The Mexican National Team is preparing to face multiple commitments between friendlies, the Concacaf Nations League and the 2021 Gold Cup, in addition to the fact that the Under 23 will have the challenge at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Although there is a latent problem driven by the long absence of Raúl Jiménez: the lack of center forward.
There has been talk of mutual interest between Rogelio Funes Mori and the Tri Selection for a long time, but the naturalization of the Rayados of Monterrey striker would seem closer and closer. According to information from Esto, the General Directorate of National Teams headed by Gerardo Torrado accelerated the Argentine's registration process.
According to the same source, Gerardo Martino's concern about the lack of central attackers in the national team caused the coach to order the managers to advance strongly in the procedures for the payroll that must be presented between June 20 and 22, facing the Concacaf Gold Cup.
In the previous to the Final Four of the League of Nations, Tata only has Henry Martín and Alan Pulido in that position, since they still do not want to risk Lobo de Tepejí. On his part and as is known, Chicharito Hernández continues to be avoided by the strategist despite his good present with the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.
Rogelio Funes Mori, who is very loved by Mexicans due to his great scoring power, began his nationalization procedures in March of this 2021, and with the process still slow due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the FMF directors step on the accelerator to speed up the process that can give alternatives to the national team. If this situation is confirmed, Martino would enlist him for the tournament.
