Wow. Just wow. Like wow. It took a few times of watching before I could really process Obafemi Martins goal. Just absolutely sublime finish from the Nigerian and a big "did you see that?!" to his national team manager Stephen Keshi for not calling him into the World Cup squad. Oh well, their loss is our gain.
This might as well be a Social Timeline of Obafemi Martins posts but stick with me here. Three points is three points, right?
Little precursor to this one. Pretty telling really.

the dream of going to the World Cup is over, but still alive the dream of winning the 2014 MLS Cup with sounders— Osvaldo Alonso (@OzzieAlonso) May 17, 2014
