Former Super Eagles player, Isaac Promise, is dead. He died at the age of 31.
The news of his death was released in a statement from his club Austin Bold FC in the USL Championship in the United States of America.
He was the captain of the Flying Eagles team that won silver at the World Youth Championship in Holland in 2005 and the Dream Team that won the silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
“Austin Bold FC is heartbroken by the death of Promise Isaac who passed Wednesday night at the age of 31,” the statement read.
“An accomplished player, Isaac became the club’s 7th signing in history in August 2018 after spending the previous 12 seasons in the Turkish Süper Lig, TFF First League, and the Saudi Professional League.”
At that time, Isaac registered over 350 appearances and scored 79 goals.
Isaac represented the Super Eagles in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, serving as captain and scoring once in six matches en route to the competition’s final.
Isaac then earned a silver medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing with the Nigerian U-23 team, again serving as captain in four matches, including the gold medal match.
