2026 World Cup qualifiers: the Haitian selection continues its triumphant march with a 3-1 victory against Barbados.

The Haitian football selection confirmed its excellent start in the Concacaf qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup by winning a 3-1 victory against Barbados, this Sunday, June 9, 2024. This success marks the second consecutive victory for the Grenadiers by Sébastien Migné, allowing them to approach the rest of the qualifications with renewed confidence and unfailing determination.

The match got off to a flying start for Haiti, with a goal in the 12th minute by Don Deedson Louicius, on an assist from Duckens Nazon. Just before halftime, Duke Lacroix doubled the lead in the 45+1 minute, taking advantage of a serve from Danley Jean Jacques, thus ensuring a comfortable 2-0 lead at the break.

In the second half, coach Sébastien Migné made several strategic changes. Frantzdy Pierrot gave way to Bryan Labissiere in the 63rd minute, while Belmar Joseph Jr replaced Leverton Pierre, and Mikael Cantave took over from Don Deedson Louicius. Despite these adjustments, Barbados managed to reduce the deficit through Niall Reid-Stephen in the 73rd minute, reviving their team’s hopes.

However, Haiti quickly reacted to extinguish any Barbadian hope. In the 84th minute, Bryan Labissiere scored the third Haitian goal, crowning a counter led by Duckens Nazon, who deflected for Mikael Cantave, before the latter delivered an assist to Labissiere. This quick response sealed the victory for the Grenadiers, who were able to keep their calm and manage the end of the match despite the pressure.

With this victory, Haiti strengthens its ambitions to qualify for the 2026 World Cup, co-organized by the United States, Mexico and Canada. The Grenadiers now have six points, tied with Curaçao, who claimed a 2-0 victory over Aruba. Curaçao is slightly ahead of Haiti in the ranking thanks to a better goal difference (+5 against +3).

The next challenge for Haiti in these qualifiers will be held in 2025. The Grenadiers will first travel to Aruba on Thursday June 5, 2025, before receiving the Curaçao team on Monday June 9, in meetings which already promise to be decisive for the continuation of their journey towards World 2026.
