Dessers holds no Grudges over Super Eagles Snub


Cyriel Dessers says he’s happy with his decision to pick Nigeria, despite his lack of playing opportunity.

Dessers admits he’s having challenges becoming a Super Eagles regular due to the overwhelming qualities in attack.



The Forward made his International debut three years ago, but has managed to win just four caps since then and last featured in 2-1 defeat to Algeria in an international friendly game twelve months ago.

“The last few times I was in the Nigeria pre-selection squad, but not in the final selection,” Dessers told the Daily Record.

“If you look at the other strikers and the form that are in, I can understand that.

“We have a few players competing to be the third or fourth striker and then it depends on form. The competition in Nigeria is absurd.

“I could have chosen to play for Belgium, but I am very happy with my choice. I have already experienced fantastic moments.

“My first international goal, in front of a hundred thousand spectators against Mexico in Dallas, is a moment I will never forget.”

The former Feyenoord star is likely to be left out of the Nigeria’s squad for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers this month.
