Mexico played their first qualifying games and Funes Mori received criticism for not scoring, but they did not worry the forward since he mentioned that he knows how to live with them.
Rogelio Funes Mori acknowledged that “it is nothing that would take my sleep away” from the criticism of the Mexican National Team, after accumulating five games without scoring and questioning his continuity in Gerardo Tata Martino’s team.
“I will always be criticized and I understand it, because from the first moment I wanted to be in the National Team I knew it would be like that. I know how to live with criticism. It is nothing that takes away the dream of continuing in the Mexican National Team and I will always continue in the same way, as I have done throughout my career. Keep going, improving and growing as a player and soccer player, “said Rogelio Funes Mori, Monterrey striker and Mexican national team.
Funes Mori became a Mexican national, after resigning from the Albiceleste team, and was summoned by Tata Martino to the Gold Cup. The Rayados forward had a regular start, but in recent games he has lacked forcefulness, something that demands him the fans of the Tricolor.
“I’m very happy. Obviously I would have liked to do better, but that’s the way this sport is. Sometimes you get these bad streaks and you have to move on. I have always come out ahead in my entire career and I think this is one more goal that I will overcome, “said the Mexican attacker.
Despite the lack of forcefulness, the coaching staff of the Mexican National Team assured that it continues to trust Rogelio Funes Mori and is expected to be considered in future calls.
“Yes. Obviously, from the first moment that I am in the National Team, my teammates and coaching staff let me know, that I am confident, that I am well, happy, nothing will take away the illusion of continuing in the National Team and keep improving. “
