Haiti - Gold Cup 2017 : Grenadiers win against Suriname [4-2]
Charles Hérold Junior opened the scoring for Haiti at the 25' [1-0]. Andrew Jean Baptiste scored his first goal with the national team at 42'(2-0). It was on this score that ended the first period, dominated by the Haitians.
At the return of the locker room, our national team continued the same pressing, forcing the Surinamese to play from time to time back and it was on one of their attempt that Jonel Désiré was able to seize the ball and score in the 48' the 3rd goal for Haiti [3-0].
Jean Claude Josaphat (coach) decides to make changes, Derrick Etienne leaves his place to Romilaire Ambroise, the player of Real Hope Academy, very technical, unknown to the public, distinguished himself and proves once again that he is the True Haitian revelation in Trinidad; In a perfectly successful one-two, he allowed Alex Christian Junior to center and push the Surinamese central defender Guillermo Faeber to score in the 80' against his camp the Score is then [4-0] in favor of Haiti.
Everything went perfectly well for the Grenadiers if, too confident of their superiority, they had not lowered the guard, underestimating the surinamiens who twice reduced the score at the end of the match : first by Dimitrie Apai, the W. Connection striker (D1 Trinidad) with a 25-meter strike, deceived Guerry Romondt until then quiet with the safety imposed by Andrew and the Captain Mechack [4-1] and subsequently during stoppages (90+1) Sergino Eduard took advantage of a hand fault of the last Haitian rampart to make blush one again the grenadiers [4-2] who did not digest these two goals at the end of the game that count and which may have consequences in the final classification of the triangular. One let go that did not appreciate at all Josaphat.
The triangular ends with the match Trinidad-Haiti this Sunday, January 8, 2017, another January 8 which recalls Panama in 2016 and the victory [1-0] but above all the Haitian qualification at the expense of the Trinidadians, who risks of being revanchist while Haitians believe in repetitive history.
