Watford Isacc Success is not in the running to be considered for Nigeria’s upcoming World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Algeria despite coach Gernot Rohr confirming he will try new players in the dead rubber tie.
Manager of Watford Marco Silva confirmed Success is out for the long term after the forward underwent surgery in Barcelona, despite the forward claiming he is few days away from returning back to training.
Rohr is a big admirer of the abilities of the 21 year old especially after his performance in a friendly game in London against Senegal, where he came on to good effect to help Nigeria draw 1-1 against the Teranga Lions.
The injury now means he won’t be among the new players coach Rohr will be trying against Cameroon, as the manager has once again confirmed his intentions to call new players.
Speaking during a television Sports programme monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com, Rohr said ” Of course we are not planning to lose the game against Algeria but we are already preparing for the World Cup.
“So you will see new faces in the team. We are planning to use some players who did not get the opportunity to play before now. We want to give them the opportunity to show us what they can offer”, he concluded.
