Haiti’s win over Mexico has put Jamaica on the backfoot and no doubt a call for a greater strategy on the part of coach Lorne Donaldson.
The Haitians proved to be no walkover when they put away the Mexican 3-0 in their second Group A Concacaf W Championship encounter.
This result also means that the United States cannot finish lower than second place in the group and has officially qualified for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Haiti got the start of a lifetime when in the 13th minute of the match, Mexican defender Stephany Mayor committed a foul in the area, and the referee awarded Haiti a penalty.
Roselord Borgella made no mistake in putting the ball at the back of the net to give her team a 1-nil lead in the game.
There was no ease up by the Haitians as they pressed the Mexican and gained further success in the 65th minute when GK Emily Alvarado brought down Nérilia Mondésir in the penalty area.
Mondesir made the Mexicans pay for their indiscretion by scoring the second goal of the match for her team.
Finally, the chicken came home to roost as Sherly Jeudy scored with a freekick that even the great Pele would be proud to see a ball floating over the wall to hit the back of the net – that put her team in a 3-nil position and Mexico out of contention in the game.
With zero wins in two matches, Mexico will stand on their last leg when they meet the giant USA, who is already qualified for the world cup.
On the other hand, Haiti will be up against Jamaica next Monday in a winner take all showdown for the next available spot in Group A.
