"MATHEMATICAL" is clearly head-and-shoulders above all his contemporaries,maybe, aside from Adokiye Amasiemeka, who became Rivers State Attorney-General. An Engineer by profession, Chief Odegbami has become an authority in Sports Journalism, owned one of the richest football video shops back in the day in Yaba, and is a current promoter of Youth Soccer especially his involvement in Secondary school soccer rejuvenation via the Shell Cup which produced a great number of our current all-conquering Eaglets. Many forget that he is perhaps Nigeria's greatest ever footballer (barring JayJay Okocha), and is still very relevant in Sports Administration.I'm currently in the US, and would have even gate-crashed the event to pay homage. I'll surely get the book. I encourage LIBers to read his column in "Complete Sports Nigeria" online to appreciate the depth of his literature on Nigerian football and football generally.No. 7, I THROWAY SALUTE!
