Obagol nets another
Nigeria striker, Obafemi Martins scored his seventh goal of the season in Spain’s La Liga on Saturday.
Martins’ effort on 87 minutes proved inadequate for his club, Levante UD as they went down 2-3 to RCD Espanyol at Estadio Cornellá-El Prat.
The Nigerian’s consolation for Los Granotes was well-taken as he slotted home into the top right hand corner after getting a pass from Jose Javier Barkero and finishing the move with a left-footed shot.
The 28-year-old was impressive all night as he racked up four shots on target in the game.
It was the most of any Levante player in the game.
Martins, controversially left out of the Nigeria squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, has 37 caps for the national team.
He has scored 18 goals for the Super Eagles since making his debut in 2004.
