Belgium-born Nigerian youngster, Dessers, keen on playing for Super Eagles


All things being equal, yet another talented Europe-born footballer may soon be playing for the Super Eagles.

His name is Cyriel Dessers, and he was born in Belgium – a country blessed with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke.

Owing to the array of talents in the Belgian national team, Dessers has hinted on the possibility of pitching his tent with Nigeria.

Dessers is yet to feature for the Belgium national side but has been invited to the U21 team.

“I am concentrating on Utrecht now, but if something happens with Nigeria, that would be nice,” Dessers told Belgian website

“I have to be realistic. Competition with Belgium is very big with Lukaku, Batshuayi, Origi, Benteke and now Dimata. They are all still young.

“In Nigeria there are also top players, but maybe there I will be given a shot.”

Dressers recently joined Eredivisie side, FC Utrecht, from NAC Breda where he scored 29 goals in the regular season and playoffs.
