Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau on debut for RSC Anderlecht in the Belgian Pro League.

Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau scored on his competitive debut for Belgian side RSC Anderlecht in a 3-1 win over 10-man Sint-Truiden in the Belgian Pro League.

The 26-year old has made a dream start to life under player/coach Vincent Kompany after finding the back of the net in stoppage time after being introduced as a substitute in the 64th minute.

Anderlecht had taken a commanding 2-0 lead, just three minutes after the visitors were reduced to 10 men after Ibrahima Sankhon received a straight red card in the 47th minute.

Sint-Tuiden managed to pull a goal back late in the 88th minute, but Tau restored his side's two-goal cushion with a chipped finish in the 93rd minute.

Tau, who is on his third loan spell in Belgium - from English Premiership side Brighton & Hove Albion - has now continued his streak of scoring on debut for a third consecutive time.
