MIAMI, Florida – Haiti and Curacao flexed their respective scoring muscles with lopsided wins in 2019/20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying on matchday five on Monday.
Haiti rocketed to the top of the CNL standings with a 13-0 romp at home over Sint Maarten, thanks in part to Duckens Nazon’s five goal effort with scores in the 19’, 35’, 42’ 61 and 64’.
The win also marked the largest official victory in Haitian football history.
Frantzdy Pierrot also added a brace (11’, 73’), while Charles Herold (47’), Carlens Arcus (59’), Wilde-donald Guerrier (62’), Derrick Etienne (72’), Soni Mustivar (86’), Jeff Louis (88’) and a Diaro Forsythe own goal (26’) all contributed to the final score.
With his five goals, Nazon is the current leading scorer in the CNL.
2017 Concacaf Gold Cup participants Curacao showed that it is motivated to make a return to the 2019 edition by delivering a 10-0 win over Grenada.
Elson Hooi got things started with a right-footed finish in the 11’ to make it 1-0 to Curacao. Cuco Martina extended the lead to 2-0 in the 19’ by polishing off a header off a cross from the right side.
Four minutes later it was 3-0 courtesy of Brandley Kuwas, who collected a ball inside the area and fired in a left-footed shot.
The scores kept coming in the second half and Leandro Bacuna made it 4-0 with a calm finish from 18 yards out in the 53’. Rangelo Janga was next to get in on the action and fired home in the 59’ to stretch the advantage to 5-0.
Four minutes later Gevaro Nepomuceno curled in a left-footed shot to make it 6-0 and by the 68’ Bacuna scored his second for a 7-0 lead.
Janga tacked on goals in the 84’ and 89’ to earn his hat trick and Ruensley Leuteria completed the 10-0 scoreline with a stoppage time strike.
