Haiti - Gold Cup 2023 : Haiti loses against Mexico [1-3] (Video)
In the first period our Grenadiers resisted well against the dominating Mexicans and gave favorite, leaving them little opportunity, applying the tactics of the Hispano-Aregntine Argentinian coach Gabriel Calderón Pellegrino https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-39439-haiti-football-new-national-coach-ai-for-the-grenadiers.html
The first period ended in a draw [0-0].
Back from the locker room, the Brazilians opened the scoring at 46' on a header from Henry Martin [0-1]. 10 minutes later Ricardo Adé, the captain of the Grenadiers on a cross from the Mexican attack, sent the ball into his own net [0-2].
Far from being discouraged, our Grenadiers again attack a formidable but not invincible adversary. On a corner, shot by Derrick Étienne Danley Jean-Jacque proves it, by reducing the score by a head at 78' [1-2]. Many people still hope that equality and victory are still possible.
Unfortunately Santiago Giminéez at 83' sinks the score in favor of Mexico [1-3], score which will remain unchanged until the end of regulation time.
A match where Mexico had 65% possession of the ball and scored 3 goals on 10 shots on target in the 32 shots attempted. Haiti for its part scored 1 goal on 2 shots on target in the 6 shots attempted.
