Mali name list for Botswana faceoff

PSG midfielder Momo Sissoko returns to the Eagles after two years of absence and will be participating against the Zebras in the return leg of the 2013 Afcon qualifying

Mali coach Patrice Carteron has unveiled a 20-man squad to face Botswana in the return leg of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations final round qualifying.

Former Liverpool defensive midfielder Momo Sissoko, who now plays for Paris Saint Germain, figures on the list. The 27-year-old has not played for Mali since two years and has always turned down previous invitations to camp.

Carteron maintained the group that thrashed the Zebras 3-0 in the first leg played in Bamako on September 8, to be led by Seydou Keita.

The return leg will hold in Gaborone on October 13.
