Starting 7 :
#1 John Baby Jean
#5 Osias Manley
#4 John Anthony
#8 Baltazar Mykender
#7 Spinoza John
#10 Saviola Charles
#9 Redondo Richard aka "El Principe"
Our Grenadiers got into the game well despite a goal conceded at 10' [1-0] quickly equalized at 17' by Savi̇ola Charles [1-1] then increased by a shot from Spi̇noza John at 24' giving an advantage of short duration to Haiti [1-2], the "Black Antelopes" equalizing at 25' [2-2]
On returning from the locker room, the Angolan World Champion in 2018 dominated our Grenadiers who despite their efforts had to undergo the rhythm of the "Black Antelopes" without ever admitting defeat. However, in this high intensity match, they never managed to recover the score, conceding 2 additional goals to finish after a tense match with the score of [4-2] in favor of Angola.
Our national team suffered its first defeat in 6 games, eliminated Haiti will not go to the grand final and will have to console themselves by playing the small final on Sunday October 9, in search of 3rd place in this 2022 World Championship, against the 'Uzbekistan, a tough opponent (which lost 0-1 against Turkey).
Note that Redondo Richard aka "El Principe" (8 goals) and Saviola Charles (8 goals) are in the running for the top scorer trophy of this World Cup.

Learn more about amputee football:
Football for amputee players follows specific rules, like any discipline adapted to a disability. The game takes place on a field of 60 meters by 40 (maximum 70 m X 60) or a classic football half-field. It has two goal cages with a maximum height of 2.2m, a width of 5m x 1m (depth) and a FIFA standard ball
The match is played in 2 periods of 25 minutes with a half-time of about ten minutes. A timeout of two minutes is authorized per team and per match. The team is made up of 7 players (6 outfield players, a goalkeeper) and substitutes.
Outfield players (excluding goalkeepers) must have a lower limb amputated. The goalkeeper must have an upper limb amputated, so a hand.
Players cannot use their crutches and stump to handle the ball. If this happens, it's considered a "hand" unless it's unintentional.
In addition, the use of the crutch against a player results in exclusion and a penalty.
Finally, offside does not exist in disabled football.
