Guimaraes named as Panama coach

PANAMA CITY, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Former Costa Rica coach Alexandre Guimaraes has been named as the new coach of Panama, the national federation said on Wednesday.

A statement on the federation Web site said Brazilian-born Guimaraes, who trained Costa Rica at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, would coach the team in their 2010 World Cup qualifiers.

He replaces former Panama striker Julio Dely Valdes, who local media said would take charge of the under-20 team.

Panama, who have never qualified for the World Cup, finished runners-up to the United States at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2005.

They are at home to Peru in a friendly on Sunday, where the team will be coached on an interim basis by Rene Mendieta.
