Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze was in action as AC Milan defeated Lazio 2-0 in Saturday’s Serie A game.
The Nigerian international, who has made six appearance, came on as a substitute for Christian Pulisic in the 82nd minute.
After a frustrating first 45 minutes where Lazio aimed to frustrate, Milan got their breakthrough just before the hour mark as Christian Pulisic powered in a cut-back from Rafael Leao to open the scoring.

The Rossoneri were in command of the game from that point, and they got their second in the closing stages when Leao again found a team-mate with a pull-back from the byline, this time Noah Okafor benefiting as he came off the bench and netted his second for the club.
Lazio rarely threatened, and the win – plus another vital clean sheet, moves Milan three points clear at the top while waiting for Inter to play Salernitana in the late kick-off.
