Despite it being Panama’s first international tournament, conceding nine goals in two games is tough for any team to take. Although Baloy’s strike against the Three Lions sent the fans into pandemonium, this was just a small sense of celebration during a fixture in which the debut nation certainly struggled.
It hasn’t been plain sailing for the North African side either. Tunisia were robbed of a point by a Harry Kane inspired England during their opening fixture, whilst Romelu Lukaku bullied the Tunisian defence in a 5-2 defeat by the Belgians.
Unfortunately for both sides, the final whistle of this fixture will mark the end of their World Cup campaigns in Russia. Therefore, each side will be aiming to leave the tournament with their heads held high, by securing a win in the final game of the Group Stages.
Armando Cooper of Panama, a battling central midfielder, will miss this fixture due to suspension
