Early on in the Seattle Sounders home match against the San Jose Earthquakes, forward Obafemi Martins scored this brilliant, one-time goal from a very acute angle.
After running in behind the Quakes defense, Martins -- who was left off Nigeria's World Cup roster -- looped his shot up and over veteran goalkeeper Jon Busch, nestling the ball into the far side netting for what would eventually be the game-winner.
This is how Busch reacted to it all. And we can understand.
After the match, Busch said of the goal: “You tip your cap to him. That’s a big-time finish from that angle. The only place you expect him to put it is at the near post. That’s the only angle he’s got, and he finds the back post. There’s nothing you can do. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you play, that’s a good goal.”
