No winter sunshine for Gabby

No winter sunshine for Gabby

The bad news for Gabriel Zakuani is his DR Congo national team failed to automatically qualify for the African Cup of Nations - but at least that means good news for Stoke as he should be playing in the Potteries this winter unless his team can squeeze in as one of the best losers.

Last weekend's 1-1 draw with Libya was not enough to claim the top spot in Group 10 as they were pipped to the post by Namibia who scored a late winner against Ethiopia to get through to the finals that will be held in Ghana from January 20th 2008.

Whether Mamady Sidibe will be in Ghana in January will be decided when Mali play Togo in October. A win for Mali would also mean automatic qualification.
