Soca Princesses fail to qualify for World Cup after defeat to Mexico

Trinidad and Tobago's Soca Princesses will not be going to the World Cup in France, after a second straight defeat in the CONCACAF group stage of qualifying.

T&T lost 4-1 to Mexico on Sunday, following a 3-0 defeat to Panama last week.

Mexico needed the win to stay alive in Group A with one more match to go in the stage.

Charlyn Corral scored twice.

Her first goal came in the 33rd minute when Trinidad goalkeeper Kimika Forbes popped away a shot right into Corral's path for the easy tap in. Jonelle Cato tied the game with a penalty kick in the 50th minute.
