PORT-AU-PRINCE — Haiti’s Boys’ U14 soccer team has retained its title of champion of the Caribbean after beating Puerto Rico 2-0 at the Olímpico Félix Sanchez stadium in the Dominican Republic Aug. 21.

“From the [first] stage of choosing the players, despite the country’s situation, to get to the final — it’s a satisfaction,” coach Eddy César said ahead of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) final event.

The game, a rematch of last year’s final, saw Haiti put on a masterful display of skills and physicality to put Puerto Rico on the defensive early in the match. Jackson Saintilnord and Angelo Lauré scored in the 12th and the 63rd minute of the game, respectively. 


Haiti’s youth soccer team win against Puerto Rico makes this the Tier 1 Haiti’s second championship in succession.
