The Champions League draw took place on Thursday night, but the fans are still excited about the event and looking forward to the action
We can read on social media (posted below) how the Bafana Bafana star is excited his dreams came true.
“Dreams That You Dare To Dream Really Do Come True,” Tau wrote on Twitter.
Instead of feeling daunted by the challenge, Tau will savour the moment, for there are not many South Africans who’ve had the opportunity of playing against the best on the biggest club stage.
In the Tweets below, we can also witness how South African soccer fans continued to be captured by moments of the draw. They kept discussing and posting the highlights of the show on Friday.
Many players posted, liked and commented on the “friendly” moment between Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi. You can watch the video below, posted by Goal.
Then there are the likes of Banyana Banyana star Janine Van Wyk and legend Amanda Dlamini discussing Virgil van Dijk beating Messi and Ronaldo to the Uefa Player of the Year award.
The Liverpool defender is tipped by Dlamini for the Ballon d’Or. Finally, let’s not forget Eric Cantona’s poetic speech. The less said about it, the easier it is for us.
You can watch and listen to the Manchester United legend a few more times to figure out what he was talking about. Steve Komphela is not the only legend who requires the fans to produce a dictionary.
Eric Cantona has just won the 2019 UEFA President’s Award and accepted it with a speech that rivals the seagulls following the trawler. Thank you, Eric.

A defender actually won this award? It’s a miracle 🙌 Especially being nominated alongside the best two players in the world. Defenders are often overlooked & it’s about time that players in ALL positions get recognition for their outstanding performances 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/L4DADXfxfI

Is it still really a far fetched statement to make tipping van Dijk for Ballon D’or winner this year .?. 🧐🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/MquLFNOmuh

“It’s great to be a part of the history of football. I am there, and of course, he is as well.”

Eric Cantona’s speech was not surprising, in the same form as the seagulls and the trawler. The former Manchester United geniuses words were actually easy to understand but the only question I had is why he was saying this now and during the UCL draw? @ManUtd
