Panama international Henriquez killed in shooting


There is sad news from Panama as national team midfielder Amilcar Henriquez was killed in a drive-by shooting outside his home in the province of Colon, Panama.

Henriquez, 33, played for Arab Unido of the Panamanian League and he also had stops at Independiente Medellin and America de Cali in Colombia, plus many other teams in central and south America.

Affectionately nicknamed ‘Mickey,’ Henriquez was a regular for Los Canaleros in the current CONCACAF 2018 World Cup qualifiers where Panama currently sit in third place in the Hexagonal.

He won 75 caps for Panama and came on as a sub in the USMNT’s 1-1 draw in Panama City in March.
