Dessers Rues Missed Super Eagles Debut against Sierra Leone

first_imgHeracles’ striker Cyriel Dessers – who finished the Dutch Eredivisie season as joint top scorer – has told the BBC Sports that missing out on his Nigeria debut because of the coronavirus pandemic was “painful”.Dessers, 25 – who was tied on 15 goals with Ajax’s Steven Berghuis at the top of the goal-scoring charts when the Dutch campaign ended early – received his first Super Eagles call-up in March.He was included in Gernot Rohr’s squad for an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone, but the match was put on hold because of the Covid-19 crisis, denying Dessers a chance to represent the country of his mother’s birth. Cyril Dessers …missed debut for Nigeria last March “It hurt me because I thought it was going to be one of the best moments of my life – or at least my career – and that it didn’t go through was really painful,” Dessers told BBC Sport Africa.When he finally joins up with the Super Eagles, it will be his first time visiting Nigeria. But the Belgium-born striker says he has been hooked on the African nation’s rich football history since he was a boy.“When I was 12 years old, during technical trainings at my academy, every player had to choose one skill or move. Some kids did the scissors kick or Ronaldinho but mine was always the Okocha moves,” he recalled. “I loved him when I was a kid.”Dessers, who studied law at the University in Belgium, also vividly remembers watching Nigeria win her third Nations Cup in 2013. “It was really special because at that moment I was in college studying. I wasn’t even a professional football player, I remember being so happy – with John Obi Mikel the captain, Emmanuel Emenike with the goals. It was a special moment for sure.”Six years later, he was thrilled to see some of his future national teammates winning bronze at Egypt 2019 and is hopeful that he will be “accepted” into Nigeria’s “really nice group.”“I know it’s a young team, a lot of players playing in Europe, so I think that the adaptation would be fine and I hope when I come into the team they accept me.“I am looking forward to seeing Victor Osimhen, I like to watch a lot of football and watch the strikers and I think he is a great striker, and I hope I can help him and support him.”Cyriel Dessers became the second African behind Ivorian Wilfred Bony to finish as top goalscorer in the Eredivisie.He joins an illustrious list of names to have accomplished the feat including Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp, Ronaldo, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Luis Suarez.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img

OPBAS has been set-up to bring tackle this issue by simplifying the nations AML code and practices between industries and their representative stakeholder bodies.UK Business Minister Lord Prior said: “The Cutting Red Tape Review asked firms to identify needless, confusing or unclear bureaucracy that could constrain legitimate business and distract from the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.“We are committed to making the system work better for the majority of law-abiding British businesses. The evidence submitted from a wide range of businesses, trade bodies, NGOs and other organisations has been invaluable in developing our approach to removing unnecessary burdens while stepping up the fight against money laundering.” StumbleUpon Share Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020 UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 UKGC hails ‘delivered efficiencies’ of its revamped licence maintenance service  August 20, 2020 Sharelast_img
