“I’m Not Scared Of Ighalo ” – Isaac Success Battle Ready For Super Eagles Top Striker Role


Watford forward Isaac Success says he is not afraid of the presence of Odion Ighalo in the Super Eagles team as they continue their battle for who will lead the line for Nigeria against Libya on Saturday in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers,


Success was asked about the push for a spot in the starting line up between himself and the Chanchung Yatai forward during the pre match conference of the team ahead of tomorrow’s tie.

The Watford forward said he is not the type who is fazed by the prospect of fighting for a spot with another striker as he believe all he has to do is to give his best in training and it will be left for the coaches to make the decision.

” First of all I’m not afraid of any striker, I’m not at all. It doesn’t matter. We’ve watched the video now. We spent the last few days studying them”, he said.


“Tomorrow we will do the same and after the day, we’ll have more knowledge on how they play. We are preparing for the game same way like a World Cup game.

“However if am picked or not we have to give our best it’s not a game where we have to take it easy. We are well prepared and we have to show to the rest of Africa that we are there. If you’re a good team you have to prove it. That’s the question for us in the first place”.
