Super Eagles and Villarreal winger, Samuel Chukwueze as well as his compatriot Tom Dele-Bashiru, have been shut out of the 2019 Golden Boy Award for the best Under-21 player in Europe as organisers on Tuesday reduced the number of entries from 40 to 20.

The 20-year-old Villarreal forward who was on the original shortlist of 40 along with Flying Eagles midfielder Dele-Bashiru, will have to do more to reach that height in the future.
