Cyriel Dessers bags goal number 22 as Rangers win big

Super Eagles striker Cyriel Dessers continues to make waves with his outstanding performances for his club, Glasgow Rangers, bagging his 22nd goal of the season in the win over Dundee.

The 29-year-old’s latest feat came as he scored the crucial equalizer in Rangers’ 5-2 victory over Dundee FC, further solidifying his position as a key player for the team.

Dessers’ goal against Dundee FC marks his 22nd of the season across all competitions, with an impressive 16 of those goals coming in the league. This remarkable scoring record points to his importance to Rangers and highlights his potency in front of goal.

Notably, Dessers’ goal-scoring prowess has not gone unnoticed by Super Eagles boss Finidi George, who recently took charge as the national team’s permanent coach. Dessers previously found the back of the net in Nigeria’s friendly win against Ghana, signaling his readiness to contribute at the international level.

Following his impactful performance for Rangers, Dessers will be eager to earn a recall to the Super Eagles squad as Nigeria sets its sights on the 2026 FIFA World Cup. With his impressive goal-scoring form and proven ability to deliver on the big stage, Dessers could play a crucial role in Nigeria’s quest for victory over South Africa and Benin Republic.

Having already made a significant impact for the Super Eagles during Finidi’s interim stint, Dessers’ continued excellence at club level only strengthens his case for inclusion in the national team.

With Finidi George at the helm, Dessers will be hopeful of receiving further opportunities to showcase his talent and contribute to Nigeria’s footballing aspirations.

Meanwhile, the list of Super Eagles player for International engagements in June has not yet been released.
