The Villarreal starlet, 20, was named Man of the Match in the Super Eagles' dramatic victory over South Africa after he scored and looked a constant threat to Bafana's defence. 
 
After scoring his debut international goal, a neat finish from inside the box, and making it through to the next stage of the tournament with his country, Chukwueze said he was thrilled with the win. 
 
"I'm delighted to have won with my team," he said, according to This Day Live. 
 
"It is great, most especially coming at my debut on the big stage for the national team. 
 
"It doesn't matter whether I scored or played well, most important thing is winning with the Super Eagles.
 
"We are looking forward to the next match, which I know will not be easy."
 
 
Nigeria will have to wait until Thursday evening to find out who they will play, between Ivory Coast and Algeria, in the semi-finals. 
 
Do you think Nigeria can go all the way in Egypt? Let us know in the comments section below.
