The Nigeria international has been the king of the Conference League this season, but he showed he could still get the job done in the Eredivisie, to the delight of Ajax fans
Europa Conference League top-scorer Cyriel Dessers delivered another memorable performance to help Feyenoord come from two goals down to draw 2-2 against title-chasing PSV in their week 32 Eredivisie clash on Sunday.
Dessers scored twice in the closing stages of the encounter to all but extinguish any hope PSV had of wrestling the league titles from their bitter rivals.
It all could have ended differently, though, as the visitors were cruising courtesy of Cody Gakpo’s first-half brace.
But Dessers had other ideas, and that man of the moment halved the home side’s deficit with four minutes left on the clock.
And PSV’s worst nightmare became a reality after the referee awarded Feyenoord a controversial penalty deep into stoppage time.
Dessers then kept his cool to slot home the equaliser, with goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo choosing the wrong side.
While the win helps Feyenoord tighten their grip on the third spot, it robs PSV of the three points needed to stay in touch with leaders Ajax.
Four points now exist between the two teams with only two matches left, and Ajax will claim their 36th Eredivisie title with a win at home to Heerenveen on Wednesday.
