Minister Charles invited them to show unity, solidarity, courage and a better image of Haiti by performing brilliant performances against their future adversaries "As courageous ambassadors you have shown your courage and your commitment by placing Haiti among the 24 best football teams in the world in your category. The country is proud of you and expects the best of you during this final World Cup stage."
Let's recall that Haiti is in Group C alongside dangerous opponents : the Republic of South Korea, France and Chile...
Tuesday the Haitian delegation (the team and a part of the technical staff) left the country aboard an American Airlines flight with stop to Miami and continued the same evening for Sao Paulo that it will reach the next day October 16th at 6:00 am before going to Goiânia.
For this trip, the airline tickets have been paid by FIFA-VOYAGE and the Haitian Football Federation, hoping that the Haitian State will help as promised by Prime Minister ai Jean Michel Lapin to pay hotel fees, food, internal displacement, travel costs of sports equipment and other high expenses involved in attending such a big event.
Calendar of matches at «Estádio da Serrinha» in Goiânia (Brazil) :
Haiti - Republic of South Korea (Stade da Serrinha, Goiania) :
On October 27, 2019, in the opening game, our young Grenadiers will face the "Asian Tigers" of the Republic of Korea whose players were particularly effective during the group stage by scoring 12 goals in the group stage without cash in none and they added two more to become the most successful team on the Asian continent.
Haiti - Chile (Stade da Serrinha, Goiania) :
For their second game, Oct. 30, 2019 our Grenadiers U-17 will face the "Red" of Chile who have fetched their ticket on the lawn of the Stadium of the "Universidad National Mayor De San Marcos", in Lima (Peru). After a failed start to the campaign, Hernan Caputto protégés were back in the saddle and at the end of a final sprint that led them to the top of South America alongside the sacred Argentina in favor of a better goal difference, they want to prove to the rest of the world that they can do even better on the occasion of their fifth participation in this competition and their 3rd consecutive.
Haiti - France (Stade da Serrinha, Goiania):
The last match will see our Grenadiers face "Les Bleuets", the first European team qualified for Brazil 2019 after having notably dominated a group composed of Sweden, England (Champion in title but not qualified) and the Netherlands future winners of the UEFA championship of the category. "Les Bleuets" literally corrected the Czech Republic [6-1] in the quarter-finals with a Adil Aouchiche on fire from the top of his 4 goals scored that day. But this is unfortunately not enough for our Grenadiers who will have to monitor PSG midfielder very closely, who set a new record at Euro-17 by shaking the net 9 times.
