Chris Kamara Hilariously Claims Obafemi Martins Is Up Front For Southampton

Chris Kamara hilariously claimed Obafemi Martins was up front for Southampton this evening - instead of Saints' actual striker Michael Obafemi.

'Kammy' was covering Southampton's clash with Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening and told Gillette Soccer Special that 'Saints' were in control.

Unfortunately, he claimed that former Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins was up front at Selhurst Park rather than 19-year-old Obafemi.

The 62-year-old goes on to correct his mistake and claims 'I knew there was an Obafemi in there somewhere'.

Phil Thompson and other pundits can be heard in the background laughing at the slip-up.

Twitter also reacted to the gaffe which has become typical 'Kammy'.







Martins is best known for his stint at St. James' Park as well as a loan spell at Birmingham City.

The Nigerian carved his name into Birmingham history when he scored the winning goal against Arsenal in the 2011 League Cup Final.

He last played for Shanghai Shenhua in China and at the age of 35, he still wants to carry on playing.

Obafemi, meanwhile, has broken into the Southampton team over the last two seasons and is one for the future.

He scored against Chelsea earlier in the season and started tonight ahead of in-form Danny Ings.

Southampton currently lead Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park thanks to goals from Nathan Redmond and Stuart Armstrong.
