Super-Sub Chukwueze Bag Decisive Assists in Villarreal's Late Win

Youngster, Samuel Chukwueze's tricky dribbles paid off in Villarreal CF 2-0 victory over stubborn Real Valladolid in the Last Liga Santander on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Nigerian winger took responsibility off the bench to win the match decisive spot-kick with his first few touches as Santi Cazorla steps up to do the rest from six yards in the 77th minute.

Villarreal sealed the win through the hard work between two substitutes, Chukwueze and Ontiveros. The Nigerian received the ball from AndrĂ©-Frank Zambo Anguissa, crossed to the back post, with the Spaniard classily heading the ball into the back of the net two minutes from time in front of 16,195 excited supporters present at the Estadio de la CerĂ¡mica.
The second consecutive victory move the Yellow Submarine to fourth position with eight points as they will next travel to Camp Nou to face underperforming Champions, FC Barcelona on Tuesday.
