Former Millwall coach behind Panama success

21 June 2018

Whilst the country will be supporting Gareth Southgate's England team this Sunday as they take on Panama in the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a small part of Millwall will be present in the opposition.

For the first time in its history, Panama are playing in the world's biggest tournament. This achievement is in great part due to what former Millwall Community Trust coach Gary Stempel has done over the past 20 years with both the Panamanian national teams at all age levels and within the Panamanian domestic League.

The Guardian's Sid Lowe travelled to Panama to investigate how their national team has used these lessons and what Gary is doing to help those on the fringes of society.
