There is no doubt that Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze have rediscovered his imperious form at his club, Villarreal as he continued his goal-scoring prowess on Saturday in the La Liga.
The former Diamond Academy player scored once again as Villarreal defeated Real Sociedad 3-1 away in a La Liga match Saturday night.
Chukwueze has now scored in three consecutive matches for the Yellow Submarines as he was among the goalscorers when Villarreal hammered lower division side Sanluqueno 7-0 in the second round of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night.
He came off the bench for Yeremi Pino just after the hour-mark and he completed the win for the visitors with his 96th-minute effort, thanks to Gerard Moreno’s assist.
Moreno had cancelled out Alexander Isak’s opener for Real Sociedad and he turned the game around for Villarreal with his second goal in the 68th minute.
Chukwueze’s effort at the Reale Arena was his second goal in the Spanish top-flight in this campaign and his fourth across all competitions.
The 22-year-old who returned from a five-month injury layoff in October, has made 10 league appearances for Unai Emery’s side which includes nine starts this season.
His goalscoring form sends a positive signal to the Super Eagles’ camp and it boosts their attacking line-up ahead of Afcon 2021 in Cameroon which will kick off in January.
Chukwueze has not played for Nigeria since March and his last outings were during the AFCON qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho earlier this year.
