Ecuador include Kaviedes in World Cup squad

QUITO, May 9 (Reuters) - Ecuador included temperamental Argentina-based striker Ivan Kaviedes in their 23-man World Cup squad on Tuesday.

The Argentinos Juniors forward, who has also played club football in Italy, Spain, Mexico, England and Portugal, last appeared for his country in a 5-2 World Cup qualifying win over Paraguay in March 2005.

Kaviedes's disciplinary problems have restricted his appearances under Ecuador coach Luis Fernando Suarez.

The major absentee in the squad was Franklin Salas. Doctors said last month the striker would not recover from a knee operation in time for the tournament.

Ecuador have been drawn in Group A with hosts Germany, Poland and Costa Rica.

Goalkeepers: Edwin Villafuerte (Deportivo Quito), Cristian Mora (LDU), Damian Lanza (Aucas)

Defenders: Ivan Hurtado (Al Arabi, Qatar), Geovanny Espinoza (LDU), Ulises de la Cruz (Aston Villa), Paul Ambrossi (LDU), Neicer Reasco (LDU), Jorge Guagua (El Nacional), Jose Luis Perlaza (Olmedo)

Midfielders: Marlon Ayovi (Deportivo Quito), Edwin Tenorio (Barcelona), Edison Mendez (LDU), Patricio Urrutia (LDU), Cristian Lara (El Nacional), Segundo Castillo (El Nacional), Luis Antonio Valencia (Recreativo Huelva, Spain), Luis Fernando Saritama (Deportivo Quito).

Forwards: Cristian Benitez (El Nacional), Felix Borja (El Nacional), Carlos Tenorio (Al Sadd, Qatar), Agustin Delgado (LDU), Ivan Kaviedes (Argentinos Juniors, Argentina)
