Cash-strapped Bolivia face struggle
BBC News – Jun 9, 2003
Acosta is a wily old fox who has been doing some fine work in Chile with the Cobreloa club. He would be an excellent choice for Bolivia. But even in ideal circumstances he or anyone else would struggle to take Bolivia all the way to the 2006 World Cup.

Scott Rawles, the U. Ski Team’s moguls coach who was at Wednesday’s news conference, said: “It’s huge for us having him play football… We can’t buy that publicity. ”
Bloom said he plans to take things year by year. “I would love to play (football) for four years, no doubt about it,” he said. “And I would love to compete in the Olympics in 2006 and win a gold medal, and I would love to star in my own movie. It just goes on and on. ”

There would be more opportunities for local kids to show their wares at that level. Programs would be given more focus and more support.

‘He’s not what you would expect on the touchline,’ says Watts. ‘He kicks every ball and is constantly moving. But he doesn’t bellow, he’s very much a thinking manager, and calm.
