Substitute Samuel Chukwueze scored an injury time goal as Villarreal defeated unlucky Levante 2-0 in the La Liga Santander on Sunday night, reports Footballlive.ng.
Levante who featured Super Eagles winger Moses Simon for the entirety of the game deserved at least a point for their efforts.
The Yellow Submarines broke the spine of the homers with two heartbreaking goals at the dying embers of the game.
Chukwueze who had struggled for form and game time in 2019 was named in the Villarreal match day squad.
The tricky winger last hit the back of the net in a Europa League match against Spartak Moscow on 13th December 2018.
His goal to end the match at Levante was tremendous, bringing him on for Gerard was a good thing anyway. The visitors needed someone who could run at and disrupt the opposition.
This performance offered the perfect illustration of Chukwueze as a player. He was lively and provided Villarreal with a reliable outlet. It was clear from when he came on that the winger was up for the game. He remains an extremely raw talent, but he is a talent nonetheless and he showed that in this game.
