    Decent first half the wheels came off after that. Still great this golden generation made it to a World Cup even if four years late.

    Panama lost 6-1. While England led 6-0, Felipe Baloy scored his fourth goal in his 102nd cap, which is the sixth most for Panama. Baloy got his first cap in 2001 and is 37.

    I feel like this side is four years too old, I feel like they would have been more competitive in 2014. However some positive signs I like Jose Luis Rodriguez

    Panama had 0 points, 2 goals scored (including an own goal by Tunisia), and 11 goals allowed. They finished last of the 32 teams. They had the worst goal differential since Korea DPR (North Korea) scored 1 and allowed 12 in 2010. Both of those were surprised qualifications, and Korea DPR is now 108th in the FIFA Rankings.

    Well, the road to Qatar 2022 just got officially even harder.

    1. CONCACAF (and FIFA), announce that the FIFA ranking will now be used to determine the 6 automatic spots into the hexagonal. The top 3 ranked teams at the end of the HEX will go to Qatar
    2. Spots 7 - 29 will fight it out, Copa Oro style, in the upcoming Liga de Naciones, with the winner then granted the opportunity to play against the 4th ranked team at the end of the hex.
    3. The winner of the match, will then have a playoff against a team from one of the other conferences to determine who gets the last spot into Qatar 2022

    this totally puts the current 5th to 8th ranked teams in a very tough situation. Basically this new tourney , Liga de Naciones, will be our qualifiers. And to add, there's only about 3 FIFA dates left for friendlies, which have to be scheduled efficiently because now the rival matters.

    The next FIFA ranking comes on July 25 2019. Hopefully the Copa Oro quarterfinal finish boosts us enough to get into the top 6, but from what Mr. Chip is forecasting, looks like Panama is at spot 7, with El Salvador 10 points ahead. That means at the moment we are out of the HEX, and have to duke it out with 29 teams (at least 16 games) to get the opportunity of 2 playoffs for the last WC spot.

    Good Luck! Si se pueded

    Breaking news - Chaluja and the rest of the outgoing administration KNEW about the format changes, and

    1. did not communicate this to the new administration under Arias
    2. knowing the change of format, decided to assign an interim Coach (Stemple) for the 5 friendlies between September and December 2018. This coach, not being informed of the importance of friendlies under the new format, used the friendlies as opportunity to test out alternate teams/lineups.
    3. did not communicate to the new coach (Dely) of the new format so he took Gold Cup game 3 lightly and threw out a B team vs USA (these points would have mattered inmensely in the FIFA ranking)

    Just one big Sh*t show.. Anyways there's still a chance, but now we have to figure out how to make the 10 point difference between us and El Salvador. The Liga de Naciones will be hard, because our group includes Mexico, who we HAVE to beat TWICE in order to have any hope.
