He managed the national team of Chile from 1996 to 2001, leading them to the 1998 FIFA World Cup despite having only managed one professional team before taking over the Chile job. He took over Bolivia in 2004, but seriously failed and returned to manage Chile in 2005. In July 2007 Acosta resigned from managing the Chilean national team soon after the Copa América, which was held in Venezuela.
