Golden Eaglets hero dedicates goals to sick mother, colleague


Success scored four goals in the Nigerian team’s first match of the competition.

Golden Eaglets striker, Isaac Success, has dedicated his four goals scored in Sunday night’s 6-1 mauling of the Black Starlets of Ghana to his hospitalized mother as well as his teammate, Friday Njengo, who is also being hospitalised after an auto crash in February.

The striker, lived up to the bill by grabbing goals in the 10th, 29th, 60th and 68th minute; and was expectedly given the match ball in the Group B encounter of the ongoing CAN U 17 championships in Morocco.

The Media Officer of the team, Abodurin Morakinyo, said Njengo, who had been in coma for weeks, was recently transferred from the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit to the general ward.

“Our thought and prayers are always with Njengo who would have been here with us if not for the accident he had,” Abodurin quotes Success as saying. “We missed him so much. I’m dedicating this victory and two of my goals to him and the two others to my mother. We pray that God grant him good health soonest.”

The Nigerian youngsters were too hot to handle for their Ghanaian counterparts on Sunday night, tearing them apart 6-1. The Eaglets will next play against Cote d’ Ivoire in the African championship.
