HistoryEdit

2000sEdit

In 2002 Panama qualified for the CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup for the first time after securing one of two spots in Central American Zone qualifying. They went 1–0–2 at the 2002 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup and did not qualify for the knockout round.[2]

Panama once again qualified for the Women's Gold Cup in 2006 after winning their qualifying group. Panama lost their first round match 2–1 to Jamaica and were eliminated.[3]

2010sEdit

Panama did not participate in the 2010 CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifying tournament as they did not enter Central American qualifying.[4]

In 2013 Panama participated in the Central American Games for the first time. They went 1–0–1 and advanced to the semi-finals, where they lost to Costa Rica. Panama would finish in fourth place after losing the third place match to Guatemala.[4]

Panama finished second in their group in 2014 Central American Qualifying and did not qualify for the 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship as only the group winner advanced.[5]

At the 2017 Central American Games, Panama improved on their result from four ago by defeating El Salvador on penalties to finish in third place.[4]

Panama secured one of the two spots available in Central American Qualifying for the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship, this marked their first time playing in the CONCACAF Championship in 12 years.[6] Panama was drawn into Group A, alongside the United States, Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago.[7]

Panama opened the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship with a 3–0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago. They suffered a 5–0 loss to the United States in their second match. The score could have been much worse if not for the excellent performance from 17-year old goalkeeper Yenith Bailey, as she made several big saves against the US who had 18 shots on goal.[8] Panama secured their spot in the semi-final by defeating Mexico 2–0 in their final group match. Bailey once again made some big saves, including saving a penalty in the first half. Panama was beat by Canada 7–0 in the semi-final, but they would move on to the third place match where a win would secure them a spot in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.[9][10] After losing the third place match to Jamaica on penalties, Panama will now play against Argentina at the CONCACAF-CONMEBOL play-off to secure a spot for France 2019.
