Canalero star Blas Perez doesn't make trip

TAGS:  men's national team, world cup 2014


[USA-PANAMA] Panama will be without FC Dallas striker Blas Perez for Tuesday's World Cup 2014 qualifier against the United States. The Canaleros' leading scorer with 10 goals in 14 World Cup 2014 qualifiers was not on Panama's flight that arrived Sunday morning in Seattle after suffering from gastroenteritis.

Perez, who has 29 goals for Panama, started Friday night in the 0-0 tie with Mexico. He is the only player who will be missing on Tuesday. None of the nine Canaleros carrying cards into the Mexico game were carded.

Perez was the only MLS player in the Panama team, though three former MLS players started against Mexico: left back Carlos Rodriguez (who played on loan with FC Dallas) and midfielders Marcos Sanchez (recently released by D.C. United) and Gabriel Gomez (ex-Philadelphia Union now at Atletico Junior in Colombia).
