Cyriel Dessers Sends Message To S’Eagles Fans Ahead Of Algeria/Tunisia Friendlies

Super Eagles new striker Cyriel Dessers has spoken about his eagerness to meet the Nigeria fans ahead of the forthcoming friendlies against Algeria and Tunisia.

Dessers talked about this from the Super Eagles camp in Austria where the team has been training.

Meanwhile, the stand-in player, Frank Onyeka, for injured Wilfred Ndidi and Oghenekaro Etebo in Super Eagles defensive midfield suffered a knock in training and could now be a doubt for the clash.

Injuries to established stars Ndidi and Etebo had opened the door wider for the box-to-box FC Midtjylland midfielder to impress Genort Rohr.

Rangers defensive midfielder Joe Aribo had also been ruled out no thanks to injury.

Portugal-based Mikel Agu and Golden Eaglets skipper Samson Tijani will now jump up the pecking order of defensive midfield choices for the team.
