Goal rates the players in Panama City as El Tri remained unbeaten against the Panamanians.

  • J. Penedo

    J. Penedo

    In a solid game, the goalkeeper made four saves and staked out his area.

  • F. Baloy

    F. Baloy

    As expected, the hulking center back was the leader of the Panamanian back line. The captain had a few moments of forgetfulness but overall did his job.

  • Luis Alfonso Henriquez

    Luis Alfonso Henriquez

    The Panamanian attack accomplished very little. At times Henriquez looked bad.

  • R. Torres

    R. Torres

    Perfectly imposed his style and strength, complimented others well and saved teammates from mistakes.

  • Leonel Parrish

    Leonel Parrish

    He had skill on the ball, but couldn't actualize his ideas in attack.

  • C. Rodríguez

    C. Rodríguez

    Without excelling, Rodriguez did his job earnestly.

  • A. Henríquez

    2.50

    A. Henríquez

    He threw his weight around in central midfield.

  • G. Gómez

    3.00

    G. Gómez

    His recovery speed was effective for Panama's containment efforts, especially against Torrado.

  • M. Sánchez

    2.50

    M. Sánchez

    He went limp on the big occasion.

  • B. Pérez

    2.00

    B. Pérez

    Though he had the game's best chance, a well-worked set piece that Corona somehow saved, Perez had a weak game.

  • L. Tejada
    3
    3
    1.50

    L. Tejada

    Lost and slow, the Toluca striker barely saw the ball in a poor match.

Substitutions

  • Roberto Chen

    Roberto Chen

    There's no doubt which defender suffered the most trying to handle Guardado's lateral runs.

  • R. Escobar

    2.50

    R. Escobar

    Technique and ball control led to a positive overall performance.

  • J. Corona
    30

    3.50

    J. Corona

    Again the best on El Tri, he twice saved the national team from embarrassment.

  • Jose Andrés Guardado

    2.50

    Jose Andrés Guardado

    Following a bright opening hour, the Valencia winger disappeared.

  • Rodríguez
    12
    5
    3.00

    Rodríguez

    Did his job on defense but failed to capitalize on a header in the opposition box.

  • Héctor Moreno
    16

    3.00

    Héctor Moreno

    In a good return, the Espanyol defender kept it safe at the back and isolated Panama's attack.

  • S. Meza
    6
    21
    2.00

    S. Meza

    The right is not a strong position for El Tri, and Meza was the weakest link. Better securing his own half than bombing into the opposition's, the Monterrey man is a drain when Mexico must attack.

  • C. Salcido
    10
    12
    2.50

    C. Salcido

    Offered very little going forward and had doubts when too high up the field.

  • Gerardo Torrado

    20
    2.00

    Gerardo Torrado

    Slow and uncertain, the veteran was overrun in midfield.

  • J. Aquino
    16
    10
    2.50

    J. Aquino

    In an up-and-down match, Aquino managed to carve out Mexico's best chances.

  • J. Zavala
    14
    5
    2.50

    J. Zavala

    He recovered the ball frequently and added muscle to the midfield.

  • Giovani dos Santos
    10
    18
    1.50

    Giovani dos Santos

    Lost, out of rhythm and noncommittal, the Mallorca player was a cartoon version of himself.

  • Javier Hernández

    3.00

    Javier Hernández

    Again the best El Tri can offer: Chicharito has heart and grit, but sometimes that isn't enough.

Substitutions

  • G. Flores
    10
    10
    2.00

    G. Flores

    Tried to command the ball and create when he came on. He's earned the benefit of the doubt in his last three international appearances.

  • Á. Reyna
    3
    16
    2.00

    Á. Reyna

    Came on for Dos Santos, but like his teammate was off pace.

  • A. De Nigris

    12
    2.00

    A. De Nigris

    Came on for the injured Hernandez.
