In yesterday’s CONCACAF Nations League face off against Bermuda, Panama national team manager Américo Gallego suffered a collision with opposition player Willie Clemons in the sidelines at the Bermuda National Stadium.
The 64 year old Argentine was present at the sidelines when Clemons, the Bodens BK central midfielder ran into him, as both fell down just before other players were seen to assist them.

The 4-1 victory was Gallego’s debut match as Los Canaleros gaffer, the former Argentina international who managed clubs such as River Plate, Independiente, Tigres UANL andColo-Colo.
Panama forward Gabriel Torres scored a brace in the 31st and 66th minute, in addition to fellow striker Rolando Blackburn netting one at the end of the first half. The final goal came in the 93rd minute from Adalberto Carrasquilla, who shot the ball in an open goal as the Bermuda keeper Dale Eve went up the field.
Bermuda only had one satisfactory goal, and that also came in the form of an own goal, as a rebound ball coming back from the crossbar hit Panama defender Harold Cummings and went into the net, fooling their shot stopper José Calderón.
Panama and Bermuda are in group B of the Nations League A, the top division of the Nations League. Gallego’s side are currently topping the group with 3 points, and will face Bermuda again this Monday at their home ground of Estadio Rommel Fernández Gutiérrez.
