Samuel Chukwueze unable to rescue Villarreal from defeat at Anfield

The Super Eagles star was rewarded with a start following his heroics in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League against  FC Bayern Munich. 

Samuel Chukwueze was unable to help Villarreal from falling to 2-0 away defeat to Liverpool in Wednesday’s UCL Semifinal match.

The Super Eagles star was rewarded with a start following his heroics in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League against  FC Bayern Munich. 

He started upfront alongside Arnaut Danjuma at Anfield with the hope hurting Merseyside giants. 

FC Liverpool controlled bulk of the possession but had scares when the Yellow Submarines had opportunities to go on a counter-attack with the Diamond Academy product. 

Both teams went into the break level but Liverpool couldn’t keep calm when the second half began.

Henderson went down the right, fizzled in a cross that struck Estupinan on the toe and looped over the keeper to open scoring in the 55th minute.

Two minutes after the opener, Sadio Mane sets up Salah to put the game beyond doubts.

Chukwueze before being subbed off in the 71zt made spirited efforts to help his side take something home but wasn’t enough. 

In the encounter, the Nigerian was unable to shoot and had a 67% successful pass rate.

Chukwueze will hope to play a more prominent role when Villarreal slug it out with Liverpool in the return leg next week.
