FIFA U-17 World Cup Appearances: 1 (2007)
Haiti won the 2014 Caribbean Under-17 Championship, defeating Jamaica – which had scored 37 goals in its previous six games in the competition – in the final, 2-0.
With exceptional balance between offense and defense, the 2015 CONCACAF Under-17 Championship arguably represents Les Grenadiers best opportunity to qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup since it did so in 2007. For that to happen, though, memories of recent tournament history must fade into the background.
The Haitians have lost four straight games in the competition, conceding three goals in each of those outings, including a forfeit in 2011. They have scored more than two goals in a CONCACAF Under-17 Championship match only twice in 13 attempts.
If its qualifying form can be transported to Honduras, Haiti will give itself a real chance of reaching the global stage once again.
