Caribbean Football Union rivals Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago are set to square off in CONCACAF Gold Cup action on Friday, July 12th at Sun Life Stadium.
Haiti, who qualified for the Gold Cup by finishing second in the 2012 Caribbean Cup, looks to carry momentum from recent strong performances against international soccer powerhouses Spain and Italy.
Haiti suffered a 2-1 loss to the defending World Cup Champions Spain in match held in June at Sun Life Stadium. During that game, the Haiti faithful saw sparks of greatness from Donald Guerrier Wilde, who scored the only goal for Haiti during the game. Haiti followed this strong outing with an even more impressive performance against Italy, where they rallied from two goals down, to finish with a 2-2 tie.
Trinidad and Tobago, who finished third in the 2012 Caribbean Cup, looks forward to the CONCACAF Gold Cup as an opportunity to bounce back from a recent string of defeats in tune-up matches last month.
Trinidad and Tobago was held scoreless in recent matches against Estonia and Romania in early June.
The nation is looking to rally behind new team manager Stephen Hart. Hart, the former manager of the Canadian National Team, is a native of Trinidad and Tobago and was selected to be the team’s manager this June.
