Obafemi Martins scores first goal for The Seattle Sounders

Obafemi Martins or better yet, Obagoal scored his first goal for Seattle Sounders giving them their first win of the season.
The Sounders won their first league game of the season against the Colorado Rapids 1-0 in Commerce City, Colo. on Saturday courtesy of Obafemi's  goal which also happened to be his first MLS goal.

The Nigeria international passed a late fitness test, started the game and fired the match winner in the 27th minute to silence the Colorado Rapids fans.
The former Levante of Spain striker scored from a rebound after Colorado goalkeeper Clint Irwin saved a shot from Shalrie Joseph. 

In celebration, Martins performed one of his signature backflips.  
My guess: The Seattle Sounders will have to get used to winning and backflips this season.
