In this past, Cyriel Dessers proved to be a most prized asset with late match winners in three straight games for top Dutch club Feyenoord. The striker is most certainly enjoying a new lease of life back in Holland after a rather tough time at home town club Genk last season.
The forward has finally got going back in the Turkish Super Lig with his first goal in over a year for troubled Antalyaspor. This weekend’s home win over promoted Altay has moved Antalyaspor five points clear of the drop zone. But it is still a big mystery why he could not attract even a modest club in mainland Europe after a decent loan spell at Belgian giants Anderlecht last season.
This exciting youngster looks set to take the next big step in his very promising career with a big transfer in the winter after what he has showed at Swedish club Hammarby this outgoing season. He scored his ninth goal for the Swedish Cup winners to help them edge Orebro 3-2 as they battle to finish in the Top-4 with three rounds of games still to be played.
The highly-rated midfielder crowned his return to the starting XI at Antwerp with his first goal in Belgium since his summer move from Swedish club IFK Goteborg. He has overcome a groin injury that lasted longer than expected to reclaim his place at Antwerp, who are now second on the table courtesy of a 2-0 home win over arch-rivals Anderlecht.
Okereke’s goals have continued to give promoted Venezia hope that they can survive the drop from Serie A this season. The Club Brugge loanee delivered the winning goal against visiting AS Roma for Venezia to move three points clear of the relegation zone. He has now scored three goals since his return to Italy this summer.
He has been the most outstanding Nigeria striker in Europe this past week after coming off the bench to score in three straight games for Dutch giants Feyenoord. He was the late match winner in the Rotterdam Derby versus Sparta and days later he produced another late goal to sink Bundesliga club Union Berlin in the UEFA Europa Conference League. The Super Sub then fired the only goal for Feyenoord to stop AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch league Sunday. It has been a most eventful past week for a striker who suffered from lack of game time at hometown club Genk in Belgium last season no thanks to the awesome form of fellow Super Eagles striker Paul Onauchu.
