Mexico’s Chicharito Scores A Lovely Backheel Goal (Video)

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is currently leading all Gold Cup scorers with six goal, but none were prettier, or more important, than his game winner in the 65th minute during Saturday’s quarter-final match against Guatemala.

Manchester United fans have grown accustomed to seeing Chicharito display a brilliant finishing touch around the net, and the Mexican fans have been treated to much of the same throughout this tournament.  Hernandez entered the match with five goals in his last two games, and he scored his sixth of the tournament with a lovely backheel that sent Guatemala home and set up a semi-final date with Honduras on Wednesday night.

Here’s another look at the goal.
