I Have No Regret In Picking Nigeria Over Belgium 


Belgium-born Nigeria striker Cyril Dessers has insisted that he has no regret in choosing to play for Nigeria at the expense of Belgium.

Despite being consistent in scoring for his club in Europe, Dessers has been frozen out of the national team due to the presence of better attackers.

Rangers of Scotland striker admitted that the competition in the Super Eagles is absurd but welcomed the development in the team.

“The last few times I was in the Nigeria pre-selection squad, but not in the final selection. If you look at the other strikers and the form that are in, I can understand that.

“We have a few players competing to be the third or fourth striker and then it depends on form. The competition in Nigeria is absurd.

“I could have chosen to play for Belgium, but I am very happy with my choice. I have already experienced fantastic moments.

“My first international goal, in front of a hundred thousand spectators against Mexico in Dallas, is a moment I will never forget”, he told Daily Record.
