Hernan Dario Gomez has plumped for a mixture of experience and young blood in his squad, with four players potentially up to win their first cap.
Goalkeeper Pedro Oritz, defender Jackson Porozo and forward pair Leonardo Campana and Jhojan Julio are the quartet without senior international experience.

Betting & Match Odds
USMNT are the slight favourites at 6/5 to prevail with bet365, while a draw is available at 11/5. A win for Ecuador is priced at 12/5.
It’s pretty much been the perfect start for new USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter as he prepares to take charge of his third match in the top job.
Two wins from two, against last year’s World Cup contestants Panama and Costa Rica, has given him some momentum heading towards this year’s Gold Cup, where his side will look to defend the title they won in Santa Clara against Jamaica two years ago.
Before then however, Berhalter will look to keep the USMNT’s fine record under his brief stewardship intact as they welcome Ecuador to the Orlando City Stadium for an international friendly.
Los Amarillos haven’t mustered a win against their hosts in their last three games, last savouring victory almost a decade ago in 2011.
They travel to Florida however under the guidance of an familiar face who took them to arguably their greatest international triumph almost 17 years ago, in the shape of Hernan Dario Gomez.
The Colombian is a cult hero among fans after he took the nation to the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan during his first spell in charge.
Now, back in the hotseat after achieving the same feat with Panama at Russia last year, the 63-year-old will, much like his opposite number, will be looking to lay the groundwork for a successful charge at reaching Qatar 2022.
Berhalter has already shown that his no qualms about leaving out presumed stars from his squads, with no place for PSG hotshot Timothy Weah in his current group of players.
The teenager, who won eight caps for his nation in 2018, has been limited in terms of minutes for Celtic, with whom he is currently on loan, and as such has been axed for the time being, though he has instead been named in the USMNT under-23 setup.
There is only one uncapped face among the hosts, with goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez called up as a replacement for the injured Zack Steffen.
