Head-to-Head: Canada vs. Panama – All-time Results

    Canada and Panama will take to the pitch twice over the coming seven days in the latest fixtures of the third round of CONCACAF World Cup Qualification.

    Somewhat curiously the two have only met on six previous occasions. Perhaps even more surprising, Canada is undefeated against the Panamanians, tallying two wins and four draws.

    Here’s a rundown of those meetings:

1996 – August 30th    World Cup Qualifier    Commonwealth Stadium – Edmonton, AB, Canada

    Canada won 3-1 on first half goals from Geoff Aunger and Paul Peschisolido before Jorge Dely Valdés - the twin brother of current manager Julio - and Carlo Corrazin exchanged second half strikes.

    Under the tutelage of Bob Lenarduzzi, the match featured the likes of Craig Forrest, Frank Yallop, Nick Dasovic, Randy Samuel, Colin Miller, Lyndon Hooper, Alex Bunbury, and Mark Watson, as well as a Panamanian chap by the name of Percival Piggott – good show old boy.


1996 – October 27th    World Cup Qualifier    Est. Rommel Fernández – Panama City, Panama

    The match ended a 0-0 draw, again under Lenarduzzi, and featured in addition to many of those that featured in the previous match, a young Tomasz Radzinski, Ian Fraser, Paul ‘Dollie the Goalie’ Dolan, and Fernando Aguiar.

2000 – July 23rd        World Cup Qualifier    Est. Rommel Fernández – Panama City, Panama

    Another 0-0 draw, this time under Holger Osieck, featuring a host of new names for the Canadian side only months removed from winning the 2000 Gold Cup: Pat Onstad, Paul Fenwick, Tony Menezes, one Mr. Jason deVos, Richard Hastings, Paul Stalteri, Jason Bent, Davide Zausa, Jeff Clarke, and Jim Brennan. On the other side of the ball, a familiar name to any Montreal Impact fans, Roberto Brown.

2000 – October 9th    World Cup Qualifier    Winnipeg Soccer Complex – Winnipeg, MB, Canada

    A 1-0 win for Canada, again under Osieck, on the strength of a Jim Brennan goal in the eighty-first minute.

    New names in the Canadian side include Carl Fletcher, Daniel Imhof, Mark Rogers, Niall Thompson, and one Martin Nash.

2008 – June 4th        International Friendly    Holiday Inn Sunrise – Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

    A friendly match arranged as part of a training camp in preparation for the second round of CONCACAF Qualification for the 2010 World Cup. A 2-2 draw, Canadian goals by Jaime Peters and Ante Jazic bookended a pair of Panamanian strikes – scorers unknown – under the watchful eye of Dale Mitchell.

    Many a new name saw the field for Canada that day: Greg Sutton, Tam Nsaliwa, Adrian Cann, Ali Gerba, Issey Nakajima-Farran, Mike Klukowski, Rob Friend, and Adrian Serioux, as well as several who are in the camp for the upcoming matches: Marcel de Jong, Andre Hainault, Atiba Hutchinson, and Patrice Bernier.

2011 – June 14th    Gold Cup – Group    Livestrong Sporting Park – Kansas City, KS, USA

    That disappointing 1-1 draw in the final group stage match of the most recent Gold Cup that saw Canada knocked out of the tournament under coach Stephen Hart with a squad very similar to the one recently called in.

    Dwayne De Rosario opened the scoring in the sixty-second minute from the penalty spot – his second spot kick of the Cup – sending the keeper, Luis Mejia, diving the wrong way after Eybir Bonaga was judged to have pushed over the Canadian in the box.

     Just when it appeared that Canada was destined to move on, an Eric Davis corner kick in the ninty-first minute struck off the bar and fell to Luis Tejada, whose weak shot squirmed through the arms of Milan Borjan in goal to tie the match at ones.

    Canada was eliminated; while Panama topped the group and went on to beat El Salvador in penalty kicks before falling to the US in the Semifinals.

    Some familiar names from that Panamanian side – and several likely to feature in the upcoming fixtures – include Gabriel Gomez, Blas Perez, Armando Cooper, and Felipe Baloy.

    A quick note on their home ground, the Estadio Rommel Fernández, located in Panama City.

    Opened in February of 1970 and originally known as Estadio Revolución, it was renamed in 1993 in honour of Rommel Fernàndez. A striker nicknamed The Panzer, who played the majority of his career in Spain – with Tenerife, Valencia, and Albacete - from 1987 to 1993, scoring fifty-six goals in one hundred and sixty-two appearances before dying in a car accident at the age of twenty-seven.

    It was completely renovated and modernized in 2009.
