No Mexico in Egypt...

With two losses in their first two Group B games, Mexico has been mathematically eliminated from the CONCACAF Championship and the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.

El tricolores lost 1-0 to hosts T&T on Saturday and 2-0 to Canada last night, leaving the 10-time regional U-20 champions with zero points and just one game remaining. Because of a 0-0 draw between T&T and Costa Rica, both of those teams have four points and are unreachable for Mexico.

Mexico, which has reached the U-20 World Cup 10 times – second most in CONCACAF after the U.S., failed to qualify for third time in the last five tries.
