Goalkeepers: Carlos Lampe (Sport Boys), Romel Quiñónez (Bolívar), Guillermo Viscarra (Oriente Petrolero)

Midfielders: Walter Veizaga (The Strongest), Raúl Castro (The Strongest), Fernando Saucedo (Wilstermann) Cristhian Machado (Wilstermann), Pedro Azogue (Oriente Petrolero), Alejandro Meleán (Oriente Petrolero), Jhasmani Campos (Kazma), Martin Smedberg-Dalence (IFK Goteborg)

Attackers: Carmelo Algarañaz (Petrolero), Rodrigo Ramallo (The Strongest), Juan Carlos Arce (Bolívar), Bruno Miranda (Universidad de Chile), Yasmani Duk (New York Cosmos)

The Skinny:There isn’t much to say about Bolivia’s team, except that they look outmatched in their group and in this tournament.

Despite having four players who play for The Strongest, Bolivia are definitely the weakest team in the Copa America, at least on paper. Argentina and Chile should have no trouble dispatching them, and Panama should beat them comfortably as well.

Bolivia will likely start New York Cosmos striker Yasmani Duk up front, and may also feature veteran Juan Carlos Arce. Duk and Arce could potentially cause some trouble, but the defenses of their competition should be able to cope with the pair.


It will be up to Yasmani Duk to try and cause some trouble up front for Bolivia

Bolivia’s defense is probably the srongest part of the team, with Marvin and Diego Bejarano shoring up the back line.

Young and promising midfielder Pedro Azogue will probably see some action, although it may be on the right instead of his normal place in the center. Azogue has played on the right previously for Bolivia. Azogue is the captain of the Bolivian Under-20 side, and this will be a big chance for him to prove himself in a major tournament.

Bolivia had not done well in World Cup qualifying so far, and it looks like the Copa America will be more of the same for the Bolivians.

Key Performers: Yasmani Duk, Marvin Bejarano, Pedro Azogue
