South African striker Lyle Foster is set to get his first taste of continental football in Europe as Monaco visit Chelsea in the UEFA Youth League on Tuesday.

Foster has been included in the Monaco U-19 squad that on Monday travelled to London to take on The Blues at the Cobham Training Centre tomorrow evening (19h00 SA time).

The 18-year-old recently scored his first goal for the Monagasques Reserves as they beat rivals Nice 3-0 on February 8 in what was only his second appearance since joining from Orlando Pirates in January.

Having missed out on Amajita’s 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations campaign, the burly goalpoacher will now get to strut his stuff in the under-19 version of the UEFA Champions League.

Should the Bucs youth graduate feature against Chelsea, he would become the third South African, alongside national teammates Khanya Leshabela (Leicester City) and Tashreeq Matthews (Borussia Dortmund, now on loan at FC Utrecht) to have appeared in the competition in recent times.
