Super Eagles legends Nwankwo Kanu and Daniel Amokachi have tasked Isaac Success to believe he could join the list of Nigerian to have won the English FA Cup title reports Completesports.com.
Success has scored once so far in the competition for Watford and he is poised to start from the bench later today (Saturday).
“It is always good for players that are struggling to be in a team who have talent, and know they will have a run, even if they don’t start,” Amokachi told ESPN.
“He should just have that belief that he is going to feature in the FA Cup Final at Wembley at some point and focus on the fact that Watford can beat Man City and prepare himself to seize his opportunity when it comes and give everything.”
“When he is on his game, Success can be a beast to play against, as he proved in the League Cup loss on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur, and so can Watford, who showed in their league season that they can mix it with City’s All-Star cast.
Amokachi also expects the Hornets to take that mentality to Wembley: “We are footballers. And we love challenges especially when you play for a team that everybody considers an underdog.
“But when you look at Watford this year, I see team that will compete because even in the league… remember how they held Man City until City scored two goals… if VAR were there they would not have stood and they would have gotten a point or even won that game.
Kanu won two titles with Arsenal and one with Portsmouth and also lost two and says irrespective of whether he starts, or features at all, Success must go to Wembley with a winning mentality.
“Football is the same, even though Cup finals are a different ball game.”
“So he must go in believing he is the winner and giving everything because that is the place to give all and leave nothing behind,” Kanu told ESPN.
“He needs to be calm and be focused and know it is the FA Cup and anything can happen and it can go any way.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
