I'd role with the same front 3 from the start


Tabla - Brym - Buchanan

Baldisimo - Metcalfe

Godinho - Cornelius - Norman Jr. - Brault-Guillard



I would only make one change. I would start Bair instead of Brym. Depending how the entire front three are playing, Brym can come on later. 

I wasn't too impressed with Brym in game 1, where the other two were great. I also think the Haitians will be a lot stronger defensively, which will benefit Bairs game a lot more.

Let's hope Haiti didn't give Godinho PSTD...otherwise I wouldn't mind seeing what Farsi can do!

I’m all for Godhino to exorcised his demons against Haiti today. But because of ZBG he is playing on the left so if he was to be replaced, Bassong or Abzi would be the direct replacements.

The Haitians are going to be more physical than ES. I think we need Bair in at CF. Brym looked like he got knocked off the ball several times vs ES.

The irony is that Bair is more of a finesse player than a physical force, despite his size.

I think we will see a very similar FWD/MID group as we did vs ES.. with all of the players left off the roster we just don’t have the depth to rotate the entire roster and still expect a result. I think we’re gonna see a big early game push to get us in a position to make some early subs so we can rest the big guns for Honduras.

I wonder how much squad rotation we’ll have, hopefully Dias gets the start.

In replace of Daniels....it would be interesting to see.
But I rather not have too much unnecessary squad rotation. Try to keep the momentum from the first game, considering this is win and were in.

I think we all secretly resent Daniels cause we don't like taking guys from USL, but I thought he was really good. He made some deceptive turns that opened space for through balls just out of confusion. I'd like him to start again.

I'm looking forward to this.  The defence is solid, the forwards are good and the middle will be just fine.  While Norman and Metcalfe have serious Gagnon-Lepare/Beaulieu-Bourgault vibes and I could take them or leave them, y'all are sleeping on Daniels.  He's a gamer.  He'll be fine.

Play a 4-3-3 and it'll be good.

*cough*  Ahem.  Excuse me.  Must be something caught in my throat...

It's difficult to analyse this lineup given the fiasco of their previous match.

For @JasonDias and others who were curious, the head coach said that they were pressured to play the first match with a threat of expulsion if they didn't. Threats to senior national team about WCQ expulsion were also mentioned. I have no idea if there is any truth to this.
