Bayer 04 Leverkusen star Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez will spearhead Mexico’s Copa America Centenario challenge after being included in his nation’s final squad.
‘Chicharito’ scored 17 Bundesliga goals for Die Werkself in his maiden season in Germany, helping Roger Schmidt’s men secure third place and qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League group stage.
The former Manchester United FC and Real Madrid CF man needs just four goals for his country during the tournament in the USA to overtake Jared Borgetti as Mexico’s leading all-time goalscorer.
There was no place in the squad, however, for Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Marco Fabian.
Mexico start their Copa America Centenario bid against Uruguay in Phoenix on 5 June (kick-off 6 June 02:00CEST) before facing Jamaica in Pasadena on 9 June and Venezuela in Houston four days later.
