Gold Cup Martinique Canada Soccer

Martinique racked up their first ever victory in CONCACAF Gold Cup history yesterday when Fabrice Reuperne ratcheted home a stonking first-time strike in the 93rd minute against Canada to win the game 1-0 with what was pretty much the last kick of the game.

And what a kick it was too, being only Reuperne’s second goal for his national team…

KABOOM!

    Good for them but, wow, we suck at soccer. Rock bottom, eh?

    I can’t even find Martinique in the FIFA World Rankings. That means they’re officially worse than Tahiti and my new favourites!

      @porcelain: They’re not officially recognised by FIFA, that’s why you can’t find them. They’re somewhere between Qatar and Lithuania in the Elo rankings.

    Minnows? As a canadian I dont think its much of a shock anymore. Shocking would have been a healthy win

    Canada was very poor. Not exactly the full strength squad but still probably should have beaten Martinique. It was a stunning strike but in fairness to them, Martinique were the better team throughout the entire match. We’ll always have the 2000 Gold Cup to remember fondly….
