India-bound Mexico team members and their families are safe after the devastating earthquake and their FIFA U-17 World Cup team will reach Kolkata on October 4.

"All the families of U-17 Mexican delegation are fine, thank god," Mexico team's press coordinator Valvanera Garcia Cuevas told PTI in an email communication.

The team, who are preparing for the U-17 World Cup in Spain, will arrive in Kolkata as per schedule on October 4 for their group F matches at the Salt Lake Stadium.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck southern Mexico, 123 km from Mexico City, in Puebla state on September 19.

At least 230 people have been killed across the region, even as the rescue crews continue to search for survivors.

Mexico are clubbed with England, Chile, and Iraq in Group F in the upcoming tournament
