The side was eliminated in the first round of the tournament after losing to Colombia 2-1, then 4-1 to Brazil and a 2-1 defeat by Costa Rica.

The 55-year-old took over in September last year, however, the team has also not performed well in the South American qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, where they’re seventh in the 10-team standings, with five points from six games.
