History of the Panama National Team
Panama has a long history of International football, playing their first match in 1938 against Venezuela, a game they won 3-1. The team were part of the first ever CONCACAF Championship in 1963, they didn’t enter the competition again until it converted to the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 1993, where they have featured in every tournament since. Their best result to date is runner-up in both 2005 and 2013.
Panama has entered the qualification stages for every edition of the FIFA World Cup since 1978, but 2018 marks the first time that the Panama football shirt will be on display during the final tournament. The team finished third in the CONCACAF World Cup qualification tournament securing their place at Russia 2018, an achievement so monumental to the country that a Bank Holiday was immediately declared for the day after their qualification in order for a celebration to take place.
