An Orlando Pirates starlet has been named in South African Under 20 squad for the upcoming COSAFA U20 Youth Championships.
Amajita’s final squad for the competition has been named by the team’s head coach, Thabo Senong.
The games for the COSAFA U20 Youth Championships have been scheduled to take place from 6-16 December 2017 and will take place in Zambia.
Pirates’ Lyle Foster has been named in the 20-man squad for Senong’s team. Foster, who was promoted to the Pirates first team in September, has been linked with an overseas move, with AS Monaco in France believed to be showing interest in him.
With his inclusion in the Amajita squad for the Zambia tournament, Foster could get a chance to further impress overseas scouts with his talent.
However, as reported in edition 1051 of Soccer Laduma, an official move abroad for Foster won’t materialise until he turns 18 next September.
Foster is joined in the squad by another Pirates youngster in Siphumelele Mbulu and Kaizer Chiefs’ Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, among other talented Mzansi young stars.
