Sunday, June 16, the Gombey Warriors (Bermuda), qualified for the first time at this 25th edition of the Gold Cup and 174th in the FIFA World Ranking, surprised our Grenadiers on the lawn of "Estadio Nacional de Costa-Rica" taking the advantage in the first half wit a head of Dante Leverock on a corner at 45' + 1 [1-0].

Yves Jean Bart aka "Dadou", the President of the Haitian Football Federation (FHF) had yet warned on May 24 "an opponent apparently within reach but we must still be wary."

A first period whose first minutes had started well for our Grenadiers, with a lot of envy and fighting, before the loss of their defender Meschack Jerome on injury at the 8'. Subsequently, following a confused game, deficiencies in defense, our Grenadiers were dominated by Gombey Warriors who have increased attacks. Showing themselves clumsy, our Grenadiers conceded at the end of the first period a goal in favor of Bermuda [0-1].

At the return of the locker room, our Grenadiers showed a completely different, on a very fast pace, the Warriors were overwhelmed by the events. Frantzdy Pierrot (Royal Excel Mouscron / Belgium) found the equalizer on a free kick by Steven Saba at 54' [1-1].

12 minutes later, taking advantage of a shot by Duckens Nazon, Frantzdy Pierrot on a shot from right foot straight into the goal at 66' gives the advantage to Haiti [2-1] (its doubled).

Despite some attempts, the Gombey Warriors have not been able to change this score within play time.

With these 3 points, Haiti takes the 2nd place of Group B behind Costa Rica which crushed Nicaragua [4-0]
