Saransk, Russia: Panama's defender Luis Ovalle on Thursday said that Panama is ready to go through their second 2018 FIFA World Cup clash with England.

CD Olimpia left-back said that Panama showed good performance in its 2018 World Cup debut against Belgium, which ended with Belgium's victory 3-0.

"Being our first World Cup makes it normal (for England) to see us in a certain way. But on the pitch millions do not play; we are 11 against 11 and everything is possible," Ovalle said in a press conference ahead of England's clash set for next Sunday.

"We are ready and keen on playing like everybody else. We are going to give our best in the match against England," he added.

Belgium and England lead Group G with three points each, while Tunisia and Panama have zero points so far.
