While the majority of viewers will choose to tune in to the concurrent fixture in Group D, Haiti’s clash with Denmark certainly isn’t one to miss. Despite sitting at the bottom of the group with two losses from their opening two matches, Haiti are still mathematically capable of progressing to the round-of-sixteen.
A win against Denmark would be enough to seal qualification for les Grenadières if England are able to beat China – with the latter result seeming almost certain. The rød-hvide themselves have failed to reach the knockout stages since 1995, and they’ll be desperate to re-estabish themselves as a force to be reckoned with both in Europe and on the international stage.
Haiti suffered a slender defeat to England on Matchday One, with Georgia Stanway’s strike from the penalty spot the difference in that encounter. They were then toppled by the same scoreline at the hands of China, as Wang Shuang netted the deciding penalty in that game. Of course – that means Haiti have yet to concede a goal from open play, which is a positive they’ll look to focus on ahead of Tuesday’s deciding fixture.
Denmark do occupy the second qualification spot in Group D ahead of this final match, having picked up three points against the Steel Roses in their opening match. Amalie Vangsgaard’s late strike was the difference for the rød-hvide in that fixture, though Denmark will be hoping that they don’t leave it that late to seal their fate this time around!
It goes without saying that Haiti will be without Jennyfer Limage for this final fixture, after the star tore her anterior cruciate ligament in their tournament opener. Melchi Dumornay is expected to return to the starting lineup though, having impressed as a half-time substitute last time out.
Denmark are expected to make just the one change to their preferred eleven, with Nicoline Sorensen returning to the fray after being benched against England.
Haiti: Théus; Petit-Frère, Joseph, K. Louis, Mathurin; Moryl, Pierre-Louis; B. Louis, Jeudy, Mondésir; Borgella
Denmark: Christensen; Sevecke, Pedersen, Boye, Veje; Hasbo, Holmgaard; Thomsen, Kühl, Sorensen; Harder
