Cruz Azul's Corona has suspension extended
[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Cruz Azul's Mexican national team goalkeeper, Jesus Corona, already suspended from Tuesday
night's first leg of the Concacaf Champions League final against Toluca (live on Fox Sports 2 at 8 p.m. ET) for his part in an altercation following the second leg of the semifinals against Tijuana in
Mexico City, has had his suspension extended two games by Concacaf.
Corona's three-game suspension will cover both legs of the CCL final and the first game of the Club World Cup -- if
Cruz Azul qualifies. He received a red card after the game, and an additional two-game suspension was levied as punishment for unsporting behavior, specifically in the use of provocative language and
gesticulations employed with the motive of inciting an opponent.
Cruz Azul was also fined an undisclosed amount for the incident, which took place following the second leg that Cruz Azul
won 2-0 to prevail 2-1 on aggregate over Xolos.
Dr. Alfonso Jimenez Vega of Cruz Azul was also handed a two-game suspension.
