LuaLua set for DR Congo return
Lomana LuaLua
LuaLua missed DR Congo's last World Cup qualifier in March

DR Congo coach Claude LeRoy has said that Lomana LuaLua will return to action for the Simbas' key World Cup qualifier against Uganda next month.

The Portsmouth striker missed his nation's last World Cup qualifier, the 1-1 home draw at home to Ghana in March, after a dispute with the country's football association.

Leroy had discussions with LuaLua in England last week and said the 24-year-old had committed himself to returning to the team for the match against Uganda in Kinshasa on 5 June.

The Congolese are still in the running for a place at next year's World Cup finals, trailing Group Two leaders South Africa by three points.
