Cruz Azul were beating Toluca 3-2 but were denied victory when Leonardo Fernandez hit a 95th-minute equaliser in the Week 4 of the Liga MX.

Fernandez's late goal was partly down to a mistake by goalkeeper Jesus Corona - and the home crowd were not pleased with the veteran shot stopper. After the game reporters asked Cruz Azul’s coach, Robert Siboldi, if Corona will start next week when the team hosts Pachuca.

“We will analyze the situation during this week's training sessions and I will do what is best for the team”, Siboldi explained. Fans are demanding that Sebastian Jurado should be the team's first choice goalkeeper from now on.

Siboldi added that Corona is the first to be annoyed: “Of course he is very affected by what happened. It is also true that Fernandez struck the ball with a lot of power and even though it looked easy for our goalkeeper, it wasn't, believe me. Corona has all our support.”
