Dessers, Moffis must prove themselves for Nigeria – Coach
Nigerian strikers Terem Moffis and Cyriel Dessers must prove themselves worthy of a Super Eagles shirt to become regulars.
In an interview with Nigerian sports tabloid Complete Sports, former Kwara United manager Samson Unuanel said the duo must use the friendly against the Desert Foxes of Algeria to make a stake for regular playing time.
He said the absence of Victor Oshimen and Emmanuel Dennis could be a silver lining.
“Terem Moffi and Cyriel Dessers are two quality strikers with proven goal scoring records. They may not have gotten the opportunity of staking a regular shirt in the Super Eagles, however, I am convinced that are top quality strikers.
“The truth is, they have plenty to prove in the senior national team now that Victor Osimehn won’t be part of the team for the Algeria game. There is no better time to convince the Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro if not now,” said Unuanel.
Both Nigeria and Algeria are using the friendly match to regroup after failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
