Obafemi Martins is one of the most accomplished footballer out of Africa , A career that has seen him grace the top leagues in Europe,America and now Asia . “The weapon of mass destruction” as he is fondly called is arguably one of the finest goal merchant out of Nigeria. Blessed with searing pace, power and a devastatingly fierce left foot. This 33 year old front man is showing no sign of slowing down just yet .
Good Enough For Russia?
With 16 goals from 39 starts and clinching the Chinese FA for Shanghai Shenhua in China, this feat is more than enough credence to the fact he is one of the most in-from Nigerian player out there . Looking at the array of strikers at our disposal, aside Ighalo, Martins has the best goal scoring ratio .
Here is the thing, I am not saying he should be giving a starting role, but based on his form he deserves to get a chance to prove he merits at least a spot on the Eagles bench in Russia . If Olanrewaju Kayode who is yet to establish himself at Girona can get a look in . A fit and firing Martins should be considered too. Fair Enough????
