Paolo Di Canio and Stephane Sessegnon
Sunderland have appealed against the red card shown to Stephane Sessegnon in the Black Cats' defeat by Aston Villa.
The 28-year-old was sent off for a challenge on Yacouba Sylla in Monday's 6-1 hammering at Villa Park.
A three-game suspension would rule him out of the remainder of Sunderland's relegation battle - at home to Stoke and Southampton and away to Tottenham.
The Benin international's case will be heard by an independent regulatory commission on Wednesday.
Record four-time African Footballer of the Year Samuel Eto'o scored for Russian big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala at the weekend on his return from a knee injury.
However, the Cameroonian star could not prevent Dynamo Moscow fighting back to force a 3-3 draw and leave Anzhi third in the table, 10 points behind leaders CSKA Moscow with five rounds left.
Benin midfielder Stephane Sessegnon was on target for the second consecutive week, with his late first-half goal giving lowly Sunderland a 1-0 home victory over Everton.
Martins celebrates with teammates
Nigeria star Obafemi Martins was the hero for the Seattle Sounders as they won their first game of the US Major League Soccer season, beating Colorado Rapids 1:0 on the road on Saturday.
The veteran striker had been expected to start on the bench after only recovering from injury, but was handed a starting place after team-mate Eddie Johnson picked up a problem in training on Friday.
Profiting from a rebound of team-mate Shalrie Joseph's shot, the former Inter Milan poacher made room for himself with a touch before beating Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin, and celebrating his what was also his first goal for the club with his trademark backflip.
African stars had mixed luck in the FA Cup semi-finals at the weekend with Ivorian Arouna Kone helping Wigan triumph while a superb goal from Senegalese Demba Ba could not prevent Chelsea going out.
Kone burst clear of several defenders to create the first goal as Wigan took time off from an English Premier League relegation struggle to defeat second-tier Millwall 2-0 and earn a first FA Cup final appearance.
Ba scored with an acrobatic half-volley for Chelsea to halve a two-goal deficit against fellow giants Manchester City, but an equaliser eluded the title-holders at a packed Wembley stadium.
