Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze, scored the decisive goal to send Villareal into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League as the Spaniards eliminate Bayern Munich.

Bayern were downed in the first leg in Spain by Nigerian-born Dutch professional Dutch footballer, Arnaut Danjuma, but the Bavarians levelled up in the second leg.

Robert Lewandowski's 52nd-minute strike drew Bayern level after hitting the ground running from the beginning of the match at the Allianz Arena.

However, super-sub Chukwueze scored the decider in the 88th minute with his second touch and Unai Emery's side's only shot on target.

Villareal have now entered the semifinal of the Champions League for the second time in their club history after beating the German champions 2-1 on aggregate.
