QUITO, April 28 (Reuters) - Controversial forward Ivan
Kaviedes was recalled by Ecuador on Wednesday for next month's
friendlies against World Cup-bound Mexico and South Korea.
Coach Sixto Vizuete, who quit when Ecuador failed to qualify
for the June finals in South Africa but is acting as caretaker,
picked 18 players to face Mexico on May 7 in New Jersey and the
Koreans on May 16 in Seoul.
Macara player Kaviedes, 32, who featured in the 2002 and
2006 World Cups but has had a career punctuated by disciplinary
problems, played little part in the 2010 qualifying campaign.
World Cup veterans Ivan Hurtado, 35, and Ulises De la Cruz,
36, were also included in a squad made up of home-based players.
Goalkeepers: Marcelo Elizaga (Emelec), Alexander Dominguez
Defenders: Ivan Hurtado (Deportivo Quito), Jefferson
Hurtado, Geovanny Nazareno (both Barcelona), Marcelo Fleitas
(Emelec), Miguel Ibarra (Universidad Catolica), Ulises De la
Cruz (LDU Quito)
Midfielders: Fernando Hidalgo, Luis Bolanos (both
Barcelona), Pedro Quinonez (Emelec), Giancarlo Ramos (Deportivo
Cuenca), Oswaldo Minda, Michael Arroyo (both Deportivo Quito),
Michael Quinonez (El Nacional)
Forwards: Ivan Kaviedes (Macara), Edison Preciado (El
Nacional), Joao Rojas (Emelec)
