Success eyes first Udinese goal in five months



Nigerian forward, Isaac Success, will seek to end his five months goal drought when Udinese when take on Serie C side Feralpisalo in the first round of the Coppa Italia on Friday (today). The Nigerian has made 24 appearances for his Italian side and has scored three times with nine assists since he rejoined the club last summer.

His last goal for the Le Zebrette was against Bologna in a Serie A game which ended 2-2 on April 25. The Coppa Italia clash will also be his third having featured in Udinese’s 4-0 win over Crotone second round clash last season and their 1-0 defeat to Lazio after extra time in the round of 16.

Speaking ahead of the game, the former Watford striker said, “It is the first game of the season and I’m eager to help the team start on a good note.

“We were great in pre-season and we hope to do better against Feralpisalo.”

“In Italian football, there are no easy games, as demonstrated by the fact that a Serie C team eliminates a Serie B team like Suditrol. We will not underestimate them as we need maximum concentration and maximum attention because we play in our stadium, in front of our fans. We must be hungry and stubborn to make a great performance and get through to the next round against a very organized opponent.”
