Seattle Sounders' Zakuani delighted for new teammate Nkufo

Seattle Sounders forward Steve Zakuani is delighted for his new teammate Blaise Nkufo.

Nkufo, who signed with the Sounders earlier this year from Dutch club FC Twente, was a key member of the Switzerland team that caused a shock upset of World Cup favourites Spain on Wednesday and Zakuani was happy for his soon-to-be striker partner.

'Spain's passing was ridiculous at times but Switzerland defended unbelievably well! Happy to see my future teammate Blaise Nkufo get a win!,' he wrote on his Twitter page.

Nkufo will link up with the Sounders following his duties with the Swiss national team after the World Cup.
