Panama, the surprise runner-up at the 2005 Gold Cup, has called up Colorado Rapids striker Roberto Brown for the 2007 Gold Cup.

Brown, who played on the 2005 team, was one of nine foreign-based players called up by Coach Alexandre Guimaraes. The other forwards all play abroad: Jose Luis Garces of Portugal's Belenenses, Nicolas Munoz, the leading scorer in the Salvadoran First Division for Aguila, and Blas Perez, the top scorer for Colombian champion Cucuta in the 2007 Libertadores Cup. Also picked was Victor Piggot of the USL-1's Puerto Rico Islanders.

"We want to get to the final," said Guimaraes, who coached Costa Rica at the 2002 and 2006 World Cup. "Any team which takes part wants to win the competition. We are well aware of what the Gold Cup means for Panama."

Panama faces Honduras, Mexico and Cuba in the first round.

PANAMA ROSTER:
Goalkeepers: Jose Calderon (Chepo FC), Oscar McFarlane (Tauro FC), Jaime Penedo (Osasuna/Spain).
Defenders: Reynaldo Anderson (Arabe Unido), Felipe Baloy (Club America/Mexico), Luis Moreno (Tauro FC), Carlos Rivera (Tauro FC), Joel Solanilla (Plaza Amador), Roman Torres (La Equidad).
Midfielders: Alberto Blanco (Plaza Amador), Rolando Escobar (Tauro FC), Gabriel Gomez (Santa Fe/Colombia), Luis Henriquez (Tauro FC), Amilcar Henriquez (Arabe Unido), Engin Mitre (Plaza Amador), Juan Perez (Tauro FC), Ricardo Phillips (San Francisco), Victor Piggot (Islanders/Puerto Rico), Juan Ramon Solis (Aguila/El Salvador).
Forwards: Roberto Brown (Colorado Rapids/USA), Jose Luis Garces (Belenenses/Portugal), Nicolas Munoz (Aguila/El Salvador), Blas Perez (Cucuta/Colombia).
