But against the run of play, Verona were awarded received a penalty for Rodrigo Becao’s tackle on Antonin Barak. 

After a very long check for offside, the spot-kick was confirmed and Barak converted against his old club.

  • More strikers are signing up for the competitive to become SE point man……Not just any strikers but top level strikers playing in top 5 leagues in Europe…….But we are so attracted to a mid thirties striker in a Saudi arabian league…….If we can not get something out of this array of strikers then we don’t have any business in Qatar or Afcon……. simple

  • With his first kick of the ball in his first start and his first match for Udinese today, Isaac Success struck with the venom of a striker that has much to prove.

    Having been shown the door at Watford against his own will 2 months ago, Success was keen to show all and sundry what he still possesses.

    It took just 3 minutes for him to browbeat the ball off an opposition player far outside the 18 yard box before ramming his way into the box with pace and power, break strides to set himself up with his right football before disgorging a shot straight into the net that left the goalkeeper stunned.

    Rated 7/10 by a reputable statistics website, Success had 59% pass accuracy and was busy at the most lethal part of the pitch. He looked up for it and played with hunger and passion. On the downside, the former youth international lost possession 11 times but did win around 40% of ground and aerial duels that he was involved in for his team.

    This performance would have warmed the heart of Issac’s fans who believe he should be fighting for a place in the Super Eagles along with his contemporaries Iheanacho and Awoniyi.


  • Hope he continues in this vein of form. He has the attributes to be a consistent. He just needs consistency and focus. He looks really fit and strong. Wishing him all the best this season

    Keep Talking up your Ighalo and Musa
