Mexicans Abroad: Tecatito scores Golazo for Porto
Jesus Manuel “Tecatito” Corona showed off his incredible technique, first touch, and shooting skill in Porto’s 4-0 win over Vitoria Setubal.
On Saturday, Tecatito chested down a clearance off a free kick before striking with his left foot a shot into the far corner to put Porto up on the night. It was another strong performance as Corona looks to build momentum ahead of the March El Tri friendly matches in the U.S., or CONCACAF Nations League matches this summer.
