PANAMA

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

N/A

55 Her­nan Dario Gomez Ro­man Tor­res. A strong de­fender who plays his foot­ball for Seat­tle Sounders. Tor­res has a knack of scor­ing and is deadly from the penalty spot. He also scored the win­ning goal in the fi­nal qual­i­fier against Costa Rica which saw Panama reach their first ever World Cup. Tor­res was de­clared a na­tional hero and will be up for a real scrap in this tough-look­ing group. Group Panama de­fend well and have a side packed with ex­pe­ri­ence. Strik­ers Luis Te­jada and Blas Perez have each scored 43 in­ter­na­tional goals but at 36 and 37 years of age they will find it dif­fi­cult to turn back the clock. So an early exit ear­marked prob­a­bly af­ter just two games.
