A ruthless side to Miodrag Radulovic emerged Tuesday after the Cedars coach jilted mainstays Haitham Faour and Abbas Hasan from the squad for the upcoming World and Asian Cup qualifiers against Myanmar and Kuwait. They were not the only notable absentees, however, with forwards Mohammad Ghaddar and Fayez Chamsine also missing out for the Oct. 8 and Oct. 14 fixtures.There were recalls for Nejmeh's Hasan Mohammad and Norwegian-based midfielder Adana Haidar, while previously capped forward Phillipe Paoli, who plies his trade in Belgium with second-division side Lommel United, returns to the Cedars fold following a two-year absence.Lebanon's billowing contingent of German-born players was once again represented in Radulovic's squad, with Hilal al-Helwe of Wolfsburg's reserve outfit earning his first senior call-up.
