“Chicharito” is on the board at the Confederations Cup.
Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored for Mexico on Sunday in its 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup opener against Portugal. Chicharito’s 42nd-minute header tied the score at 1-1.
Chicharito’s goal came just eight minutes after Ricardo Quaresma had given Portugal the lead.
The goal extended Chicharito’s Mexico record.
Mexico and Portugal are among the favorites to win the Confederations Cup, and their Group A game is perhaps the marquee matchup of the first stage of the tournament.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw.
