WATCH: 'Chicharito' becomes all-time leading goal scorer in Mexico soccer team history
Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez broke the record on Saturday night in Los Angeles
Mexico international Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez became the nation's all-time leading goal scorer on Saturday night, scoring in the 2-1 loss to Croatia to reach 47 goals and pass Jared Borgetti.
He headed home late to earn his place atop the goal scoring chart. Take a look:
Not the fanciest goal in the world, but a monumental moment for the striker. Considering he is just 28 (his birthday is June 1), he has the chance to really set the bar high this summer alone. Mexico has World Cup qualifying, Confederations Cup and Gold Cup action, though it is high unlikely he will play in both cups.
Considering his age, there is no reason why he can't push, say, 70 goals or so with the national team when his career is up.
