Tottenham striker Mido has been recalled to the Egypt squad for this month’s World Cup qualifier against Libya.

“They have sent me the fax for the national game against Libya,” Mido told reporters on Friday.

Mido was dropped by Egypt’s former coach Marco Tardelli in September after saying he had a groin injury, then playing for his former club Roma within 24 hours of a World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.

Mido joined Spurs on an 18-month loan deal in January.
