Batista called up three goalkeepers, nine defenders, 12 midfielders and three forwards for the upcoming qualifying date for the Soccer World Cup that will be held in Mexico, the United States and Canada.

Among the footballers called up, the names of striker Salomón Rondón stand out; the winger of the Spanish Cádiz, Darwin Núñez and the forward of the Santos of Brazil, Yeferson Soteldo.

The most notable absence is precisely in the least populated area on the list. Striker Josef Martínez was left out due to his inactivity after leaving Inter Miami of Major League Soccer (MLS).

Jon Aramburu from the Spanish Real Sociedad reserve team and Luis Mago from Argentine Banfield stand out among the new calls compared to the players who faced Brazil and Chile last time out.

Venezuela will face Ecuador on Thursday, November 16 at the Monumental de Maturín and on the 21st of the same month they will visit the Monumental de Lima to face Peru.

Last round of qualifying, Venezuela drew an excellent one-on-one draw against Brazil as a visitor and beat Chile three to zero.
