Nigeria vs Libya: Gernot Rohr Invites Isaac Success

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has handed Isaac Success a recall to the National team for the upcoming back to back AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Libya.

The 21-year-old last played for the Super Eagles in 2017 in a friendly match against Senegal and even though he impressed after coming on as a second-half substitute, injuries, fitness and poor form have kept him out of the national team.

Since the start of the season, Success has turned a corner in terms of his fitness and performance as he has been involved with Watford, although frequently as a substitute in the league but in the Carabao Cup he scored twice for them before their exit in the hands of Spurs on Wednesday.

Rohr is a big fan of the forward because of his physical attributes and ability to play on the flanks and as a top striker, a chance to stake a claim for a spot in the Super Eagles has now been handed to him.

Success’ name is expected in the list of players that will be released on Tuesday for October's game against group leaders Libya in Uyo and later in Tunisia.
