LAGOS AUGUST 22ND (NEWSRANGERS)-Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze has been named the Spanish League revelation player of the year by Villarreal.
The 20-year-old Nigerian youngster who opened his goal account for Villarreal this season in their 4-4 draw against Granada last weekend made his La Liga debut in the 2018-19 season.
And he scored five goals and assisted two others in 26 appearances for the Yellow Submarines all through the season.
Chukwueze was also on target for his Spanish League side once in the Europa League, while he found the back of the net twice in the Copa Del Rey.
Impressive for a youngster of his age, but he did not stop there as he went ahead to make his Africa Cup of Nations debut for Nigeria in Egypt this summer and became the youngest player to score in the tournament.
His goal and performance against South Africa earned him the man of the match at the end of the game, while he left the tournament with the bronze medal after all.
The youngster is well known for his ability to take on players from the flanks, while he torment defenders with his speedy movement.
