On Monday, 24 hours before their 2018 World Cup Qualifying match against Panama, the U.S. Men’s National Team went through their final preparations inside Estadio Rommel Fernández in Panama City.
Built in 1970, the stadium was originally named Estadio Revolución but the name was changed in 1993 in honor of Rommel Fernandez, a Panamanian footballer that tragically died in a car accident in Spain in May of that year.
Remodeled in 2009 and now with more than 30,000 seats, the stadium is the largest in Panama and will undoubtedly be packed to the brim on Tuesday night.
