Scotland v Nigeria 2014

Postby Gabe » Sat Jun 03, 2017 8:07 am

As maybe you know I am on the RSSSF website where update the page of the Scotland international matches.
Scotland played Nigeria in 2014 and I am updating the data of that match.

My doubt is about the full name of the Nigerian player Odunlami Kunle.

Some football websites have : First name : Ebenezer Odunlami - Surname : Kunle
Some others have : First name : Ebenezer Kunle - Surname : Odunlami
Then : Surname : Kunle, but known as Odunlami.

As you can see football websites disagree about his full name. I am not able to find a reliable source to understand finally the correct way
to write it.

Can you can help me ?

Best Wishes

I had a look at some Nigerian sources that seem to favour Ebenezer Kunle Odunlami and then use Odunlami as the surname. The best I can do I am afraid.

Hi Gabe,

I just spent several minutes having a poke around on this issue.

I would trust the sites which are geared towards Nigerian interests and they favour Odunlami as the surname (as do most database type sites actually).

If it was me, I would go with Odunlami as the surname.
