CARY, North Carolina -- After dropping their Group A opening matches, Mexico and Trinidad & Tobago try to get back on track when they face off in the 2018 Concacaf Women's Championship on Sunday night.
Both teams need three points in the match at Sahlen's Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park to keep their hopes alive of reaching next week's semifinals in Frisco, Texas.
They also need to wipe out sizable goal differentials after losing here on Thursday night. Mexico went down to a 6-0 defeat to the United States, T&T 3-0 to Panama.
The Mexicans has lost once to the Soca Princesses in the CWC, sporting a 4W-2D-1L mark. They also lead the all-time series between the sides, 8W-3D-1L.
Trinidad's lone win over Mexico came at the first CWC in 1991 in Haiti, a 3-1 victory, which also was the Mexicans' only loss to a Caribbean team.
In their most recent meeting during the Central American and Caribbean Games in Colombia this past summer, Mexico recorded a 5-1 triumph as Monica Ocampo scored twice.
Mexico also won their last CWC encounter with T&T, a 4-2 extratime win in Chester, Pennsylvania in 2014. Charlyn Corral and Ocampo each recorded a brace for the winners.
The U.S. meets Panama in the first game of the doubleheader.
