Rogelio Gabriel Funes Mori (born 5 March 1991) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Liga MX club Monterrey.

His identical twin brother Ramiro is also a footballer who plays as a defender for La Liga club Villarreal and for Argentina national team.

Early life

Funes Mori was born in Mendoza, Argentina. In 2001, he moved to Arlington, Texas and attended Workman Junior High and Arlington High School where he was coached by the Coach Jeffrey Waldrop playing football with his twin brother, Ramiro.[1] The twins' father, Miguel, played professional football in Argentina with clubs such as Independiente Rivadavia and Club Atlético Argentino in the 1980s.[2] Funes Mori scored 40 goals in the 2008 season leading his team to District Champions and Area Finalist with a record of 24–2–1. Gabriel and Ramiro, who are identical twins, also played several seasons for the Associated Soccer Group (ASG) 91' team. His coach with ASG was Uche Okafor.[3]

After that, Chelsea scout Jorge Alvial scouted Rogelio and Ramiro on the first day of the reality show Sueño MLS, and spoke to his parents about a future tryout at Chelsea.[4] He participated in Sueño MLS and won the contest, therefore becoming part of FC Dallas.[5][6][7]

Club career

River Plate

Funes Mori began his professional career with River Plate in the Argentine Primera División on 6 December 2009, on a 1–3 defeat against Vélez Sársfield.[8] He played the last two games of that year at home against Racing Club and away to Tigre, scoring his first goal with the club in their visit to the latter.[9][10]

In the traditional pre-season encounters for the big clubs in Argentina, the Torneos de Verano, he scored for River in a 3–1 victory over their rivals Boca Juniors in Mar del Plata's Copa Desafío.[11]

On 9 May, during the 2010 Clausura tournament, he scored his first hat-trick for River Plate in a game against Racing Club. He achieved the three goals in only 24 minutes, breaking a personal 11-match streak without scoring a goal.[12] In the last game of the tournament, the forward scored River's only goal in a 1–5 loss to Tigre at home.[13][14]

In the first game of the 2010 Apertura, he scored a 90th-minute goal following an assist from Ariel Ortega to secure a 1–0 victory over Tigre.[15] This was his third goal in three games against that team. In the third fixture, against Independiente, he scored two goals in the first half as River went on to win 3–2.[16] The forward scored his fourth goal of the season in the 1–0 victory over Arsenal de Sarandí.[17]

Benfica

On 10 August 2013, Funes Mori joined Benfica on a five-year contract. River Plate received €2 million from an investment group who kept a share of its economic right's, with Benfica receiving half, plus the sports rights.[18]

On 15 September, he made his debut for Benfica B, scoring his first goal in a Benfica shirt. On 15 March, he scored four goals for the B side against Sporting Covilhã in a 4–0 win. On 9 July 2014, he was loaned to Eskişehirspor in Turkey for one year, with the option to make the move permanent for a €3.5 million fee.[19]

Monterrey

On 12 June 2015, Funes Mori moved to Liga MX club Monterrey.[20] He made his debut in a 3–2 friendly win over Morelia, scoring in the 91st minute.[21] In his debut tournament he finished fourth-joint top scorer of the league with 11 goals.

On 6 August 2016, he scored his first hat-trick against León.[22]

In December 2017, he won the Copa MX after defeating Pachuca 1–0 in a home win.[23]

He scored his 100th goal for the club on 18 December 2019 in the Club World Cup semi-final against Premiere League club Liverpool, making it 1–1 partial at the 14th minute but culminating in a 2–1 loss.[24] After their participation at the Club World Cup, Monterrey disputed the Apertura championship finals against América. In the second leg, he scored the tying aggregate goal in order to take the match into overtime; where the winner was determined via a penalty shootout and Monterrey ultimately won 4–2.[25] He was included in the tournament's Best XI.[26]

With Monterrey's victory of the 2019–20 Copa MX, they had obtained the continental treble.[27]

International career

Funes Mori was called up by Walter Perazzo to be part of the Argentina national under-20 team that participated in the 2011 South American Youth Championship, scoring twice.[28][29]

In 2012, he made his debut for the senior national team during the Superclásico de las Américas.[30]

Early in 2019, he inquired FIFA about the possibility to play for the Mexico national team,[31] but was deemed ineligible.[32] In 2020, following a change of rules regarding naturalized players by FIFA, Funes Mori was deemed eligible to play for the Mexico national team and restated his interest.[33]
