Haiti ties Japan 3-3

After leaving the national team in controversial manner, Marc Collat returned with a vengeance and Japan almost became a collateral damage as Duckens "The Duck" Nazon scored two beautiful goals to remind the Asian powerhouse that CONCACAF is a more competitive region.

Great article

Rating the new faces of the national team

After a shock elimination from the Gold Cup qualifiers, Haiti calls up 7 new and young players from abroad to face Japan in a friendly on 10 October. The new faces are Jean Ambrose, Jems Geffrard, Bryan Alceus, Zachary Herivaux, Renald Metelus, Jimmy Sannon, and Richelor Sprangers. What do we know about those players and do they all deserve to join the national team? We  look at each player background and performance at club level to determine whether a player receives the call on merit or not. Because all 7 players are under 25, we do not pretend that a player we deem undeserving of the call-up is unqualified for future selection. We understand that some players do improve the quality of their game as they become older.

I think a lot of guys performed well and Herivaux especially looked good. I am however more impressed with The Duck. If this kid can keep going like that I can see him at Wolves sooner than later this season.

That being said, we will lose big probably 4-0 or 4-1. Too many new players with almost no time to help them come together. But I won't be surprise if the margin is wider.

That being also, I like some of the players in the list especially Sanon.

Good analysis, you guys. I believe the truth is Nicaragua made the mistake of trying to play defense to keep the score tied. They gave us too much respect hearing the names of all the big superstars in our team. The second half, they took it to us and I was saying to myself why were they so shy in the first half. I do not know if you guys recalled but I came back here to say we might lose in Managua. However, I was thinking 1-0, 2-1 something like that BUT NOT A WHOPPING 3-0!!!!!

The one thing we need to understand guys is that certain players we consider big superstars actually weaken the team because they are really not good.

It is not a coincidence that since CH came back Haiti won nearly every match he played in as the main distributor while Haiti lost all the games where he is benched or not called up. Also, notice that is true for certain other players like Etienne, Alex etc. Why? Because the players we consider better than those guys are actually not.

To me, our problems are 1) we play the wrong players and we stubbornly refuse to acknowledge that those players we consider better are actually the ones who are hurting the team; 2) for some reason, we keep believing that we are defense only team; 3) the coaches we hire are all bidons and they are too grateful for getting a job to actually stand to fhf when the bozos want to destroy the team.

I agree with every thing you say here and taking in consideration the choices of players and positions on the filed.., I still think we had a superior team and could have still advance...because these same players did win convincingly in Haiti.. and could have easily beaten Nica 4-1 or 3-0 in Haiti..

The team that lost to Nica was a typical collat formation with 4 defenders, 2 middle defensives and 4 guys in the front and neither knew what his true role was because like in collat's team those guys had to stay put waiting for a lucky pass to reach them. The distributor Herold was replaced by Jeff who thought he was a striker, the tricky Etienne that frustrated the Trinidadians were replaced by Donald who also thought he was a striker and never passed the ball. Christian who was freed to move up and down the wing knowing that Aristide was strong behind him was pushed back and Kervens was assigned to be left winger. Kervens also thought he was the striker. So, you have a bunch of less capable players in the field while the good ones sit on the bench or position where they could not impact the game. I mean why would you bench Andrew after his great performance in the previous two games? Mind blowing!

Boubounay replied the topic: #164 1 month 2 weeks ago
Versus Trinidad and Surinam, the team had 3 mobile defenders: Pompe, Andrew, Aristide (only Mechack is a sedentary def)

One rover as a mid-def: Thurierre

One good tactician in the middle: Herold

Two versatile and highly offensive wingers: Christian, Etienne

And two forwards: Belfort, Desire

As you could see, that team would strike back on every failed offensive from the opponents. That was a team built to outscore the opponents. Even Belfort found his groove because of the good support he received from his teammates.

Out of nowhere and for no apparent reasons, Haiti brought a totally different team versus Nica with players who are sedentary in their positions. That was why we lost.

I really don't blame this one on the coaching staff...I just thought our players stop/quit playing and allow Nicaragua to score 3 goals in 10 minutes..They even refer to this game as the most exciting 10 minutes in Nicaraguan soccer story..,....courtesy of Haiti. They never had any thing to cheer for in the past 100 years..after Haiti's goal was disallowed.. players failed to realize that they're playing against the Referee plus Nicaragua and stopped trying to win and played defensive since they needed a tie and or a 1 goal lost to advance..I blame that one on our players solely...

@Tini, you play football to win and that is the huge problem with Collat who plays football not to get blown away. If you pack 5 defenders and 2 defensive midfielders in your own half of course other teams will find it hard to score but most will eventually score once or twice. Since you do not have the manpower to strike back, you are likely to lose!

Do you play for 'honorable losses' or 'ties'? That is what Collat does. We know it because we all witnessed it for three years.

As for losing to Nicaragua, the fault was not on the style of football we played but on who we have in the team. We all know what was coming the moment we saw the list of players selected for the Nica games.

With Collat, Haiti would have still be eliminated because he would have done the same thing leaving out the better players for the ones FHF preferred just like Josaphat did. The only difference is that Collat's team wouldn't have won in Port-au-Prince. The team would likely tied Nicaragua 0-0 or 1-1 then played to another tie in Managua. That is Collat.

Even though I really would love to see a team like the one who defeated T&T and Surinam to earn the play-off against Nicaragua, I would say this in favor of Collat, his team was more competitive playing at the higher level and really never got blown away by any other teams who were supposes to be better on paper than us..Im referring to the like of US, Panama, Honduras and.. Jamaica in that previous GC.. and I bet you a Collat's team wouldn't have been blown away by a team like Nicaragua .. His style, although not very offensive or aggressive seem to keep the team in all games..Im picking Haiti to lose by no more than 2 goals..like a 1-0, 2-1, 3 -1, 2-0 lost..

Yipe! The majority of the players he calls up are defenders. How do you win when all you do is waiting in the back for the ball then throw it back up front hoping that on a lucky day one of your forwards will get to the ball first and miraculously scores! Haiti rarely scored during Collat's first stint because we always had Kervens and Nazon in the front, nobody really in the midfield, and 6 or 7 guys in the back throwing the ball back to the front.

Collat's style is anti-football. It is a sitting duck posture that teams like USA, Mexico, Costa Rica will always welcome.

Remember that it was under a lot of pressure that Collat reluctantly agreed to relax his rigid defensive style to play a more fluid football. The first time he actually made use of the midfield and allowed the players to move the ball around instead of throwing it back was versus China and the result was obvious. Everybody could see an improvement. Under pressure, he took the team to the gold cup but reverted back to his old fashion. The consequence was that the team always played for a tie unless the opponents were unlucky enough not to score in which case we likely lost.

In nearly 3 years, Haiti only managed to score 4 goals versus non-CFU teams! We lost or tied all our games versus non-CFU teams except one against an experimental Honduras team.

Collat left the national team because of failures. I have no idea why we are having him back. I have little doubt Collat will again pack the back with 5 standing defenders with 2 additional defensive midfielders in front of them. Even the wingers he will make sure they are more defenders than attackers. Basically, we will have 8 or 9 defenders and 1 or 2 strikers.

I think collat doesn't care about midfield he only plays pingpong long passes from defenders to forwards it was that style collat was forced to reject because he could not win any games. Alceus or not the midfield will be non-existing.
5-0 japan and hopefully president bananne jovenel seizes the fhf and orders the club owners to elect a new president.

Goreux, Mustivar, and Bazile recuse themselves from Collat's list

Reginald Goreux, Herve Bazile, and Soni Mustivar have recused themselves from Collat's team of foreign-based players and the supporters of the Haiti national teams could not be happier! "Mèsi senyè", one aficionado writes on the Facebook page of Haiti-Tempo. On Twitter, a supporter writes, "krab yo pran konsyans."

Good neither derserved it. in the list the guys who deserve it are placide, alex, arcus, Andrew, lafrance, Zachary (becoz we needed to cap him to steal him from usa and we also need someone who speak japonese with the group), richelors (we needed to cap him like Zachary), Nazon (not great but he is the best striker we know since Dadou won't take the current Haiti leader Bocius), Etienne.

Players I believe who deserve to be on the list are tiga, herold, ade, paulson, babalito, nerlins, selso

players who shouldn't have been on the list are valendi, goreux, alceus, mustivar, herve, desire

Collat's preliminary list is becoming more 'national'

For the 10 October friendly versus Japan, the newly-appointed and controversial coach Marc Collat published a list of players that left little doubt that he is intended to bring back a team that is totally independent from Haitian football. The list contained 14 foreign-born players, mostly from France, and just 1 representative of the local league. Fortunately some of those players, probably aware of the true reason they have been called up, decide to recuse themselves citing various excuses which has forced the coach and his bosses at the federation haitienne de football (FHF) to turn to some other players. The new additions, so far Haitian-Canadian Jimmy Sanon and Haiti-born Mardochee Pompe, certainly make the list looks more like a national team.

I don't think Haitians born abroad or half Haitians is the issue. I cannot remember any period of times when Haiti did not have at least one player coming from abroad other than during the de facto period.

I think the issue is that now these guys do not just come to reinforce the national team, they actually replace every local player. The worst is that they would also replace even players from Haiti who are based abroad if there were enough of them.

The problems with that is that they basically eliminate national football from the national team, they block natural progression of talents, and they make it hard for Haiti to compete with strong teams because it is harder to get all the players together for long period of times.

As you know USA or Mexico can easily gather 80% of their right from home. Jamaica can get 50% from home to start preparing. Haiti cannot even get 1% because all of its players live abroad and Haiti is not a country where people just go easily.

The result is that we won't be able to discover good local players, we will send less players to foreign leagues, and our team will lose in a dogfight versus every well-prepared foreign team.

Not totally true. Tiga can do all of those things you mentioned but he does not take chances becoz he is a disciplined guy ,he does what he is asked to do. as for Donald, I believe his skills are diminishing and soon he will be like Belfort, a pariah in football but he will keep getting contracts becoz that is the way it works if you have a good agent you will always get a job even in India until you are totally done. Maurice is still getting contracts! in 2016, Fabrice Noel was rumored to be in Malaysia.

It doesn't matter anymore who can play good football or not. They just call the same small group of players they know. If you know someone in fhf you have a better chance to get called up if you tell them you were born overseas than bother to show them if you can play or not.

Fabien Vorbe - what has gone wrong?

He is at the prime age of 27 and has under his belt many years of experience playing in various foreign leagues yet to many supporters something is not right with the former U-17 player that once made many Haitian hopeful that by this time we would have at least one truly great striker in our senior team. Unfortunately, this dream never materialize. What went wrong?

Hum I don't think we can blame Dadou for Fabien. If I recall his parents made some pretty bad choices after the world cup. What could Dadou do? Parents decide what they want for their kids.

To me, after high school if a player has skills and there are interests at a high level in the player it is more important to go for the football career than going to college unless it is possible to do both. You are not going to tell Manchester to wait. College can wait because if you do make it big you probably won't need a college degree for work. You already have a few millions saved, hopefully. What do Ronaldo and Messi need college for?

    I was wondering that. Collat, Neveu, ak titonton Haiti a yo tout gen menm tip lis sa yo. Se pa antrenè yo vre ki chwazi jwè. Nou sonje kan yon jounalis mande Neveu poukisa li pa rele Charles Herold, Neveu mande ki moun ki Chaleres Herold la paske yo pa janm pale li de Charles Herold.

    Lis yo se Dadou ki bay yo.

    It doesn't matter anymore who can play good football or not. They just call the same small group of players they know. If you know someone in fhf you have a better chance to get called up if you tell them you were born overseas than bother to show them if you can play or not.

    Good neither derserved it. in the list the guys who deserve it are placide, alex, arcus, Andrew, lafrance, Zachary (becoz we needed to cap him to steal him from usa and we also need someone who speak japonese with the group), richelors (we needed to cap him like Zachary), Nazon (not great but he is the best striker we know since Dadou won't take the current Haiti leader Bocius), Etienne.

    Players I believe who deserve to be on the list are tiga, herold, ade, paulson, babalito, nerlins, selso

    players who shouldn't have been on the list are valendi, goreux, alceus, mustivar, herve, desire

    what I think is that he wants to play football but his people want him to do something else. do you guys remember sebastien vorbe? he quit football as soon as he completed his studies in usa. this is a problem with kids from rich families not just in Haiti but in many poor countries. the parents usually consider playing football as a poor guy thing to do, they don't see it as a possible career path to make money. in rich countries parents do not have this problem.

    Hum I don't think we can blame Dadou for Fabien. If I recall his parents made some pretty bad choices after the world cup. What could Dadou do? Parents decide what they want for their kids.

    To me, after high school if a player has skills and there are interests at a high level in the player it is more important to go for the football career than going to college unless it is possible to do both. You are not going to tell Manchester to wait. College can wait because if you do make it big you probably won't need a college degree for work. You already have a few millions saved, hopefully. What do Ronaldo and Messi need college for?

    they have been playing with that neck thing in many previous maillots. the white t-shirt is the first one where the French flag become so clear. I won't buy any t-shirt under dadou but I would not buy this white t-shirt with french flag even if dadou was not the president.
