Two years after winning the Under-17 World Cup in Peru, Mexico has failed to qualify for the latest tournament. In CONCACAF, this is almost incomprehensible. They were beaten out by Honduras and Haiti, which had not qualified for ANY FIFA world championship since the senior World Cup 33 years ago. Mexico didn't lose any games in its four-team group, but didn't win any either (three ties).
The other three CONCACAF representatives to this summer's tournament in South Korea will be determined April 28 through May 6 in Jamaica. The field includes the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, T&T and Jamaica. The U.S. is the only country in the world to have qualified for every u-17 final.
