Haiti - Curacao : Draw [1-1], the Grenadiers no longer have the right to make a mistake
Tuesday at the Sylvio Cator stadium, as part of the second day of the League of Nations of the Confederation of North America, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF), Haiti in Group D of League A, (83rd in the FIFA world rankings) faced a national selection of Curacao (79th).

After their defeat in the first leg at Willemstad [0-1] https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-28696-icihaiti-league-of-nations-the-grenadiers-bow-%5b1-0%5d-face-curacao.html , one expected a nice revenge from our Grenadiers who have had despite their efforts, settle for a draw [1-1], offering the Group's lead to Curacao with 4 out of 6 points and content with second place with 1 point (Costa Rica in Group D having not played any match on the remaining 4, 2 against Haiti and 2 against Curacao).

Everything seemed to have started well for our Grenadiers, Frantzdy Pierrot on a cross from the back left side, Alex Junior Christian opened the scoring for Haiti at 15' [1-0].

However, against disciplined curaçaol and a drop in intensity in the Haitian game, Elson Hooi facing a haunting Haitian defense scored the goal of equalization at 41' [1-1]. Note that in addition to these two goals, the first period was marked by the injury of Stéphane Lambese (US Orleans, France) who was replaced by Djimy Bend Alexis (AS Capoise / Haiti)

At the return of the locker room, Ricardo Adé (Deportes Magallanes / Chile) is expelled by the referee at 47' for an intervention deemed dangerous. In order to rebalance Haitian defense Mac Collat ​​brings out formard Duckens Nazon Duckens Nazon (St Mirren / Scotland) to bring in forward Andrew Jean-Baptiste (Umeå FC / Sweden)

Outnumbered the Grenadiers have had many opportunities but have failed to materialize any face the strong defense of Curaçaolais who dominated this game (54% possession of the ball, 11 shots including 5 shots and 368 passes), until at the end of the regulation time on the draw [1-1].

With this poor performance, our Grenadiers are no longer entitled to the error and must absolutely win the victory against Costa Rica (44th) that they will face in a first leg in port-au-Prince on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at Port-au-Prince, for the first match Haiti vs Costa Rica. In case of defeat Haiti could be relegated to League B next year and miss the opportunity to play the Gold Cup 2021, because it will be the first two in each group that will compete in this competition, moreover, it may not be found in the TOP 6 participants of the hexagonal tournament counting for qualification for the FIFA World Cup, Qatar 2022.
