Atlanta United managed a 3-1 win over the Earthquakes, but Josef Martinez could not keep his record goal streak going. To watch MLS, sign up for ESPN+.

Atlanta United manager Frank de Boer says it's up to striker Josef Martinez whether he returns from a right leg injury on the final day of the regular season Sunday against the New England Revolution (stream live at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday on ESPN+).

"In Atlanta I felt like a kid playing video games," Martino told TUDN. "We put together a team from nothing and fortunately it all worked out. MLS is starting to be seen as a stepping stone to...

Atlanta United's Josef Martinez refuses to play for Venezuela coach

Atlanta United striker Josef Martinez said he will not play for Venezuela's national team as long as Rafael Dudamel is the coach.
