In helping Panama reach the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, Felipe Baloy was rewarded for a career dedicated to football and his national team. He has donned his boots for clubs in Colombia and Brazil but enjoyed his greatest success in Mexico, where he won two league titles with different teams. Although he is an uncompromising defender, Baloy is not afraid to drive forward from the back or play long balls into attack.
'Pipe' earned his first cap for _Los Canaleros _in 2001 and played in the qualifying campaigns for Germany 2006, South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014. A veteran with over 100 international appearances, he has also captained the side on numerous occasions.
