Spain – 2 Haiti – 1

Okay. Spain has arguably the best national soccer team the world has ever seen. The consecutive winners of Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, and Euro 2012, we all knew that la Roja was going to be impressive. What many weren’t counting on, was Haiti being able to keep up.

No one was particularly surprised when Santi Carloza shot in the first goal for Spain within 8 minutes of the game and Cesc Fabregas made the second at 18. However, it was when Donald Guerrier scored at around the 75 minute mark, that the stadium of over 36,000 people erupted in jubilation.

Looks like this game was a step in the right direction for the new image that Haiti is trying to portray to the world.
