'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Easy Goal says Martins

Birmingham's latest hero, Obafemi Martins admits that he is living the dream after scoring the winning goal in the Carling Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

His chance to go down in Blues folklore came in the 89th minute when pounced on a loose ball after a mix-up by Arsenal at the back and he didn`t need to be asked twice to put the ball into the net.

Martins only joined the club during the last transfer window on loan from Rubin Kazan until the end of the season, but he has now shown what he can do when the pressure is on and he will be looking for the deal to be turned into a memorable one.

He said: 'The fans are very happy that we've won, and winning a trophy is one of the best feelings in the world.

'I think it is not easy coming here when the team did a lot to get to the final.

'I have to give them the credit but I'm very happy to have my played my part in the final and to have scored because we played very well.

'I get told I will be a legend with fans. I don't know about that. I just want to play my football and be happy.'


Martins added: 'I have scored a lot of important goals but I'm glad to take a trophy with one of the easiest goals of my career.

'As a striker, you just need to hope something might happen.

'I have to be in there to see what is going to happen. A mistake is made and I scored!

'I know it is an easy goal but I have to take my time to score because there are a lot of fans watching and I don't want to let them down.'
