Samuel Chukwueze was one of the best players on the pitch in the incredibly dramatic La Liga match between Villarreal and Barcelona on Tuesday; his best performance yet this season, and while it earned him deserved praise it was nightmarish for Barca defender Clément Lenglet.
Chukwueze ran rings round Lenglet and owned the Barcelona defence, largely, on the night he scored his seventh league goal.
10 – No Nigerian player in Europe’s top 5 leagues has now been involved in more goals in all club competitions than Samuel Chukwueze (seven goals, three assists). Sweet. https://t.co/SMpX5tyP0n

The 19 year-old attacker was menacing on the right wing, keeping both Jordi Alba and CB Lenglet busy, soo busy in fact the commentator chimed in.
In the heat of the moment during the one-sided duel between the Nigerian the commentator aimed a slight at the Frenchman.
With the scoreline at 4-2, the commented went off on a double edged sword attack :
‘If Lenglet retired from football he could become a contortionist. He has twisted 17 different ways trying to stop Chukwueze, but the 19 year-old has won the most of that duel.’
Eventually, the Nigerian youngster was subbed off in the 88th minute, and the game Barcelona fought back to draw 4-4 against the 10-men Villarreal.
