Forge Defender Garven Metusala Set For Concacaf Nations League
Having now established himself with the Haiti national team, Forge defender Garven Metusala will return to national team duty in September.
The Forge defender has been called upon for Haiti’s Concacaf Nations League matches against Cuba and Jamaica, which take place on September 8 and 12 respectively. This means Metusala will miss his club’s away trip to Vancouver and a key home clash against Cavalry.
Metusala has made five appearances for the national team thus far, featuring in every possible minute for Haiti at this year’s Gold Cup. Having bested Qatar 2-1, dropped results against Mexico and Honduras saw Les Grenadiers head home early.
It’s now two years since we first reported that the Terrebonne-born defender was being tapped by Haiti, though his debut didn’t occur until a friendly against Guatemala back in March 2022 due to travel difficulties from the COVID-19 pandemic, and then a belated 2020 Canadian Championship Final against Toronto FC which caused him to prioritize club duty at the time.
The Forge defender has split his duties between centre-back and left-back this season, making fourteen appearances between league and cup play.
The 23-year-old has now made 75 professional club appearances since signing with Forge in 2021, having developed in Quebec’s semi-professional ranks.
