Chukwueze scores stunning goal in Villarreal win

Nigerian striker Samuel Chukwueze scored a stunning goal from the edge of the box as Villarreal beat Levante 2-0 at the Estadi Ciutat de València.

The 19-year-old came in as a substitute for Moreno Gerard in the 63rd minute when the game was still 0-0.

Chukwueze quickly made his presence felt by putting pressure on Levante’s defenders which eventually lead to Rober scoring an own goal in the 93rd minute.

The final goal of the game came in the 96th minute injury time when Chukwueze curled in the ball beautifully from just outside the box after receiving a pass from Santi Cazorla.

Villarreal are currently battling relegation in the La Liga sitting at the 17th position with 26 points, just 4 points above 20th placed Huesca.
