On as a 64th minute substitute for West Ham in their Premier League match against Bournemouth on Saturday, Mexico international Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored the equalizer for the Hammers in a 1-1 draw at London Stadium.
Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez is good at a lot of things. Chicharito can score with his feet, his head and, most impressively, his face for both club (West Ham) and country (Mexico). Hammers teammate Pablo Zabaleta is also a pretty good football player, having played right back for Manchester City and the Argentine national team for many years. But neither are very good at the game they played Friday: a Don’t-Laugh Challenge.
Just when you thought Chicharito would have more chances to play, David Moyes is appointed West Ham manager.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news at first glance (even though many West Ham fans are reportedly pissed that Moyes was named boss).
However, if you take a look at recent history, you’ll see Moyes’ arrival to the London club could potentially spell a great deal of frustration for Javier Hernández.
Chicharito scored his forth goal of the season playing for West Ham as the Hammers visited Crystal Palace in the tenth week of the Premier League. However, the goal scored by the Mexican was insufficient as Crystal Palace came back from a 0-2 disadvantage in the second half. This was also good news for Chicharito, who has failed to meet the goalscoring expectations placed on him so far.
The18.com's Giselle Cesín talks about the week's action in Liga MX. Right now, soccer is on hold due to the devastating earthquake that struck Mexico.
Although reports of major damage to Estadio Azteca during the earthquake that hit Mexico City proved to be false, it is going to take a lot of time and effort to recover from the devastating event.
Javier “Chicharito” Hernández and Lionel Messi are both international soccer stars and the all time top scorers for their respective national teams. But how do the two stars compare when we take a direct look at Chicharito vs Messi? Here's an overview of their career stats and highlights from the handful of times they have played head-to-head.
In recent days a (wild) rumor has spread saying Club América’s jewel, 17-year-old Diego Lainez, could be sold for the staggering amount of $35-41.8 million in 2018. TV Azteca reporter Omar Zerón recently tweeted that several European teams are looking to sign the young player in order to develop him and turn the left-footed Mexican into a star.
Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez walked away from his West Ham regular season debut goalless, creating a few scattered opportunities but, on the whole, looking isolated up front as Andre Ayew and Marko Arnautović dropped into deep positions early.
Slaven Bilic acknowledged as much in post-match commentary, conceding that West Ham's initial 4-3-3 formation left Chicharito on his own.
Let’s set the stage here: On July 1, 2010, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is officially unveiled as a Manchester United player. After scoring against the MLS All-Stars, Chivas and the League of Ireland XI in consecutive preseason friendlies, England is abuzz with ChicaGol mania.
