We should score 4 on them without breaking a sweat.

Hurrah for Paquador!

I disagree Loco...Why only 4?

Seriously,the difference between the two teams is huge.The worst Argentine is better than the best Bolivian player.

Etcheverry returns to the NT for an official game after 3 years!And that's only because of the absence of Julio Baldivieso!I don't know players like Uriona and Reyes yet,but i don't think they're better than El Diablo in order to justify his big period of not getting a call.

Bolivians also think they have better players than Erwin Sanchez,Limberg Gutierez,Jaime Moreno and ESPECIALLY Juan Manuel Pena.

Good luck then,they will need it!

I'm not sure if Erwin is still actively playing....I mean, he is a coach now .....but I' not following his team (Boavista) so I'm not sure if he is just the coach...or maybe a player/coach? I don't know

I think we have better options than Moreno, definitely. I prefer those 5 attackers that were called than Moreno.

Gutierrez is really good...at least when totally fit. I'm not sure if he is injured or something, but he should be called.

And Juan Manuel..... here I agree with you, our best defender is not called....

El Diablo back?? ....i don't know what to expect from him....this shall be interesting

And beware of "El Chacal" Botero

All in all I think we are going to beat Argentina by 3 or 4 goals ....well....maybe not, but I'm hoping for a good match for Bolivia. My prediction: 1-1

The Bolivians were able to weather the "hurricane" during the first half which ended 0-0. But the second half Argentina took it to level 5 and blew away the Boliovians.
