INTERNATIONAL SPORTS GIST BELGIAN-BORN STRIKER, CYRIEL DESSERS SAYS HE WANTS TO PLAY FOR THE SUPER EAGLES By Admin Posted on 2 weeks ago 2 min read 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Belgian born footballer, Cyriel Dessers, who plays as a striker for Heracles Almelo in Holland has made known his intention to play for Nigeria. One of the best strikers in the Eredivisie League, the 24-year-old Dessers born to a Belgian dad and Nigerian mother, has a success record of 11 goals and 5 assists in 15 appearances this season for his club. Also, Dessers is aware that he has a slim chance of playing for his country of birth as they have several world-class strikers in their ranks, so he has set his sights on being a Super Eagle. On his desire to play for Nigeria, Dessers confirmed that he has been in contact with an NFF official. “There’s already been contact with the NFF. After the match against ADO Den Haag (last Saturday), an official from Nigeria sent me a message that I was doing well. “ “But it’s not going to be easy for me there either – there are over 300 million Nigerians worldwide.” “I have never been to Nigeria because of the political situation there. It was slightly better last year so I’ll be twice as happy if I can get an invite, even if it’s a friendly against Madagascar or Mauritius.” Cyriel Dessers in his latest official statement.
