Samuel Chukwueze Bags Assist As Villarreal Thrash Rapid Wien In Europa League


Highly rated Nigerian teen sensation Samuel Chukwueze was once again handed game time at Villarreal as they ran out 5-0 winners over Austrian side Rapid Wien.


Chukwueze has made the step up to the first team of the La Liga outfit way quicker than many expected and he was once again on parade in the Europa League for the third time this season since his debut in their firs group game against Scottish side Rangers.

He was introduced in the 64th minute, a step up from their La Liga game against Espanyol where he was left on the bench for the entire duration of the game which they won 3-1 last weekend.

Although Villarreal were reduced to ten men following the sending off of Jaume Costa with around ten minutes left to play, they still added a fifth goal with Chukwueze claiming the assist for the goal scored by Gerard Moreno.

Rated as one of the top prospects in the Spanish top flight, his rating will no doubt soar after today’s game and he could possibly make his league bow very soon and a possible call up to the senior national team of Nigeria is currently been mooted.
