Appointed in early 2014, Colombian Hernan Dario Gomez has made history by leading Panama to their first FIFA World Cup. El Bolillo (The Truncheon), as he is nicknamed, has previous experience at the global finals, having coached his native Colombia in 1998 and Ecuador at the 2002 edition.
With over a century of appearances for Panama, the well-travelled Perez offers valuable experience to the Central American side. The forward has appeared in four World Cup qualifying campaigns, scoring 11 goals over that period.
