-A national holiday has been declared by the President of Panama today after the country qualified for the World Cup for the first time ever. Juan Carlos Varelaā€¸ said on Twitter: "The voice of the people has been heard... Tomorrow will be a national holiday."The national team beat Costa Rica 2-1 in Panama City on Tuesday evening. The president said public and private workers could take the day off, and school classes would also be cancelled. In a series of excited tweets, he shared a picture of himself signing the degree, adding "You deserve it".Panamanians celebrated long into the night after the victory. However, there has been some dispute over whether the team's first goal crossed the line. Panama has tried to qualify for every football World Cup since 1978, but it has never been successful until now.
