Ex-Eaglet Chukwueze Scores As Villarreal B Cruise Into Spanish Promotion Play-off Final

Former Golden Eaglets star Samuel Chukwueze was on target for Villarreal B who beat Fuenlabrada 2-0 in the semi-final second-leg Spanish Segunda B (third division) promotion play-off on Sunday for a 2-0 aggregate after the first-leg ended 0-0.
Chukwueze scored in the 19th minute to put Villarreal B 1-0 before Daniel Raba doubled their lead in the 71st minute.

In the final, Villarreal B will face Extremadura who eliminated Mirandes 2-1 on aggregate.

Chukwueze who was a former Diamond Academy player, was an integral member of the Golden Eaglets side that won the 2015 FIFA  U-17 World Cup in Chile where he won the Bronze Boot.

He started the season with Villarreal’s U-19 team and also played for the team C, but after an impressive campaign which saw him
net seven goals playing from the wings including a stunning hat-trick  in an 8-3 win over UCD Murcia, he was promoted to the team B.

  • A superstar in the making. Massive talent. He is highly rated in villarreal now. Will be promoted to the first team soon

  • Here is a player that has abundance of talent. He plays like the flying Dutchman arjen robben. His got a wicked left foot and highly intelligent, traits that the current SE lacks. An actual left winger, he is fast, can dribble and can also finish. This is a player like nwakali, Musa yahaya osihmem that can add value to SE in d near future. The future looks really bright for 9ja football.

    By the way Who is our u23 coach and shouldnt he already be thinking of players to use to execute the olympic qualifiers and penciling players like these down? I hope for 9ja sake there is already a coach on ground and we avoid the fire brigade attitude of planning only when tournaments are upon us.

    God bless 9ja and its people
