Steve Zakuani's Brother Dedicates Man Of The Match Award To Him

Gabriel Zakuani, Steve Zakuani's brother, took home Man of the Match honors on Monday after Petersborough's 2-2 draw with Yeovil. Playing in his 100th match, Zakuani wore No. 11 wristbands in tribute to his brother, whose broken leg will likely sideline him for the rest of the year. Steve Zakuani went down hard after a reckless tackle during Friday's game against the Colorado Rapids, fracturing his tibia and fibula in the process. Since the injury, fans and players alike have shown support from far and wide as Zakuani endures a tough road to recovery.
