Sony Norde, Mohun Bagan's electric winger, recorded his 21st cap for the Haitian national football team, when he came on as a second half substitute in the Caribbean country's win over Nicaragua, on Friday, 24th March.
The match was a Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) Gold Cup qualification tie, which the home side won 3-1. The first leg of the two-legged tie was contested at the Stade Sylvio Cator, in Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince.
Jeff Louis opened the scoring before Donald Guerrier doubled Le Rouge et Bleus' lead in the 40th minute. It was Guerrier whom the 27 year-old replaced. Duckens Nazon, the former Kerala Blasters' striker in the Indian Super League (ISL) got onto the score sheet as well, adding a third, before Nicargua notched up a consolation. The return leg is scheduled for 29th March.
Meanwhile, Willis Plaza - Norde's adversary at East Bengal in the I-League - remained an unused substitute in Trinidad and Tobago's CONCACAF World Cup Qualification group tie at Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain, over Panama.
The Reds won the tie 1-0, with Kevin Molino nicking the result for his team in the 37th minute. T & T, as they're colloquially called, now face the El Tri of Mexico in four days time.
