This week in Sounders gifs: Oba scores wonder goal, ties opponent's shoe? (animated)

Obafemi Martins is good at scoring, you guys.

A solid performance from the Seattle Sounders FC as they defeat the San Jose Earthquakes 1-0 in front of a near 50,000 in attendance at CenturyLink Field. An 8th minute world class goal by Obafemi Martins was enough to help Seattle lock down their first shutout in eight matches. If not for SJ GK Jon Busch, the scoreline might well have been 5 or 6 to nothing. And to cap Oba's night - he assisted Atiba Harris by apparently tying his shoe.

If Obafemi Martin's goal is not the best of the week it is at least in the top 2. Here is the sped-up buildup and goal:
