Javier Hernandez has been on fire for Mexico at the Gold Cup and today’s goal may just be the most important as Mexico came from behind to beat neighbours Guatemala.

Guatemala took the lead after 5 minutes and could have seen their lead extended before the break but changes from Mexico at half time made the difference as they drew level on 48 minutes before Hernandez scored with a reactionary effort on the 66th minute to send Mexico into the Gold Cup semi final.

Following his winner Hernandez said,

“The goal was just instinct. I saw the ball at my feet and put the ball in the net.

“This time it was different than the other games when we scored first. We went in and we knew we had to work hard in the second half to get our chances.”

    Have to agree with Dave here (without the potential xenophobia of course 😉 ) I think people are confusing being exciting to watch and hugely likeable with being brilliant.
    If he’s not scoring what does he give us? The likes of Rooney, Drogba and Van Persie are creating goals if they’re not scoring them. If Hernandez doesn’t score we’re effectively playing with 10 men.
    He’s young and still relatively new to the league so hopefully he will improve his hold up play, passing etc but until then he’s just a good goalscorer for me, our budget Inzaghi. As long as he pushes on and scores 30 next season then that’s fine, nothing worng with just scoring if he’s getting that many.
    Love the guy (who doesn’t?) but also appreciate his limitations
