Belgian-born of Ghanaian descent Denis Frimpong Odoi has earned English Premier League promotion with Fulham FC.
Fulham beat Brentford in the Championship play-off final to secure an immediate return to the Premier League thanks to two goals from Joe Bryan in extra-time.
The left-back caught Bees 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 the Bees pouring forward in search of an equaliser, Bryan burst forward and combined with Aleksandar Mitrovic before stabbing past Raya to make the game safe with three minutes remaining.
Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back with a header from eight yards out in the fourth minute of added time, but it was too late for the Bees to spark a comeback.
The goals from Bryan were two rare moments of quality and quick-thinking in an otherwise cagey encounter between the two west London rivals, which finished goalless after 90 minutes.
Odoi enjoyed 110 minutes of the match before he was replaced by Cyrus Christie.
He joined Fulham FC from Belgian club Lokeren on a transfer fee of one million euros during the 2016 summer transfer window.
The 32-year-old right-back has few months left on his contract with the London based club.
Odoi made 39 appearaces for Fulham FC this season.
He was born to a Ghanaian father and a Belgium mother.
