Emmanuel Adebayor returns to Togo squad for Tunisia qualifying clash

Emmanuel Adebayor is back in the Togo squad.'

Emmanuel Adebayor has ended his international exile and joined the Togo squad for their African Nations Cup qualifier against Tunisia on Tuesday.

Adebayor, who last featured for Togo in June 2015, rejected a callup last month and said he wanted to focus on his club football with Crystal Palace.

But the 32-year-old, who has previously been critical of Togo's off-field setup, returned to the fold after talks earlier this week.

"Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together brings success," Adebayor posted on Facebook on Tuesday.

"Let's go get this win together boys! May God be with us today."

SEA, coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; and working together brings success. Lets go get this...

Adebayor joined Palace in January on a deal until the end of the season, ending four months without a club after his release by Tottenham in September.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker has scored only once since arriving at Selhurst Park, but will now be in contention for Tuesday's qualifier in Lome.

Adebayor said no to a Togo callup for the game against the same opponents last Friday -- which Togo lost 1-0 -- and explained: "I don't think this is the opportune moment."

He added: "I just signed for a new team in London, and I'm doing everything I can to be at 100 percent physically and mentally.

"I am practicing very hard with Crystal Palace... I do not wish to interrupt this training."
