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.
