LA PAZ, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Bolivia's friendlies in
Turkey next month against Finland and Bulgaria have been
cancelled following FIFA's announcement they were investigating
two matches played in Antalya on Wednesday, the Bolivian
Football Federation (FBF) said on Sunday.
Bolivia followed Bulgaria's lead and asked FIFA on Friday to
investigate refereeing irregularities in their 2-1 defeat by
Latvia. Bulgaria draw 2-2 with Estonia the same day and all
seven goals in the two games were scored from penalties.
"Bolivia had other matches scheduled in Turkey - against
Finland on March 25 and Bulgaria four days later - but the
programme organised by a private international company has been
cancelled," FBF manager Alberto Lozada told reporters.
Local media said Bolivia were seeking replacement friendlies
in Central America in March to continue their preparation for
the Copa America in Argentina in July.
