Returning after missing the past two championships, Panama qualified by winning its three-team Central American group over Nicaragua and El Salvador before it was selected as host of the CONCACAF U-20 Women's Championship. The team includes 11 members of the 2010 team that went to the CONCACAF U-17 Women's Championship, including forwards Marta Cox and Angela Evans. The two accounted for all five of Panama's goals in two qualifying matches. Panama has only one win in three previous trips to the CONCACAF finals, in 2004. It has been outscored 38-8 in nine matches previously at the confederation finals, including 19-1 in its last outing, 2006.
