    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Leonardo Pipino has stepped down as head coach of the Panama under-20 national team, the Federación Panameña de Fútbol announced Thursday.

    The Canaleros are in Colombia preparing for the 2017 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, which starts on February 17 in Costa Rica.

    Nelson Gallego and Edgar Carvajal, assistants with the senior squad, have been put in charge of the side as it bids to earn a berth in the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

    Pipino, a 39-year-old Argentinean, had guided Panama to a place in the 2015 U-20 World Cup after a runner-up finish in the 2015 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship.
