Moldova are to use a friendly with Luxembourg on 20 November to try out a number of uncapped players.

Youngsters picked
Coach Viktor Pasulko has called up several players from the Under-21 side, including FC Tiligul Tiraspol goalkeeper Evgheni Matiugin and FC Tiraspol duo, Roman Radcenco and Alexandr Melenciuc for the first time. Meanwhile, another Tiraspol player, Evgheni Patula, returns after a long lay-off.

Promising campaign
RSC Anderlecht's former Under-17 international Denis Calincov is in line for a second cap, as Moldova look to build for their 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign on the back of a promising UEFA EURO 2004™ bid, which included victories against Austria and Belarus as they finished fourth in Group 3.

Moldova squad
Matiughin, Covalenco, Catinsus, Cebotari, Olexici, Testemitanu, Barisev, Priganiuc, Ivanov, Radcenco, Patula, Melenciuc, Covalciuc, Andriuta, Dadu, Calincov, Bursuc.
