Panama squad 'trigger a row'

By RAMI HULAYYEL

THE Bahrain Football Association (BFA) is to probe the 'status' of the Panama team which lost 5-0 to Bahrain in a friendly clash on Thursday at the National Stadium.

The match was part of Bahrain's preparations for the World Cup playoffs against Trinidad and Tobago scheduled for November 12 and 16.

Panama had signed an agreement with the BFA in which it was clearly stated (clause Four) that a "team of at least 16 players, the majority of which participated in the Concacaf qualifiers for the 2006 World Cup" will play in the Bahrain friendly.

But the Panama team which eventually played against Bahrain is reported to be a youth side by a local Arabic newspaper.

"We are still unsure about the status of the Panama team which played against Bahrain in the friendly match - whether it is same one which played in the Concacaf qualifiers or a team with new players added after Panama lost all chances of qualifying for the 2006 World Cup," said BFA general secretary Ahmed Jassim.

Jassim, however, refused to confirm or deny if Panama came to Bahrain with its reserve team.

Bahrain paid $140,000, apart from paying for their air tickets and accommodation, to the Panama Football Association for a friendly match; $70,000 was paid while signing the contract and the remaining before the start of the match.

"Panama's Football Association was represented by its president Ariel Alvarado who signed the contract in presence of Fifa's licensed agent Ramy Abbas," said Jassim. Sponsored by Batelco, Bahrain played the match without their 11 professionals who are playing in Qatari and Kuwaiti leagues.

Defender Abdulla Al Marzooqi and midfielder Rashid Al Dossary were the only two first team regulars in the squad.

The professional include nine in Qatar - Hussain Ali, Ala'a Hubail, Mohammed Salmeen, Salman Isa, Sayed Mohammed Adnan, Mohammed Juma, Mohammed Hubail, Mahmood Jalal, Daij Nasser - and two in Kuwait - Talal Yousef and Hussain Baba.

Bahrain goals were scored by striker Abdulla Al Dikheel, defenders Ahmed Al Hujairi and Al Marzooqi and substitute midfielders Mahmood Abbas and Abdulrahman Mubarak.

That Panama squad wasn't as bad as the one they sent.   I think Sedley Joseph and they said that that was a team that proved to problematic against Costa Rica in the first stage of the qualifiers for Italia '90.  What they sent to Bahrain was a school boy team.
