Second half substitute Lyle Brent Foster scored twice in the last 20 minutes of the match as South Africa beat Mauritius two goals to nil to take charge of Group B in the ongoing COSAFA under 20 championships in Zambia.

The young Orlando Pirates striker scored in the 73rd minute with a thunderous shot that hit the crossbar and bounced out but it had already crossed the line, Mauritius players tried to protest but it fell on deaf ears.

Foster then beat the offside trap deep in extra time to score his second. South Africa go top of group B whole Foster joins Patrick Phiri of Malawi and Muhammad Shaban of Uganda as top goalscorers of the tournament so far.

Barren draw
