Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is hoping to continue his rich vein of form in America this summer.

The Mexican forward has been on fine form at international level, with six goals to his name in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, being held in the States, ahead of tonight's semi-final against Honduras.

USA was the scene of Hernandez's first appearance for the Red Devils on pre-season last term, and few would have predicted the success 'Chicharito' would have at Old Trafford in his debut season with the club.

"Pre-season is very important and you need to work hard in order to start the season well," Hernandez told the official Manchester United website.

"The facilities in America are wonderful and the coaching staff worked really hard to help us improve."

Unsurprisingly, the States hold fond memories for the Little Pea, and he will be hoping to build on his successes with the Red Devils next term.


"I have so many great memories of last year’s pre-season tour," he continued.

"It was the first chance I got to meet up with the team, I had my first training session and played my first match. I remember everything about the experience very well, especially my first game. There was a great atmosphere in the stadium. We won the game 5-2 and I managed to score.

"The support United have throughout the world is incredible and it was great to see that in America last summer. For me personally everyone was very nice – there are a lot of Mexican people in the States who gave me wonderful support."
