Mozambique are back to full strength for the start of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers after resting some of their foreign based stars for their friendly in Kenya last month with French-based defender Mexer and the Sporting Lisbon player Geny Caetano back.


New coach Luís Gonçalves has picked a 23-man squad to start the group F campaign at home to Rwanda on Thursday, before they then travel to play the Cape Verde Islands on Monday.


Gonçalves also restored third choice goalkeeper Victor (Costa do Sol), and home-based striker Maninho to the squad.


But out go the German-born David Malembana and former teenage prodigy Kamo-Kamo, now at Vitória Setúbal in Portugal.


Mozambique squad:


Goalkeepers: Frenque (Ferroviário Maputo), Guirrugo (União Songo), Victor (Costa do Sol)


Defenders: Chico (Ferroviario Maputo), Edmilson (Cape Town City, South Africa), Infren (União Songo), Mexer (Girdonins Bordeaux, France), Reinildo (Lille, France), Sidique (Desportivo Maputo), Zainadine Junior (Marítimo, Portugal)


Midfielders: Geny Caetano (Sporting Lisbon, Portugal), Dominguez (Bidvest Wits, South Africa), Kambala (Baroka FC, South Africa), Kito (Ferroviário Maputo), Nené (Costa do Sol), Telinho (União Songo)


Strikers: Amancio (Vitoria Setubal, Portugal), Clesio (Gabala FK, Azerbaijan), Luis Miquissone (União Songo), Maninho (Ferroviario Beira), Stanley Ratifo (Pforzheim, Germany), Reginaldo (Shakhter Karagandy, Kazakhstan), Witi (Nacional, Portugal).
