There is no news about the activity of Rogelio Funes Mori with the Mexican national team, there is no reason to be surprised at how well he is responding to ‘Golden Twin‘in his first commitments with the Aztec team.
At the beginning there were many doubts and questions, in fact, there are still them, and we will only have to wait for the player of Argentine origin to enter a small losing streak without scoring, so that his retractors come on him.
Just five games and records four annotations with the national jersey, what could be expected from the all-time top scorer for the Rayados de Monterrey? Did anyone expect less? I do not. He had only one preparation match before making his official debut in an international competition and he did so with a scoring debut.
It is true that the Nigeria that was presented in California was not the best synodal, but it starts with something, the Gold Cup rivals do not offer the best qualities, far from it, we will also have to wait for more senior rivals to come, to that the comments full of simplicity of the mass media or journalists who will look for anything to demerit their commitment with selection do not come.
And it is that, you also have to value the effort and value that represents wanting to wear the shirt of a country in which you were not originally born, the commitment to Funes mori It is due to the good reception it has had in the country in recent years and with that it has been enough for his wish to be to wear the Tricolor shirt.
One of the things, in fact, that should be recognized on many things, his call to be the starting striker of Mexico was adjusted with the low level and few options that there are in Mexico as center forward,
The undisputed holder, Raul Jimenez he is in recovery and little by little he is picking up pace with his team to return to activity officially.
Javier HernandezThat he was having a good time was not required, we still don’t know why, but hey, at the end of the day it doesn’t matter anymore, because having come playing very well and scoring 10 goals with him LA Galaxy He fell into an injury and has not played for five games, practically since the Gold Cup began, until today and it is still not known when he will return to 100%.
While, Alan Pulido Y Henry Martin are next on the list for the Tricolor offensive, Polished acts as a substitute for Funes mori Y Martin is a starter at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Add to that the lack of commitment and disinterest of Carlos candle for representing Mexico, he does not leave without many options, so, right now, there is no time to be subtracting and the contribution of Rogelio It is predicted to be a lot in the short, medium and perhaps long term.
Even, at this point, I would dare to name him as a firm candidate to attend the Qatar World Cup 2022, obviously, he is a key and trusted player for Gerardo Martino, has no more than intentions to add, so that, together with Raul Jimenez maybe they are the two stellar forwards (obviously waiting for the little more than a year left for the fair), for the next World Cup.
And not only that, Funes moriWith the level he has and we know him, he may be considered by El Tri for a few more years and possibly join the select group of the best naturalized who have worn the green in history.
