Mauricio Soria led Bolivia to a rare impressive result last month, but controversial comments could keep him from the full-time manager's job.

Bolivia pushed defending champions Germany all the way before going down by the only goal in the opening game of the 1994 World Cup. They drew with South Korea and had their moments against Spain before losing 3-1.

It was a fine generation, which seemed to promise much for the future. A whole group of important players were in their early 20s: Erwin "Platini" Sanchez and Julio Cesar Baldivieso to make the play, defenders Oscar Sanchez and Juan Manuel Pena, Marco "el diablo" Etcheverry and Jaime...
