According to a new report by TUDN journalist Gibran Araige, Mexican international Jesus Corona's participation with the Mexican National Team for the upcoming matches is in doubt. 

In fact "Tecatito" is still being bothered by the calf muscle injury he sustained while playing for Porto in the last few weeks of the season, according to the report. Corona is still to receive medical clearence from the National Team doctor, despite it having been almost a month since he first injured his calf. He has already been ruled out for Mexico's international friendly against Iceland this weekend, and he'll probably be unavailable for the Nations League match against Costa Rica as well, to be played on Thursday next week.

Gerardo Martino was hopeful that Corona would be at 100% by this point, but we'll probably need to wait until Gold Cup play to see him on the pitch again.
