SCORENigeria has scooped that Watford striker Isaac Success has failed to impress the Super Eagles as a direct option to top striker Odion Ighalo.
Success won his second Eagles cap when he made a late appearance in the 4-0 win over Libya in Uyo last weekend.
However, he did not get any minutes in the reverse fixture in Tunisia.
“The coach does not see Success as a striker, more like a wide man, a winger,” a top team official informed SCORENigeria
“He was brought in as a cover for Ighalo, but did not show enough that he will be a good replacement as he always seems to drift to the wings when he attacks, it’s the same thing he does at his club.”
Incidentally, Success was seen as a direct replacement for Ighalo at Premier League club Watford.
And now with the renewed form of Ighalo, Success’ future hangs in the balance.
Success was once hailed as a hot prospect for the Super Eagles No 9 shirt after his exploits with the Golden Eaglets.
