Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has struck gold again for Mexico, scoring twice in the side’s 5-0 demolition over Cuba in the Gold Cup on Thursday.

Hernandez opened the scoring for Mexico in the 36th minute, heading a close range ball into the net. With three more goals coming from Guajardo and Giovani dos Santos, who scored a double, Hernandez sealed the victory with the fifth goal of the game, and a fifth goal for himself in two games for Mexico.

In Mexico’s first game of the Cup, against El Salvador, Hernandez bagged a hat-trick, in a match that the South American side also won 5-0.


With the starlet shining for Manchester United in his debut season, and equaling Ruud van Nistelrooy’s debut goal scoring record for United, fans can only dream of the heights that could be reached by the man dubbed ‘Chicharito’.

Despite rumours linking Hernandez with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, Ferguson is set on keeping his prized possession at United, and Hernandez seems to feel the same way.

"I'm very motivated after a great season with United," Hernandez said.

"From now on I'll owe a great debt to Sir Alex for bringing me to Europe.

"My dream has not changed. I want to win many titles to give back to the team that opened the doors for me."
