The game in Patra, Greece, will be an ideal opportunity for Waseige's men to warm-up for the World Cup finals in Japan and Korea in the summer.
The tournament is just over two months away and it is now time for national coaches to be fine-tuning their squads in readiness for the big kick-off.
Waseige has welcomed back Mbo Mpenza (pictured) from the squad after he returned from his unhappy spell at Galatasaray, and has now been playing regularly for Jupiler League side Mouscron.
However, his brother Emile is not fit enough to make the squad, and he joins Joos Valgaeren on the sidelines, with Waseige sweating on the pair's fitness for the World Cup.
Celtic defender Valgaeren's World Cup dreams hang in the balance as he struggles to recover from a hernia operation in time to be fully fit for The Far East.
Full squad to face Greece:
Geert De Vlieger (Willem II), Frederic Herpoel (Ghent) Philippe Clement (FC Bruges), Eric Deflandre (Lyon), Nico van Kerckhoven (Schalke 04), Olivier Doll (Anderlecht), Daniel Van Buyten (Marseille), Jacky Peeters (Ghent), Bart Goor (Hertha Berlin), Timmy Simons (FC Bruges), Johan Walem (Standard Liege), Walter Baseggio (Anderlecht), Danny Boffin (St. Truiden), Stefaan Tanghe (FC Utrecht) Marc Wilmots (Schalke 04), Wesley Sonck (Genk), Gert Verheyen (FC Bruges), Mbo Mpenza (Mouscron).
