The likes of Miguel Camargo, Hecgar Murillo and Martin Gomez all received call-ups for the friendly against Venezuela, while the likes of Blas Perez, Anibal Godoy, Alberto Quintero and Gabriell Torres all miss Wednesday’s match. The quarter, though, will represent Panama en Copa America Centenario. Ismael Diaz of Porto has been recalled to the squad. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Luis Tejada, who has netted 33 goals for the national team so far.
Yefferson Soteldo, Jefre Vargas, Ruberth Quijada, Carlos Cermeno, Jhon Murillo, Ronald Vargas, Cesar Gonzalez, Gelmin Rivas and Andre Tunez have been left out of the squad. Romulo Otero scored a late equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Galicia and he is likely to start the match. The likes of Salomon Rondon, Juanpi Anor and Alberto Penaranda were all rested against Galicia, but they could play some part in Wednesday’s game against Panama. Rolf Feltscher returns to the national team after a two-year absence.

Panama vs Venezuela Prediction
Venezuela failed to beat Panama in previous eight meetings between the two teams and they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. Los Llaneros experienced all sorts of problems in the 1-1 draw with Galicia at the weekend, but it has to be noted that coach Noel Sanvincente mixed the squad against los Gallegos. Panama and Venezuela seem to be evenly matched at the moment and a close encounter appears on the cards.
