Coach Gustavo Quinteros, meanwhile, chose the opposite direction as a player, the Santa Fe born man eschewing his native Argentina to appear 26 times for Bolivia. He may have only a handful of friendlies under his belt, but will hope to secure third-place in a group likely to be dominated by big-guns Argentina and Colombia.
Despite a trying season at Shakhtar Donetsk where he has struggled for both regular playing time and goals, the hopes of the Bolivian fans lies, without a doubt, in his enormous potential and talent.
Martins' outstanding pace make him a dangerous forward, with the bonus of an already impressive level of experience taking on top-class defenders at the age of just 23.
In the area, his finishing ability is a highlight, as is his intelligence and goalscoring instinct which marks him as a constant threat no matter the opposition.

The most important representative of a golden generation in Bolivian football, 'El Diablo' was the key piece in the team that qualified for the 1994 World Cup under the direction of Xabier Azkargorta, the first time that the nation had achieved such a milestone.
He was also part of the side which finished runners-up in the 1997 Copa America to Brazil on home soil, and ranks among the cream of Bolivian footballers in the historic list of appearances and goals. Etcheverry was a constant threat to defenders with his aggressive forward play and fearsome ability, and is rightly considered one of the gems of the country's footballing history.
