Haiti - France 2018 U-20 : End of the dream for our Grenadières
Thursday, as part of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup France 2018, our Grenadières for their second pool match was back in Saint-Malo on the lawn of Marville Stadium with the intention to win the victory, after their defeat of tournament entry against the People's Republic of China [1-2] in Group D, but for that our Grenadières had to defeat the solid Super Falcons of Nigeria...

In the obligation to win after their setback against Germany [0-1] the Super Falcons quickly took their responsibilities and control of the match in the first half hour where opportunities were lacking for the two teams. It was not until a penalty converted by Rasheedat Ajibade from 11 meters to the 36' that opened the score for Nigeria [1-0], to see our Grenadières come alive. Our valiant Grenadières refusing fatality without fighting, after having waited in their camp the Nigerians, took the initiative with a counter-attack concluded on the pole by our star Nerilia Mondesir aka "Nerigol".

In the second half, returning from the locker room, same scenario, our Grenadières showed their character, they were more enterprising and offensive but clumsy in front of Nigerian wait-and-see faces duo of shock "Nerigol" - "Corventina" (the pearl capoise Melchie Daelle Dumornay)

The intentions of our players were good, but the gloves of the goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie in the Super Falcons net remained impassable. Despite several changes made in the Haitian selection by coach Marc Collat, he failed to counter the physical superiority of Nigeria and lead Haiti to victory.

The final whistle was greeted with disappointment by the Haitian fans who came in large numbers and the frustration of our Grenadiers who dreamed of going to the group stage and to reach the 1/4 finals, but with this defeat "at a minimum" [ 1-0], she is 4th in the Group D standings and eliminated from this World Cup.
