Battle Of Nigeria Wingers : Villarreal's Chukwueze Scores & Outshines Levante's SimonPublished: March 10, 2019
Samuel Chukwueze came off the bench on Sunday evening to inspire Villarreal to a 2-0 victory over Levante, scoring a sensational goal in their Spanish topflight clash.
The youngster rattled home an unstoppable drive from the right side of the box to the bottom left corner shortly after they have gone ahead courtesy of an own goal from Rober Pier in the closing stages before wheeling away to celebrate with the Zanku dance.
The 19-year-old who spent barely 27 minutes on the field of play looked very sharp after coming on for Gerard Moreno in the second half and nearly headed in a Jaume Costa's cross in the 88th minute but narrowly missed to the left.
Stats from statistical website whoscored backed up his impressive cameo as he had a pass success rate of 71 per cent, won one aerial, made one tackle and had two shots of which one resulted to his goal.
Thus, he has directly contributed to eight goals in 26 games in all competition for the Yellow Submarines with his effort at the Estadi Ciutat de València this evening.
His compatriot, Moses Simon starring for the opposition started and logged the full ninety of the game.
