FIFA U-17 World Cup: Chile Outclass Haiti

Chile outlasted Haiti to revive their Brazil 2019 campaign with an action-packed and at-times physical 4-2 win in Goiania on Wednesday. The South Americans took an early lead and were never behind although they were briefly pegged back during the first half, and were pushed to the limit by a dynamic Haiti. The result sees Chile leapfrog into second in Group C ahead of Korea Republic on goal difference, while Haiti will need a victory in their final outing against France on Saturday.
Having been kept scoreless by a strong France side in their opener, Chile will be pleased with their goalscoring output against Haiti. Chile scored twice in each half and, although goalscoring attempts were alike, it was the South Americans who created far more gilt-edged openings. Gonzalo Tapia was their most dangerous outlet netting a goal, providing an assist and forcing an own goal.

Haiti got their two consolations firstly through a Samuel Jeanty 37th minute penalty and Kervens Jolicoeur in the 55th minute.

Samuel Jeanty was later sent off for second bookable offence with two minutes to go.
