Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze provided an assist to help Villarreal reach the quarter-final of Copa del Rey courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night.
The 20-year-old winger came off the bench to make his 23rd appearance for the Yellow Submarine and made a key contribution in the encounter.
After a goalless first-half, Fernando Nino broke the deadlock in the 83rd minute and in their quest to secure a comfortable win, Javier Calleja brought on the Nigeria international for Javier Ontiveros.
