Panama Vs. El Salvador, 2011 Gold Cup Quarterfinals: Lineups

After an impressive run through Group C in the 2011 Gold Cup, Panama are favorites to continue on to the semifinals and secure a rematch against the United States. Standing in their way is El Salvador, a team who have always been on the fringes of cracking into the second tier of CONCACAF teams but have never really gotten there. Defeating Panama and getting into the Gold Cup semifinals would certainly be a great start. Here are the lineups.

Panama lineup: Penedo; Baloy, Henriquez, Torres, Machado, Gomes, Barahama, Henriquez, Cooper, Tejada, Ruiz

El Salvador lineup: Montes, Anaya, Purdy, Turcios, Garcia, Hernandez, D. Alas, J. Alas, Quintanilla, Zelaya, Corrales

The striking combination of Tejada and Ruiz has been fantastic all tournament for Panama, and they will probably play a good deal of long balls to those players. The matchup to watch in this one will probably be Panama's defender Baloy against El Salvador's striker Zelaya, as they are arguably the best players on their respective teams. Kickoff is at 6 pm ET.
