Sorry to be late with this, but the Sounders put out a note recently on Steve Zakuani's off-season plans. The most interesting sentence is the last one:
Steve Zakuani made his first international appearance last week, starting and playing the first hour of the Democratic Republic of Congo's 3-1 loss to Mali in a November 17 friendly outside Paris. Zakuani was involved in the sequence which resulted in Congo DR taking a 1-nil lead into halftime. After visiting his family in London, Zakuani will move on to Liverpool and train there with Everton FC.
