Derrick Etienne Jr. Called Up To Haiti Men’s National Team

New York Red Bulls forward Derrick Etienne Jr. has been called up to the Haiti Men’s National Team for a friendly against Japan.

The match will take place on Tuesday, October 10 in Yokohama, Japan.

“I’m glad to be able to go with my country,” Etienne Jr. said. “Any time you’re able to go with your countryman, play for your country against another, it’s a prideful moment.”

Etienne Jr. represented the Haitian Senior Team most recently the 2017 Gold Cup Playoffs in March.

In January, New York’s Homegrown Player scored his first international goal in a win against Trinidad & Tobago in which Haiti qualified for the Gold Cup Playoffs.

Etienne Jr. said he looks forward to representing his country against the World Cup bound Japanese team and hopes to benefit from with his involvement.

“They have some guys who have gone to the World Cup a couple of times and I’m looking forward to a great experience,” Etienne Jr. said. “I’m looking forward to getting some minutes out there and hopefully we get a result.”

Etienne Jr. has played 16 MLS games for the Red Bulls this season, including six starts. He has two assists in 553 minutes played this year.
