Haiti beat Martinique 2-1 in Matchday 3 of the Gold Cup 2021. Haiti said goodbye to the tournament with their first win thanks to goals from Carnejy Antoine and Ricardo Adé. Martinique didn’t have their best day, as they finished the game with two players due to red cards.
Haiti scored the first just three minutes into the match. A defensive error helped Antoine receive the ball in the middle of the area and strike to goal. However, Martinique responded with Kevin Fortune’s header, which also happens to be the 1000th goal of the Gold Cup.
Then, Ricardo Adé made the second for Haiti with a free-kick that was impossible for Bryan Silvestre. However, both teams, Haiti and Martinique, leave the tournament, as the United States and Canada go through to the next round. Here, check out the highlights and goals:
