The one time he was really troubled, on Boucaud's first-half shot, Orozco did excellently to keep it out.
Came up against Jones and struggled slightly, but managed to help keep a clean sheet.
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.
Lots of good service, often playing more as a winger than a fullback. Served up the ball which Jimenez put in for the winner.
Wearing the armband, he was up to the task, winning the ball and keeping possession well.
Ever-present, always involved, and a big part of the passing game Mexico put together.
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.
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.
Hardly put a foot wrong all night, recovering the ball well and moving the ball with ease.
R. Márquez Lugo
Covered lots of ground. Nothing special, but kept the offense moving by doing the little things correctly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
R. 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.
Like the rest of the team, helped keep shape well and hit out on the counter.
Powerful shot from top of box that pulled a great save from Orozco.
Played out of position, the veteran had some better moments going forward but had trouble dealing with Mexico's attack down the wing.
Physical in the midfield, but unable to really disrupt Mexico's rhythm. His passing left a lot to be desired as well.
A dominant presence aerially and physically, he was too often just outnumbered and isolated up front.
A fantastically industrious evening for the journeyman striker.
Doggedly hard-working all night.
