Samuel Chukwueze

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to celebrate Samuel Chukwueze following Villarreal’s first UEFA Europa League trophy secured on Wednesday.

The Yellow Submarines defeated Manchester United on penalties in the Europa League final at the PGE Arena Gdansk.

Chukwueze, 22, who was injured in the game against Arsenal did not recover in time and could only watch from the bench as Unai Emery’s men defeated the Red Devils 11-10 on penalties, after a 1-1 draw at the end of regular time.

The victory made Chukwueze the latest Nigerian player to win silverware this season after Asisat Oshoala won the Uefa Women’s Champions League with Barcelona and Leicester City duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi clinched the FA Cup.
