i'm sure the first two are from my blood. lol. they are definately haitians.
I think Yvan is gonna play for the French U-21, a defender, he's comig up thru the ranks in the french national team. he's very young though born in 1990.
Those guys can be anything from Cameroonians to Colombians. However, if they're good, I want them Haitians
PST: Pinau, Erichot, Gagnon do not sound like Haitian last-names at all. Those are lastnames you would probably find in Martinique, Guadeloupe, and maybe Quebec (specially, Gagnon).
sorry but those guys cannot be Africans as their names do not even come close to sounding or being african.
Aren't black people dissented of Africa?
Who's to say there father did not marry a Woman from Africa?
What are you saying....Early in the 1960's their was a group of Haitian that went to Africa in the Republic of Congo to help build that country ...
hmmmmm Yvan not an african name,Erichot is most def. not an african name, let see hmmmmm Steve can be justified as an african name cuz ive seen some with kelly and chris, Pinau is not an african name, Loic is not even close to being african neither is Gagnon, Gagnon is a pure french name, I SHOULD KNOW IM FROM AFRICA SO GO READ A BOOK ON NAMES BEFORE GETTING SMART WITH ME.
Wow, are you serious??
Your saying that just from the fact that these players have none african names means they are not african??
If that's the case, how do you explain a guy with the surname Dick, representing your national team?? Dick isn't a african name is it?? Or am i mistaken??
Herbert believe it or not is a Zimbabwe name.
so i allness this kid first name is Zimbabwean but these kids both names are not even african NONE OF THEM! name one country in african that might have these names. and ill tel you how wrong you are juss to make it amusing for me and you on how wrong you are.
Oh really. I could have sworn that that name had english/french/german origins. But i guess i was wrong. Weird thing is, that while researching it, i found that every name site that had a definition of Herbert, is also mistaken because they all say its a European name. Oh well, guess they must all be wrong and you must be right
Oh and what's your take on Joseph-Antoine Bell?? Not a very african name, yet he is one of that continents greatest ever goalkeepers. Or maybe Jean-Claude Pagal, or maybe Albert Roger Miller, Richard Kingson, Thomas Hammond??? You know i could go on and on as the examples are endless, but i hope that by now you get the point. That being that even though you don't have an african name, you could still be african.
True, Bana. Zim may not know that because he's from the 'english world', a commonwealth country. Haiti in fact sent thousands of teachers to the french-speaking african countries in the 1960's to help those countries as they were gaining their independence from European powers. Congo, Guinea, Ivory Coast and many other countries have people of Haitian descent. One of my colleagues at work actually told me that in his secondary school, there were just three teachers: they were all Haitians!
are you saying Drogba should play for Haiti?
If his name was Drogla (the drug), I would say yessss
No Zim, I am not saying that ALL west-africans are Haitians. I only said that some Haitians were sent to West-Africa in the 60's therefore a west-african may have bantou last-name and he's still Haitian. So, it's a merry-go-around.
