Javier Hernandez has scored yet another goal for Mexico in the Gold Cup, this time against Guatemala. After going a goal down early on this quarter-final, Aldo de Nigris equalised for the Mexicans, before Chicharito scored the winner on 66 minutes.
Mexico will now face Honduras in the semi-final on June 22nd and could face USA, Jamaica, Panama or El Salvador in the final, with the other quarter-finals being played today.
Chicharito’s six goals this year has only been bettered on two occasions, by Trinidad’s Steve Davis’s 7 goals in 1973 and Mexico’s Luis Roberto Alves’s 11 goals in 1993. Chicharito now has 20 goals in 27 appearances for his country.
