Surely there is nobody in football right now who is more likeable than Javier Hernandez? After scoring his 7th goal against Honduras in the semi-final, he has become the second highest scoring player in the history of the competition behind fellow Mexican Luis “Zague” Alves, who knocked in 11 in his 1993 campaign. With 21 goals in 28 appearances for Mexico, Javier Hernandez has firmly positioned himself as one of the most in form strikers in the world right now and turned himself from footballing unknown to global phenomenon in the space of 12 months. Despite this, he hasn’t let any of this go to his head and he remains humble in his successes, long may it continue.
