Over the last few years Jose de Jesus Corona has earned a reputation as one of the best goalkeepers in Mexican football. The custodian already has top-level international experience, having been reserve goalkeeper to Oswaldo Sanchez at the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™, and has proven to be a consistent performer whenever he has played for El Tri.

 

However, Corona has yet to make the Mexican No1 jersey his own and is currently involved in an intriguing tussle for supremacy with Guillermo Ochoa, who is likewise in outstanding form with French club Ajaccio. 

 

Coach Jose Manuel de la Torre has alternated between the two since taking the reins of the national side and is likely to keep everyone guessing until Mexico's first game at Brazil 2013.
