BAMAKO - Barcelona midfielder
Seydou Keita is poised to return to the Mali national team
for the first time in 20 months after being named in the squad
for Saturday's African Nations Cup qualifier against Cape Verde
Keita, who has spoken of his frustration at the national
set-up and a desire to concentrate on his club career, has
turned down repeated call-ups since he won the last of his 62
caps in January 2010 at the Nations Cup finals in Angola.
Coach Alain Giresse named Keita in his 24-man squad for
Saturday's game in Bamako.
Mali will go top of qualifying Group
A if they win, leaving them well placed ahead of October's final
round of matches.
