Belgium-born Nigeria striker Cyril Dessers has insisted that he has no regret choosing to play for Nigeria at the expense of Belgium.
Dessers has been frozen out of the national team due to the presence of better attackers despite being consistent in scoring for his clubside, Rangers.
Dessers said that his recent omissions are understandable given the form other strikers in the national team are in but stated his ambition to be selected for the African Cup of Nations.
“The last few times I was in the Nigeria pre-selection squad, but not in the final selection. If you look at the other strikers and the form that are in, I can understand that.
“We have a few players competing to be the third or fourth striker and then it depends on form. The competition in Nigeria is absurd.”
“I could have chosen to play for Belgium, but I am very happy with my choice. I have already experienced fantastic moments.”
