Villarreal Says Samuel Chukwueze Cannot Play In Both AFCON And U20 World Cup by NaijaCelebrity: 9:43am On May 09
Samuel Chukwueze faces a dilemma after being offered the chance to play for Nigeria at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations and Under-20 World Cup.

However his Spanish La Liga side Villarreal have told the 19-year-old that he cannot play in both.

The Under-20 World Cup ends in Poland on 15 June with the Nations Cup in Egypt starting six days later.

"It is a little dilemma that we must try to fix and hopefully there will be a good solution," Rohr told BBC Sport.

"I understand when the club say it is impossible for him to play in the Afcon and youth World Cup.

"Chukwueze has good qualities and we already see why he plays at the top level in Spain."

The winger has scored in La Liga, Europa League and Spanish Cup this season despite only earning promotion to the first team from the reserves.

On the international scene he also made his senior debut for Nigeria against Uganda back in November.

Chukwueze played for his country at under-23 level in March and his stock continues to rise as he was named the Nigeria Football Federation's 2018 Young Player of the Year in April.

"He has an interesting ability which makes him a very important talent for any team he plays with," Rohr added.

"I saw this quality when he played with us and the Olympic team, we must support Chukwueze and our other players too."

An Under-17 World Cup winner with Nigeria in 2015, he has been likened to his hero and Bayern Munich's former Netherlands international winger Arjen Robben.

Chukwueze - who came close to joining Arsenal in 2016 - arrived at Villarreal from Nigeria's Diamond Academy in August 2017.

He joins a growing list of Nigeria's Under-17 World Cup winners who have progressed to the senior national side.

Others are Francis Uzoho, Musa Muhamed, Kelechi Iheanacho, Isaac Success, Victor Osimhen, Dele Alampasu, while brothers Chidiebere and Kelechi Nwakali have also played for the Super Eagles B side.

Let him go for the U-20. He is still young and has alot of years ahead of him. Besides, wingers are not so much a problem for the eagles at AFCON level.

I don't like Coach Aigbogun. That big-bellied guy is lazy and extremely corrupt. He has systematically phased out his deputy, Abdu Maikaba, who is more experienced and tactically better. He has also allowed unscrupulous agents free entry into his camp. That guy is a rogue.

football is a process, u don't jump it. if u rush the kid to Afcon, he will be overwhelmed and the fizzle out, let him go through the ranks and gain better experience.
kaka was at USA 94 squad, but didnt even make the sub's list for any match. but later became World best.
