On today's show, we discuss the Panama national team: who will manager Hernan Dario Gomez start and who will he sit? How defensive will they be? What attacking threats do they have at their disposal? Will Jaime Penedo ever not be their goalkeeper?

We then turn our collective attention to Bruce Arena's squad. What formation makes the most sense? What tactical approach best capitalizes on Panama's vulnerabilities? How many goals will Clint Dempsey score using only nastiness/sheer force of will? At least 2 of those questions will be answered.

We also take a quick look at the US U17's as they prepare for the start of the U17 World Cup... and we update the TSS Scouting Network.
