Obafemi Martins (and Lamar Neagle) nominated for Goal of the Week

Obafemi Martins scored a ridiculous goal a couple weeks ago and somehow didn't win Goal of the Week. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that. Well, Martins topped that goal with his stunner against the Colorado Rapids. Hyperbole aside, it features the best first touch you'll seen anywhere in the world this week and maybe for a long longer.

Here it is in gif form because you need to have this saved somewhere on a permanent loop:

hero oba - ssfc vs rapids 04-19-15

Oh my god, it is so good.

ANYWAY, it's nominated for Goal of the Week because OF FREAKING COURSE IT IS. Lamar Neagle's goal, which is also pretty nice, was nominated as well. But don't let that distract you. This should probably be goal of the year. We need to make this happen.
