Having progressed through the ranks himself, Foden expressed his pride.
"They're all really talented lads," he said, "and they can all really push on to the first-team.
"I'm happy to see them score."
Foden joined the squad on Monday, following a well-deserved month off for his England Under-21 exploits.
While the midfielder admitted he is yet to rekindle full fitness, he believes the test in Asia will prove beneficial to City's pre-season preparations.
"It was really tough," he conceded. "I've not been here long but to get a few minutes was nice.
"It was warm. The lads did well in the heat.
"I have to keep training hard but I'll be back (to full fitness) shortly."
