Feyenoord attacker, Cyriel Dessers is ready for Thursday's UEFA conference League semi-final clash against Ligue 1 giants Marseille at Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam)

The Dutch-born Nigerian forward has been in an impressive form for Feyenoord this season.

He has scored 8 goals in the maiden Conference League and is joint top scorer with Roma's Tammy Abraham.

His double against Slavia Prague in the second leg of the quarter finals sealed Feyenoord's qualification to the last four.

The 27-year-old is willing to give his best to ensure his side progresses to the finals of an European competition for the first time in twenty years.

“De Kuip(Feyenoord stadium) is special anyway, but the European evenings have some extras,” Dessers told the Feyenoord website.

“I expect it to be one of the best matches of my career. This is what you dream of if you want to become a footballer as a child.”
