Haiti -Football : The U-17 men's team leaves the playoffs due to illness... (UPDATE 1h12pm)
The Haitian Football Federation (FHF) has informed Tuesday night, the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) that it is no longer able to maintain are Men's team under 17, for the playoff of the U17 World Cup of Montego Bay (Jamaica), because of an illness that struck members of his delegation.

Haiti, which had lost its first match of the tournament Monday against Costa Rica (1-3) was scheduled to face El Salvador this Wednesday. Due to the withdrawal of Haiti, El Salvador is awarded of a victory 3-0. This match should be the first of 2 consecutive match. Because of the cancellation, the scheduled of 4h30pm for the match between the Panama and Cuba has been changed to 4pm.

The team will return to Haiti as soon as possible. We will avoid any speculation about the origin of this disease. While waiting the details of the FHF, we wish them a speedy recovery.

Update 1h12pm - FHF statement
It is with sadness and frustration that we are letting our fans know that the U17 national team has been forced out the World cup Qualification by the Jamaican Government. Two of our players are infected with malaria, yet this disease cannot be spread by human contact.

This frustration comes due to a lack of respect towards our ambassadors. Our players are isolated, close in rooms guarded by soldiers, no access to outside communication, food nor water.

As of this moment, we are still not allowed to leave by commercial plane and are waiting for a charter flight to Haiti.
