

“We didn’t know much about them but they were very physical and moving the ball fast which is a good preparation for Libya. But then we gave everything and got a draw.

“It’s good that we have youngsters in the team. So they will always help us with energy and it’s also a good experience for them,” Tau said about the youngsters being blooded in the team.

The Belgium-based attacker is confident Bafana will book their ticket to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
 
“I think we’ll go to Afcon, we just need to keep the momentum going for next year,” he added.
