Isaac Success is looking forward for the chance to play for Nigeria men’s national team again.
The 25-year-old striker who joined Udinese on loan from Watford this summer is relishing the chance to put on the Nigerian green jerseys again.
Success who looks reborn when on the pitch for The White and Blacks where he has scored a goal in his four league games played in Italy says playing at AFCON would be too early.
As he is working on improving himself and becoming a regular at his current club but the door is opened in the future.
‘I think every footballer wants to represent their country,’ said Success to the question – It is three years since your last international call-up. Injuries have obviously hampered your progress but how desperate are you to break back into Nigeria’s squad?
‘That is my aim. Like you said, I’ve had a couple of injuries that set me back. But it’s all about the comeback. That is what I was focusing on every time I was injured or on the sidelines.
‘Most of the time when I got injured it was because I wasn’t really fit. I made mistakes. I got distracted and it happened that way. I’m happy I’m back, fit, training and getting game time. I’m improving every day.
‘I’m not really 100% focused on breaking into the squad right now. The Africa Cup of Nations is in January so right now I’m focusing on my team and improving. But yes, I would be excited to play again,’ said Success to Livescore.
Isaac Success has played in four games for the Super Eagles with the last being in 2019.
