‘I Want More’ — Dessers Targets More Goals For Rangers After Scoring Winner Vs St. Mirren

Cyriel Dessers is determined to score more goals for Rangers after scoring the winning the goal in the club’s 2-1 win at St. Mirren on Sunday.

Dessers fired home the decisive goal 14 minutes from time.

It was the Nigeria international’s 20th across all competitions for the Light Blues this season.

“Not a lot of Rangers strikers got there in the last years so I think it is a nice milestone for me.

“To score a winner in a game like that feels good. There is no room for errors now so we are very happy we got the win.

“It is not new for Tav – not only this season but also in his whole career, he has give many assists like this, but it was an unbelievable cross which the goalkeeper misread and I was there to make the goal.

“This is a tricky place and we knew that before the game. I think without maybe having a real superstar, this is one of the best teams in the league and you could see they had a clear game plan which they executed well and gave us a lot of difficulties.

“But, we were patient, we knew our moments would come, they would get tired and we made good use of that.”

Dessers also praised goalkeeper Jack Butland for his contribution – which included an incredible stop on the brink of half-time to ensure the scores remained level.

He continued: “That’s not new either! Jack has been there for us in important moments and today is a game he can pick out as an important game again with some great saves, especially the one right before half time was unbelievable.”

    Of course you have to because that is the spirit of a good striker. Never satisfied with your performance and keep improving yourself in every game you play.

    Our goal machine Dessers will be scoring for fun in the national team and at his club side because he is playing regularly for Rangers and his confidence is back now. Let’s be patient with him and other

    Congratulations to Dessers. I’m very happy for him.

    I’m not satisfied with him yet because he hasn’t reached his potentials yet but he’s always improving and have to take his chances in front of goal in both his club side and at the national team.

    That said kę. At the national team, hmm that is different entirely.

    This is why Amunike have to be the next coach of the Super Eagles.

    I love the relationship between Amunike Oshimen and other players at the under 17.

    More so, Amunike need to change the way our midfielders and the entire team plays.

    Our strikers are not clinical enough in front of goal. From Oshimen to Ayoniyi and now Dessers at the national team.

    This should a concern for Amunike. I think the problem is, our strikers are more relaxed and taking the national team for granted. Simply put, indiscipline.

    Another thing is, calmness. If you are not calm and well calculated as a striker, you will keep misfiring in front of goal.

    Our main strikers now are Oshimen, Boniface, Dessers and Moffi.

    Amunike have to figure out the system and utilize each striker and every strikers to their potentials.

    As we are about to celebrate with Amunike as the new Super Eagles manager,
    let’s be patient with our strikers.

    Amunike will solve the problems of the Super Eagles soon. Although Amunike can not do it all without supporting him. Let’s work collectively to achieve our goals with the Super Eagles. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
