The Super Eagles attacker did not make the matchday squad but he is being celebrated for his team’s victory at the PGE Arena Gdansk
Nigerians are celebrating Samuel Chukwueze’s success at Villarreal after they defeated Manchester United on penalties in the Uefa Europa League final on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old did not recover in time for the game and he watched on from the bench as Unai Emery’s men defeated the Red Devils 11-10 on penalties, after a 1-1 draw at the end of regular time.
Wednesday’s victory made Chukwueze the latest Nigerian player to win a silverware this season after Asisat Oshoala won the Uefa Women’s Champions League with Barcelona and Leicester City duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi clinched the FA Cup.
Congratulations @chukwueze_8 Your achievement is outstanding, and you stand head and shoulders above the rest. Keep on growing, keep on achieving. Incredible things in store for your future. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
