Club History

The 2018 World Cup in Russia will be Panama’s first ever appearance at the tournament. The side came through CONCACAF qualifying and finished third in the group. Only two of Panama’s regular players play in Europe as most of the squad play their club football in South and North America. Age could be a concern for Hernan Dario Gomez’s team. Nine out of Gomez’s usual 24-man roster are over the age of 32. That experience could be turn out to be a positive as Gomez has stated the team will be in Russia to learn and compete.
