The Super Eagles midfielder gave yet another brilliant performance for his side, but it was not enough
Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo scored his first goal for Southampton, but it was not enough, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Villarreal.
The Saints squared off against Villarreal in their fifth preseason game. Southampton were coming off an outstanding victory against Monaco, while Villarreal had been fantastic in preseason, winning their last four.
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl handed Aribo a starting shirt, but it did not start so well for the Saints.
