Martins Scores Twice In Sounders Return

Martins Scores Twice In Sounders Return

By Johnny Edward:

Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins capped his return to action after almost three months with a bang when he scored twice as Seattle Sounders ended their six-game winless streak with a 4-0 mauling of Orlando City at the CenturyLink Field on Sunday night.

The forward suffered a serious injury in Seattle’s US Open Cup loss to the Portland Timbers in June and returned to the Seattle Sounders starting line-up for the first time in ten weeks.

He gave his side a deserved lead in the 17th minute.

He then sealed the win in the 62nd minute after debutant Nelson Haedo Valdez had doubled the advantage ten minutes earlier.

Martins has now scored nine goals in 13 MLS games this season.

Sounders’ next game is against Olimpia in the CONCACAF Champions League on Thursday.


  • Though I don’t know how strong the MLS is, but Obagoal is still one of Naija’s most profelic strikers abroad. The MLS may not be as gamorous as EPL, BUNDELIGA, SERIA A or LA LIGA but players
    in it still went to the world cut and competed very well.
