Cruz Azul Goalkeeper Close To Beating Club Record

After not conceding a goal in the first five weeks of the 2015 Clausura season, Corona has accumulated 470 minutes unbeaten.

The current club record belongs to Carlos Novoa, who managed 543 minutes unbeaten in the 1983-1984 season.

“Achieving such mark is very nice but it is not only my record, it’s from the whole team as it is a reflection of a great defence and an offense that is also doing a great job,” said the goalkeeper during an interview with the Mexican media.

Corona started his career with Atlas in 2002, he later played for Tecos from 2004-09 and then for his current team Cruz Azul from 2009 onwards. He has also played on loan for Chivas during their Copa Libertadores campaign in 2005 and was one of the three over-aged players for Mexico in their gold winning performance at London 2012.
