    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Haiti will take a 19-man roster, led by striker Jean-Eudes Maurice, to the Korea Republic for an international friendly on Friday against the host in Incheon.

     

    The 27-year-old forward scored the Grenadiers’ only two goals at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup in a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago.

     

    Interim head coach Pierre Roland Saint Jean has called on several new players that were not part of the squad that was eliminated following the Group Stage at the biennial CONCACAF event, including midfielder Soni Mustivar and forward Gary Ambroise.

     

    Haiti will be hoping to regain the form that pushed it to an all-time high 38th position in the FIFA rankings this past January.  Despite impressive results against in friendlies against Spain (2-1 loss) and Italy (2-2 draw) in June, the Haitians currently sit 74th.

     

    It will be the first-ever time the two sides in a match that will be played at Incheon Football Stadium.
