Real Salt Lake midfielder Jean Alexandre and his Haitian National Team might not have gotten the result they had hoped for yesterday against Argentina, but you can bet that the 1-4 loss to the Albicelestes in Buenos Aires was an experience that the squad not only wanted, but needed, as the country’s soccer federation continues to rebound from January’s deadly earthquake. Alexandre earned his 5th senior appearance for les Grenadiers, playing the first 58 minutes before being subbed out of the friendly. The 23-year-old is expected to rejoin his RSL teammates on Friday and should be available for selection for Saturday’s match-up against the Philadelphia Union.
