Javier Hernandez, otherwise known as Chicharito, is Mexico’s top ever goalscorer and continues to add to his tally for his country. The former Manchester United striker has scored 49 times for Mexico in just 100 caps. Will he be top goalscorer at the World Cup we hear you ask well, let’s see what’s on offer.

Hernandez will be an integral part of Mexico’s team at the World Cup and will be leading the forward line. Hernandez is a proven goalscorer and this fact means that a bet on him being the top goalscorer at the World Cup might be a bet worth thinking about. In this article we will look at the odds on that bet at various different outlets, as well as a couple of other Hernandez World Cup odds and bets.

Hernandez World Cup 2018 Prediction

Mexico were drawn in Group F with Germany, South Korea and Sweden. It’s a group that Mexico can definitely progress from and they will fancy their chances to go through.

In all of these matches Mexico are likely to use their sharp, lively attacking football which is characteristic of the Central Americans.

They may struggle against Germany, but both Sweden and South Korea are two games which Mexico are certainly capable of winning, and you’d expect them to create goalscoring chances in these matches especially. Hernandez will more often than not be involved in the attacking play, and we think it’s extremely likely that he will score a goal or two.

If Mexico get through their group in second it is highly likely that they will face Brazil which in all honesty, most of us would expect Brazil to win. Ultimately though, this is the World Cup and anything can happen!
