Young Orlando Pirates striker Lyle Foster has been listed among the top-60 young talents around the world, according to the UK-based Guardian.

Foster, who was promoted by the Buccaneers this season, says it is an honour for him to be nominated among the best young talents in the world.

“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,” Foster told the club’s website.

“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 among the best based on my achievements with the team and my individual accolades.

“I would like to thank the chairman, Dr [Irvin] Khoza, and both coach Micho [Sredojevic] and coach Rhulani [Mokwena] 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,” added the 17-year-old Bucs striker.
