Haiti head to Gold Cup on back of defeat

Frantzdy Pierrot scored for Haiti against Chile

Haiti suffered defeat in their final warm-up match before the Concacaf Gold Cup, losing 2-1 to Chile in La Serena on Thursday.

Frantzdy Pierrot, who plays for Royal Excel Mouscron in Belgium, scored the opener in the 26th minute before quickfire goals from Eduardo Vargas and Jose Fuenzalida in the second half gave Chile the win.

Chile were playing their final tune-up game before starting the defence of their Copa America title against Japan on June 17.

Nicaragua also lost their final warm-up game 5-1 away to Argentina on Friday.

Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martíne scored braces for Argentina, with Robert Pereyra netting the other goal.

Juan Barrera scored a 90th-minute penalty for Nicaragua.

The Gold Cup features 16 teams divided into four groups of four, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the quarter-finals.
