"Herrera has played all bar four minutes of Mexico’s five matches so far and fired off 18 shots."

Back Hector Herrera to score at any time in USA v Mexico @ 6.511/2

USA or Mexico will join Italy and Argentina as this summer's continental champions on Sunday when the CONCACAF Gold Cup final is held in Paradise, Nevada.

It is a repeat of the 2019 final, won 1-0 by the Mexicans, and El Tri are favourites to win again, chalked up at 6/5 to win in 90 minutes and 4/7 to lift the trophy.

Sadly some of these nations' best players won't be on display. Christian Pulisic opted out, while Raul Jimenez is only just returning to fitness after his horrific head injury sustained in November.

Mexico also lost Hirving Lozano to a mid-tournament injury but the absence of some of their biggest goal threats appears to have paved the way for midfielder Hector Herrera to get forward more often from his midfield role and he's a player very much on the radar ahead of this match.

He managed two on target against Honduras in their quarter-final and another two against a decent Canada side in Thursday's semi-final, the second of which found the net to send his side through.

Even taking into account the level of opposition, Herrera's shot output is impressive given he managed only 13 in his 26 appearances (admittedly many were as sub) for Atletico last season. That helps show his more advanced role for his national side.

Shots markets would have been nice for this one, alas none were available at time of writing, but 11/2 in the anytime goalscorer market looks chunky.

While the 2019 game between these two was tight, there have been plenty of goals in other recent meetings. Indeed the pair met in the delayed CONCACAF Nations League final in June, a game the US won 3-2 in extra time after a 2-2 draw in 90 minutes.

There have also been 3-2 and 2-1 wins for Mexico in other recent competitive games, plus a 1-1 draw.

It's therefore far from a given that this will be a defensive, tense affair and so Herrera looks worth a poke given his eye for goal right now.

Mexico's Rogelio Funes Mori passed through FC Dallas on his way to stardom | MLSSoccer.com

MLSsoccer.com 01 August, 2021 - 01:05pm

The Mexico national team’s Gold Cup squad is rich with talent, and with the United States electing to bring a relatively unproven squad to the tournament, pundits have concluded that El Tri have more weapons at their disposal in Sunday’s final (8:30 pm ET | FS1, Univision, TUDN) at Allegiant Stadium outside Las Vegas.

But one name rang out more than any other in Saturday’s press availabilities: Rogelio Funes Mori.

“I said already, he is one of the best players in the tournament,” US men’s national team coach Gregg Berhalter of the Monterrey dangerman. “Really like the player, really like what type of striker he is, lethal in the penalty box … and he's a handful. And for us, it's going to be a challenge.”

It’s not all that often a national team faces a fierce rival whose most dangerous player could well be wearing their own colors instead. But that scenario has been discussed and debated for the past decade about Funes Mori and his twin brother Ramiro, an Argentina international defender who's currently playing for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

The duo spent much of their childhoods in Arlington, Texas after an economic crisis drove their family out of Argentina; their father Miguel was an aspiring pro footballer in his younger days and vowed to keep them playing the beautiful game in their new surroundings. Rogelio vaulted into wider attention when he won Sueño MLS, a nationwide talent search competition aired on Univision, in 2008.

Both were invited to join FC Dallas’ newborn youth system, with now-Orlando City SC boss Oscar Pareja – then a young coach helping build what would later become MLS’ flagship academy – among those to highly rate them. That’s where the story gets cloudier.

The Funes Mori boys quickly became the subject of intense scouting and recruitment from multiple big clubs around the world, and did not stick with FCD long. Some allege they were simply not offered the opportunity at a professional contract extended to most Sueño winners (whose ranks also include LA Galaxy fullback Jorge “Sueño” Villafaña). Others say documentation issues prevented that process from proceeding as planned.

Is there a world in which “RFM” came of age as a footballer in the United States instead, and perhaps would’ve chosen to represent the Stars and Stripes? That’s a fascinating hypothetical to ponder, albeit one the current USMNT themselves have little time to entertain.

“No matter who plays, we have young center backs and we're going to have to make it difficult for him,” said Berhalter of Funes Mori. “Excellent player, history of scoring, typical No. 9 type of player. And for us, it's how do we make it as difficult as possible for him. It's going to be a good test, a difficult test. But I can guarantee our guys will be up for the challenge.”

Unless the USMNT spring a surprise like a return to a three-player backline, it’s expected that the green center-back duo of Miles Robinson and James Sands and Matt Turner, a goalkeeper early in his own international career, will be tasked with blunting Mexico’s chief attacking threat with the region’s top trophy on the line. And they’ve earned the chance, posting the event’s best defensive record to date.

“I won't get too far into the plan for stopping him, however, watching him in this tournament and watching him over the last few seasons, the guy is just a killer when he's inside the box,” said Turner on Saturday. “He finds space, he's got a great touch and he can finish right foot, left foot and with his head. So we understand that he’s a very dangerous player and we're looking forward to a great match.”
