Wear Green & White Jersey Dessers

Gernot Rohr has named his 24 man squad for Super Eagles Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Leone Stars of Sierra Leone and Heracles Almelo striker Cyriel Dessers was included.

Following the news that he has been handed a maiden call up, Dessers has revealed he can’t wait to don the green and white jersey of Nigeria.

The former Utrecht man could end up making his international debut when Nigeria play Sierra Leone in a doubleheader AFCON qualifier this month.

The 25-year-old took to his Twitter account to express his delight at the invitation, while he also revealed he is eager to meet his new teammates.

Dessers is Dutch’s top-flight highest goalscorer with 15 goals in 25 appearances for Heracles Almelo this season.

Nigeria take on Sierra Leone on March 27th at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, while the return leg holds in Freetown five days later.
