Members of Bolivia's national football team have quit en masse, demanding changes to rules and standards in the country's sports programme and better representation for their sports union.
The move could leave the country without a team to take the field against Peru and Brazil next month in Bolivia's last two World Cup qualifiers.
Evo Morales, the Bolivian president, has called for "nationalising" the team to help shape things up.
But as Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro reports, such a move would violate the rules of world football governing body, Fifa.
