More news about Mexican national soccer team:
The Mexican winger, despite his youth, has established himself as one of the key players in Gerardo Martino's squad.
How many games has Jesús Manuel Corona played with the Mexican National Team?
So far, Jesús Manuel "Tecatito" Corona has played 63 matches with Mexico's senior national team, the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, the 2015 and 2016 Copa América, as well as the 2015 and 2021 Gold Cup.
But in addition to these tournaments, the Mexican has played the 2019-2020 Nations League, and of course, the 2018 FIFA World Cup, so if the Mexican national soccer team achieves the qualification, "Tecatito" will reach his second World Cup.
Corona has not only maintained his place in the Mexican national team despite injuries but has also been important in numerous important moments for El Tri.
How many goals has Jesús Manuel "Tecatito" Corona scored for El Tri?
"Tecatito" has scored 10 goals so far with the Mexican national soccer team, and if all goes well, in tonight's match against the USMNT, the striker could increase his goal-scoring quota.
And this is very possible since Corona has scored brilliant goals with the Mexican national team, such as the one he scored against Ireland in a friendly match in 2017, when he received a ball almost in the middle of the field.
Instead of getting desperate, Corona calmly took the ball, got to the edge of the opponent's area, and when everyone thought he was going to send a pass, he sent an accurate shot that broke the net.
Another of his great goals with the Mexican national team was one he scored in the 2015 World Cup Qualifiers when against Honduras, a ball bounced in the area.
"Tecatito" dominated the ball and in front of the goalkeeper, he shot with power and pierced the Honduran team's net, which could only witness Corona's genius.
What is "Tecatito's" obligation to the Mexican national team?
With the squad coached by Gerardo Martino, Corona's main obligation is to score goals, and what better scenario than the Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers.
In this confederation, Corona faces opponents that, although offensively they are not very dangerous, except for the USMNT, Panama, and Costa Rica, it is their defenses that stand out.
Therefore, Jesús Manuel Corona will have to put into practice the skills he has developed at Sevilla F. C. in La Liga, in order to impose himself as one of the most lethal strikers in CONCACAF.
