OUCH

Isaac Success-fully rifles wayward shot at unfortunate victim

The late substitute should be saying sorry as we speak

Mission successful.

Fulham’s clash with Watford isn’t one that will live long in the memory.

The sides drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage and there was very little of note throughout the 90-minutes. That is, until one magical moment.

With Watford hoping to find a late winner, Javi Gracia turned to his bench for some inspiration.

Sitting there, staring back at him was Isaac Success, a man who has scored just twice for the Hornets since 2016.

We’re so, so thankful that he was brought on. The Nigerian ‘striker’ gave us arguably the moment of the season.

Success hit the target, it just happened to be the wrong one.

He did give a wave to the crowd immediately after the moment though. Hero.

Relate

The blunder reminded of us of that classic moment when Yaya Toure sent a little girl to Mars.

This was pure, unrivalled television gold.

Success should be writing his apology as we speak.
