Bolivia: New Sites Following FIFA Ban

A new blog has emerged to follow the controversial ban handed down by FIFA. Futbol de Altura [ES] is a blog started by Hugo Miranda that collects the most recent news of the ban. The page also includes YouTube videos of important games played in La Paz. One such video is labeled “Bolivia's Sin: Bolivia 2, Brasil 0,” which insinuates that the ban was supported by the Brazilian Federation because of its past problems playing in La Paz's altitude.
