Naby Keita is back in the Guinea squad for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mali and Namibia later this month.

The Liverpool midfielder had missed the clashes with Comoros and Chile in October, despite appearing to be fit, but has been selected by coach Didier Six.

Keita, 24, has been in and out of training this season with various small niggles, and Liverpool had been keen not to expose him to international football last month.

Two names not in the squad despite their return to fitness are captain Ibrahima Traore and Atlanta United defender Florentin Pogba.

There are also three new faces, strikers Momo Yansané (FC Isloch Minsk, Belarus) and Morlaye Sylla (AC Horoya), and goalkeeper Sekouba Camara (AS Kaloum, Guinea).

Guinea squad:

Goalkeepers: Aly Keita (Ostersunds, Sweden), Moussa Camara (AC Horoya, Guinea), Sekouba Camara (AS Kaloum, Guinea).

Defenders: Ibrahima Sory Sankhon (Sint-Truiden, Belgium), Simon Falette (Eintracht Frankfurt, Germany), Julian Jeanvier (Brentford, England), Sekou Conde (Chateauroux, France), Pa Konate (GIF Sundsval, Sweden), Issiaga Sylla (Toulouse, France), Mickael Dyrestam (AO Xanthi, Greece).

Midfielders: Naby Keita (Liverpool, England), Ibrahima Conte (Beroe Stara Zagora, Bulgaria), Mady Camara (Olympiakos, Greece), Sadio Diallo (Gençlerbirligi, Turkey), Kamso Mara (Slovan Liberec, Czech Republic).

Strikers: Seydouba Soumah (Partizan Belgrade, Serbia), Mohamed Yattara (Auxerre, France), François Kamano (Bordeaux, France), Demba Camara (Apoel Tel-Aviv, Israel), José Kanté (Nastic Tarragona, Spain), Momo Yansané (FC Isloch Minsk, Belarus), Morlaye Sylla (AC Horoya)
