Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has conceded that he feels physically drained following Togo's exit from the Africa Cup of Nations.
Adebayor could not stop his country suffering a quarter-final defeat to Burkino Faso in extra time last weekend.
The 29-year-old has insisted that he will make himself available for future Togo squads and help his country build a more secure infrastructure for the next generation if asked.
He told BBC Sport: "I'm still young, so whenever my country needs me I'll be up for it because I've started something and I have to finish it.
"We were stopped in the quarter-finals, maybe next time we'll be in the final and win it. So for me, it's never finished while I have the chance to win something. [The future] is looking good, with all the problems before coming to Afcon, and we've showed character, good face and showed we are a team that can play good football.
"I think I have done my best and physically I'm exhausted, but that's football. It's a tough one for all the players, for myself, for everyone, but life goes on."
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has a shortage of fit strikers and is likely to call upon Adebayor for this weekend's fixture against Newcastle United.
