The Panamanian goalkeeper Yenith Bailey won, thanks to her providential saves, the Golden Glove for the best goalkeeper of the Women's Soccer World Cup Tournament that took place in Frisco, Texas.

Bailey, in the games in which she started, did not allow goals and shone on the occasions when it was most demanded by her rivals.

That led Panama to reach the semifinals, after her goal was untouched by Mexico or Trinidad and Tobago, but then the United States managed to score five goals against 12 saves, which is a sample of the flood that came over the Panamanian team in that match against the hosts.

She did not play in the semifinals against Canada, and Panama ended up losing by 7-0, to close her performance against Jamaica for third place with two goals accepted, plus penalties that determined the fall of the “canaleras”.

But that did not stop there, since that fourth place allows the Panamanian team to stay alive for the World Cup in the category, as it can play a spot in the playoff against the Argentine national team with round-trip matches the next month of November.

Undoubtedly, goalkeeper Bailey will be one of the players called to dispute those meetings that could put the country in a new World Cup.
