    No surprise there. Hernandez is already becoming world class and he talks about raising his game even more. Truly a joy to watch.

  2. Jose says:

    Mexicans practice accuracy like crazy since there 5 years old no surprise that Javier Won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Troy says:

    Really enjoyed that video. Chico reminds me of a little brother, the way he runs and up to celebrate with WR10. The kid oozes class.

        Unless we know how to stop the supply line to Chico. Barcelona did.
        Of course, comparing Barcelona to USMNT is like comparing Lewis Hamilton to Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan/celebrity car crash du jour.

          Just dive some more. You don’t need much skill for that.

        • Nik Arur says:

          But you’re also comparing stopping Mexico’s midfield to stopping United’s midfield, the former being a much easier task in my opinion. I think with the new 5-man midfield that we’ve been using we’d have the ability to control the midfield against Mexico. First we have to get to the final.

  4. Nice says:

    Chicharito, 1 opportunity, 1 goal. You know he can do it.
    But if anyone can hit a 10/10, it is David Beckham. Miss him.

  5. Earl Reed says:

    Great video.
