  • Samuel Chukwueze scored his first UCL goal for AC Milan against Borussia Dortmund
  • The Nigerian international joined the Italian league side from Villarreal in the summer
  • The Super Eagles star was one of the best players in the first 45 minutes of the game

Super Eagles star, Samuel Chukwueze scored a sensational goal for AC Milan in their UEFA Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund at the San Siro Stadium.

The winger's goal cancelled out an early opener from Marco Reus after Olivier Giroud missed a penalty won by the Nigerian international.

Reus had scored from the penalty spot at the 10-minute mark after Davide Calabria brought down Jamie Bynoe-Gittens in the box.

Chukwueze - in his third UCL appearance since joining Milan in the summer window from Villarreal - levelled things up 27 minutes later with a sensational goal.

In a video shared on social media, the Nigerian winger dribbled past two Dortmund players to slot home a beautiful left-footed striker in the 37th minute.

Chukwueze was a menace throughout the match against the German giants and set up Yacine Adli for a goal that would have given Milan the lead, but the midfielder fumbled the chance.

All the positive attacks from AC Milan in the first half had come through the channels of the Nigerian star and many believed he was the best player on the field in the first 45 minutes of play.

However, the Italian side's hopes of claiming all three points and securing their place were dashed in the second half, with Bynoe-Gittens and Karim Adeyemi sealing the result for Dortmund.
