Watford have announced Nigeria striker Isaac Success will miss next month’s World Cup qualifier against Algeria due to injury.
The Watford star suffered a thigh injury in Watford match against Middlesbrough and was flown out to Barcelona alongside one of the medical staff for treatment early this week.
He has been ruled out of Watford tie against Hull City this weekend and will also not be fit until after the international break.
Walter Masari the manager of Watford took to Twitter Thursday evening to express his disappointment about the unavailability of his star striker.
According to Masari, “Isaac Success being out for Hull game is the biggest disappointment since I realised it isn’t Christmas today.”
Masari, who is unable to give timescale as Success is ruled out, further said, “We’ll be able to be more precise after the international break.”
This shows that Success, who has yet to be capped at full international level, will not be part of Super Eagles squad against Algeria in Uyo come November 12.
Injury also kept him out of another World Cup clash in Zambia earlier this month.
