Instead of
foreach (XmlNode xoData in xDoc.ChildNodes)

foreach (XmlNode xoData in xDoc.selectnodes("//Lists")
foreach (XmlNode xoData in xDoc.selectnodes("Lists")

try this
	System.Xml.XmlDocument xDoc = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();
	xDoc.LoadXml(@"<Lists><List DocTemplateUrl='1' Name='Go1' Value ='Hello' /><List DocTemplateUrl='2' Name='Go2' Value ='Fun' /><List DocTemplateUrl='3' Name='Go3' Value ='Load' /></Lists>");
	foreach (System.Xml.XmlElement xElm in xDoc.DocumentElement.ChildNodes )
		if (xElm.Name.ToLower() == "list")

Try below code:
This code reads the data from xml file.
' Open an XML file
Dim reader As New XmlTextReader(Server.MapPath("../xml/Lists.xml"))
While reader.Read()
If reader.Name.ToString() = "List" Then
 Response.Write(reader.Name.ToString() & ":" & reader("Value") & "<br>")
End If
End While
