    The one time he was really troubled, on Boucaud's first-half shot, Orozco did excellently to keep it out.

    J. Huiqui

    Wearing the armband, he was up to the task, winning the ball and keeping possession well.

    A. Aldrete

    The America fullback did his chances no harm with a nice night. Had one of the more difficult jobs up against Cyrus and did it well. Served dangerous crosses into the box on the overlap.

    Juan Carlos Valenzuela

    Came up against Jones and struggled slightly, but managed to help keep a clean sheet.

  • Miguel Arturo Layun

    Miguel Arturo Layun

    Lots of good service, often playing more as a winger than a fullback. Served up the ball which Jimenez put in for the winner.

  • C. Peña

    C. Peña

    Disappointing for the most part and not as involved as he'd like to be with a chance to showcase his talents, but his well-struck shot from distance was only just saved by Williams.

  • L. Montes

    L. Montes

    Ever-present, always involved, and a big part of the passing game Mexico put together.

  • A. Castro

    A. Castro

    Hardly put a foot wrong all night, recovering the ball well and moving the ball with ease.

  • R. Jiménez

    R. Jiménez

    Dangerous with the final touch, he went close a few times, and hit the woodwork, before scoring the winner with a scuffed touch past Williams.

  • M. Fabián

    M. Fabián

    Provided some dangerous penetration early, including one run where he dribbled deep into the box and won a corner, and remained one of Mexico's most dangerous attacking options.

    Rafael Márquez Lugo

    Covered lots of ground. Nothing special, but kept the offense moving by doing the little things correctly.

    Replaced Pena in the second half, and was an improvement..

    J. Orozco

    Came on as a late sub and got between Powers and the ball as Jimenez touched in the winner.

  • Jan-Michael Williams

    4.00

    Jan-Michael Williams

    A more than solid game in goal, he made plenty of saves, his brightest when he touched away a potential Pena wonder goal. Didn't deserve to give up the late winner.

  • Daniel Cyrus

    3.00

    Daniel Cyrus

    Played the marauding fullback role to decent effect, bombing forward on counterattacks. His long throws provided T&T's best chances. Also used his recovery speed to good effect on the tricky Fabian.

  • Seon Power

    2.50

    Seon Power

    Good in the air at both ends, and his early header was one of Trinidad & Tobago's closest looks on goal. He was caught on the wrong side of his mark when Mexico scored.

  • Aubrey David

    Aubrey David

    Like the rest of the team, helped keep shape well and hit out on the counter.

  • Radanfah Abu Bakr

    Radanfah Abu Bakr

    Strong in defense, typified by a brave diving stop in the first half after a poor clearance from the T&T defense. Was too slow to intercept Layun's cross for the winner.

  • C. Edwards

    C. Edwards

    Played out of position, the veteran had some better moments going forward but had trouble dealing with Mexico's attack down the wing.

  • Andre Boucaud

    Andre Boucaud

    Powerful shot from top of box that pulled a great save from Orozco.

  • Keon Daniel

    Keon Daniel

    Physical in the midfield, but unable to really disrupt Mexico's rhythm. His passing left a lot to be desired as well.

  • Kenwyne Jones

    3.50

    Kenwyne Jones

    A dominant presence aerially and physically, he was too often just outnumbered and isolated up front.

    Darryl Roberts

    Doggedly hard-working all night.

    A fantastically industrious evening for the journeyman striker.

    A late sub. Not enough time to do anything.
