Bolivia coach Julio Cesar Baldivieso has named a 30-man preliminary squad for 2018 World Cup qualifiers vs Uruguay and Ecuador.
The initial list consists entirely of home-based footballers, who will gather on Monday, September 21, whereas players plying their trade abroad will be added at a later date.
Coach Julio Cesar Baldivieso, who had replaced Mauricio Soria after the 2015 Copa America, has already managed to clash with two key footballers, with captain Ronald Raldes (89/2) and top scorer Marcelo Moreno (55/14) making it clear they would not play for the national team under the current boss.
Bolivia will have plenty to prove in upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Ecuador, having suffered a 7-0 loss to Argentina last time out.
Goalkeeper Romel Quinonez (12/0) has been called to the squad despite criticising the new coach, but veteran Daniel Vaca (10/0) misses out.
The likes of Sebastian Gamarra, Ricardo Pedriel, Martin Smedberg, Diego Bejarano and Gustavo Pinedo are all expected to be added to the roster in the coming days.
