Cyriel Dessers finished the Dutch League season with nine league goals but his final goal on the last game of the season came little too late to rescue a point off fourth placed FC Twente who were 2-1 winners over Feyenoord in Rotterdam.
Dessers who was last week recalled to the Super Eagles for the two friendly games with Mexico and Ecuador in the United States on May 29th and June 2nd scored in the 68th minute to reduce his side’s goals arrears but they were unable to rally back to earn at least a draw in his 27th league appearance of the season.
Feyenoord did finish third with 71 points from 34 games behind PSV and Ajax who ended in the second and first positions with 81 and 83 points in that order but they will look forward to the final of the Europa Conference League with a date with AS Roma later this month.
It was Dessers goals that helped them nick the final ticket with 10 goals from 12 appearances in the Europa Conference League alone. He is the competition’s leading scorer. Feyenoord are also through to the Europa League next season.
