NFF contacted Nigeria prospect ahead of Super Eagles call up


NFF have contacted Nigeria prospect Cyriel Dessers ahead of playing for Super Eagles after his declaration to switch allegiance to three-time Africa Champions from Belgium.The 24-year-old forward who is the leading scorer in the Eredivisie scorers’ chart with 11 goals and five assists in 15 league appearances this season for Heracles Almelo and he was named the league’s November Player of the MonthDessers who was born to a Belgian father and a Nigerian mother, caught the attention of the world when he declared his intentions to play for Nigeria in senior international level ahead of Belgium.The Super Eagles hopeful told Sporza that he was contacted by Nigeria’s assistant coach after contributing to three goals (2 goals, 1 assist) in their last weekend’s 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag.”There has already been contacted with the Nigerian association. After the match against ADO Den Haag, the assistant from Nigeria sent me a message that I was doing well,” “But that is not going to be easy either because there are 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.”The NFF are also in talks with Queens Park Rangers’ Eberechi Eze over a possible call-up who has played for the England U-21 team.
