The vice-captain of the 2013 victorious Eaglet team and member of the 2015 Flying Eagles squad to New Zealand, Success in November 2013 signed for Italian side Udinese, later Granada in Spain and recently joined Watford.

His career has spanned three years in Europe and despite his recent move to Watford from Granada for a club-record fee in the region of £12.5m, he said his parents refused to visit him in Europe.

“My parents are traditional – they don’t want to leave Africa. “I always invite them but my mum says, ‘I can’t stop teaching’ or my dad says ‘I can’t stop preaching gospel’. It’s a bit boring living alone but I have to do what I do to take care of them. I talk to my mum before going to the stadium. She gives me courage and made me what I am today,” Success told wdsport.

He also talks about his struggles while growing up in Benin, the Edo State capital, “In Africa, some most families are poor that they do not have food at home,” says Success. “We would go to marriages and ceremonies to steal food. We did struggle all the time to get food.”
