Mexico got through their first match of this World Cup qualifying set with a 2-0 win over Costa Rica on Friday. But the handful of big injuries they had going into that match got even worse by the time it ended.
Mexico are fine overall, sitting at the top of World Cup qualifying, but the injuries keep on coming. Here is who is out for Mexico heading into the match in Trinidad & Tobago:
Marquez hurt his back in Friday's win over Costa Rica. Although it's not considered serious, coach Juan Carlos Osorio sent him back to his club.

The Mexican federation announced days before their match vs. Costa Rica that the midfielder was removed from the roster due to a right leg injury. He traveled with the team to support the team and start recovering, but he isn't ready in time to play.

Jesus "Tecatito" Corona
Has been playing lately for Porto – he scored a golazo just this weekend, in fact – but Osorio is playing it safe with the winger, who is just coming back from injury. Osorio said he wants Tecatito to stay with his club and recuperate.
He's been struggling with a back injury for months and he finally returned this weekend for Eintracht Frankfurt. Despite that, Osorio has said he thinks Fabian should continue to work his way back to 100 percent with his club rather than travel for El Tri.
Giovani dos Santos
The forward was forced out of last week's clash with the Portland Timbers after a hamstring strain and he did not feature for the Galaxy's win over Real Salt Lake over the weekend.

The Pachuca winger had to be stretched off the pitch earlier this month after a collision with USMNT defender Michael Orozco. He hasn't played since that March 3 incident, with his recovery expected to take about a month.
The Tigres winger tore his hamstring in February after a collision during a fixture vs. Pachuca, but he isn't yet 100 percent and hasn't returned to action for Tigres yet.
