LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) -- Bolivia coach Gustavo Quinteros resigned on Tuesday following his club's poor play in World Cup qualifying.

Bolivia has struggled in qualifying with only four points in six matches and plays its next game in September against Ecuador.

Carlos Chaves, president of the Bolivian football federation, did not mention a successor in accepting Quinteros' resignation, but local reports suggest Spanish coach Xavier Azkargorta is a top candidate.
