“We’ll see, I think he’s getting closer,”Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid told reporters.
“I think this is the week we’re hoping he can make it back, but we have to go day-by-day.”
Seattle Sounders have lost seven games during the period Martins has been on the sidelines, scoring a paltry two goals in those games.
