Super Eagles striker, Obafemi Martins has been issued an American Green Card. The Seattle Sounders ace has been listed as a home player by the team in recent games. The issuance now gives the team an opportunity to sign another international player to replace the striker as the league only allows each team a maximum of eight foreign players. The dual citizenship would not be a barrier to Martins’ eligibility to a call by Nigeria as the country supports dual nationality of its players.
