Watford coach Walter Mazzarri has ruled out Nigeria striker Isaac Success for the next two weeks, making him a huge doubt for the Super Eagles 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria, reports Completesportsnigeria.
According to Mazzarri, the 20 year old will miss this Saturday’s clash against Hull City as he\'s yet to fully recover from a muscular injury he sustained in the Hornets 1-0 win over Middlesbrough.
\'Isaac Success being out for Hull game is the biggest disappointment since I realised it isn\'t Christmas today.
\'We\'ll be able to be more precise after the international break,” Mazzarri confirming the forward will not be fit for the game against Algeria in Uyo come November 12.
Recall it was the same injury also kept him out of another World Cup clash in Zambia earlier this month
Ahead of Saturday\'s clash against Hull, Mazzarri believes every side coming to Vicarage Road this season possesses the quality to cause teams problems.
“In this new Premier League season, all the teams have become much stronger and got better compared to last year,” Mazzarri stated during his Thursday press conference.
“We don’t tend to really look at the statistics because, for example, we managed to beat Middlesbrough at their ground but the next week they drew at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal.
“We need to be ready [against Hull] and we need to go to play in our best possible way, always respecting the opponent.”Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
