Martins, 28, saw off Fabian Espindola’s header to clinch the goal of the week award, earning 30.43% of the week’s vote for his one-time shot in Seattle Sounders’ 2-0 triumph over Real Salt Lake, while the New York Red Bull player received 30.19 percent of the vote for his goal in the 2-0 victory over Toronto FC.

The former Inter Milan strikers’ one-goal and one-assist contribution in the same tie for the MLS table-toppers also earned him the MLS Player of the Week.
