Javier Hernandez, nicknamed Chicharito ("Little Green Pea"), has quickly climbed up the ranks of world football. As top scorer in the Primera Division de Mexico with 17 goals, he earned a place in the Mexico squad for the 2010 World Cup and a transfer to Manchester United, agreeing a deal with the Premier League club in April.
Hernandez comes from a family of football players, and made a name for himself at one of Mexico's most popular clubs, Chivas de Guadalajara, who were patient enough to bring him up as a pro after he was left out of the Mexican Under-17 national team that grabbed the World Cup in Peru 2005.

His nickname, "Chicharito", is a derivative from his father's moniker, "Chicharo" Hernandez, a former Chivas player who also wore the national colours during the Mexico World Cup 1986. But his football genes can be traced even further back in his lineage to his grandfather Tomas Balcazar, also a star player for the Rebano Sagrado (Sacred Herd) of Chivas.

Hernandez made his Chivas debut in 2006, while his national team bow came 2009 against Colombia; his excellent start during the Bicentenario (Bicentennial) 2010 tournament motivated Javier Aguirre to give him greater consideration for a position in the national team. He responded by scoring four times in three games: two against Bolivia, then New Zealand and North Korea.

His move to Old Trafford came as somewhat of a surprise to the watching world before the World Cup, but after an impressive finals in which he scored against France and Argentina, it became clear that United had signed a gem of a player. Hernandez was expected to take a while to bed in but after some sensational displays from the substitute's bench, he displaced Dimitar Berbatov as Wayne Rooney's strike partner in the second half of the season. Crucial goals against Stoke, West Brom, Marseille and Chelsea were among an unbelievable haul of 20 goals as he won the hearts and minds of pundits and supporters alike, winning the Sir Matt Busby Award for United Fans' Player of the Season.

Strengths: Has great vision and anticipation in the box, with his decision making impressive for a player who is relatively inexperienced at the highest level ; he is great in also the air and boasts plenty of pace on the ground.

Weaknesses: Too damn good.

Career high: Legal immigration.

Career low: Chicharito was ready to play in the Under-17 World Cup in Peru 2005, but an injury sidelined him from the team that ultimately won the championship.

Style:A natuarl poacher, but also a forward who always works for the rest of the team, refusing to simply sit in the box and wait for assists.

Quotes: "There is no doubt that Hernandez is a promising player. He is excellent, I have seen some games of his on television and he is a fantastic footballer," High praise from one of the greatest of all time, Pele, in May 2011.

Trivia: His forebears have played for Chivas for three straight generations.

What does that mean?

I think he's overrated. Not that he isn't good, but I'd rather have Kim Il Sung on my team and I hate Asians.
You wouldn't take Chicharito in Bayern? :shifty:
