Mexico’s Jesus Corona ruled out of 2022 World Cup

Mexico have confirmed that winger Jesus Corona will not be able to compete at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The player moved to Sevilla from Portuguese side Porto this summer, and sustained an ankle injury in August during a training session. 

However, he hasn’t been able to recover in time, and will miss out on the trip to the Middle East. “Mexican national-team staff will continue to monitor his progress, and we hope that Jesús enjoys a swift, successful return to action,” an FMF statement said
