They are headed by captain Dwight Yorke, who features along with his Sunderland team-mates Carlos Edwards and Kenwyne Jones, Walsall goalkeeper Clayton Ince, Brighton midfielder Chris Birchall, Crewe defender Dennis Lawrence, Wrexham's Silvio Spann and Bristol City striker Stern John.

Swansea forward Jason Scotland will not join the Soca Warriors because of an agreement with club boss Roberto Martinez, who wants him for their FA Cup clash with Fulham the following Saturday.

Coach Francisco Maturana told the TTFF website: "We have looked at all the possibilities and we believe this is the selection that can take us through the game and help us get the best possible result."

The match will be played next Wednesday at the Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador.

Trinidad & Tobago squad: Clayton Ince (Walsall), Marvin Phillip (W Connection); Russell Latapy (player-assistant coach), Dennis Lawrence (Crewe), Keyeno Thomas (Joe Public), Aklie Edwards (Defence Force), Makan Hislop (United Petrotrin); Carlos Edwards (Sunderland), Chris Birchall (Brighton), Silvio Spann (Wrexham), Clyde Leon, Trent Noel (San Juan Jabloteh), Densill Theobald (Caledonia AIA), Anthony Wolfe (North East Stars), Keon Daniel (United Petrotrin); Dwight Yorke, Kenwyne Jones (both Sunderland), Stern John (Bristol City), Kendall Jagdeosingh (Puerto Rico Islanders), Cornell Glen (unattached).
