Nigeria and Seattle Sounders striker, Obafemi Martins, has been named in the Major League Soccer Team of the Week again after another splendid performance for his club.
Martins, who scored twice in his team’s 3-1 victory over New York City FC on Sunday, was one of three Sounders players named to the MLS Team of the Week.
Martins has now scored a total of six goals in eight matches in the ongoing MLS league season.
Interestingly, it could be a double celebration for Martins who is up for his 10th career AT&T MLS Goal of the Week for his second goal in Sunday evening’s match against New York City FC.
