In Group C, Haiti will face Dominican Republic and St. Kitts and Nevis. For coach Yves-François Melidor, it’s not going to be easy for his side to take any points versus the hosts, since they have “a great level and started playing handball long before our team,” while St. Kitts and Nevis “are an opponent of a similar quality in comparison with us.”

Even though their preparation started in July, Melidor explains it would have been better if they had played friendly matches. On the other side, the most outstanding thing the squad have – he says – is “plenty of motivation.”

Haiti’s goal at Santo Domingo 2019 is to “go as far as possible in the championship and play as many games as we can.”
