Chicharito Hernández's great moments in the National Team: Could he be today who heads the course for Mexico?

Javier Chicharito Hernandez is a Mexican footballer and the highest goalscorer for the Mexico national team with 52 goals from over 100 caps for El Tri. He has had some great moments since making his debut in 2009.

Javier Hernández knew how to become one of the main figures, if not the most important, in the history of Mexico. With an enviable validity in the elite of world football, and paying handsomely every time he had to wear the shirt of his country, today could be one of the keys to straightening the boat.

He has played three World Cups

Hernandez has represented Mexico at three FIFA World Cups in 2010, 2014 and 2018 and has scored four World Cup goals, a record for a Mexican tied with Luis Hernandez.

He won the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup

He won the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup with Mexico, who defeated arch rivals USA 4-2 in the final. He was named the tournament's MVP and highest goal scorer with seven goals including a hat trick in the opening game against El Salvador.

He broke Jared Borgetti's record

Mexican legend Jared Borgetti was the country's highest goalscorer with 47 goals before Chicharito broke his record in 2017 and set a new one with 52 goals.

It should also be noted, and despite the fact that today it is not from the departure of those led by Gerardo Martino, who in the event that he is called to play the Qatar 2022 World Cup, he would be becoming the Mexican with the most matches and cups the world played in history. A fact that speaks for itself, and explains what it represents.
