Qatar World Cup 2022: “The Mexican national team should call Chicharito” the statement of Héctor Moreno

Héctor Moreno talked to CBS for its podcast called “In soccer we trust” where he stated strong words related to Chicharito’s case. The central back knows the importance that represents Javier Hernández to the Mexican national team as the all-time leading goal scorer for el Tri.

The Aztec squad struggled during the Concacaf qualifiers despite earning its place in the Qatar World Cup. One of the main problems that lacked in the Mexican national team to achieve its spot in the next World Cup was the lack of scoring goals. With all the problems around el Tri after not calling-up Chicharito, the Monterrey player, Héctor Moreno, talked about the topic.

What did Héctor say?

"I believe that Mexico doesn't have the luxury to leave this kind of player out, who can give you something. I don't know if as a starter or not a starter, it's not my job but I just want him to be able to compete with us, to be part of the last 26 players who will be in the World Cup.", Said Moreno, "I believe everybody who is Mexican is hoping to play for us in the final list so I hope that he gets this opportunity and when I spoke with him last, he's open to do that, he wants to do that."

Moreno is probably right. El Tri cannot afford to leave Chicharito at home when their top scorer in qualifying was Jimenez with only three goals. No other Mexican striker scored more than two goals and you know what you are going to get with someone who has seen and done it all like Chicharito. The lack of scoring has already hurt Mexico in important moments, as the team creates good chances but the strikers have not finished them, so their expected goals scored during qualifying was 22.45, more than five goals more than they actually scored.
