As confirmed by the Soweto giants, Foster’s name has been listed among those of top 60 young talents from around the world.

“Newly promoted striker Lyle Foster has been listed amongst the top 60 young talents around the world according to the Guardian. The UK based publication has run an article titled: Next Generation – 60 of the Best Young Talents in the World which features the Orlando Pirates marksman,” Bucs reported on their website.

Despite the recognition, the 17-year-old is aware of the work he still needs to do in his career and doesn’t want to lose focus along the way.

“It is an honour to be mentioned amongst some of the best young talents in the world, but in saying so these are merely opinions and not facts so I don’t get too excited about it.

“There’s still a lot of work to be done from my side and this is where my main focus resides. I want to work to one day prove I should be amongst the best based on my achievements with the team and my individual accolades.

“I would like to thank the Chairman Dr Khoza and both Coach Micho and Coach Rhulani for the opportunity they have given me to play at the highest level, and for showing faith in my abilities at such a young age,” Foster has been quoted as saying on Bucs’ website.  

Also included on the list is Timothy Weah, who is the son of African football legend George Weah, a former striker for some of the top teams in the world and Liberia during his time as a professional footballer.

We haven't seen much about this young man to comment about this. I need to see him playing a few games before I can judge him.
