VIDEO: 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez Scores Backheel Goal For Mexico Vs. Guatemala

Playing well for Manchester United and starring for Mexico, there is no shortage of hype for Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez. Some might even call it overhype, but on one day with one goal he cannot be overhyped. With Mexico locked in a 1-1 tie with Guatemala in the Gold Cup quarterfinals he pulled out this gem to put El Tri on top.

A little more backheel, please? Yeah, that was all kinds of pretty and then some. If this 2-1 scoreline holds up then this goal will prove to be the match-winner and it would be one heck of a winner.

This hasn't been Mexico's best match by any means, but after trailing 1-0 at halftime they've grabbed a hold of the match in the second 45 minutes. The midfield play is now squarely in favor of the Mexicans and when you dominate the midfield with someone like Chicharito up top with finishing like that, watch out.
