Fidel Escobar is one of the crop of young players charged with taking over the mantle in the Panama national team now that the side’s more experienced figures are reaching the end of their careers. A slightly-built defender, Escobar also has the ability to get forward at regular intervals.

Despite his position at the back, he was among the nominees for Goal of the Tournament at the FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015. Escobar featured in nine matches during 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying and netted the crucial winner away to Honduras on 11 November 2016.
