Chukwueze's Stock Continues To Rise : Teenage Winger Makes Domestic Debut For VillarrealPublished: November 01, 2018
Super Eagles invitee Samuel Chukwueze's stock continues to be on the rise with the winger ready to make his domestic debut for Villarreal on Thursday evening.
The 19-year-old has been named in the starting lineup for the Copa del Rey Round of 32 first-leg tie against Almeria which will take place at the Estadio Juegos del Mediterráneo.
Chukwueze's three previous appearances for the first team of the Yellow Submarine came in European matches against Rangers, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna.
He netted both of Villarreal B's goals in a 2-1 win over Atlético Baleares on October 28 and was rewarded with a maiden call-up to the Super Eagles the following day.
If he gets some minutes in Sunday's tie against Moses Simon's Levante, he would become the fifth youngest Nigerian to debut in La Liga behind Isaac Success, Sunday Stephen, Francis Uzoho and Uche Agbo.
Chukwueze was an unused substitute in Villarreal's 3-1 loss to Espanyol on October 7.
