There’s no going back playing for Nigeria – Dessers

Cyriel Dessers is totally committed his international future to Nigeria, and there is no going back on the decision.

The player had to deny the hint that he was planning to return to Belgium and dump Nigeria.

The player re-affirmed his pledge to his fatherland on his twitter handle: ‘I am committed to playing for Nigeria”.

Dessers, 24, was born in Leuven to a Belgian father and qualifies for Nigeria through his mother.

The Genk striker was set to make his debut for Nigeria in March, but the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying doubleheader against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone was called off as a result of the outbreak of the Covid-19.

“One of my best friends is a video analyst of the Red Devils (Belgium), so I sometimes catch up on something, but I have not yet spoken to Roberto Martinez myself,” Dessers told Het Belang van Limburg.

“I now focus on Genk and make goals, the rest will come naturally. That has always been my motto. At the moment, the national team is not an issue, we will not know until September.

“Maybe I will be summoned somewhere, maybe not.”

Dessers was the joint top scorer with 15 goals in the Dutch League last season.
