Jan 30 (Reuters) - Hanover 96 striker Mame Biram Diouf has been recalled after an 14-month absence to Senegal's squad for a friendly against Guinea on Feb. 5 in Paris, the country's football federation said.

Diouf, formerly at Manchester United, last played for his country in 2011.

New coach Alain Giresse has named a strong squad as he prepares for a World Cup qualifier against Angola on March 23. (Reporting by Mark Gleeson in Nelspruit; Editing by Ed Osmond; mark.gleeson@thomsonreuters.com +27828257807 Messaging mark.gleeson.thomsonreuters.com@reuters.net)
