Bolivia National Football Team Copa America 2019

Formidable on home turf thanks to the dizzying altitude of La Paz, Bolivia are famously weak when they come down to sea level. The Verde last qualified for a World Cup in 1994, while since hosting the Copa America and finishing second in 1997 they have progressed past the group stages on just one solitary occasion.

Their prospects in 2019 do not look much more optimistic. Bolivia won just once last year, against minnows Myanmar, and anything better than a first-round exit would represent a huge feat for the side, particularly after being drawn alongside hosts Brazil, whom they will meet in the tournament’s curtain-raiser.
