Lagos - Isaac Success is now close to be included in Nigeria World Youth Championship team after his team, Granada, finally got in touch with the Flying Eagles crew, beating the 72 hours deadline as reported by SL10.ng.
A mail was received by the team today from Granada although it might have been sent yesterday evening, finally ending the La-Liga’s team silence over the release of the 19 year old forward.
The club explained in a telephone chat with a team official that although they got a mail on the 30th of April from the Nigeria Under-20 team over his release, they however didn't get the reminders as claimed by the Flying Eagles.

However, Granada didn't give any reason as to why they failed to reply the initial mail until now even though it was received over two weeks ago.
Success is now almost guaranteed a spot in Nigeria final 21-man squad, but according to a team source a final decision is yet to be reached about his inclusion.
"Yes they (Granada) got in touch with us but the decision to include Success now lies with the coach although he has a lengthy phone conversation with Success which makes me think his inclusion is a possibility,” a source told SL10.ng.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
