Obafemi Martins offers to help "struggling" Super Eagles

With Super Eagles strikers struggling to find their range in front of goal for Nigeria in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying race, Seattle Sounders striker Obafemi Martins has said he hopes his form in Major League Soccer (MLS) will earn him a Nigeria recall.

Martins again struck in Sounders?s 3-2 home victory over Real Salt Lake on Friday night for his 13th goal of the season, and also boasts an impressive nine assists.


The 29-year-old wants to help the club to the MLS title and is hopeful a successful campaign can earn him a Super

Eagles recall.
?I said at the start of the season if I was doing well for Seattle and scoring goals, I?d have a chance with Nigeria,? he told BBC Sport.

?But firstly, I want to play regularly here and try to help Seattle Sounders win a trophy.

?It?s the coach?s decision to invite players but if I can get a recall to the national team, I?ll be honoured. I just need to continue my form here in the United States, give my all to this club and let other things happen naturally.

?I love my country and I always want Nigeria to do well with me in the squad or not.
?If I get another chance, great, and if not, I can only wish my country all the best.?
