The control and flick over the head of Newcastle defender Paul Dummett caught the breath last week - but there again so do did some of the wide open spaces on Fulham’s left where the Belgian should have been.
On a better night, Ayoze Perez might have cashed in, but Matt Smith’s header proved the difference.
Want to see Odoi's moment again?
Slavisa Jokanovic is delighted with Odoi’s impact - but wants a bit of bread and butter to go with the jam.
“I am focused on him improving himself in some tactical ways and for him to be available for some defensive work,” the head coach warned.
“His position in the football game obligates him to concentrate hard and avoid some situations and he can do this.
“He is a quality player but he has to be able to improve himself. He played very good football, but I believe he can still play better.”
Joka revealed a combination of five Fulham scouts, an agent’s nudge, and his own opinion brought the little known Odoi to the Cottage.
He is better known now after his back became as good as any boot in controlling the ball.
“There have been many positive opinions from supporters who are excited about his first 90 minutes in competitive game,” Jokanovic added.
“They were very excited and very happy with the great dribbling and the little trick he made against Newcastle.”
