Wednesday 26, May 2021: The Nigerian Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze, will rival Manchester United Wednesday night for his first major club title, when they meet in Europa League finals.
Nigerians and Africa at large are looking up to the final, which will take place at Gdansk in Poland by 8:00pm, Nigerian time.
CEOAFRICA gathered that Nigerians are expecting a lot tonight from the Super Eagles star as a result of the achievements of his co-Super Eagles stars, the duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, who secured FA cup title with Leicester City against Chelsea football club.
The viral slogan by the Nigerians football lovers right now is "God that did it for Iheanacho and Ndidi, will do it for Chukwueze ".
Chukwueze handed Villareal a massive boost ahead of the Europa League Final when he returned to train last week after a short spell out due to injury.
The former U-17 world cup winner was stretched off the pitch in Villareal's semi final clash against Arsenal at the Emirates stadium early this month.
Villareal's Coach Unai Emery has confirmed that he could feature against Red Devils today.
CEOAFRICA reports that, StarTimes Nigeria PR Manager, Lazarus Ibeabuchi, has said that "football lovers in Nigeria can look forward to this exciting showpiece on StarTimes".
