Javier Hernandez Balcazar, nicknamed Chicharito, is a Mexican international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester United. He plays as a striker and is rated as one of the best young players in the world.
Hernandez commenced his professional club football career for Mexican giants Guadalajara in 2006 and played for them for four years. In the summer of 2010 Manchester United signed the striker, who proved to be a great signing during the 2010-11 campaign.
Hernandez’s performance both in the Premier League and the Champions League earned him laurels from across the footballing community. However, Hernandez failed to replicate that form in the 2011-12 campaign but remained an important part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s team.
So far he has won the Premier League twice with United in 2011 and 2013 and the FA Community Shield in 2010.
Hernandez made his international debut for Mexico in 2009 and has established himself as a first-team regular for the North American giants. He played for his country at the 2010 World Cup finals and at the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup where he topscored with seven goals and was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Hernandez has scored 35 goals in 53 appearances for Mexico.
