World Cup 2010, Mexico Vs. France: Substitute Javier Hernandez Gives El Tri Lead In 64th Minute

Javier Hernández beat the France offside trap and took Rafa Marquez's chip in alone on Hugo Lloris.  One move to his right around an oncoming `keeper gave Chicharito an empty net from 16 yards and México a 1-0 lead in the 64th minute.

Early in the second half, Mexico had started reasserting control of the match, having had their first half momentum stymied by the halftime break.  Their more patient second half approach paid off when Hernández, 28 yards from goal, was kept onside by William Gallas.  Rafa Marquez chipped a perfect ball to the edge of the box, allowing the new Manchester United man an easy goal.

It was Hernández's eighth goal in 14 international caps.
