[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Cruz Azul goalkeeper Jesus Corona, Mexico's likely No. 1 keeper for the World Cup, will be able to play in Wednesday's second leg of the Concacaf Champions League final against Toluca (live at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1 and Univision Deportes) after having had his supplementary suspension rescinded by a Concacaf appeals committee.

Corona was sent off during a brawl at the end of the second leg of the semifinal against Tijuana and had his suspension extended for two more games, but the appeals committee reduced the suspension to one game, which the goalkeeper has already served in the first leg of the final, which ended 0-0.

Following a review of video footage, testimony and reports of the incident, the committee said that it did not find “sufficient evidence” to warrant an additional two-game ban on top of the automatic one-game suspension for a straight red card.

Tri coach Miguel Herrera told Mexican sports daily Record that he favors Corona over French-based Guillermo Ochoa, his main rival for a starting place at the World Cup.
