Cyriel Dessers joins Nigeria’s 100 goal club

After his outstanding performance against PSV on Sunday, Cyriel Dessers has now scored 100 official career goals.

After his outstanding performance against PSV on Sunday, Cyriel Dessers has now scored 100 official career goals.

Dessers scored in the 2-2 draw to truncate PSV’s title hopes and keep his strong form going at De Kuip.

It was his 18th goal of the season in all competitions, a major accomplishment given how he began the season.

The Nigerians commented on how great the goal is, and how special De Kuip is for scoring a century of goals.

No better place to score your 100th official goal than in an exploding cockpit,” he tweeted.

Dessers has developed into a fan favorite at Feyenoord and is the subject of a €4 million transfer saga between his parent club KRC Genk and Feyenoord.

While he is surplus to the Belgian club’s requirements, he is coveted by Rotterdammers fans, who have even put up a crowdsourcing campaign to gain his permanent acquisition.

Cyriel Dessers has ten goals in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League where he’s one goal better than AS Roma’s Tammy Abraham.

The one cap Super Eagles now joins Victor Ikpeba, Nwankwo Kanu, Ikechukwu Uche, Obafemi Martins, Odion Ighalo, John Utaka and Rasheed Yekini on the list of Nigerians to have scored atleast 100 career goals.

Odion Ighalo heaps praise on Emmanuel Dennis, tips Watford to beat the drop

Ighalo was fantastic at Watford, but Dennis, who only arrived last summer, could overshadow him if he keeps up his current form.

Odion Ighalo praised Watford striker and compatriot, Emmanuel Dennis for his outstanding efforts for the Hornets this season.

Dennis moved to Vicarage Road from Club Brugge last summer, and he has been nothing short of outstanding so far.

He has made no mistake in establishing himself as the team’s major outlet, as the 24-year-old has been involved in 14 of Watford’s 24 goals this season.

Dennis needs one more goal to become the fourth Watford player to score 10 or more Premier League goals in a single season.

Ighalo is one of Watford’s all time top strikers in the premier league as he was a standout performer during his time at the club. 

He has however been impressed with Dennis’ performances thus far.

“He’s a very good player, with good technique, he’s fast, he can score goals, he’s very intelligent,” Ighalo told Watford TV

“He just needs to keep fit and keep taking his chances and scoring goals.

I think if the season is going to turn around, and they are going to be safe, then they have to keep Emmanuel Dennis, Sarr, and King firing. Get a couple of goals home and away; then I think the team can escape relegation.” He added.

Watford are currently 19th in the Premier League, four points from safety. Dennis, on the other hand, has put on some excellent performances this season, so it would be surprising if he went down with them.
