Nigeria international Victor Osimhen netted in Wolfsburg’s 2-0 win over 10-man Dutch club FC Utrecht in a friendly game on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old striker scored his Bundesliga side’s opening goal in the 56th minute of the game after jumping the highest in the box to nod in a cross from the right flank.

Utrecht had been reduced by a man four minutes prior to the opener as Edson Braafheid was given the matching order.

Kaylen Hinds wrapped up the victory for The Wolves in the 70th minute.


Osimhen was later replaced in the 77th minute by Christoph Kramer.

The 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup Golden Boot winner has played just one competitive game for Wolfsburg – has a last-minute sub in a Bundesliga game – since joining on January 1 this year.

The Super Eagles striker, who clinched the CAF Youth Player of the Year in the 2015 CAF Awards, took to Instagram to show gratitude for scoring for the German club.

On Target 🙏🏽#gratefuleveryday
