Watch Tecatito Corona dribble through half Venezuela's defense, win Mexico's group

BY foxsports • June 13, 2016

Jesus Manuel "Tecatito" Corona is one of the brightest young talents in Mexico. And considering how flush El Tri are with brilliant young players, that's saying something.

Take one look at this goal he scored to earn Mexico a 1-1 draw with Venezuela to win Group C at Copa America Centenario and you'll see why everyone loves him so much.

That's five players he went through. He beat half of Venezuela's outfield players and then the goalkeeper all by himself.

And a minute before that, he dribbled through the Venezuela defense too, only for his curling shot to miss the far post by inches. Venezuela knew exactly what Tecatito could do to them and were still helpless to stop it with half of the team trying their best to keep him out.

There's a reason Mexico love him. There's a reason Twente were so excited when they bought him from Monterrey in 2013. There's a reason Porto spent more than €10 million to buy him last summer and slapped a €50 million release clause on him.

This kid is for real. Now it's just a matter of doing this some more on the big stage so the world can see what Mexico, the Netherlands and Portugal have been watching for years.
