    'Been' is missing between 'having' and 'faced'.

    Please note that there is no space before a comma.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my amendments to your post. It's important to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Capitalise proper nouns (English, Italy, Shakespeare).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The first sentence is correct. Please note the corrections made in posts 2, 3 and 4.

    • Corrected: Thanks.

    -------------------------

    The first version is the right choice if you mean that he is facing the challenge now.

    The second version is the right choice if you mean that he faced it in the past.

    If you like the second version, fix: "Having faced with." It should either be "Having faced" or "Having been faced with."

    You can't face with something. You can be faced with something, and you can face something. And you might have faced something in the past. But you can never face with it, because there's no such thing.

    It's simply wrong usage.

    jacob1985, clicking on the 'Thank' button can obviate the need for a new post saying 'Thank you', such is one of the many unwritten rules on this forum.
