World Cup

World Cup 2018 – Team Analysis – Panama

One of two teams who will be making their World Cup debut this summer, Panama sealed qualification in the most dramatic of styles to exorcise the ghosts of their near-miss four years ago.

A late win over Costa Rica – featuring a hugely controversial “ghost goal” – sealed third spot in the fifth round of CONCACAF qualifying and ensured Panama’s passage to Russia at the expense of the United States, who had denied the Canal Men an inter-confederation play-off spot in 2013.

Success for Panama is simply reaching a World Cup tournament and little is expected of the Central American country in Russia, particularly given their difficult group draw.

Panama’s opening match is against Belgium on Monday 18 June in Sochi, which is followed by an encounter with England in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday 24 June. Hernan Dario Gomez’s side could feasibly already be eliminated by the time they face Tunisia in Saransk on Thursday 28 June.

Rank outsiders with the bookmakers, Panama only need to look to the performances of Costa Rica – who were widely written off before the tournament had begun – in 2014 for inspiration.

An ageing squad, an unconvincing qualification campaign and some disappointing pre-World Cup friendly results, however, suggest Fantasy managers ought to be giving the Panama squad a wide berth.

Road to Qualification

Panama entered CONCACAF qualification at the fourth-round stage, qualifying from the four-team group with a game to spare and finishing runners-up to Costa Rica, who beat them twice en route to the “Hexagonal”.

Luis Tejada was the only Panama player to register more than one goal in this stage, with one of his two strikes coming from the penalty spot.

The “Hex” began in positive fashion for Panama, who emerged from their tricky opening-day encounter in Honduras with all three points thanks to Fidel Escobar’s superb free-kick.

A subsequent six-match winless run, featuring four draws and 1-0 defeats to Trinidad and Tobago and Mexico, would surely have put paid to Panama’s automatic qualification hopes had the US and Honduras not also been in middling form.

A 3-0 home win over Trinidad and Tobago preceded a morale-sapping 4-0 defeat to the US in Panama’s penultimate fixture, which looked to have scuppered Los Canaleros’ chances for good.

That now infamous last-gasp win over Costa Rica, coupled with the USA’s surprise 2-1 defeat in Trinidad, sealed the third CONCACAF qualifying place in memorable fashion and condemned Honduras to a play-off against Australia, which they subsequently lost. The US meanwhile failed to qualify for a World Cup for the first time since 1986.

Coach Gomez largely favoured a 4-4-2 during the qualification campaign, although a more defensive 5-4-1/4-5-1 has been preferred in recent friendlies.

Whichever formation is decided upon, there is no doubt that Panama will be content to sit back and defend against their World Cup group opponents and try to attack on the break.

Two of Panama’s goals in the 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago came from swift counter-attacks, with Gabriel Torres’ opener a stunning 80-yard solo run that stemmed from an opposition corner.

Panama scored at a rate of 0.9 goals per match in the “Hex” (only bottom side Trinidad and Tobago scored fewer goals) and their limited attack is not one that will particularly appeal to Fantasy managers.

The World Cup debutants were, in fact, the only nation to qualify for this summer’s tournament to finish with a negative goal difference in their group campaign.

The heavy defeat to the US and a 6-0 thrashing by Switzerland in March suggests that Panama’s defence is far from watertight, either.

CONCACAF Fifth Round

Most starts: Luis Ovalle, Anibal Godoy (9), Jaime Penedo, Gabriel Gomez, Roman Torres (8), Adolfo Machado, Edgar Barcenas (7), Fidel Escobar, Armando Cooper, Blas Perez, Gabriel Torres (6)

Most goals: Blas Perez, Roman Torres (2)

Most assists: Anibal Godoy (2)

Star player Alberto Quintero, who made nine appearances and recorded two assists in qualification, has been forced to pull out of Panama’s 23-man squad after suffering a foot injury in the 6 June friendly against Norway.

Panama haven’t won any of their six friendlies contested in the three most recent international breaks, losing to Iran, Denmark, Switzerland and Norway and drawing with Wales and Northern Ireland.

Though Panama have won two other friendly internationals against Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago since October, their squads in both these matches were made up of second-string players.

The Key Targets

To be brutally honest: none. All of the below should effectively be reclassified as “long shots”, as the inclusion of any Panama player in our Fantasy teams would be a speculative punt at best.

Blas Perez (£5.3m on Fantasy iTeam | £5.0m on McDonald’s FIFA) is perhaps favourite to get the nod up front if Gomez persists with a 4-5-1 or 5-4-1, having started Panama’s last three qualification matches and his country’s 6 June friendly against Norway.

The 37-year-old striker is Panama’s joint-top scorer (with 43 goals) of all time, along with Luis Tejada (£5.6m on Fantasy iTeam | £5.0m on McDonald’s FIFA).

Neither Perez or Tejada, who is a veteran himself at 36 years old, have scored since Panama secured World Cup qualification.

Gabriel Torres (£5.5m on Fantasy iTeam | £6.0m on McDonald’s FIFA), who scored a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Wales last November, seems to be the sacrificial lamb in Gomez’s switch from 4-4-2 to a more defensive shape. Torres’ speed could be useful on the counter, however: witness his incredible breakaway goal in the 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago last September.

Roman Torres (£5.4m on Fantasy iTeam | £5.0m on McDonald’s FIFA) has ten goals in 111 appearances for the national side and represents Panama’s main goal threat from defence.

Torres scored the winner in that crucial victory over Costa Rica and was also on target late on in the 2-2 draw with Honduras earlier in the qualification campaign.

With goalkeepers receiving save points in both Fantasy iTeam and McDonald’s FIFA, veteran custodian Jaime Penedo (£5.3m on Fantasy iTeam | £4.5m on McDonald’s FIFA) could be a cheap source of points – particularly if deploying the Bench Boost chip in McDonald’s FIFA – in fixtures against Belgium and England.

Areas to Avoid

Penedo and any bench-filling fodder aside, there will likely be little investment in Panama assets for their opening two group encounters with Belgium and England.

Though we’ve name-dropped three Panama forwards (Perez, Gabriel Torres and Tejada) in the Key Targets section, the Canal Men’s attack looks particularly anaemic.

Panama scored less than a goal per game during the “Hex” and haven’t found the net in their four international friendlies against European opposition in 2018.

A 6-0 defeat against Switzerland in March is also enough to deter serious investment in Panama’s defence, despite budget-friendly Fantasy options such as the shot-happy Fidel Escobar (£5.3m on Fantasy iTeam | £4.0m on McDonald’s FIFA) and long throw specialist Adolfo Machado (£5.3m on Fantasy iTeam | £4.5m on McDonald’s FIFA) to be found in their squad.

Expect plenty of yellow and possibly red cards too: the Panamanians are fond of a tackle or two.

    Last RMT for today

    Muslera Uzoho
    Meunier Kimmich Danilo Dalsgaard Mojica
    Muller JRod Ljajic Belhanda Kvist
    Lukaku Jesus Cavani

    Changed focus from not WC'ing week 1 and instead doubling up on teams with easy groups (Germany, Brazil, Belgium, Uruguay, Colombia)
    I have a captain problem on day 3 but I'm not sure how bad that is considering that I still have 4 days of Cavani, Lukaku, Muller/Jesus, JRod as options.

    Could do Jesus + Muller > Messi + Carrasco but honestly don't like Carrasco much and Jesus + Muller is really good.

    1. Reedy
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Are you sure Ljajic will start over Kostic? I've just been trying to wrap my head around the Serbia team.

      1. Camzy
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Ljajic is the CAM. Kostic a winger.

        1. Reedy
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          Right. WhoScored has Ljajic starting on the wing in a 4-2-3-1, and Milinkovic-Savic as CAM. This is what's confused me I think. But then Pinnacle.com seems to back that up, just with Kostic in place of Ljajic.

          1. Camzy
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 14 days ago

            If what my research says is right, they line up like this in midfield.

            Matic - Milinkovic-Savic
            Tadic - Ljajic - Kostic

            Matic is the DM, SMS is the driving midfielder, Ljajic the CAM, Tadic and Kostic the wingers.

            1. Reedy
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 14 days ago

              Ah ok, thanks. The Serbia preview on here did mention that the manager hadn't settled on a formation yet and they could move to 4-3-3. But the last manager got sacked because he wanted to play M-Savic as a DM and he didn't like it, ha. So I just assumed he'd be the CAM this time.

              1. Reedy
                • 8 Years
                4 months, 14 days ago

                Ah I guess driving midfielder is different though, and Matic sits. And they call him SMS do they? I'm glad I've got an acronym for him.

            2. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 14 days ago

              Umm u're missing Milivojevic here mate?

              1. Reedy
                • 8 Years
                4 months, 14 days ago

                Hey that's a point.

                1. Reedy
                  • 8 Years
                  4 months, 14 days ago

                  It still looks like a 4-3-3 because of SMS in there, lol. But yeah I missed that.

                  1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
                    • 4 Years
                    4 months, 14 days ago

                    It's prolly going to be like this: Matić, Milivojević, SMS(Sergej-Mil-Savic), Tadic, Kostic, Mitrogoal:)

                    1. Reedy
                      • 8 Years
                      4 months, 14 days ago

                      Yeah that looks possible.

              2. Camzy
                • 8 Years
                4 months, 14 days ago

                I looked into this. Milivojevic I think has been shunted to backup CM by SMS. I would be surprised if Ljajic doesn't start.

                1. Reedy
                  • 8 Years
                  4 months, 14 days ago

                  But they won't play 5 at the back so who else starts alongside those 5?

                2. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
                  • 4 Years
                  4 months, 14 days ago

                  Could be but is Ljajic going to start every game? Maybe first maybe second... Kostic is much safer option imo. Ljajić is prolly gonna play vs Costarica, not so sure coach is gonna go that offensive vs Brazil and Swiss even though I'd like to see them play offensively.

                  1. Camzy
                    • 8 Years
                    4 months, 14 days ago

                    Ljajic offers more attacking flair than SMS frankly. I agree maybe he won't play vs Brazil but certainly the first two games I would assume he starts and those are the games you want him for anyway.

                    Kostic is safer but his returns are awful.

                    1. Reedy
                      • 8 Years
                      4 months, 14 days ago

                      Maybe I misunderstood...you only have 5 players above but were you just listing the mids? So Mitrovic starts in front of those guys?

                      1. Reedy
                        • 8 Years
                        4 months, 14 days ago

                        In which case it's still a 4-2-3-1. Which is fine. I need my bed

    2. Red Dagger ✪
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      So no Ziyach then?

      1. Camzy
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Belhanda is playing CAM I found out, 2 goals in the recent friendlies too. I think for 1.5m it's worth downgrading for the sake of the rest of the team. It's a punt either way.

        1. Red Dagger ✪
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 14 days ago

          Ok. I'll check that out.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 14 days ago

          I can switch him for Ziyach and then Guerrero for Jesus.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 14 days ago

            Is Ljajic a better shout than Milinkovic-Savic in a draft game?

      2. Pariße
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Just something I noticed while we're talking about him, I think the official fantasy site got his name wrong. It's actually Ziyech.

      B with another 5.5 def. There are loads of great options.

      1. 007 [BALEGIUM]
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Yes but already have Danilo and Godin

    2. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A and Isco -> Silva to save funds.

      1. 007 [BALEGIUM]
        • 2 Years

        Silva is classified as forwards.

      Danilo

  9. On minus four (-4)

    Glik seems to be injured. What is Poland predicted defense lineup for round 1 ?

  10. some witty pun
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Prediction for Golden boot winner?
    I'm going for either Lukaku or Kane. Both have chances to pad stats against Panama and Tunisia followed by a relatively easy R16 game
    By the same logic Hazard has a good off chance to shine as well,possibly pulling off what Muller and James did in the 10 and 14 WC for golden boot

    1. Chandler Bing

      Neymar

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

      Dont agree that Colombia/Poland are easy opponents though

    4. 007 [BALEGIUM]
      • 2 Years

      Neymar

    5. some witty pun
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Brazil may be strong favorites, but goals are too spread out I feel. Coutinho takes many shots and Jesus is a focal point

  11. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    Giroud or Werner?

    1. 007 [BALEGIUM]

      Ljajic

  13. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    Who you reckon Will score more points in round 1?

    A) Giroud (Australia)
    B) Smolov (Saudi Arabia, Egypt)

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      If Giroud starts then he's likely to score more.

    Is trippier nailed? Or Will TAA push for a start?

      I don't think Trippier is nailed but much more so than TAA.

    Is there any reason not many are picking Ozil or Oezil as it is spelt in the game. Isn't he a beast when he plays for Germany? Is it because most are going for Muller/Werner. Thanks.

      Does the small box have any text in it? Maybe you have to many Brazillians or something?

          I just tried creating a league and that went wrong. Must be site problems

    any idea on my team :
    Navas / Uzoho
    Kimmich / Meunier / Varela / Hegazy / Spajic
    Mueller / Coutinho / Cueva / Belhanda / C.Sanchez
    Neymar / Cavani / Mbappe

    so the structure was like :
    5.0 / 4.0
    6.5 / 6.0 / 4.5 / 4.5 / 4.0
    9.5 / 9.0 / 6.0 / 5.5 / 4.5
    12.0 / 9.5 / 9.0

      Solid. I have GJesus and Lukaku instead of Neymar and Mbappee. Is Neymar worth the price?

        He is alongside messi are the kind of players who can create a hattrick in this tournament.

      Is Werner first choice seeing as though Gotze was left at home?

      Yes. Shame it is a litle out of date with the playing staff. Quite a few of the squad changed after the article was written

    Haven't seen Armani as ARG GK this season, ARG wouldn't go to russia with a experience-less GK wouldn't they?

    Caballero at 5 M could be come in handy.

    Haven’t been on here for ages, and just put together my FIFA WC team.
    I’m definitely not as knowledgeable on all the teams as I’d like to be, but have been watching a fair few friendlies over the last couple of weeks.

    Happy to see I was on a similar path to some on here.

    Any help or ideas would be appreciated

    Muslera
    Trippier - Kimmich - Marcelo - Meunier
    Lingard - SMS - Carrasco
    Messi - Guedes - Hazard

    Uzuho - Varela - Rogic - Sanchez

    Are any not regulars?

          They probably discovered your secret and decided to remove you from the game as per the T's and C's
