The Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr is now fully convinced that Isaac Success is injured.

Success pulled out of Super Eagles 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia which they won 2-1 claiming to be injured.

Although Watford sent medical reports to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) the forward was heavily criticised when he played in The Hornets 1-0 win over Middlesbrough.

Rohr during the week visited Success at Watford training ground where the striker assured him of his commitment to the Super Eagles.

A close associate of the NFF Tunde Adelakun, who was present during the meeting, shared a photo and wrote this ” I met @SuccessIsaac and confirm that he was injured and still is. Committed to the @thenff and @NGSuperEagles cause. Unfairly criticised.”

 

Success is still injured and is a doubt for Super Eagles next World Cup qualifier against Algeria on Saturday, November 12, 2016.

The 20-year-old suffered a thigh injury in Watford’s 1-0 win over Middlesbrough and has been flown out to Barcelona to get treatment.

He has been ruled out of Watford tie against Hull City this weekend and will also not be fit until after the international break.
