    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Under the watchful eye of Hernan Dario Gomez, Panama opened Tuesday its first training camp since the 58-year-old Colombian replaced Julio Dely Valdes as head coach in February.

    The Canaleros gathered at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City to prepare for friendlies against Serbia (May 31, in Bridgeview, Illinois, USA) and at World Cup host Brazil (June 3, in Goiania).

    Panama is winless in its last five games, including a 1-0 loss to the United States in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup final, and finished fifth out of six teams in the Hexagonal round of World Cup Qualifying.

    The foreign-based trio of Luis Tejada, Harold Cummings and Robert Chen is expected to join the squad on Wednesday, while Armando Cooper and Gabriel Torres will link up later.
