Venezuela:Despite a 2-0 loss to Argentina last month, Venezuela will return many of the same players for World Cup qualifiers against Colombia and Bolivia later this month.
The Venezuelan soccer federation released its list of 22 players tapped by manager Richard Paez to take on Colombia on November 17 and Bolivia three days later.
Among the additions are defender Gabriel Cichero plus two others who play for Argentine clubs, midfielder Cesar Gonzalez of Colon, and defender Oswaldo Vizcarrondo of Rosario Central.
Defender Alejandro Cichero, of Bulgaria's Litex, will sit out on November 17 after being suspended for accumulated yellow cards.
Also absent will be midfielder, Hector "Turbo" Gonzalez, who has fallen out with Paez since the coach said he had finally found the fullback he had hoped for in Gent defender Roberto Rosales.
