Roux, who is an Under-20 New Zealand international, has never been capped at international level, but was called upon by coach Ricki Herbert for the crucial games against Mexico.
Herbert has also included the club-less Tony Lochhead and Jeremy Christie, while reigning A-League Johnny Warren Medal winner Marco Rojas returns for the first time after recovering from an ankle injury.
West Ham defender Winston Reid will captain the side.
