The European football governing body, UEFA, has named Nigerian International footballer and Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze among the 50 promising talents in Europe
The list which was shared according to a report on the UEFA website was compiled by a team of selected reporters across Europe.
This reads a report about the 20year old
“Precocious winger with UEFA Europa League experience; the Nigeria Football Federation’s young player of the year for 2017/18.”
Last Season, Chukwueze had broken into Villarreal’s first team after a string of impressive performances for the reserve side.
Also, the former Nigeria youth international has scored five goals in 26 LaLiga appearances for the Yellow Submarines.
The young promising talent turned down the chance to represent Nigeria at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland but instead opted to feature for the senior side at the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt.
The 20-year-old scored one goal for the Super Eagles in their bronze medal win in the competition.
