Javier Hernandez scored to move within two goals of Jared Borgetti at the top of Mexico’s all-time top scorer list and snaffle El Tri a narrow win over Chile in their final pre-Copa America warm-up friendly on Wednesday evening.

Chicharito quite literally popped up in the 86th minute to head home the only goal of the game, straining every single sinew in his body to connect with Miguel Layun’s hanging cross at the far post.

For those who actually appreciate how difficult this kind of thing truly is, it was a beautiful thing…

Here’s how it looked from behind the goal…

By the by, Chichartio scored 25 goals in 28 Bundesliga games for Bayer Leverkusen last season. Do you think it’s fair to say Manchester United missed a trick with this little fella?
