Javier Hernandez feels Manchester United have already proved they have the character to come through their Champions League examination in Switzerland next month.

The Mexico forward was introduced as a late substitute at Old Trafford on Tuesday but could not prevent United being held to a 2-2 draw by Benfica, a result which almost certainly costs United any chance of advancing into the knockout phase as group winners, even if they collect the point from their final game against Basle in Switzerland next month that will guarantee a place in the last 16.

The Red Devils are therefore virtually certain to be pitched into a tough last-16 confrontation with one of Europe's superpowers. However, after bouncing back from their 6-1 humiliation by Manchester City last month, Hernandez believes his team-mates have no need to prove their mental fortitude, saying: "We have come through worse moments than this one."
