Oba Oba wins African award Saturday 1 May, 2004

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inter fan favourite Obafemi Martins has been honoured as African Young Player of the Year.

The pacey Nigerian striker is still only 19 years of age, but has already pushed his way into the first team places at the San Siro.

Often leaving Christian Vieri on the bench, Martins has gone from strength to strength since making an explosive debut in late 2002 and earned the nickname Oba Oba.

Martins was one of several African stars honoured at the ceremony in Yaoundé, as Real Mallorca forward Samuel Eto’o was named Footballer of the Year.

Footballer of the Year: Samuel Eto'o (Real Mallorca, Spain and Cameroon)

Young Player of the Year: Obafemi Martins (Inter, Italy and Nigeria)

Coach of the Year: Kadiri Ikhana (Enyimba, Nigeria)

Club of the Year: Enyimba (Nigeria)

Team of the Year: Cameroon

Best African Champions' League player: Dramane Traore (Ismaili, Egypt)

Goalkeeper of the Year: Idriss Carlos Kameni (Le Havre, France and Cameroon)

Obagol bagged a brace this afternoon and helped Nigeria to a 2-0 home win against Rwanda in the Germany World Cup Qualifiers. This is only Oba's 2nd international cap but he has managed to score 3 goals so far !! :eek:

Way to go Martins. :star: :strong: :star:

I really hope Martins becomes our future too!

Next season will be very important in shaping his future, Especially if Bobo leaves. With Bobo gone, it will be up to Adriano and Martins to shine and lead our strikeforce! I think Adriano+Martins will be a deadly duo. Although they need a little bit of Recoba or world class playmaker to assist them. :rolleyes:

He scored against Ireland so is that 4 in 3 games now?
Martins played 2 international games. A Friendly in London against Ireland, and he scored a goal on his debut for the Super Eagles. And then this game today in the WCQ. So he played 2 matches and scored 3 goals.

Not bad at all :D
