Montevideo - Luis Suarez has been included in Uruguay's 22-man squad for two international friendlies this month in Saudi Arabia and Oman.

It will be his first selection for Uruguay since biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.

Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez announced the team Thursday for matches at Saudi Arabia on Oct. 10 and at Oman three days later.

Although being allowed to play the friendlies, Suarez is still banned from Uruguay's next eight competitive matches. This means he will miss next year's Copa America and some World Cup qualifiers.

The ban also covers competitive matches until later this month for his club team Barcelona.
