Samuel Chukwueze is excited to earn his first start for the team when AC Milan plays Inter Milan in the inaugural Derby della Madonnina of the season on Saturday.
Samuel Chukwueze will be anxious to bring his impressive play for the Super Eagles back to his club as he prepares for the challenging test against their city rivals in San Siro
Chukwueze scored one of the goals as the Eagles easily defeated Sao Tome and Principe 6-0 at Nest of Champions in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom state, Nigeria on Sunday to finish the 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifying round.
Chukwueze came off the bench to help the Eagles finish the qualifying season with 15 points, 22 goals scored, and 4 goals allowed.
Chukwueze will get the chance to play in his first Milan derby on Saturday, and he is likely to get the start as fellow teammate Christian Pulisic represents the USA in a friendly on Wednesday.
Before the first Derby della Madonnina of the season, both Milan and Inter have notched up three victories in a row, so something has to give when the two Calcio titans clash.
Inter is currently attempting to set a new record by winning five consecutive Milan derbies after taking all four of their previous encounters with Milan without allowing a goal.
