    Joaquin Botero netted a hat-trick to help Bolivia hammer Argentina 6-1 and keep their slim 2010 World Cup hopes alive.

    Although Lucho Gonzalez brought Diego Maradona's side level in the first half but the onslaught that followed stunned Argentina.

    Marcelo Martins, Alex Da Rosa and Didi Torrico scored one each in the historic win with Botero particularly potent for Bolivia.

    Argentina had beaten Venezuela 4-0 on Saturday but were a completely different side tonight while Bolivia also discarded the form book.

    Bolivia started the match positively - perhaps helped by the controversial altitude factor, 3,600metres above sea level - and tested goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo with several early shots.

    The Lazio custodian saved a left-footed shot by Martins after Luis Gatti Ribeiro penetrated Argentina's defence from the right in the ninth minute, 60 seconds before the keeper also stopped a Da Rosa strike from outside the box.

    Bolivia took the lead deservedly in the 11th minute as Martins was assisted by Botero and profited from a defensive mistake by Emiliano Papa to open the scoring with his right foot.

    Seconds later, a long-distance shot by Botero could have doubled the lead but the ball went wide.

    Argentina struggled to regroup until Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez began to capitalise on Bolivia's defensive mistakes.

    In the 20th minute the Barcelona star tried to lob the ball over Bolivia keeper Carlos Arias after combining with Tevez but Arias saved.

    Five minutes later, Arias was not so reliable as he failed to stop a long-distance shot by Lucho Gonzalez, who netted his first goal in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers to level the match.

    Bolivia scored a timely second after Argentina had wasted further chances.

    In the 33rd minute Arias saved an attempt by Messi after another defensive error by Bolivia and, in the following play, Carrizo failed to collect the ball and Javier Zanetti fouled Da Rosa in the box.

    Botero gave the hosts the lead from the spot.

    Twelve minutes later, Messi's free-kick was saved by Arias who then launched the ball forward with Papa making a crucial mistake. Botero then found Da Rosa who headed home before the half-time whistle.

    Bolivia needed only nine minutes after the interval to stretch the scoring as Martins eluded Papa again and Botero headed the ball to score his third goal.

    Maradona tried to mix things up by sending on Angel Di Maria for Maxi Rodriguez only for the young winger to be sent off in the 63rd minute for a bad foul on Ronald Garcia.

    Three minutes later Botero caused Papa nightmares again, netting his side's fifth goal before Torrico added another three minutes from time.

    Argentina suffered their worst defeat in 60 years when they were hammered 6-1 in Bolivia in a World Cup qualifier.

    Argentina, like so many teams before them, struggled to cope with the high altitude in the Bolivian mountains as Diego Maradona lost his 100 per cent record as manager in spectacular style.

    Striker Joaquin Botero helped himself to a hat-trick as Marcelo Martins, Alex da Rosa and Didi Torrico also got on the scoresheet with Luis Gonzalez getting the solitary goal for the visitors.

    Martins put Bolivia into a 12th minute lead but Argentina hit back on 25 minutes when Gonzalez equalised.

    Botero scored his first from the spot eight minutes later and Da Rosa gave the home side a two-goal cushion on the stroke of half-time.

    Bolivia weren't done there and Botero made it 4-1 nine minutes after the break. Things went from bad to worse for Maradona's men when Angel di Maria was dismissed after 64 minutes.

    Botero then scored his third two minutes later and Torrico rounded off a day to forget for the two-time World Cup winners.

    Argentina suffered their worst defeat in more than 60 years as they were thrashed 6-1 by Bolivia at high altitude in a World Cup qualifier.

    Striker Joaquin Botero hit a hat-trick, while Marcelo Martins, Didi Torrico and Alex da Rosa also scored in the rout.

    Luis Gonzalez replied for Argentina who also had substitute Angel di Maria sent off seven minutes after he had come on.

    Argentina coach Diego Maradona last year supported Bolivia's campaign to be allowed to stage games in La Paz.

    But Maradona's side, who had won their first three games under his charge - and without conceding a goal - looked breathless in the rarefied air 3,600m above sea level.

    And they also struggled with a pitch which looked well below the standard expected for an international match.

    Bolivia played very well - Argentina didn't

    "Every Bolivia goal was a stab in my heart," said Maradona.

    "If we had dreamed this was going to happen before the game, we would have thought it was impossible.

    "We have to give merit to Bolivia who were better than us in every part of the field.

    "There is nothing to say. They beat us well and now we have to start all over again.

    "Bolivia played a great game and hit the target with every attack.

    "They all played well from the goalkeeper to the last substitute."

    Bolivia knew that anything less than the three points would put an end to their World Cup aspirations, and they completely ripped apart a woeful Argentina to claim an extraordinary 6-1 victory.

    The Bolivians were in much need of a win and they piled heavy pressure on the Argentina goal with a great deal of authority.

    Marcelo Moreno almost put Bolivia ahead in the fifth minute, but his powerful drive was spectacularly saved by Juan Pablo Carrizo.

    The South American minnows continued to pepper the Argentine goal, and in the 11th minute they went ahead when Moreno beat Carrizo with a well-placed shot on the turn.

    Minutes later Didi Torrico struck the crossbar with a venomous long-range drive that caught Carrizo by surprise.

    Argentina came more into the match as the half progressed, and they almost drew level after a fine combination between Carlos Tevez and Lionel Messi.

    In the 24th minute Luis Gonzalez tested Bolivia with what seemed to be a mild long-range drive, but it took an awkward bounce that fooled Carlos Arias before finding itself in the back of the net.

    The match continued to be highly entertaining, with both teams creating their fare share of goal-scoring opportunities.

    In the 33rd minute Bolivia were awarded a penalty when Javier Zanetti committed a clumsy foul inside of the area. Joaquin Botero stepped up to the spot and beat Carrizo with a good finish.

    But Bolivia weren't done yet, as in first half injury-time they added their third. Arias caught out Botero with a quick goal kick and the striker sent a perfect cross to the back post which Alex Da Rosa met with a powerful header.

    Not in their wildest dreams would Diego Maradona and his side have imagined to be going into the break 3-1 down, even if the effects of the high altitude in La Paz may have had an influence.

    After the break Bolivia continued to look threatening, and in the 54th minute Botero extended their advantage with a superb header from a difficult angle.

    When it seemed that Argentina's afternoon couldn't be any worse, in the 63rd minute Angel Di Maria, who had only just entered the field, was sent-off for a violent tackle.

    Bolivia continued to dominate, and two minutes later Botero completed a sensation hat-trick when he beat Carrizo with a straight forward finish after another lapse of concentration in the Argentina defense.

    Finally, four minutes from full-time Didi Torrico completed the rout when he beat Carrizo with a well-placed drive from outside of the area.

    The final whistle couldn't have come any sooner for Maradona and his Argentina squad, who suffered one of the heaviest defeats in their entire history.
