Samuel Chukwueze On Target In Villarreal’s Eight-Goal Thriller


Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze continued his good form after he found the back of the net on Saturday.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria star was one of the standout performers for the three-time African champions at this year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The 20-year-old helped Nigeria secure third spot at the end of the tournament won by the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

He has carried that good form into the new Spanish La Liga season.

Samuel Chukwueze was on target for the Yellow Submarine as they shared an eight-goal thriller with newly promoted club Granada at home.

Granada are back with the big boys in the Spanish top flight after just one season in the second tier.

Samuel Chukwueze hit the back of the net on 73 minutes to give Villarreal a 4-2 lead but it was not enough as the visitors struck twice to take a point from the lively encounter.

Samuel Chukwueze is highly rated in the Spanish top flight.

The young Nigerian attacker is widely regarded as one of the most talented African players in the Spanish La Liga.

Samuel Chukwueze was previously linked with Premier League clubs like Arsenal and Manchester City but it seems like he would stay at Villarreal for this season at least.
