Miguel Angel Portugal has revealed his first ever Bolivia squad as La Verde are set to face Argentina and Dominican Republic in international friendlies.
The Spanish coach was chosen as the man to replace Mauricio Soria just few days ago and he has now announced his first squad.
The four foreign-based players on the list are Marcelo Martins (54/14), Ricardo Pedriel (20/3), Diego Bejarano (9/1) and Martin Smedberg-Dalence (6/1).
Naturalised players Damian Lizio (6/1) and Pablo Escobar (20/3) have been included as well, but Jhasmani Campos (29/2) misses out.
Coach Miguel Angel Portugal will arrive in Bolivia next week to sign a contract with the national team chiefs before he starts preparing the team for games against Argentina and Dominican Republic.
