Victor Osimhen’s debut for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga was drama filled.
Wolfsburg hosted Borussia Monchengladbach, with Osimhen starting off the bench in the 59th minute.
Barely 20 minutes into the game, the referee stopped play after a storm of hailstones rained on the Volkswagen Arena. Play was delayed for 25 minutes with the scores tied at 1-1.
After an approximately 25-minute wait, the teams are back out and after a short warm-up play should resume shortly. #WOBBMG

Meanwhile, his numbers on Saturday were a bit impressive: Three take on, one interception, a block and a successful aerial duel per squawka match stats.
However, he still managed to find his way into Referee Christian Dingert’s book for a foul on the 89th minute; his lowest point in the contest.
The brief game time would have come as a breath of fresh air for the Striker and hopefully, he may get more time under his belt in the last game of the season away to Relegation playoff candidate, Hamburger SV.
