Argentine Marcelo Bielsa, who manages Chile's national soccer team, on Monday called up Marcelo Salas, the nation's top goalscorer, as one of the 13 who will make up his five-a-side soccer team for friendlies against Switzerland and Austria in September.

Salas, who has scored 35 goals in the national kit, was last chosen in September 2005, for a match where Brazil battered Chile 5-0.

The most surprising choice is goalkeeper Cristopher Toselli, who plays for Chile's under-20 national team, but who has not made the A team at his club, Universidad Catolica.

Another surprise is the inclusion of Waldo Ponce, a Universidad defender who has not played for four months due to a knee injury.

Colo Colo, with six players, has contributed most to the national team, including strikers Eduardo Rubio and Rodolfo Moya. Also on the list are Audax Italiano's Carlos Villanueva, currently Chile's best midfielder, and Huachipato's Jose Contreas who plays a variety of positions.

Chile plays Switzerland on Sept. 7 and Austria in Sept. 11 both in Austrian capital Vienna.
