Martins Makes MLS Team Of The Week Again

Martins Makes MLS Team Of The Week Again

Nigeria international Obafemi Martins recorded his fifth brace of the season on Sunday against the Colorado Rapids, earning the Sounders FC striker his sixth appearance on the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week, leading all Seattle players.

The Super Eagles forward who was not invited for the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan this weekend has continued to prove his worth in the MLS, scoring almost every week.

Martins has a club-record 17 goals on the season and has scored two goals in four of his last eight matches.

He was joined on Team of the Week by goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth (New England Revolution); defenders Lovel Palmer (Chicago Fire), Bobby Burling (Chivas USA), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City) and Chris Tierney (New England Revolution); midfielders Mauro Rosales (Vancouver Whitecaps FC), Matias Laba (Vancouver Whitecaps FC), Rodney Wallace (Portland Timbers) and Dax McCarty (New York Red Bulls); and forward Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy).

    If he likes, let him score 100 goals. He still will not be good enough for our almighty Keshi. Big Boss is the only coach in the world who will overlook performing players like Uche, Martins, Lukman, Odewinge e.t.c simply because he does not like their names or face. He will rather bring in players sitting on the bench of an unknown club in an obscure league. God helps Nigeria

    I wish the Super Eagles good outing, results regarding the remaining matches so that they could qualify, and top the group, and even defend the cup. Please ensure you beat Sudan both home and away .Also Congo and south Africa at return matches.
