Panama Squad

Panama made history last year and qualified for their first ever World Cup. It was truly a remarkable achievement and whatever happens at the World Cup, we are sure that Panamanians will be proud of their team.

Panama have been drawn in Group G with Belgium, England and Tunisia. Let’s be honest, Panama are the most likely team to not progress from the group. But we will be happy to be proved wrong!
