Javier Hernandez apologised to 'all Mexicans' on Sunday following his national side's horrendous Copa America Centenario quarter-final defeat at the hands of Chile.
Mexico went into the game hoping to claim a spot in the semi-finals of the prestigious competition, but they succumbed to a shocking 7-0 defeat.
Four goals from Eduardo Vargas, a brace from Edson Puch and a strike from Alexis Sanchez helped Chile secure a memorable victory.

Incredibly, Mexico had gone on a 22 game unbeaten run, but they were well and truly brought back down to earth against Chile.
As you can imagine, then, the fallout from the game has only just begun, but ex-Manchester United striker Hernandez didn't shy away following the contest.
Hernandez is sorry
The forward took to social media to express his disappointment, admitting that his teammates have been left embarrassed.
You can see the tweet here:
In English, the tweet read: "Apologies to all Mexicans who knew not represented as tonight they deserve. We are very embarrassed, sad and hurt."
While the game proved a nightmare for Mexico, it's safe to say that it was a memorable occasion for Chile, who will now be hoping to win the tournament. Manager Juan Antonio Pizzi was certainly pleased and insisted that his side can continue their heroics.
He stated, as per the Mirror: “We didn’t give Mexico a chance. We were the winners by far in the individual duels.
“These players are writing the most brilliant pages in the history of Chilean football. I hope we can keep adding to it.”
