Jesus Corona dropped from Gold Cup

A few hours ago, the Federacion Mexicana de Futbol (FMF) announced that goalkeeper Jesus Corona of Cruz Azul would be removed from the Gold Cup roster. By now I'm sure you have seen the video of Corona head-butting a Morelia assistant after the ugly brawl between Cruz Azul players and a stupid fan who invaded the field. Corona will be replaced by Jonathan Orozco of Monterrey. This is not the first time Jesus Corona was dropped from Mexico's roster before a major competition for fighting. He was also removed from the South Africa 2010 World Cup squad for a bar fight. Does that guy ever learn? Christian Gimenez, Cruz Azul's brilliant central midfielder, will be suspended six games for his beating of the stupid fan. Gimenez is from Argentina so there is no possibility of him representing his nation in international competition.
