NPFL22: Valentine Odoh Wins CKDMedia Most Lethal Striker Award

July, 18 2022.

The die was cast, the race was on. Who was going to bang in the goals, not just sporadically but with aplomb, finesse and efficiency? Valentine Odoh of Abia Warriors is the name that tops the chart.

Being the most lethal striker is beyond the number of goals scored, instead the awards dives into Conversion Rate, Goals Per Game, Goals Per Minute and overall efficiency.

Abuja-based Valentine Odoh was discovered during a screening exercise and was given a chance in the NPFL by Imama Amapakabo and he didn't disappoint. In what was his first season in the NPFL, he banged a whooping 15 goals for Abia Warriors in 24 games, with all goals coming in open play, except one. He added two assists to this figure.

Overall, the efficiency and goals contributions of Odoh was massive towards saving Abia Warriors from the drop. The Imama Amapakabo tutored team finished with 50 points out of 38 games to get a 13th placed finish.

Valentine is already attracting clubs from within and outside Nigeria, CKDMedia will be monitoring where his future lies next season.
