Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins continued his impressive run in the Major League Soccer (MLS) when he scored a goal and provided an assist on Saturday to help Seattle Sounders thrash hosts Vancouver Whitecaps 3-0.



Martins has now scored 13 goals in the MLS this season, just four goals shy of the club record he set last season.

Sounders are now fourth on the Western Conference league table with 32 points from 30 games.

‘Oba’, as he is called in the US, scored his team’s third goal in the 87th minute from a Clint Dempsey pass.

He had earlier assisted Andreas Ivanschitz for the opening goal in the 45th minute.

Nigerian-born Canada international Sam Adekugbe was an 89th minute substitute for Vancouver Whitecaps.
