Fans who attended S2’s match on Monday got an unexpected treat — beside the 88th minute winner over Portland Timbers 2: A chance to rub elbows with Obafemi Martins. Yes, THAT Obafemi Martins. The former Sounders forward was apparently attending the match with Tyrone Mears and Darwin Jones.
But before you start getting all excited about a potential return, it should be said that Martins is currently on an international break with Shanghai Shenhua. The Chinese Super League team doesn’t play again until Sept. 11.
After a slow start, Martins has been on absolute fire recently, with four goals in his past three CSL matches to give him eight goals in less than 800 CSL minutes.
