Panama Hold Belgium Goalless At Halftime


SOCHI, Russia – Goalkeeper Jaime Penedo was keeping World Cup debutants Panama level with Group G favorites Belgium in a scoreless first half in Sochi on Monday.

The Belgians had the best chances but Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku could not find a way through the Panama defense, with Penedo showing good reflexes to deny them in their country’s first appearance at the World Cup finals.
