Ex-Inter striker Martins back fit and firing for Seattle Sounders

Seattle Sounders striker Obafemi Martins feels he is almost at full fitness after almost a month on the sidelines.

The Nigerian managed to get through 90 minutes of the weekend's 2-1 win over Chicago Fire, his first appearance since injuring his ankle on August 10, and now feels like he is ready for regular game time.

"I wasn't expecting to play 90 minutes at all because I wasn't playing that good," Martins told reporters after the game.

"But I'm all good now. I have to start doing well and do everything that they say."

He added: "It was very difficult for me because I didn't train for three weeks. I just want to play on the team as usual and I'm glad that we won today."

Seattle have won four matches on the trot to sit second on the Western Conference table a month-and-a-half out from playoffs.
