Panama hoping for British-style challenge ahead of England tie

By Liam Blackburn

Panama will use Tuesday's friendly with Northern Ireland as a yardstick for how ready they are to face England at the World Cup, striker Gabriel Torres has said.

World Cup fever has hit the Central American country ahead of their first ever participation at the premier global tournament, and over 13,000 supporters are expected at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez to attend their farewell friendly against Michael O'Neill's side tomorrow night.

Los Canaleros will then head to Europe, and eventually Russia, where Belgium, England and Tunisia are their group opponents.

Panama have already drawn with Wales in November and are hoping this week's match will pose a British-style challenge in Panama City.

"They are a complicated rival, a typical European team, English bred," said Torres.

"It's going to be a team we are going to use to measure ourselves to know how we can better apply the work we've been doing.

"We're going to face this game very seriously, it will be in front of our people. People want to see a show and hopefully we can deliver that."
