Goalkeeper Jose De Jesus Corona has been removed from Mexico's 23-man Gold Cup roster after being involved in a fight during Sunday's the Cruz Azul-Monarcas Morelia Liguilla match. He has been replaced by Monterrey's Jonathan Orozco. FMF State of Mind, SB Nation's Mexican soccer blog, had speculated that Chivas goalkeeper Luis Michel would be the next keeper in line for the call-up:
We asked earlier who should replace Corona in the national team squad, and the response was overwhelming in favor of Chivas Guadalajara's Luis Michel, who did not get the call-up. Michel has been brilliant lately for Chivas and is generally considered to be above Orozco in the pecking order for the national team's No. 1 shirt, so it's safe to assume that Michel was not called up because El Tri want to start him in Copa America. In Gold Cup, he would have simply been Guillermo Ochoa's backup.
Orozco helped lead Monterrey to the CONCACAF Champions League championship.
