Steve Zakuani was over the moon when he received his green card, allowing him to come off the international roster with Seattle Sounders.
The 22-year old Congo-born winger, who has opted to play for the DR Congo national team, said it was a relief to finally obtain his US residency without the need for a Visa.
‘Received my Green Card. Permanent Resident Status in this great country. No need for a Visa. Thanks to all who made it happen! And thank God,’ Zakuani posted on his Twitter page.
