Incredible Performance As Chukwueze Scores in Villarreal’s Victory in Europa Conference League Clash

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Spanish club Villarreal are through to the UEFA Conference League group stage after they overcame Hajduk Split on Thursday night.

The Nigerian international played against compatriot Chidozie Awaziem who featured for his Hajduk Split side in the playoff second-leg tie.

Both Super Eagles stars played 90 minutes of the encounter, but Chukwueze’s Villarreal claimed all precious points.

Chukwueze created two chances, made two key passes, completed four dribbles and scored the second goal for the Yellow Submarines.

Awaziem, on the other hand, will no longer feature in European football this season after Hajduk had conceded four goals in their first leg clash.

The Spanish outfit defeated Hajduk 4-2 in the first leg and was the clear favourite to go through, with Alfonso Pedraza opening the scoring in the first half of the second leg.
