Jesus 'Tecatito' Corona leaves Mexico camp for personal reasons

Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar discuss the challenges Belgium and Poland will present to Juan Carlos Osorio and Mexico.

BRUSSELS -- Mexico forward Jesus "Tecatito" Corona has left the national team camp to return to Portugal for personal reasons.

Corona, 24, had been set to feature for Mexico in Friday's friendly against Belgium and Monday's game against Poland.

A Mexico statement said: "Jesus Manuel Corona has left the Mexican national team due to his wife having complications in her pregnancy and unfortunately losing the baby."

Porto player Corona spoke to Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio and federation officials, who organised his return to Portugal.

"It really hit him hard," Mexico's director of national teams Dennis te Kloese said. "He was really looking forward to these two games close to his home in Europe."

Reports also broke on Thursday that Mexico internationals and Porto players Hector Herrera and Diego Reyes had been implicated in the recent Paradise Papers scandal.
