ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – Carlos Small and Ronaldo Dinolis scored two goals each as Panama earned a 5-0 win over host Grenada in an international friendly Tuesday at Kirani James Athletics Stadium.
Head coach Hernan Dario Gomez’s side -- comprised completely of players from the Liga Panameña de Fútbol – played its first game since October 17, when it defeated Costa Rica, 2-1, to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
12’: Carlos Small, who scored four goals in the 2017 Scotiabank CONCACAF League for Arabe Unido, ran through the Grenadian central defense to first-time a through ball with his left foot from 11-yards out.
21’: Alfredo Stephens glanced a header off the right post and into the net off a nicely conceived corner from the left.
32’: In a play that started with Panama dispossessing a Grenadian defender, Carlos Small ultimately tapped home from the top of the six-yard box.
54’: Sporting San Miguelito’s Ronaldo Dinolis, the 2017 Panamanian Apertura’s top scorer with 10 goals, used his left to place a shot from 14 yards inside the post.
68’: Ronaldo Dinolis slotted in calmly with his right foot from eight-yards.
