Javier Hernandez scored against Jamaica last night to move just one goal off Mexico’s all-time top scorer record.
Chicharito opened the scoring in the Copa America Centenario clash against the Jamaicans at the Rose Bowl in California.
It sent his country on the way to a 2-0 victory and ensured they’ll be in the knockout stages of the competition with a game to spare.
But Hernandez’s goal was also big for him personally, as he moved one goal off Jared Borgetti’s all-time scoring record.
Borgetti – who played for Mexico until he was 34 – has more goals than any other Mexican international at 46.
And it sums up just how good a goalscorer Hernandez is that he’s now on 45 at the age of 28 – making it inevitable that he’ll surpass Borgetti and put a new all-time scoring record up on the board.
Here’s the goal which took Hernandez one away from the joint record:
It’s only right Hernandez moved a step closer to the record with a trademark header – Manchester United fans will remember him doing that regularly for them.
He’ll no doubt have his eye on the record when Mexico play Venezuela in their final group game.
