Rogelio Funes Mori He has already received the certificate that endorses him as a Mexican, so he immediately began his process to be able to play with the Mexican team in the Gold Cup.

Rogelio Funes Mori, Monterrey forward, finished the naturalization process for days and was only waiting for the certificate that would allow him to start the process to play with the Mexican team directed by Gerardo el Tata Martino.

The attacker of the Rayados, could know ESPN Digital, has already sent the letter to the Argentine Soccer Association (AFA), in which he resigns from the Albiceleste and is expected to immediately send his documents to make the change of representative to FIFA.

Once he receives confirmation from the AFA, the Argentine by birth may make his request to change his national team to FIFA. For now, the Rayados forward can already be registered in the preliminary list for the Concacaf Gold Cup, because he has the papers that endorse him as a Mexican.

The process to receive the naturalization letter from the Mexican government was delayed, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The attacker hoped to be ready for the start of the summer, but the “certificate of Mexican nationality” was only delivered to him this afternoon.

Funes mori hopes that the process before FIFA will be agile so that it can be available for the Gold Cup, in which Mexico will seek to be champion and revalidate the nickname of “Giant of Concacaf”, which was put into question after losing the final against the United States of the Nations League.

In the event that FIFA approves the change of the player who participated in youth divisions with Albiceleste, Funes mori may represent Mexico in the Gold Cup, in the absence of Raúl Jiménez and the low productivity of footballers such as Henry Martín and Alan Pulido.
