Controversial Togolese footballer Emmanuel Adebayor has changed his mind again.

The striker, who has invariably been in the news for the wrong reasons both with Togo and various English Premier League clubs, has now decided he wants to play for his country again after a disappointing season with Crystal Palace where he has scored only one goal and has been called a flop by some English media.

He has now re-joined the Togolese national team and will be fit to face Tunisia on Tuesday night in an African Cup of Nations qualifier after a long absence.

Though Adebayor’s erratic form can frustrate fans, his return is sure to create excitement and perhaps galvanise his country to greater heights.

Adebayor has previously refused to play for the national team and said he wanted to focus with his club Crystal Palace but it seems that he’s changed his mind now.

Adebayor played for Togo at the 2006 World Cup, their only appearance at the tournament, but has made himself unavailable for selection on several occasions and criticised the “chaos” in the FTF.

He last played for Togo in June last year.
