"Bolivia scored three unanswered first-half goals and held on for a 3-2 victory over Ecuador on Monday in Group A of the Copa America to record its first victory in the competition in 18 years....  Ronald Raldes scored in the 5th minute, heading in a corner behind Ecuador goalkeeper Alexander Dominguez. Martin Smedberg scored with a low, 25-meter (yard) shot in the 18th. And Marcelo Moreno converted a penalty in the 43rd as Bolivia took total control of the first half.... Ecuador got back into the match in the 48th when Valencia chipped in a close-range shot. The early goal inspired Ecuador to continue pressing with Quinonez forced to make several key saves.

January 8, 2015 - Nelson Cabrera could be avialable
"Bolivia could have an additional defensive option for the 2015 Copa América after Nelson Cabrera revealed his plans to accept citizenship of the nation. The Paraguay-born centre-back has been with Bolivar since 2012 and now qualifies to represent his adopted homeland having lived there for at least two years. Cabrera, who has previously played for Olimpia, Cerro Porteño and Colo-Colo, will now hope to force his way into the plans of new coach Mauricio Soria. The 31-year-old, who has impressed under former Bolivia boss Xabier Azkargorta with Bolivar, told local journalists he has the 'desire to start the naturalisation process'." - Copa America

November 18, 2014 - Raldes, Lizio & Arce score in win over Venezuela
"Bolivia ended their 21-month wait for a win with an entertaining 3-2 victory over Venezuela on Tuesday. Juan Carlos Arce's stunning 87th-minute effort gave Bolivia their first win since February 2013. Goals from Ronald Raldes and Damian Lizio had put them on track after Wilker Angel's opener for Venezuela in La Paz. But Alexander Gonzalez scored a 71st-minute equaliser for the visitors, who are winless since September last year, before Arce's late effort." - SoccerWay
