Belgian born Nigerian free scoring forward Cyriel Dessers has confirmed that contact has been made with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) regarding a potential invitation to the senior national team of Nigeria.
Last week Dessers confirmed his desires to play for Nigeria ahead of Belgium, where his father hails from, citing the huge numbers of players ahead of him in the pecking order in Belgium as part of his reasons.
Dessers in an interview with Voetball confirmed contact has been made with the NFF over an invitation to the senior national team of Nigeria, but he is for now fully focused on doing his best for his new team Utrecht.
Last season Dessers fired NAC Breda to promotion with 22 goals in the regular season before adding seven more during the relegation/promotion play offs in Holland, and his feat earned him a move to Utrecht.
Nigeria are presently on the lookout for a top striker and 22 year old Dessers is now widely regarded as a sure candidate for the role, if he continues his fine form for NAC Breda last season with Utrecht in the top flight next season.
