AFCON QUALIFIERS: Isaac Success excited about Eagles recall


Super Eagles and Watford FC striker Isaac Success has expressed delight on his recall to the national team set up. CompleteSports reports.

The striker has been absent from international duty for two years due to on and off the field issues.

The well-built striker was embroiled in a serious scandal in 2017, when he was alleged to have been constantly patronizing commercial sex workers in London.

Success also battled with fitness over time and it limited his playing chances in both club and country.

The former youth international is enjoying his football again. His recent form for Watford earned him a recall back to the Super Eagles team.

He ensures Nigerians that he is focuded and ready to do his bit to help seal qualification for the next AFCON tournament.

“Well I’m glad to be back representing Nigeria after two years,” Success told CSN.

“It’s good to see my friends as well. For me, I don’t think it’s my performance for Watford that earned me a recall back because I think we have other talented players in Europe even greater than me”

“For me, mistakes of two years ago are in the past and they have been corrected already”he added

“I’m back to shape better than before. I’m just here to do what I have to do, and we will see where we go from here.” he said.

Success will look to stake his claim for a starting place in the team as he is one of four other players recalled to the team.

He will hope to make up for lost time as the Eagles tackle Libya over two legs, in what is seen as crucial matches for the Eagles as they strive to seal AFCON qualification.

The Super Eagles will play Libya in Uyo, on Saturday and also in the reverse leg in Sfax, Tunisia on Tuesday.
