The El Tri striker headed home a free kick from Andres Guardado to become his country’s all-time leading scorer
Mexico had a night to forget, but it was one Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez will remember forever.
After scoring his 46th Mexico goal for against Costa Rica in a March World Cup qualification match to tie Jared Borgetti as the country’s all-time leading scorer, the Bayer Leverkusen forward was on the verge of history. It came Saturday night.

The 28-year-old got his head to an Andres Guardado free kick to pull a goal back for El Tri and put his name into the record books with his 47th all-time goal. Hernandez will hope many more are coming with Mexico set for a pair of World Cup qualification matches in June before traveling to the Confederations Cup in Russia.
