MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: MLS Goals of the Week] San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch said, "You tip your cap to him," after Seattle's Obafemi Martins managed to loop the ball from near the endline to just inside the far post for the Sounders' gamewinner on Saturday -- a leading candidate for Week 11 AT&T MLS Goal of the Week

Also in the running, Federico Higuan, Vincent Nogueira, Jermain Defoe and Chris Tierney.

“That’s a big-time finish from that angle," Busch said. “The only place you expect him to put it is at the near post. That’s the only angle he’s got, and he finds the back post. There’s nothing you can do. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you play, that’s a good goal.”
