Striker score in Seattle Sounders MLS win

Obafemi Martins scored a wonder goal for his MLS club over the weekend while Edward Ofere made history with his Scottish club

Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins continues his hot streak in the MLS as he scored an incredible goal to help Seattle Sounders to a 3-1 victory over Colorado Rapids.

Martins split Rapids defenders Bobby Burling and Drew Moor with a swift move before scoring with a calm finish.

“I can’t really remember what I did, but Rose gave me a good ball. I was thinking to control the ball facing our goal, but I just decided to do something different. So I just turned with the ball and placed it. It was just one of those times where you score a really good goal,” Martin said of the goal which has been described as a top candidate for goal of the season.

“Whenever you play LA, it’s one of the toughest games. We had a lot of chances and we couldn’t score. But we just moved on to the next game…and [today] we got the three points.”

Another Nigerian striker, Edward Ofere was on song over the weekend as he scored for his club, Caledonian Thistle to knock Celtic out of Scottish Cup.
