You remember Samuel Chukwueze, the prodigy who was recently named the ‘Young Male Player of The Year’ at the 2019 NFF Awards? Well, he has just been nominated for the ‘Player of the Week‘ award in Spanish top league, La Liga.
Chukwueze was nominated for the prize after his outstanding performance in Matchday 30 of the league. He was in top form on Wednesday, when Villarreal ended their clash with Barcelona on a 4-4 draw.
Barcelona was leading with two goals before the 19-year-old scored the first goal for his side in the 23rd minute. While they were pushing hard to finish off Villareal, he assisted the second goal for his side – bringing the scoreline to a draw.
Complete Sports reports that since his promotion to the club’s first team last year, Chukwueze has scored a total of four goals. So, you see why he stands shoulder to shoulder with more experienced La Liga players like Daniel Parejo, Pablo Sarabia and Mikel Oyarzabal on the nomination list.
