Chicharito: I’m not obsessed with scoring

The Mexico and Manchester United striker believes there is more to his game than just scoring goals after finding the goal against Guyana last Friday.

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez has been struggling to find the back of the net on both the international and club level, but he's not concerned. It's about more than scoring for the Mexican striker.

Despite missed opportunities in last week's World Cup qualifying match against Guyana - including a failed penalty attempt - the Manchester United man was able to notch a goal in the 5-0 win for his second strike in Mexico's last two games.

“I’m not obsessed with scoring,” Hernandez said, according to ESPN. “I always play my part on the field. I respect the fans, I appreciate them and I am happy. I thank God that I get call ups to the national team.”

The 24-year-old was just pleased that his team recorded another victory in qualifying to remain perfect through five semifinal games in the group stage.

“For me it was more about the fact that we won the match,” Hernandez added. “We ended 5-0. Throughout my career, wherever I’ve been, what has been most important to me is that my team gets the victory.”

Chicharito has one goal on five shots in four appearances with Manchester United this season.
