Obafemi Martins scores twice in Sounders pre-season win

The Nigeria international has regained his scoring form after finding the back of the net twice for his MLS club in an exhibition match

Super Eagles forward Obafemi Martins only required two minutes to rediscover the missing scoring touch in Seattle Sounders' pre-season friendly 2-1 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes in mid-week.

Two first-half goals by rejuenated attacking potential Martins provided the important confidence booster for the MLS side at the Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona.

Seattle started several of its newcomers from a wild off-season against the Earthquakes, including goalkeeper Stefan Frei, defender Chad Marshall and forward Kenny Cooper.

Frei was the only Sounder to play the whole game, as field players played only 45 minutes.

Obagoal as fondly called by fans and friends opened the goal account for Seattle Sounders in the 27th and doubled in the 29th minute with each set up within six yards of the net by midfielders Lamar Neagle and Andy Rose, respectively.

Former Sounders forward Mike Fucito scored the lone goal for San Jose in the 86th minute.
