Toko Ekambi, Santi Carzola and Samuel Chukwueze all picked up award

18 goals last season were enough to get Cameroon’s Karl Toko Brillant Ekambi Villarreal’s golden boot award.

Ekambi received the golden boot on Tuesday amongst 2 other winners of personal accolades: Nigeria’s Samuel Chukwueze, and the small Spaniard Santi Carzola.

The 27-year-old had a dream debut season for the ‘yellow sub marines’, coming from the French league where fans ran out of superlatives to describe his heroics with Angers SCO, scoring 17 goals in his last season in the French league 1 to pick the Marc Vivien Foe award.

The ‘wing wizard’ is yet to have a grip or impose himself as a starter in a strong Villarreal side, but, he would be looking to take his opportunities coming off the bench if not more this season. The 2017 AFCON winner played 21 second half minutes in the first game of the season in a 4-4 parity all tie with Granada.
