By Mythsouka Jean-Philippe

The next European football season promises to be marked by the growing presence of Haitian talents on the continental scene. With a host of players already qualified for various qualifying rounds in UEFA competitions, and others still looking for a chance to do so. Haitian football makes its voice heard across the globe precisely on the European continent.

In the first qualifying round of the UEFA Conference League, three Haitian players have already secured their place. Jayro Hestefano Jean, defector from Always Ready in Bolivia playing at FK Aktobe in Kazakhstan, Wilguens Pauguain (French footballer of Haitian origin) at FK Auda in Latvia, and François André Dulysse at KF Egnatia in Albania, are preparing to proudly represent their country on the European stage.

Likewise, in the second qualifying round of the same competition, Frantzdy Pierrot, Haitian international player, is preparing to defend the colors of his country with Maccabi Haifa in Israel. And let’s not ignore Ronael Pierre Gabriel, from Dynamo Zagreb in Ukraine, who qualified for the qualifying round of the Champions League, raising the Haitian flag even higher in the most prestigious competitions in Europe.

But the quest for qualification does not stop there. The French of Haitian origin Rubens Fritzner Providence, from TSV Hartberg in Austria, and Yassin Fortuné, from Polissya Zhytomyr in Ukraine, continue their efforts to join their compatriots on the European scene. Providence is currently in the playoffs for the title in Austria, with the hope of qualifying for the UEFA Conference League, while Fortuné is aiming for a place in the first qualifying round of the same competition, but with the need for his club to obtain positive results to hope for European participation.

Thus, with this growing presence on the European scene, Haitian players are asserting themselves as increasingly influential players in the world of global football, flying the colors of their nation and showcasing their talents on European fields.
