Mexico is turning to Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez to help them put the ball in the net. The Manchester United striker is lethal when the ball is in play. Many times Chicharito has saved ManU with quick wit in the area. Some call him a “goal poacher.” But there is no doubt that he can change the game in seconds. Don’t believe it? See his record against EPL side Chelsea FC. The 26 year-old has made 62 appearances with El Tri and broke the net on 35 occasions. Hernandez will have to awaken during Brazil 2014 to break the net. He is no stranger to scoring at the world cup, he had a goal against France, and against Argentina at the 2010 South Africa games. At the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup he scored against Italy and Japan.
Mexico forwards analysis:
Some would say that Mexico arrives with “wet powder” to Brazil 2014. Along with Raul Jimenez, player not mentioned here, the Mexicans are strong on attack. However, they have been lacking in goals. Despite that, they managed a strong showing against Israel and Ecuador in recent tune-ups. A good game against Portugal gives Mexico the confidence that they need to have a good performance in Brazil. The Mexicans can still be a surprise, even if they had to requalify to get to South America. So, it’s game on!!!
