Burundi have named Stoke City’s Saido Berahino in the squad for their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Gabon.
The striker who was temporarily suspended by Stoke last week following his arrest for drink-driving is set to feature for just the second time for Burundi.
The Swallows currently sit second in Group C on nine points, two behind Mali who have already qualified and need just a point to qualify for their first ever Africa Cup of Nations finals.
The match with Gabon is Burundi’s final qualifier for Egypt 2019 and will take place on 23 March in Bujumbura.
Berahino scored against Gabon in the away leg last September to give Burundi a 1-1 draw on his international debut.
