Even before the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup the players of one of the participating teams already fulfilled their task. The players of the national football team of Panama already became nation’s heroes which is the task in front of all of the 32 participating teams. The players of Panama became national heroes only by qualifying for the World Cup in Russia. Because of this popularity, thousands of fans of the team went to the airport in Panama City and showed their support to the football players. This was done because, until the end of the World Cup, the national football team of Panama will not return to its homeland. The hype was so huge that couple of thousand fans slept at the airport in order to have a chance to see their heroes.
The plane of the national team left from Panama City to New York. From this American city, the team will fly to Oslo in Norway where the Northern Americans will have a friendly game against Norway. After the end of this friendly game, Panama will travel to Russia where they will continue with the preparations for the biggest tournament in the world. Panama will have the hard task to face the teams of England, Belgium and Tunisia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage.
