Jesus Corona is a late scratch for Mexico's March friendlies due to injury.

SAN DIEGO -- Mexico head coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino couldn't hide his disappointment that Porto winger Jesus "Tecatito" Corona didn't travel to meet up with El Tri this international break and suggested there will be repercussions.
