Adebayor turns down chance to return for Togo

Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor turned down the chance to come out of international retirement on Wednesday, saying he would not face Malawi despite being named in the squad for the 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier.

Adebayor quit international soccer last April, explaining he was haunted by events at the 2010 African Nations Cup in Angola where his team's bus was ambushed.

"I did not make promises that I am returning to the squad for the game in Malawi," the BBC quoted Adebayor as saying after he was named in a 22-man squad for Saturday's match.
 "If I was heading for the game in Malawi I would have long gone...I have just finished training with Real Madrid and I am not returning to the Togo squad for the game."

The Togo Football Federation (TFF) had hoped former captain Adebayor, on loan at Real Madrid from Manchester City, would join the national team for the game.
