Alexandre Gets Start vs. Argentina
Real Salt Lake midfielder Jean Alexandre and his Haitian National
Team might not have gotten the result they had hoped for yesterday
against Argentina, but you can bet that the 1-4 loss to the Albicelestes
in Buenos Aires was an experience that the squad not only wanted, but
needed, as the country’s soccer federation continues to rebound from
January’s deadly earthquake. Alexandre earned his 5th senior appearance
for les Grenadiers, playing the first 58 minutes before being
subbed out of the friendly. The 23-year-old is expected to rejoin his
RSL teammates on Friday and should be available for selection for
Saturday’s match-up against the Philadelphia Union.
