Super Eagles star, Cyriel Dessers was involved for the whole duration of the game against Olympique Marseille
Feyenoord held the French giants at the majestic Stade de Velodrome on Thursday to qualify for their first European final in 20 years.
Dessers, their on-loan Belgian-born Nigerian forward played a major role in the qualification as he scored a brace at De Kuip to give Feyenoord a 3-2 lead.
With a majestic ground and some of the loudest and most hostile fans on football playing as the twelfth man for Marseille, Arne Slot’s men held off the pressure and held on to their first leg lead.
A cheerful Dessers hours after the game is still on cloud nine about the result and what is ahead of the club.
Despite concerns about his immediate future amid the difficulty of Feyenoord in splashing Genk’s €4m asking price, the attacker is focused on the road and the journey ahead.
Tirana, here we come!🏆

Dessers’ 10 goals in the Europa Conference League this season puts him in stead for the award as the top scorer.
He’s closely followed by Tammy Abraham, with 9 goals for AS Roma. Both attackers are expected to lead the line for their teams at the final in Tirana, Albania.
