    Am so excited about Dessers kolawole success. Where are those that bringing Dessers down all this while?

    Where is coach Eguavoen today? Where is Oga Rohr today? Where is Oga Rohr followers who said Dessers wasn’t good enough to represent Nigeria?

    I am super excited kę. Oga Rohr did not see anything good in Dessers and our own coach Eguavoen also lied woefully to Nigeria that he did not know much about Dessers. Now, they should all come out and apologize to Dessers and I omo9ja. Anything less than this is not acceptable.

    If Dessers fails to represent Nigeria, I won’t forgive you Oga Rohr, Amaju Pinnick, Mr. Eguavoen and Oga Rohr fans. Fingers crossed. Congratulations to our Dessers kolawole. Hmm. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dessers called the Same Oga Rohr to seek advice when he wanted to make that shock move to Feyenoord. Back then, Bordeaux was an Option for him.
      If u become coach in the nearest future extend invitation to someone on the bench ahead of then 33 goal scorer.
      The same Rohr later saw him as replacement for injured Osimhen before Nation’s Cup and included him in the list of 40 but thanks to Eguavoen that you clamored for to come and do the damage. Shameless man.

        Lies. This wotowoto is getting too much and it can never take Super Eagles any where kę.

        We keep lying to ourselves each and every corner and every day mba, Onuachu was not better than Dessers at Genk.

        Onuachu was Genk main striker then and Dessers was totally new to the team and it was hard for Dessers to be playing regularly because of Onuachu.

        Not that Dessers wasn’t matured or not good to compete with Onuachu but the chance wasn’t there for him to showcase his talent at Genk.

        In fact, Dessers used to score goals at Genk back then. Am I lying ba?

        If you all remember, I have been clamoring for Dessers for more than 3 to 4 years now.

        Before Genk and Feyenoord, Dessers has been scoring for fun. Cyriel Dessers has been experienced a great debut season at Heracles Almelo.

        Scoring 15 goals in 26 games, the Belgian-Nigerian striker has become the top striker Dutch Eredivisie, gaining the interest of clubs outside of the Netherlands, such as Galatasaray and so on back then.

        So, if you people doesn’t know anything about Cyriel Dessers kolawole, please don’t hesitate to ask or don’t say a single word about him.

        Dessers has been a goal machine since his first club. I have been following Dessers for so so long kę.

        Kai, stop lying to me you people. Onuachu, Olayinka, Awoniyi, Ighalo and Osimhen are not ahead of Dessers.

        The fact is that, Oga Rohr and Mr. Eguavoen were marketers during their time and they brought their players into the Super Eagles while our best players wasn’t given a chance to represent their fatherland.

        No striker, oh I repeat, no striker in the Super Eagles currently that have what it takes to bench Dessers. Even though Osimhen is our main striker but he can’t bench Cyriel Dessers.

        For now, Osimhen and Dessers are the best strikers we have but to my surprise, Salisu Yusuf said he wanted Ighalo and Musa back in the Super Eagles.

        So, Ighalo and Musa will play against Mexico and Ecuador and also when Eagles start their Afcon qualifiers.

        What nepotism will cause in this country, am so sorry for NFF.

        Edoman that is now shanty Dessers name was the one asking Oga Rohr and coach Eguavoen to overlooked Dessers because of Ighalo.

        @Sean, stop pretending. You knew what Dessers was capable of doing before Genk.

        You have been in this game for so long ba? But why are you lying like this kę?

        Let’s leave this lies aside and celebrate our hottest striker. Dessers deserved a loud ovation my people. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Will stupid eguavoen still claim he doesn’t know too much about the ability of this guy? Shameless people everywhere in this jungle of a Nation

    Dessers is in formable form as of today. l am extremely happy for him. But, at a time Rohr called him to the National Team, it was obvious that he was struggling even in his Club, Gent. That was the main reason he was loaned out to Feyenoord at the time, as he could not compete with Pual Onuachu playing as a striker in Gent. Even if Egueavon had recalled Dessers into the Super Eagle, l wonder if he could have bench Osimhen in that striking position. In my opinion, Dessers today deserves for a recall to the National Team to compete for a position just like Akin Amoo.

    • JimmyBall 2 years ago

      @Edoman… Must one striker bench another to play? Don’t football have any formation that plays two strikers or three? Just like they invited Ighalo and wasted him on the bench playing only Osimhen who was doing acrobatic to score… If we had played a forward line of twin strikers or 3 strikers in a 352 or 343 or 433 Ghana would not have survived it… But poor Eguaveon knows nothing other than wingplay, 424 or 505 comical formations… We failed because Eguaveon was bereft of Coaching ideas… a humongous quack!

    And Osimihen has given us the World Cup ticket, bunch of jesters. These are the same forces that made us lose loose  Alaba to Austria, most of them are blinded by tribalism, nepotism and sentiments, inviting Ighalo, Musa, and Sadiq over Awoniyi and Dessers was injustice done to these players. Imagine Onazi made the standby list over Dessers, remind me they play different positions Abi?
