On the floor of Uncle Sam more precisely at NRG Stadium, Canada experienced one of its most nightmarish evenings during the 2019 Gold Cup. In pole position after having folded the Haitian selection during the first period (0-2), he took water seriously in the second by conceding 3 three goals. A hell of a reassembly having brought the whole country to a boil. So many words to describe this titanic performance of the Grenadiers. Overthrowing Canada after being led to the score (0-2) remains a major operation especially since it does not fit into the habits of our bands. Duckens Nazon, Hervé Bazile and Wilde Donald Guerrier each set their pawn to achieve this feat while allowing Haiti to fly to the semi-finals.
This victory set the country in motion. Whether on social media or on various streets in some cities across the country, supporters responded correctly to the Grenadiers' call. Euphoria occupied the whole place and more than one chanted: “Sa'k pa Ayiti yo panike.”
According to Grégory Jeudy, this master stroke of the men by Marc Collat was spectacular d 'Besides, this is the last scenario he expected : ”It was absolutely incredible. I think it was the most emotional evening of this gold cup. Even led 2-0, part of us dreamed of a draw at the end of the 90 minutes, without obviously believing too much. This comeback was the best surprise the Grenadiers gave us during this adventure, “ he let us know.
Between what the Haiti team did that day and the reaction of the supporters, this proves how this people is attached to sport, how our sportsmen can hoist blue and red very high in foreign land and finally, how this sector deserves better treatment.
