Liubinskas counts on Hearts contingent

Lithuania coach Algimantas Liubinskas has included six Heart of Midlothian FC players in his squad for the friendly with Mali and also recalled Andrius Velička.

Lithuania coach Algimantas Liubinskas has included six Heart of Midlothian FC players in his squad for the friendly international against Mali in Paris.

Velička recall
Liubinskas, whose side will use the match on 6 February as prepation for their UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier against France in Kaunas on 24 March, has recalled Hearts striker Andrius Velička. He won the last of his seven caps in May 2005 but has been rewarded for some impressive form that has brought nine goals during his loan spell with the Scottish Premier League side. Andrius Skerla, meanwhile, remains in the squad despite being without a club after leaving FC Tom Tomsk.

Midfielders: Saulius Mikoliunas (Heart of Midlothian FC), Deividas Cesnauskis (Heart of Midlothian FC), Mindaugas Kalonas (FHK Liepajas Metalurgs), Darius Miceika (FHK Liepajas Metalurgs), Linas Pilibaitis (FBK Kaunas), Vitalijus Kavaliauskas (FK Ekranas), Igoris Morinas (FK Žalgiris Vilnius).
