WATCH: All 28 of Josef Martinez’s MLS record-setting goals

Atlanta United striker Josef Martinez set the MLS single-season record with his 28th goal of the season in a 2-1 win over Orlando Friday night

After scoring in his ninth consecutive game, which tied another MLS record, Martinez is averaging slightly more than a goal per game. With eight games remaining, starting Sept. 2 at D.C. United, Martinez could push the single-season mark to the mid or upper 30s
