Samuel Chukwueze creates a new record for Villarreal

Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze has created a new record for Villarreal as the youngest ever player to reach a landmark of 100 appearances for the Spanish club.

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.
