Nigerian, Dessers, named Dutch Eredivisie Player of the Month

Heracles’ Nigerian forward Cyriel Dessers has won the Dutch Eredivisie Player of the Month award for November.
Dessers, who is the leading scorer in the Netherlands with 11 goals, scored six goals in four league outings in the month under review.
The 24-year-old scored a hat-trick against VVV Venlo on November 9 and gave Heracles a consolation goal in their 4-1 defeat to Ajax on November 23.

Seven days later, he grabbed a brace that helped the Polman Stadion outfit romp to a 4-0 win over ADO Den Haag.
Dessers is enjoying a fine start to life in the city of Almelo since his arrival from Utrecht in July and has been directly involved in 16 goals in the league, including five assists.

Born in Belgium to a Nigerian mother, the 24-year-old is eligible to play for the Super Eagles at international level and has disclosed on-going talks with the Nigeria Football Federation over switching his allegiance to the African nation.
