Josiel Nunez has been named to the Panama National Team squad for the side’s two matches in November. The midfielder spent the 2019 USL League One season on loan with Forward Madison FC from C.D. Universitario of Liga Panamena de Futbol.

Nunez made his debut for the Panama National Team in 2014 and has earned 14 caps during his career. The November call-up comes after a successful League One season that saw him make 27 starts for Forward Madison. The 26-year old was an attacking catalyst for the Flamingos in the club’s inaugural season, leading FMFC in chances created (51) and dribbles completed (46) while contributing three goals and four assists.
