The talented youngster was in action during Villarreal’s second Copa Del Rey match against Zamora CF on Tuesday evening.
It was his fine assist to Columbian striker Carlos Bacca that led to the opening goal in the 31st minute of the game that ended 4-1 in favour of the Yellow Submarines.
That game officially made Samuel Chukwueze the first player to hit 100 appearances for the club at 21 years 7 months and 11 days and also eclipsing the record set by Mateo Musacchio who reached the centenary mark aged 21 years, 11 months and 20 days.
“A record-making centenarian. Samuel Chukwueze has reached 100 games with Villarreal’s first team after starting the Copa del Rey game against Zamora CF,” wrote the LaLiga side in a statement.
“The Nigerian forward has reached the 100-game mark (79 in LaLiga, 13 in the Europa League and eight in the Copa del Rey), aged just 21 years, seven months and 11 days, becoming the youngest player to reach this mark in official games for the Villarreal CF first team.”
