So Cantave will get his shot to prove a point. I think he was expecting to be called to Herdmans 1st camp in Spain or at least hoped. Immediately after he took the Haiti call for the Argentina friendly. Of course his father is Haitian living in France so his Canada tie isn't as strong as Miki's.
He's played the last 2 matches off the bench. How was he last night? He's still in Spanish 4th tier unless he just changed.
Haiti is just as happy to be facing us as we are to be facing them. We need to be prepared and ready to put them away clinically.
This is even more of a trap than the Jamaica game in 2017. Houston heat and a physical team. They are an average level of a USL team so it could get scrappy.
Im encouraged that we have had success against Caribbean sides exclusively in the past year. Nervous but confident that this group is different and can put this team to bed.
Agree with all this. having fast outside backs will neutralize a big part of their game. Very curious to see if with our strength and composure in the middle we decide to slow the game down or enter into a track meet with them.
Agreed. Haiti found joy out wide. I don't think that happens against Alphonso Davies and whoever plays on the other side, whether it's ZBG or Godinho. The latter concerns me a bit, but I wouldn't be afraid to start him.
I think we can beat them in the middle. That is the great thing about this Canada team. Arfield, Hutchison, Piette, Osorio, Kaye bring a combination of athleticism, composure and passing to play through any press. If we have trouble against Haiti out wide, we may still be able to cut them open through the center.
Not that it will be easy though. Haiti will make us work for everything and they'll feel a real opportunity awaits them. Both of these teams battled for the right to avoid Mexico and play us.
He's barely a college player with 1 season...He was on an upwards trajectory but then made a wrong choice (I don't know which other options there were tough). Zulte is not top-tier but just under that and they have to put some cash down for him. So there's no doubt that he'll get his chances there. I think he'll tear it up. 10-12 goals at bare minimum.
