Samuel Chukwueze made his first appearance in five months as Villarreal were defeated 2-1 by Osasuna in Laliga today. Ezequiel Avila was the match hero for the visitors as he scored from a header in the 87th minute to secure the narrow win for his side.
Chukwueze was introduced in the second half and received a warm reception from the home fans. Chukwueze was composed on the ball and did not look rusty. He also created one big chance in the game but was unable to save his team from defeat.
I must say I was very impressed with him, given that he looked bright in his first appearance in five months. The 24-year-old will be a key player for Villarreal this season and it will take some time before he gets back to his best.
Chukwueze's return will also be a boost for the Super Eagles and we hope he stays injury free this season.
