How Nigeria’s Isaac Success impressed soccer fans against Manchester United


Manchester United suffered a third successive loss in the new season on Sunday after they were defeated 3-1 by Watford at Vicarage Road.

After a bright start to the league campaign in August, Jose Mourinho’s United have lost to Manchester City, the Europa League opener at Feyenoord and now Watford within nine days.

18-year-old Marcus Rashford cancelled out Etienne Capoue’s opener before Watford surged back in front in the final seven minutes.

Substitute Camilo Zuniga scored from his first touch and Troy Deeney netted a penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Nigeria’s Isaac Success, who replaced his compatriot Odion Ighalo in the 90th minute, became the talking point of the entertaining match after his moment of brilliance against United’s highly rated defender Eric Bailey during the match.
