Anyone who has watched Fulham’s under-21s over the past year knows just what a prodigious talent. The young winger has had a meteoric rise since being spotted shining for Margate and that starring for Steve Wigley’s side after a successful trial at Motspur Park. His explosive space and ability to do the unexpected have made him one of the most electric performers at PL2 level – witness his player of the month award after an excellent August – and even earned him a first-team debut on an otherwise dreadful night at Crawley in the League Cup last season.
Godo began the season in fantastic form – scoring six goals and adding two assists in five games as as Fulham’s under-21s made a superb start to life under their new coach Hayden Mullins – sealing a season-loan loan to Wigan Athletic, joining fellow former Fulham youngsters in Stevie Humphrys and Steven Sessegnon at the DW Stadium. The 20 year-old seized his chance when named in the Latics starting line-up against Cambridge United on Saturday.
He nearly provided a goal for Humphrys ten minutes before the break with some intelligent play on the right flank and then, five minutes after the striker had opened the scoring with his third goal of the season, Godo produced a moment of magic to lay on a crucial second for Shaun Maloney’s side. He surged into the box, mesmerising a couple of Cambridge defenders with some fancy footwork before teeing up Thelo Aasgaard, who cannoned a shot in off the underside of the crossbar.
The U’s did pull a goal back from the penalty spot through substitute Fejiri Okenabirhie but Wigan held firm to return to winning ways after the international break.
