Haiti - Football : Women's Cup U-20, our Grenadières in St Kitts
Apart from our star Nerilia Mondésir who arrives on Tuesday at 4:00, the group is in full force and trained Monday evening on a very damaged ground of Basse Terre, capital of St Kitts under the orders of Fiorda Charles and Hubert Anglade.
Coach Marc Collat complaining of the lamentable state of the field, but the girls have trained well while avoiding the risk of injury as much as possible.
First of all to qualify and do everything to maintain the title is the objective of our National Selection despite the handicap of several absences of weight (Melissa Dacius, Mikerline St Felix, Sarafina Joseph, Daphnee Auguste, Naphtaline Clermeus) for various reasons, injuries first and foremost, forcing coaches to draw heavily on the nursery of the U-17s, recent champions of the Caribbean.
The only drawback is the absence since the July tournament of preparation matches due to lack of financial resources. Moreover without the help of FIFA who decided to support the air tickets, the situation would have been more critical for our Grenadiers at this competition.
