17 year old Nigerian teen wonder Victor Osimhen, has received congratulatory messages from German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg following his invitation to the Nigeria senior national team.

” He received a text message from the Sporting Director of Wolfsburg, they are happy for him, they can’t wait for him to join them in November” a source close to the player told Owngoalnigeria.com.

Osimhen’s invitation has set a new record in Nigeria national team football history, as he is now the first player to play for all arms of the Nigeria national team set up in one year.

His invitation to the Super Eagles completes a year of rapid progress for the Wolfsburg bound forward, who rose from the U-17 World Cup last year where he was top scorer to the Under-23s within a space of two months and played a role in Nigeria’s win at the U23s AFCON in Senegal.

He was also a part of the Under-20s that failed to secure qualification for next year Africa Youth Championship after a 3-4 loss to Sudan in Lagos.
