Kenwyne Jones has been called up for international duty just two months after Roy Keane fell out with Fifa vice-president Jack Warner.
Sunderland boss Keane became involved in a war of words with Warner, who is a special advisor to the Trinidad and Tobago football federation, over Dwight Yorke's withdrawal from a squad in September.
Jones has now been selected for a World Cup qualifier against Cuba next week, apparently at his own request, despite missing Sunderland's clash with Portsmouth on Saturday due to a knee injury.
The striker picked up a serious knee problem during Trinidad and Tobago's friendly against England in June but Warner has insisted that he will be looked after.
Warner told the TTFF's official website: "We are happy to have him back in the team.
"At first he was not called into the squad because of the fact that he is only now coming back from injury and we all know how difficult it can be for a player to get back to his accustomed place in the starting team for a club.
"We felt that it would serve him well to allow him that time.
"But when he indicated that he wanted to make a return for the Cuba game, we thought about it with manager Francis Maturana and we went ahead with the invitation.
"It will give him a chance to fit back into the team before the critical matches we should have coming up next year, once of course we seal our spot with a positive result against Cuba."
Keane was angry with Warner earlier this season for not apologising for Jones' injury, while he also branded the official 'a clown' over the Yorke affair.
Warner had stated in a leaked letter that Keane had a 'callous disregard' for Trinidad and Tobago.
