Denis Frimpong Odoi’s Fulham got promoted to the English Premier League on Tuesday at the Wembley Stadium.
Two goals from Joe Bryan in extra-time helped Fulham beat Brentford in the Championship play-off final to secure a return to the English Premier League.
The left-back caught Brentford’s goalkeeper David Raya off guard from 40 yards in the 105th minute of the game, with the Spaniard expecting a cross and then unable to scamper back and save Bryan’s skidding low effort.
With Brentford throwing players forward in search of an equaliser, Bryan surged forward and combined perfectly with Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic before poking the ball past Raya with three minutes remaining in the game.
Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back with a header from eight yards out in the fourth minute of added time, but it was not enough for Brentford to spring a comeback.
Denis Odoi played for 110 minutes before he was replaced by right-back Cyrus Christie.
The right-footed defender joined Fulham FC from Belgian outfit KSC Lokeren on a transfer fee of one million euros during the 2016 summer transfer window.
Some of the youth clubs he played for are Stade Leuven (1993-1998), RSC Anderlecht (1998-2004), KRC Genk (2004-2005) and Oud-Heverlee Leuven (2005-2006)
The 32-year-old right-back’s current market value is €1,600,000
Odoi made 39 appearances in all competitions for Fulham FC this season assisting once.
