Josef Martinez is officially back, y’all. The Venezuelan Viper is captaining his side against rivals Orlando City tonight and has already scored the Goal of the Week a minute in. With the team’s first attack of the match, he peeled off to the top of the box and curled an inch-perfect strike off the post and in to give the Five Stripes a lead for the first time in what feels like months.

It’s Josef’s third goal since making his long-awaited return from ACL surgery and undoubtedly his best in a long time. We can only hope this is the start of things to come for the rest of the season as this team desperately needs their heart and soul in top form.
