Seattle Sounders striker, Obafemi Martins, is doubtful for Wednesday’s US Open Cup clash against Portland Timbers due to hamstring injury.
Martins has not played since scoring a pair of goals as he was kicked out of the Sounders’ 3-2 win over the Chicago Fire on June 7.
Sounders head coach, Sigi Schmid, was far vaguer when asked to explain how serious the injury was.
Schmid said: “Now that is a bit more concerning.”
The gaffer however expects the Nigerian to be fit for Sunday’s regular-season rematch.
The 29-year-old is enjoying a MVP-calibre season with eight goals and six assists through the Sounders’ first 15 matches.
Martins is the only MLS player ranked in the Top 5 in both goals and assists.
The pant-sized striker was left out of the Super Eagles squad on the eve of Brazil 2014 World Cup.
