In this way, the Mexican winger and international with the Mexican National Team is rewarding the confidence that Julen Lopetegui has had in him.
And this day, at least partially, Sevilla is winning with a score of 1-2 to Levante thanks to the talent of the player who grew up at home in Monterrey of Liga MX.
This is how Jesús Manuel "Tecatito" Corona scored twice to give Sevilla the lead over Levante
The first goal for "Tecatito" came in the 14th minute when the Nervionense recovered a ball in the midfield and sent a pass to the right flank to Lucas Ocampos, who drove down the right flank with total freedom.
As soon as he reached the opponent's area, he sent a precise cross that fell to Jesús Manuel Corona, who headed the ball in to make it 0-1 and give Sevilla the lead.
However, the Granota team was not going to sit back and get a penalty, to try to even the score. The penalty was taken by José Luis Morales Nogales in the 22nd minute, making the score 1-1.
But "Tecatito" was not going to let the lead he had achieved be diluted, so at minute 27, the Ocampos-Tecatito duo was once again lethal, as the former sent across to the head of the Mexican.
This time Corona was unable to head it in the right way because he had two defenders marking him, but the ball bounced on the field and Tecatito took advantage of the rebound to shoot with his left foot, to make it 1-2 on the scoreboard.
In this way, Corona has just scored his first brace in La Liga, a tournament in which the player arrived full of illusions, which today became a reality.
El Tecatito in La Liga: a promise that came true
Since the rumors of Jesús Manuel Corona's arrival at Sevilla in La Liga began, the soccer world began to create a sea of speculation.
And many people thought that the arrival of the player would not bring any change to Lopetegui's club, however, he had already spoken of his interest in the Mexican winger.
"I have always spoken that Mexican players, including 'Tecatito', are players of a very high level, he is in a very good team and of course, he has the level to play in other leagues. From there, he will dictate what the market dictates and what can happen in the future," said the Nervión tactician at the time.
And today against Sevilla, the great promise that Tecatito was, has just become a reality, with his brace against Levante.
