  1. Haiti have exceeded your expectations by getting a victory over Antigua and Barbuda to go with the other two results which were predicted correctly.

    Haiti will face Cuba in the semis.

    Jamaica finished dead last in their group! The best team in the Caribbean will not be at the Gold Cup.

  2. Yeah, some surprises there !

    Haiti could reach 734 FIFA points if they go all the way with wins against Cuba in the semis and against Trinidad in the final. If Martinique reaches the final and Haiti wins they will have 699 points. Somewhere around 34th spot in the December ranking.

    Even if they lose their semis and 3rd place play-off Haiti will be third in the CONCACAF-ranking.
    Mission accomplished for now. Then wait and see what Panama, Honduras and Costa Rica will do in the UNCAF Cup in January.

  3. I expect some heads to roll at the JFF.

    1. Is that Jamaican Football Federation?

      It's a funny one though, the flipside is Jamaica are the only Caribbean team to make the Hex. I think they probably underestimated the competition since they've dominated it in recent years.
