German Bundesliga By: Ayodeji Tunde | 13/05/2017


The long wait to taste action in the German Bundesliga has finally ended for Nigeria youngster Victor Osimhen.

He finally made his long-awaited debut for Wolfsburg in the German Bundesliga at home against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

The gangling striker was a 59th-minute replacement for Paul-Georges Ntep.

He was booked in the 89th minute for a foul.

Last week, he was an unused sub in his team’s 2-0 road win at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Saturday's development is a big step in the right direction for the young Nigerian who dazzled all at the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile where he scored 10 goals, a record by any player ever in the competition.

Coach Andries Jonker’s side will hope to preserve their top-flight status at the end the season.
