Super Eagles forward Cyriel Dessers is elated to get his maiden international goal for Nigeria.
Dessers was on target in the Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Mexico at the AT & T Stadium in Dallas on Sunday.
Santiago Gimenez got the opening goal for Mexico after 12 minutes of play, before the Feyenoord’s striker headed home a teasing cross from man of the moment Calvin Bassey to draw Nigeria level.
However, William Troost-Ekong diverted a simple cross to his net and handed the Mexican important win.
Despite the defeat, Dessers said, he’s proud to score for Nigeria.
