Mulumbu Hawthorns bound

Baggies midfielder's African Cup of Nations dream over

YOUSSOUF Mulumbu is set to be reunited with his Albion team-mates at the end of the week after his African Cup of Nations dream finished in disappointment.

The Baggies midfielder played the full 90 minutes of DR Congo’s 1-1 draw with Mali last night but could not find a winner to take his team through to the quarter-finals.

The Leopards remained unbeaten after three straight draws but finished third in Group B a point behind Mali and four adrift of Ghana.

Mulumbu will now report back to The Hawthorns for Barclays Premier League duty ahead of Sunday’s home clash with Tottenham (ko 1.30pm).
