Mexico v Nigeria, couldn’t be more proud to score my 1st international goal,” Dessers wrote on his twitter page.

Under the new coach, Jose Peseiro, the Feyenoord star, who is already trying to make up for lost time with the national team, had a strong performance.

The forward arrived on Wednesday after flying from Albania to the Netherlands and then to the United States. Despite being jet lagged, he managed to train with the team on Friday and scored for the Eagles.
