Fans gave their observations after the player’s club, Villarreal CF anointed him alongside six others for glory ahead of the international break.
Though, the likes of Raul Albiol, Santi Cazorla, Pau Torres and Gerard Moreno were also listed as stars to watch on the club’s twitter handle, Chukwueze’s image was picked as the star to watch during the international break.
