This Seattle Sounders youngster is certainly one to watch for the future.

MLS hot prospect Obafemi Martins has had some moments of pure magic for the Sounders this campaign.

The young whipper-snapper has one hand firmly grasping the coveted Rookie of the Year accolade after his stellar performance against the Colorado Rapids on Sunday.

Martins got on the end of an awkward, lofted ball from midfield and make a superb turn with his first touch to bamboozle two opposition defenders. He then applied a deft finish to cap off the wonderful piece of play.

The Sounders ran-out 3-1 winners away from home, with Martins’ golazo providing the coup de grace to seal the win.
