Samuel Chukwueze played the entire duration in Villarreal’s 2-1 away win over Alaves on Saturday.
It was the 8th league game Chukwueze had completed in his 20 appearances for the Yellow Submarines.
So far this season the Nigerian has scored three goals and an assist, none of which he managed to improve on the night.
Villarreal took the lead at the Estadio de Mendizorroza after 10 minutes through Colombian Carlos Bacca.
The hosts pulled level in the 80th after Lucas Perez put Joselu through.
And just when it looked like the sides will share the spoils, Fernando Nino struck in the 89th for the winner.
Victory over Alaves moved Javier Calleja’s men to 7th position on the log, and just three points off a Europa League spot.
