Coach Stephen Hart has faced Haiti once, albeit at the junior (U-17) level. Canada’s U-17 team defeated Haiti 5:0 on 19 May 2005 in CONCACAF qualifying.



Canada is in second place in Group A with three points, one point behind first-place Guadeloupe, one point ahead of third-place Haiti and two points ahead of last-place Costa Rica. The Guadeloupe-Costa Rica match kicks off at 19.00 ET while the Canada-Haiti match kicks off at 21.00 ET. If the Canadians defeats Haiti, they will advance with six points, regardless of the outcome of the Guadeloupe-Costa Rica match. If Guadeloupe defeats Costa Rica, then Canada needs a win or a draw to advance. If Costa Rica defeats Guadeloupe, then a Canada-Haiti draw (one point each) will put Canada in a three-way tie with Guadeloupe and Costa Rica (all with four points) whereby goal differential will decide which countries advance to the second round.



Goalkeeper Pat Onstad will rejoin the roster on Monday after having played for his club Houston Dynamo on the weekend.



From the tournament’s 16-year history (eight finals), Canada were Gold Cup champions in 2000.
