Samuel Chukwueze gave a man-of-the-match performance for his club side, Villarreal as he led his team to what was an unlikely 2-3 victory against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Nigerian winger cancelled out Real Madrid’s opener by skipping beautifully past keeper Thibaut Courtois and sending him in the wrong direction in the 39th minute.
He also had a hand in the second goal for Villarreal as Morales Jose netted an equalizer after Vinicius Jr had given the home side the lead again.
Chukwueze would have the last laugh and in a rather wonderful manner as he slam the ball beautifully into the top right corner of Courtois’ goal in the 80th minute.
The goal would be a goal-of-the-season contender as Thibaut Courtois stood no chance against the absolute rocket of a shot.
Chukwueze continued to torment the Real Madrid backline until he was substituted in the 91st minute to be replaced by Kiko as Villarreal held on for another 6 minutes of stoppage time.
