Obafemi Martins (born October 28, 1984 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian international football player who is a striker for Internazionale, wearing the number 30 jersey. Regarded by many as one of Inter's finest recruitments in years, Martins has established himself in one of the world's elite strikeforces, along with his teammate, Brazilian Adriano.

Martins is well known for his surging runs, using his blistering speed and pace to run past defenders like they are standing still. He used to run 100 meters in less than 11 seconds.

In December 2005, he signed a long-term contract with Inter Milan worth about 2.5 million euros annually.

In 2006, Martins continued his great form for Inter, before heading out to play for Nigeria in the African Nations Cup, where Nigeria finished 3rd, losing to Ivory Coast 1-0 in the Semi finals. Martins' brillant performances in the African Nations Cup confirmed his status as arguably the best young striker around.
