The AC Milan winger has not featured for the five-time world champions in 18 months and was overlooked for the World Cup in South Africa last summer.

But the 30-year-old, who is currently nursing a minor thigh injury, has shown improved form this season for Milan and has been rewarded by a call-up for the clash in Qatar.

New boss Mano Menezes has also recalled Santos youngster Neymar after dropping him for the October friendlies for disciplinary reasons.
