Tijuana midfielder Joe Corona has been voted the newcomer of the year for the Mexico Apertura championship.

The Mexican federation said Corona missed the award ceremony on Monday because he is training with the United States' Under-23 team, which is preparing for Olympic qualifying.

The 21-year-old is the son of a Mexican father and a Salvadoran mother. He was born in the United States and is eligible to play for one of the three countries at the national team level.
