Chicharito becomes Mexico’s joint-highest scorer at the World Cup after South Korea strike

Javier Hernandez scored his fourth World Cup goal as Mexico beat South Korea 2-1 on Saturday.

In what proved to be the match-winning strike, the West Ham forward scuffed home from eight yards after Lozano’s direct run.

It was his fourth goal in the World Cup, moving him level with Luis Hernandez as Mexico’s top scorer in the competition. His other three came against France, Argentina (both in 2010), and Croatia in 2014.

All four of Luis Hernandez’s goals came in 1998 when he finished as the¬†joint-third highest scorer in the competition.

Chicharito, who is already Mexico’s all-time top scorer, will now have an excellent chance to claim the record for himself. El Tri’s win means they are almost assured of a fourth game in the last 16.
