If everything goes as planned Haiti and all other CONCACAF countries may be looking forward to a busy 2018 when the region's League of Nations will debut. As if that is not enough football, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is also pushing for a Global League of Nations that will provide even more competitions for the national team.
In response to a proposal by UEFA to create a league between its associations that will last 2 years and literally wipe out the need and availability of European teams for friendlies with teams from outside the confederation, CONCACAF has decided to play its own League of Nations with all its 41 members. Smaller football teams such as Bahamas and Dominican Republic who rarely play 4 competitive matches a year will greatly profit from this year-long tournament.
Players from local leagues will be the biggest winners of this new tournament. Foreign clubs will find it hard to comply with the mandatory releases of players for national team duties on FIFA dates and we can expect some of them to sign less foreign players or request that their contracted players to reject national team's calls. Thus, more local players will be capped.
It is believed that the League of Nations will not benefit much the big three Mexico, USA, and Costa Rica who will miss out on playing high profile and competitive friendlies versus top European teams. However, as explained above, those friendlies will be gone anyway since the European teams will not be available.
UEFA's proposal for a global league of nations will allow teams from a confederation to play competitively against their counterparts from the rest of the world, thus eliminating the need for friendlies and providing smaller teams a chance to participate and win international titles.
CONCACAF's League of Nations will closely ressemble that of UEFA with several divisions which will be determined based on FIFA ranking. In CONCACAF Haiti is highly ranked therefore we expect the country to be in the top division. This means that in 2018 Haiti may face Mexico, USA, Costa Rica and the like each twice. However, where Haiti will fall in the UEFA's 7 division league is everyone's guess.
Sanon is another story. Most of his goals are against top CONCACAF teams. Besides remember Sanon did what a real striker should do. He took his team to the world cup.
Peguero is another good striker who I would rank ahead of Golman. Most of his goals are against real competitions. But he comes behind Sanon because while in his prime he failed to take Haiti to even the hex.
Nazon does not yet show the level of scoring skills of Sanon or Peguero but he is getting a lot better at just 23. He failed the first WCQ but he is going to have a chance to redeem himself next year.
Maurice was a decent scorer but besides the two goals versus Trinidad and 1 versus El Salvador almost all his goals were versus little Caribbean teams. He failed two WCQ.
Kervens is similar to Maurice. He did score against a couple top teams in friendly games but that was before he turned 20.
Jeff, Norde are the worst scorers among the guys who have played in a forward position recently.
Finally, if I were to rank past and present strikers I would have Sanon, Peguero, Nazon, Golman, Belfort, Maurice. I do not mean Nazon is better than Golman who was obviously a more powerful scorer. The difference as I said is that Golman did not stay long enough in the national team.
Most of the top 8 will likely to be dominated by Central Caribbean teams
My top division of 14 would be:
St Kitts and Nevis
Antigua and Barbuda
St. Vincent and Grenadines
Turks and Caicos
Note: If French Guiana, Martinique and Guadeloupe participate things change.
