Nigerian international and Villarreal of Spain youngster, Samuel Chukwueze continued to up his stock with the Yellow Submarines as he set up their only goal at home to Huesca, AOIFootball.com reports.
Despite rumours of a potential move away from the club, the 19-year-old continued to show a high level of professionalism as he was handed his 17th league start of the season.
Needing a win to boost their chances of survival, the Flying Eagles invitee was at the forefront for the host as he provided the game’s first goal when he dribbled past two Huesca players before his cut-back pass found Pablo Fornals who did justice by firing home for 1-0 on 30 minutes.
They were however pegged back 12 minutes from time when Ezequiel Avila made it 1-1 much to the frustration of the home fans who paid the price for wasteful finishing.
The point still leaves Villarreal in a good position to escape the drop as they now have 40 points from 35 games, five ahead of 18th placed Rayo Vallecano with three round of matches left in the division.
