OBAGOAL: Obafemi Martins scores his first MLS goal. (Animated)

Obafemi Martins finally has first goal in the MLS, as Sounder, and of the 2013 season.

You may have been more excited to see Obafemi score a goal because you wanted to see him do his goal celebration flip in Rave Green. However, the buildup towards his goal was just as exciting as watching the "Obaflip". With his debut goal out of the way, Sounders supporters surely hope that this is the beginning of many more .

Yedlin makes an excellent move inside with his dribble which opens up the cross for Lamar Neagle. The layoff by Zakuani shows me the game has slowed down for him again. Obafemi shows that "poacher's sense" to be in the right place at the right time for the goal.
