Ghana defender Isaac Vorsah has been named in FC Red Bull Salzburg’s 27-man for their winter break preparations in Qatar.
The centre-back sustained a serious knee injury in May last year which was estimated to keep him out of action for six months.
But the 25-year-old is behind schedule in his recovery.
Red Bull Salzburg say Vorsah will train separately and will not be involved in the friendly matches against Zenit St. Petersburg and Sudanese champions Al Al-Merrikh SC.
Vorsah is racing against time to regain full fitness for the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.
