Okay, what do we know about Guadelope?

Recommended Posts

From what I've seen, they're a very skilled but somewhat lacksidasical (sp?) team. Against

Haiti, the goal against them was a PK due to a very poor challenge by the defender. But their

reply goal was of the highlight variety.

Canada cannot just underestimate a team filled with players that ply their trade in

France & Belgium (Moulien, Reims, Tours, Nantes,etc.), Netherlands (Utrecht) and England

(Sheffield United). French internationals from Guadeloupe are Chimbonda, Thuram, Wiltord,

Gallas, and Silvestre. So the pedigree is there.

If we put the same effort as in the CRC game, we should come out on top.

Guadeloupe national football team


The Guadeloupe national football team is in fact the regional team of French Overseas Departement Guadeloupe and is controlled by the Ligue Guadeloupéenne de Football, local branch of Federation Francaise de Football. As part of French Republic, Guadeloupe is not a member of FIFA, and is therefore not eligible to enter the World Cup, but they do compete in CONCACAF competitions.

Recent Events

By reaching the semi-finals of the Caribbean Nations Cup 2007, the team qualified for their first ever Gold Cup.

Guadeloupe players very much in evidence at the World Cup

Monday, June 12, 2006

by Danik Ibrahim Zandronis

Caribbean Net News Guadeloupe Correspondent

Email: danik@caribbeannetnews.com


BASSE-TERRE, Guadeloupe: The French national football team, also known as “Les Bleus (The Blues)” is largely made up of native Guadeloupean players.

Thierry Henry, Arsenal’s top scorer, is considered as one the most dangerous strikers in the world. Henry’s family is from the small Guadeloupean island of La Desirade.

Lilian Thuram (Juventus) is also Guadeloupean-born and, though a defensive player, scored twice, in 1998, when France became world champions. With Mickael Sylvestre (Manchester), William Gallas (Chelsea), and Pascal Chimbonda, they are considered as the “black guard” of the French team. The sixth one is Louis Saha (Manchester).

So, 50 per cent of the French national team on the field could be from Guadeloupe. That’s why this year, more than ever, Guadeloupeans are very interested in this World Cup. Some of them really think that, without these French West-Indian players, “Les Bleus” could never be at that level in such a competition.

On Tuesday, when France faces Switzerland, the whole of Guadeloupe will be watching their television screens to support what they consider to be “their” team. During the match at 10 am (local time), the daily activities of many businesses will slow down.

Most Guadeloupeans are usually fans of the Brazilian football team but this year is unusual because Guadeloupean football fans are divided into several groups: one for the French team and others for the Brazilian or Trinidadian teams.

In 1998, when France won the World Cup for the first time in its history, after the tremendous final match against Ronaldo’s Brazil, many Guadeloupeans both felt happy and unhappy.

Eight years later, the situation is quite different: in the streets of Basse-Terre and Pointe-à-Pitre, the two main cities of Guadeloupe, football is a frequent topic. In shops, it’s not easy to find television sets to buy. But nobody is betting on a new French victory.

Thanks for the link, Georg. I see that in recent years they have not played France or any other major footballing country. Understandable.

This year Guadeloupe played 10 international matches, of which they won 4, lost 4, tied 2. They scored 14 goals (1.4 per game) and allowed 17 (1.7 per game). Respectable.

Five of those games were in Caribbean Cup competition. They exchanged wins with Cuba in two games. Lost one, won one, against Haiti. And lost to Guyana in a high-scoring result (3-4) early in the tournament. They were semi-finalists along with Cuba, and Trinidad and Tobago, and Haiti -- against whom Guadeloupe lost (0-3). Haiti won the Cup.

In warm-up friendlies (all at home), Guadeloupe won one, tied one, against Dominica. Tied Trinidad and Tobago. They lost a friendly in Martinique.

And this week they tied with Haiti (1-1). So in recent games against Haiti, Guadeloupe has one win, one loss, and one tie.

Ten recent games, a semi-final finish, and a 1.4 to 1.7 goals for/against ratio.

Looks like they are still charting new territory and remain largely an unknown quantity.

I saw highlights of their group play at the Digicel Cup. They have skill, but defensively they are awful. The play at the back in the loss to Guyana was beyond inept. Also, in the Cuba game the Cubans created loads of chances, but seemed to misfire alot. The addition of Sommeil and Fleurival should help though. Angloma i believe is in the holding mid/distributor role similar to which Nash played on Wednesday.

Here's what i found out a few weeks ago:

Franck Grandel (FC Utrecht/NED) -> backup keeper for Utrecht, played 2 games this year.

David Sommeil (Sheffield United/ENG), -> Released by Man City last summer. 5GP this year. relegated.

Miguel Comminges (Reims/FRA), -> 13GP, 2YC

David Fleurival (FC Tours/FRA), Capt. of Tours, they are being relegated to Nat. Conf.

Philippe Durpes (Romorantin/FRA), French Conference national (3rd D)

Ludovic Quistin, Tamworth striker, Eng. Conference (subbed on in the Haiti game)

Jocelyn Angloma, retired French international (played for Valencia earlier this decade)

Stéphane Auvray, French Conference national (3rd D)

Aurélien Capoue (FC Nantes/FRA) -> 10 GP, 0 Goals (in 05/06 he scored 3 in 20 GP) now relegated to Ligue 2.

Loic Loval (FC Utrecht/NED), -> 16GP, 2 Goals

I don't know how much you can tell from their previous results, at least half their lineup against Haiti were reinforcements that had not played for them before. As you might expect, they looked like a team of decent players that had never played together before.
