The Spanish coach, Vicente Del Bosque, put together a team that includes several players who are in their prime, such as the Barcelona defender Martín Montoya and the Athletic Bilbao forward Markel Susaeta.
Spain plays this Wednesday against Panama in the Rommel Fernandez stadium in the capital of the Central American country. It will be their first game since the 1-1 tie with France broke their remarkable run of 24 consecutive victories.
While in the country, the Iberian team will conduct official visits to the Presidency of the Republic and the Panama Canal locks.
As for the Panamanian team, coached by Julio Dely Valdés, the game represents their initial preparation for the final round of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) tournament, which will begin on February 6 when the Panamanians receive the Costa Rican team.
In addition to the stars Luis Tejada and Blas Pérez, Dely Valdés invited players like Jean Carlos Cedeño, Alberto Quintero and Aníbal Godoy, who play actively in Panamanian soccer clubs.
For the first time in a long time, he also reached out to Rolando Escobar, the player for Anzoátegui from Venezuela, who is the main surprise from trainer Dely Valdés, who hopes to put him in from the start of the game.
