Hotter Than Lewandowski : Belgian-Born Striker Who Wants To Play For Eagles Is Nigeria's Top Scorer In EuropePublished: December 01, 2019
After scoring a brace for Heracles Almelo in their 4-0 hammering of ADO Den Haag on Saturday, Belgian-born frontman Cyriel Dessers has overtaken former Dream Team striker Umar Sadiq as the leading Nigeria-eligible scorer in the European Leagues for the 2019-2020 season, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.
While Dessers has 11 goals to his name from 15 appearances in the Dutch Eredivisie, the Roma loanee has found the net on ten occasions for Partizan Belgrade.
The 24-year-old is in the form of his life, having contributed to 15 goals (10 goals, 5 assists) in his last ten league matches, something that the top scorer in Europe's top five leagues, Robert Lewandowski has not managed to do in his last 10 Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich (10 goals, 1 assist).
Whether or not Dessers scores in Heracles Almelo's next three matches against Sparta Rotterdam, Utrecht and Heerenveen before the end of 2019, he has already equaled the best half of a season in his professional career.
The former NAC Breda star notched up 11 goals in the first half of the 2016-2017 season while playing in the Dutch second-tier.
Dessers previously informed allnigeriasoccer.com
that it would be a huge honour to play for Nigeria and his mom and dad would be proud of the decision.
