Emmanuel Adebayor has been recalled by Togo to play for the national team for the first time in 18 months as they get their African Nations Cup qualifying campaign under way next week.

The 30-year-old Tottenham striker had refused call-ups for last year’s World Cup qualifiers in the wake of a public spat with coach Didier Six after the 2013 African Nations Cup finals in South Africa.

Togo play Guinea in Group E on Friday, before facing Ghana and Uganda Cranes.

Togo Squad:

Goalkeepers: Kossi Agassa (Reims/FRA), Cedric Mensah (Colmar/FRA), Mawugbe Atsu (Maranatha/TOG)

Defenders: Sadate Ouro Akoriko (Amazulu/RSA), Mamah Gafar (Dacia FC/MDA), Serge Akakpo (Hoverla FC/UKR), Vincent Bossou (Hung Vuong An Giang FC /VIE), Mathias Emmanuel (Zesco United/ZAM), Kokou Donou (Maranatha/TOG)

Midfielders: Komlan Améwou (Al Shaab/UAE), Alaixys Romao (Marseille/FRA), Dove Wome (Super Sport/RSA), Kossi Prince Segbefia (Zarya Luhansk/UKR), Floyd Ayite (Bastia/FRA), Arouna Farid Zato (KR Reykjavik/ISL), Mathieu Dossevi (Olympiakos/GRE), Nenie Innoncent Akpovo (Semassi/TOG), Lalawele Atakora (AIK/SWE)

Forwards: Emmanuel Adebayor (Tottenham/ENG), Jonathan Ayite (Alanyasport/TUR), Serge Gakpe (Nantes/FRA), Kamaldine Abraw (Free State Stars/RSA), Kokou Fodo Laba (Anges FC/TOG).
