This Sunday the Tijuana vs Cruz Azul match will be played, from Matchday 1 of the Clausura 2023 of the Liga MX, where the cement workers will look for the tenth star of the championship.

However, its captain, Julio César "El Cata" Domínguez is not called up.

"El Cata" was left out of the call after the controversy generated by celebrating his son's birthday with the theme alluding to the drug trafficker "El Chapo" Guzmán and his criminal organization.

Fans asked the sports club to sanction the soccer player, even removing him from their ranks for contributing to the apology of the crime. In social networks he was called to boo him every time he takes the ball.

This is the call for tonight's duel:

The call will be attended by Jesús Corona, Sebastián Jurado, Joaquín Martínez, Alonso Escoboza, Juan Escobar, Ramiro Funes, Jordan Silva, Rafael Guerrero, Erik Lira, Alexis Gutiérrez, Ignacio Rivero, Rodrigo Huescas, Carlos Rodríguez, Rafael Baca, Jorge García, Cristian Jiménez, Gonzalo Carneiro, Christian Tabó, Michael Estrada, Carlos Rotondi, under the direction of Raúl Gutiérrez.

The directive has not yet revealed if his absence responds to a temporary issue, if it is related to the controversy of the celebration, or if the footballer has already been discharged.

Club Deportivo Cruz Azul defender Julio César "Cata" Domínguez apologized for having released photos of the drug-themed children's party he organized for his son on the occasion of his 12th birthday.

In a statement posted on his Instagram account, the soccer player acknowledged that the images "do not contribute to creating a better impression of Mexico" and defended that neither he nor his family promote or justify "any type of violence."

“We are people who promote sports in the new generations, in addition to the values ​​and principles of an exemplary institution, such as the Cruz Azul Soccer Club,” said Domínguez.
