Success happy over Nigeria’s debut

Monday, 27 March 2017


Watford striker Isaac Success has previously been frustrated in his attempts to make his international bow for Nigeria but this finally came on Thursday when he came on against Senegal.

Having seen a 'dream come true' Success is now looking to help Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where he wants to be involved.

Success told the BBC.

'It was a dream come true for me. I thank God for being here representing my country. The energy is there, the mindset of bringing success to Nigeria and to Africa at the World Cup is there. I am happy now, I am fit, I am very sharp now and looking forward to the opportunity again.'

With 'Success in the team' the 21 year old - a member of the U17 World Cup winning side in 2013 - went on to say he feels Nigeria have a bright future ahead of them.

'These young boys, and I am one of them, they are really hungry to do something. We want to do something different, something the fans have not seen in a long time. Success is guaranteed because now they have Success in the team.'

After making his debut from the bench at Barnet's Hive Stadium on Thursday it would have been hoped Success would feature for Nigeria again on Monday.

However, the friendly with Burkina Faso was called off due to a number of Faso players being unable to obtain visas to enter the UK.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing for Watford though as it'll ensure Success doesn't pick up a knock ahead of the visit from Sunderland to Vicarage Road at the weekend in a game the Hornets need to win.
