“I hope that the players we have called up come motivated to wear the national team shirt,” head coach Antonio Zago told journalists.

Bolivia will face Peru in La Paz on November 16 and Uruguay in Montevideo five days later.

The Verde are currently at the foot of the 10-team South American zone qualifying group, having failed to pick up a point from their first four games.

The top six sides will earn a direct berth at football’s showpiece tournament in the United States, Canada and Mexico while the seventh-ranked team will advance to an intercontinental playoff.
