Strikers Players Picault and Marcelin called up by Haitian National Team
Fort Lauderdale Strikers players Fafa Picault and James Marcelin have been called up by the Haitian National Team as they prepare to play against Chile on Tuesday, September 9th at Lockhart Stadium.
This is the first time Picault, who leads the team with eight goals this season, has been called up to play for Haiti. Picault has previously trained with the USA U-20 National Team, which was coached by former Striker Thomas Rongen at the time.
James Marcelin, who joined the Strikers in the fall, has 24 caps for the Haitian National Team, including starts in the 2009 Gold Cup and in several World Cup qualifiers. He has scored twice in the Qualifiers, with one goal coming against the U. S. Virgin Islands and the other tally against Curacao.
The Haitian National Team is currently being coached by Frenchman Marc Collat.
