Joseph Called Up for Haiti

KC will have a second player represented in the upcoming international window along with Roger Espinoza.  Joining Espinoza on international duty is the Haitian Xavi, Peterson Joseph.  Joseph has been called up for the Haitian national team for the first round of the Caribbean Championships qualifying.  Haiti begin their campaign to qualify for the 2013 Gold Cup next week.  In the first round Haiti host 3 games in a 5 day period in Port-au-Prince.  They start with non-FIFA member Saint-Martin, who is a member of CONCACAF on the 7th, on the 9th they will play Bermuda, and on the 11th they finish group play against Puerto Rico. 

Should Haiti finish first or second in their group they will qualify for the second qualifying round.  In that round they'd play in either Grenada (Oct 18-25) or Guadeloupe (Oct 21-28) (the 3rd group is hosted by Cuba) depending on if they finish first or second.  The top 2 in each of those final 3 groups will qualify for the finals in Antigua and Barbuda in December.  Should Haiti finish as one of the top 4 in the finals, they will qualify for the Gold Cup.

I hope that Haiti can do better this year. The stronger teams in the region are Mexico and US. So It left one space for the next work cup.
