The Panama national football team represents Panama in international football. The team is controlled by the governing body for football in Panama, Panamanian Football Federation, which is a member of CONCACAF and the regional UNCAF. Panama finished as runners-up in the 2005 Gold Cup and 2013 Gold Cup. Panama reached the fourth round for the 2006 World Cup CONCACAF qualifications.


The first Panama national football team was constituted in 1937.

At their fourth round qualification match for the 2014 FIFA World Cup against the USA at Estadio Rommel Fernández in Panama City, they were about 90 seconds away from beating the US and advancing to play-offs against New Zealand, but they were eventually out of the spot by conceding twice in stoppage time.
