Panama World Cup 2018 Team Profile

It is fascinating that the Central American Republic of Panama qualified for Russia among all the big teams of that region. The nation will be making their maiden appearance in the World Cup tournament since the inception in 1930.

Panama qualified after a dramatic victory over Costa Rica in a match that ended 2-1. The team vehemently strived to get into this year’s world cup, something that yielded fruits at last. In fact, the team finished third in their CONCACAF qualifying group which included the likes of USA, Mexico, and Costa Rica.

Many people around the globe are eager to see the kind of play that the team will display at the world cup. Nonetheless, the team is deemed to have more hardworking than talented players. Most of the players have been playing for a long time and are experienced in international football. This team will be fighting out of the group stage against England, Belgium, and Tunisia.

Key Players

There may not be many standout players in the Panama squad but that doesn’t matter. The few that are in the team for the Russia edition are the same that made history by qualifying for the first World Cup. On the other hand, that cannot be said without mentioning a few who may lead in this first quest to gain the worldwide attention.

The team captain Roman Torres, who scored the goal that clinched qualification is a superb striker who will be striving to showcase his ability. He is currently playing for Seattle Sounders in the USA.

Ismael Diaz who plays a forward position for Deportivo La Coruna in the Spanish La Liga is another one who will be looking forward to making his country proud.

The high flying Municipal Fc Blas Perez has been on form throughout the qualifying campaign. He scored 11 goals for his side and will be aiming to do the same in Russia.

The History of Panama at the World Cup

Panama has never been in the world cup. This is their first time and will be aiming to impress. Despite odds being against their progress out of the group stage, the head coach Hernan Dario Gomez has faith that they will be fired up to make something out of the tournament.

Final Comment

Panama may be foreseen as the team to hold onto the bottom position in group G. however, only time can tell. This edition of the World Cup may perhaps be dominated by underdogs including Panama among others.
