Success Savours Goal, Watford Win Against Newcastle

Super Eagles forward, Isaac Success, has hailed Watford coach, Javi Gracia and his teammates and attributes the team’s 2-0 win over Newcastle in the Fourth Round of the Emirates FA Cup at St. James’ Park on Saturday to a collective ‘big fight’, Completesports.com reports.

Andre Gray shot Watford into lead in the 61st minute of the match. Success who played the entire duration of the game sealed the win for the Hornets with a 90th minute goal.

The goal was his third in four consecutives matches in both the Carabao Cup and Emirates FA Cup.

“Credit to the coach and to the team for a great performance today. It was a big fight,” Success told Watford’s official website.

“It was a good game for us after 11 changes. It’s not an easy decision for the coach, because he has so much confidence in the players.

“We are working hard and we are happy to proceed to the next round.”

Watford manager Javi Gracia has good words for Success’ contribution in the win while praising the entire team for working hard to reach the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.

“He scored at the end of the game, but he worked a lot during the game, fighting with all the defenders and trying to give different attacking options. I think the goal was the reward he deserved,” Gracia remarked.

    Keep it up we respect you even the insiders!

  • This should silence the doubting Thomases who think this guy shouldn’t be in Egypt ’19.
    Well, he may not start, but he’s fit for the bench.

  • Success’ link up play, positioning and and clinical finish to put Watford’s victory beyond doubt in the dying minutes yesterday were simply and utterly brilliant.

    It was a fine example of a brilliant finish from a player who should exhibit such brilliance more often to be regarded a striker of repute……

  • Success should be commended for scoring an all important goal against Newcastle in the FA cup. However, he should be encouraged to score in EPL where it matters most.

    I think he has got all the qualities and attributes to make a successful striker with his power, strength, decent height, dribbling skills and shooting range but I am afraid he flatters to decieve.

    Isaac Success improves every match we play.. Continue Isaác.. Now let’s sink Spurs Wednesday at Wembley…

    Do it constantly is what we are saying. Not once in a blue moon and in a EPL proper too.

    What I really like about him so far this season is that he has stayed fit up till this moment. 4 goals in 26 matches, most pundits will say is a poor return for a striker. However, Success has hardly played as the main striker for Watford this season. In most cases he often plays as the number 10 or a left / right winger. He had battled injuries and fitness issues over the last two seasons. We all saw him at Granada I think he’s back to that form again and he most definitely deserves a spot in the 23 man squad going to Egypt. Hopefully he remains fit and in good form. 

    • Yes, good to see him retain his fitness and hunger for the game. Alas, I think he will miss out on AFCON of his scoring rate doesn’t improve.

      4 goals in 26 (one every six or so games) is not sufficient to dislodge Osimhen who has 10 in 20 (1 in every two games) and makes him three times as clinical.

      We have plenty of options on both wings for the SE, and we need a back up who can guarantee goals for Ighalo and that’s why I think Success will be overlooked.

      Chukwueze, Onyekuru, Musa have all scored more from the wings, Kalu has the same number of goals as Success and we all know that he will not be dropped for him

        It depends on his goals returns for the national team btw now and June. If he can weigh in a few goals and assists back to back against seychelles, egypt and any other 2 friendly games we play b4 AFCON, he could sneak in, but his current zero shots at goal in 4 games for the SE doesn’t kindle much hope. He would also need to ‘pray’ that his fellow contenders loose form during that period (God forbid as it will be bad for the rest of the nation). Those are the only 2 scenarios that can see him join the party to egypt. But if everybody continues in this current goal scoring form and he reclines back into his 1 goal in 2 months form……even those who call him ‘FAR BETTER’ would not vex if he is dropped. Lol

  • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

    Finally……he scores…!
    Lets hope this feast continues. A spot as main striker behind Ighalo is really up for grabs in the SE ahead of AFCON. And its getiing more interesting with the 3 gladiators scoring over the weekend. Would it be Victor Osimhen, Steve Odey or Isaac success…? Time will tell

    • My money is on Osimhen. And then Odey to join once Ighalo retirees from international football possibly after AFCON. Success is not prolific enough. Although he brings plenty to the team with his burly attacking play.

      We do, however, require a couple of clinical finishers in the Super Eagles. And Awoniyi with two in two games in the Belgian premier League has already scored 50% of goals that Success has scored in half a season.

      Awoniyi should be good for a stint in the Under 23s

      • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

        Lolz. In England, strikers that ‘bring plenty to the team’ but dont score goals or create assists are called ‘defensive strikers’. Success should better up his scoring rate or else he will find himself in central defense someday. Lolz.
        Let me not say anymore before those who claim to know football more than the rest of us and tag him as ‘FAR BETTER/WORLD CLASS’ will behead me.

    • No, it will be none other than……wait for it…..

      In the green corner; coming at 6ft 1 with 8 career knock-out goals in 23 national bouts, from Imo state Nigeria; they have talked about him, they have heard about him, now they will see him live in the Egypt; the One; the Only; Allow me to introduce: Kelechi (lock-up-your-daughters) IHEANACHO..

      Yeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhh! clap! clap! clap! standing ovation!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

        Clinical finisher? So that means we are going with one recognized striker and two “emergency” strikers – Musa and Onyekuru from the left wing/bench to AFCON
