Success tips Golden Eaglets for world title

The injured Nigeria U17 vice captain believes his colleagues can rule the world with or without him in the squad

Golden Eaglets striker Isaac Success has predicted a splendid outing for his teammates at the Fifa U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

The lanky forward who is battling with fitness after copping a hamstring injury against Sweden in the second group game is of the opinion that his teammates would get the job done in their second round tie against Iran.

“I feel bored and sad that I got injured but I believe that we have so much quality in this team and I have no doubt that we can win this trophy. It’s painful not to have been involved in the last match against Iraq but I’m so happy we won the match.”

“We have enjoyed so much support from the NFF and many Nigerians, we can’t afford to disappoint them. Maybe it could have been better if I’m playing but I know that with or without me, we can win this trophy,” concluded Success.

The Golden Eaglets have responded well without the presence of the BJ Foundation Academy forward scoring six goals.
