Nigeria’s Dutch Eredivisie top scorer Cyriel Dessers has said that he is very bored and misses the round leather game of football, reports.

Dessers has scored 15 times this season in the Eredivisie, making him the joint top scorer in the league and was having a great season before the novel coronavirus struck and shut down the game he loves.

Dessers, who also possesses a Belgian heritage, was delighted when he was recently called up for the first to feature for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

“I miss football a lot but there is nothing we can do for now except to ensure we fight to stay alive,” says the former FC Utrecht forward.

The player, however, reiterated the need to take personal hygiene seriously in the wake of the global pandemic.

“To fight this virus and stay alive, we must maintain social distance, wash our hands properly at least for 20 seconds and stay hydrated and avoid sneezing and coughing improperly in public,” he concluded.
