After first half scare, Canada comes back to beat Haiti 4-2


After going down 2-0 at half time Canada scored four unanswered goals to mount a 4-2 win over an all Canadian-based Haitian team yesterday night in Guatemala City.

It was a poor first half performance from Canada against a team they were widely touted to beat.

However, Canada scored all four of their goals within the final seven minutes of the match, kickstarted by a Damien Graham strike in the 33rd.

Ian Bennett tied it up minutes later before Safwan Mlah and Bila Dicko-Raynauld both gave Canada full points in the final minute of play. Canada play tournament favourites Costa Rica tonight at the Domo Polideportivo. Both teams have already clinched a spot into the quarter final round as it is a three team group. The winner of the match will clinch first place in Group C. Winners of the quarter final will book a spot at the 2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Lithuania.

Haiti have lost both of their group stage games and are now eliminated from the tournament.
