Rogelio Funes Mori continues to draw attention to mexican soccer. The Twin returned to be a figure with him Tricolor, now in triumph before Guatemala on the gold Cup and little by little the hearts of the fans are being won.
However, in Argentina, the news of his double caused more mockery than pride for the youth squad of River, whom hundreds of users on social networks have scoffed at for choosing the Mexican selection by ensuring that his level did not give him to be with the Albiceleste.
Media like Olé, TyC Sports, among others, took up the news of the great game of Funes and his subsequent statements, where he assured that the only place where he wanted to play was with Mexico, which unleashed the wave of negative comments against him.
Most of the jokes made reference to the poor level that there is in soccer Concacaf, where according to them, only there Funes mori could shine. Others shot him for betraying Argentina and the famous ‘chicanas’ of the fans of Boca Juniors that reminded him that in his country’s soccer he only shone in B, when the Millionaire descended.
They also made reference to the Islands that participate in tournaments or qualifying rounds of Concacaf, referring to them as “Bikini Bottom“or”Pirates of the Caribbean’.
Argentina also lacks a 9
