The lack of goal in the Senior National Team, Tata Martino tries to compensate with Funes Mori; while the Olympic Selection has a more extensive range of options
At the same time Gerardo Tata Martino seeks to summon the naturalized Mexican Rogelio Funes Mori, to solve the problem of lack of goals, in the Olympic Mexican National Team coached by Jaime Lozano have found a way to score in all their games in 2021, without depending on a forward center.
The U23 team has scored in all their matches and has an average of two goals per game in 2021, the year in which the Olympic Games are organized; while the team of Gerardo Martino he has not even reached the average of one goal per commitment (0.83) this year and his team has not been able to celebrate scores in two of the five games he has played.
In the team of Gerardo Martino accuse of the lack of a bully center forward, that is why they have taken advantage of the naturalization of Rogelio Funes Mori, as a placebo to replace the loss of Raúl Jiménez, the scorer in the Tata era, and try to find the goal again, at least in the next Gold Cup.
In Jaime Lozano’s team they came up with the formula to not depend on a center forward. In the eight games they have played in 2021, the Olympic Mexican National Team he has scored 16 goals and only two of those scores were authored by the footballer who plays in the position of nine in the area (José Juan Macías and Eduardo Aguirre).
The goals of the Tri Olímpico have been distributed among 10 players, Sebastián Córdova stands out with four goals and Jesús Ricardo Ángulo, along with Uriel Antuna, with two annotations each.
In the team of Gerardo Martino, the celebrations have focused on a footballer, Hirving el Chucky Lozano, who without being a center forward has scored three of the five goals that the team has in 2021, while the rest were courtesy of Diego Lainez and Jesús el Tecatito Corona, no center forward.
Jaime Lozano’s team began to play without a center forward because José Juan Macías was injured prior to the Concacaf Pre-Olympic and the team settled down to compete without an area nine. In the Tricolor de Martino he has not been able to overcome the depression caused by the absence of Raúl Jiménez.
The Tri Olímpico seeks to take Henry Martín to the Olympic Games, to have a man of experience in that area, if necessary, while in Gerardo Martino’s Selection they hope that Rogelio Funes Mori can play Gold Cup and solve your goal problem.
