Shabba Misses Penalty As Tau Scores Again
It was a mixed night for South Africa’s stars abroad last night, with Percy Tau getting on the scoresheet again as Siphiwe Tshabalala missed a crucial penalty.
Tau continues to shine in Belgium with Royale Union Saint-Gilloise as they look to mount a title challenge in the Proximus League, and has now scored or assisted in five of their last seven league games, with last night's goal his fourth in all competitions this season.
‘Shabba’ on the other hand is having a tougher time in Europe with Erzurumspor and was on the losing side last night as they faced Second League side, Keçiörengücü.
The former Kaizer Chiefs man played the full 120 minutes as they were reduced to 10 men early in the game, but missed the only penalty of the shootout as they were beaten 5-4 following the 2-2 result after extra time.
Meanwhile, Lebo Mothiba’s RC Strasbourg managed to knock out his old side, Lille, in the Coupe de la Ligue, though he was left as an unused substitute against his former employers.
