GlobeBull: Michael Murrillo Called to Panama Squad for Brazil Friendly

Panama named New York Red Bulls defender, Michael Murrillo, to their 18-man squad for their friendly against Brazil on March 23rd. Three of the 18 are from MLS, including Murrillo and San Jose Earthquakes teammates Harold Cummings and Aníbal Godoy.

Murrillo has earned 29 caps with Los Canaleros since making his debut in March 2016. His two international goals came in separate matches against Martinique. The first was a friendly in April 2016. The latter was during the 2017 Gold Cup. He was not in the squad for the team’s most recent match, a 3-0 loss to the United States back in January.

The match against Brazil will take place at Estádio do Dragão in Portugal, the home of FC Porto. This will be Panama’s only match of the window, but Brazil will follow up it up with a friendly against the Czech Republic in Prague.

Murrillo’s involvement in the squad means he will miss RBNY’s match against Orlando, but be back in time to take on the Chicago Fire.
