Mexico’s World Cup hopes are in serious danger after the host team suffered a 3-0 loss Thursday against Haiti in Concacaf W Championship group play.

The defeat comes days after a stunning 1-0 loss to Jamaica in the team’s qualifying opener.

A pair of buried penalty kicks by Roselord Borgella and Nerilia Mondesir and a stunning free-kick from Sherly Jeudy allowed Haiti to seal the empathic shutout over Mexico.

Sitting at the bottom of Group A entering the final match of the group stage, Mexico must beat the United States and receive help for another shot at a World Cup berth. The third-place finisher from Group A will move on to FIFA’s inter-confederation play-offs next February, which will feature 10 teams competing for three World Cup spots.

If Haiti and Jamaica tie, then Mexico would be eliminated even with a win against the USWNT. A tie or a win by Haiti would clinch the first-ever World Cup berth for that team.

Should Jamaica lose to Haiti, Mexico would need to win by any margin to secure third place in the group and a spot in next year’s play-in tournament.

If Haiti loses, Mexico would have to not only beat the USWNT but rack up the goals, as the tiebreaker against Haiti would come down to goal differential. Haiti will enter Monday with an even goal differential, while Mexico will enter at minus-four.

The USWNT has yet to let in a goal during the tournament, defeating Haiti 3-0 and Jamaica 5-0, making the prospect of a Mexico win — let alone a multi-goal victory very unlikely.

Mexico has made three previous appearances in the World Cup, first in 1999 and then again in 2011 and 2015.

The Concacaf W Championship hosts will look to salvage their World Cup dreams when they play the USWNT at 10 p.m. ET Monday on Paramount+.
