Tejada Scores in International Debut

July 19, 2019 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Tampa Bay Rowdies News Release

PANAMA CITY, Panama - Tampa Bay Rowdies forward Juan Tejada continued his incredible year with a goal in his international debut for Panama last night in Olympic qualifying.

Tejada, 22, signed his first professional contract this winter after impressing in a preseason trial. He earned a surprise start on opening day and has been a fixture in Neill Collins' lineup this season with seven goals, second-best on the team.

That form continued Wednesday night in his debut with Panama's U22 side, which drew 1-1 with El Salvador in the first leg of a tie against El Salvador. Tejada played the full 90 minutes and put his country in front in the 27th minute.

Panama will meet El Salvador on Sunday in the second leg.
