With the game tied and Haiti in no hurry to play, the Haitian keeper had the ball at his feet waiting for the Trini player before picking it up but for a second. Somehow however, the ref called delay of game on the Haitian keeper, which seems weird because no infractions had been committed by the keeper according to the rule book.
It was Haiti’s turn this time to argue to the ref, and as we were doing just that, the Trinis did to Haiti what we had done to them earlier. They played the ball early, which resulted in their forward scoring a wide open goal.
In the ensuing mélée that followed, a Haitian Assistant Coach was sent off as no one could believe what had happened. Interestingly enough, a Haiti vs T&T match is usually played with controversy as there is no love lust between the two countries.
Haiti managed to tie the game right before the half off a corner kick by Charles Herold Jr, who found the head of Kervens Belfort and the score was 2-2.
