Haitian Footballer Sony Norde Fourth Draft Pick

Haitian soccer player, Sony Norde, active since 2008 when he first played with the Boca Juniors, was the fourth draft choice for India's Mohun Bagan A.C. Norde began life in Grand' Anse, Haiti, and made a lasting impression at the CONCACAF Men's Olympic Tournament. It was during this tournament that Norde tackled striker Clinton Colaco so aggressively, his leg was broken.


During the last six years Norde has played for several foreign teams: San Luis (as a loaner); Estudiantes de Altamira; Sheikh Russell KC; and Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi. He has amassed a total of 91 goals.

Norde performed outstandingly in one of Mohun Bagan's earliest games of the season. Playing against East Bengal F.C. during the 118th IFA Shield Semi-Final, played in Kolkata, he scored one of three goals. Norde has also played for the Haiti and Haiti U-23 national soccer teams with 12 appearances and five goals.

Norde, 25 years old, stands 5'10" and plays attacking midfielder, winger, and striker positions. His jersey number is 11. He has developed a flamboyant playing style, exhibiting speed, precision, and solid command over the ball. He is an excellent goal scorer and specializes in the free-kick maneuver.

Haiti has not made it to the soccer World Cup since 1974. In one for the history books, Haiti scored a goal and broke the two-year record of Italy's premier goalkeeper back then. Could it be Norde may be next to represent Haiti at the World Cup in 2018?
