Laliga Hails Chukwueze’s  Impact In Villarreal’s Draw Vs Real Madrid

Organiser of Spain’s topflight Laliga has praised Samuel Chukwueze for his impressive performance, despite seeing less than 30 minutes of action in Villarreal’s 1-1 home draw against Real Madrid on Saturday, Completesports.com reports.

Chukwueze was introduced for Carlos Bacca in the 61st minute and paid Unai Emery’s faith in him by helping Villarreal back into the game.

He was brought down by Thibaut Courtois inside the penalty box which Gerard Moreno converted in the 76th minute.

Mariano Diaz had given Madrid the perfect start after he put the reigning Laliga champions ahead just two minutes into the game.

Despite seeing 29 minutes of action Chukwueze had 16 touches, 80 per cent pass success, one key pass, one shot, and one successful dribble.

And commenting on Chukwueze’s performance Laliga wrote on their verified Twitter handle:”The difference maker off the bench for Villarreal!”

Villarreal are now unbeaten in their last 10 games, recording seven wins and three draws.

The Yellow Submarines move to second on 19 points just a point behind leaders Sociedad in the league table.

    A young fearless player anyday… in this age where young players are often too scared of expressing themselves, Chukwueze is proving to be big and impactful in his business. I still remember how he took-on Sierra Leone defence to lay-up for Iheanacho in the return leg against SL… We have wingers and other forwards who could do the job and serve it on the table for finishing, but often times, this is where we have not been too clinical except for Victor osimhen who has been the only one, showing consistency and natural lethal striking ability. The unfortunate thing is that in the event of injury to a key forward like Osimhen… then our attack could become really toothless. Watching the game between Bournemouth vs Reading yesterday… I was just entertaining the idea of the possibility of the NFF pushing for Dominic Solanke again… he has not been involved for England since featuring in a friendly for England against Brazil in November 2017. He may just be a really solid forward who has not enjoyed befitting reckoning in the Senior English setup just because of abundant young talents coming through for England… the likes of Foden,Sancho, Greenwood, Rashford and even Abraham. In the run-up to World Cup 2022, if NFF can cleanup their house and turn a new leaf from the culture of owing players their allowances and other general negative aura surrounding their negative handling of the affairs specifically playsers’ welfare… we can really begin to convince some of these quality talents still out there for grabs. Solanke may be playing at Championship at the moment but the guy is still solid in the act of goalscoring… I have a strong feeling that, Eberechi Eze, Josh Onomah and Dominic Solanke could really bring something to the Super Eagles fold in their area of usefulness if we are able to convince them in the leadup to Qatar 2022… a very good showing at next Afcon in Cameroun, which I feel we should really be pushing to win again, could really turn the heads of the likes of Eze and Solanke to pitch their tent with us. Though England has far more tested and superior players to Eze and Solanke in their positions… but if we expose those guys to our philosophy,true-style and passion as chronicled by our great squads over the years and give these guys the encouragement, support and confidence they need… they could really come into their element and do a good job for Super Eagles and Nigerians… we must never stereotype these foreign borns but welcome those that are very good and ready at all time. We have had a history with identifying with our won once they have Nigeria blood flowing their veins from the days of Reuben Agboola to George Abbey and they have all helped us in their own little way… but there is something dangerous that I have seen with coaching and player management in the Super Eagles… at no time should we ever make any player feel untouchable… feel invaluable such that they begin to feel and get entitled to an aura of being too big to be started from the bench or not even called up at all… we should never entertain sentimental favouritism in players involvement in matches or callups… imagine, how a player like Dele Alli became very key to England senior squad but today even though he is still a key player and doing well for spurs… others who it appears are throwing more fireworks are now being called in his place… that is the attitude that our coaching and technical department should imbibe… give everyone doing well a fair chance and do not tie sentiments to what any one player did for in the past… Lastly, it’s a brand new day and must thank God for the gift of another day. I brooded over the incidents of the yesterday between I and Dr.Drey and wish to apologise to the whole CSN forum for my part in it. I also wish to personally apologise to @Dr.Drey for tellling him to “Shut-up” in reference to his assessment of Kelechi Nwakali and referring to his stance on Coach Rohr as “Whiteman asslicker”… those were needless and uncalled for… even if he has always attributed a the tag of “Liar” and “complete idiot” to me often on my hardline stance on Rohr being not good enough and at his wits end. However… we must continue to respect the views of every member of this forum and allow true camaraderie amonsgt ourselves here even if views differ… Happy Sunday to all and one love people!

     
  • This is commendable from JimmyBall. Even though we express our thoughts on this forum we must always respect other people’s views n not quench it. Thanks man.

     
  • This is simply inspiring write up from JimmyBall. I hope NFF would do the needful to intensify efforts  on Lookman, Ovie  Ejara and others in switching their aallegiances to our great country. I sincerely cherish the spirit of sportsmanship of JimmyBall towards Dr.Drey. We’re in one house
