Foster Excited To Learn From Haaland: Sees Great Potential
South African striker Lyle Foster has expressed his ambition to become the leading forward for Bafana Bafana and learn from Manchester City’s Erling Haaland. Foster, who recently returned to South Africa following his €11-million transfer from KVC Westerlo to Burnley, aims to cement his place in the national team after scoring his first international goal in a 2-1 loss against Morocco. Speaking to iDiski Times, Foster stated that he wants to be the number one striker for South Africa and is eager to score more goals during their upcoming games against Liberia.
Reflecting on his club experience, Foster faced Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-final before his return to South Africa and was on the wrong side of a 6-0 loss. He described the match as a huge learning curve and revealed how he gained confidence after scoring his first goal for Burnley before the break.
He also emphasized the value of learning from Haaland, admiring the Norwegian’s movement and ability to position himself effectively to score goals. Foster believes that Haaland’s success is not only due to luck but also to his intentional movement, which is something he can learn and apply to his own game.
Foster’s goal is to become the main man on the national team and improve his overall performance by learning from players like Haaland. With hard work and focus during the upcoming matches, he hopes to showcase his abilities and cement his position as the top striker for South Africa.
