Mexico's European-based contingent finding its stride as World Cup nears

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez are joined by MLSSoccer.com's Calen Carr to talk all things Juan Carlos Osorio, including how his coaching style and tactics have impacted El Tri.
Herc Gomez and Sebastian Salazar pinpoint Mexico's areas of concern and give their suggested lineups following recent friendlies versus Iceland and Croatia.

MEXICO CITY -- Last December, Benfica striker Raul Jimenez seemed wistful about the stardom he'd left behind at home. "I want to come back, some day," Jimenez said, seemingly catching himself mid-sentence. Jimenez was referring to his old team, Club America. Amid a stretch in which he was barely getting playing time and waited on the bench behind 33-year-old Jonas, Jimenez seemed to be plotting his escape from the Portuguese giant.

Similarly, Javier Hernandez expressed his desire to move on from...

Javier Hernandez can't explain fine goal scoring record against Chelsea

Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez reflect on West Ham's resurgence at Chelsea, Chicharito's impressive goalscoring record against the Blues and more.
English Premier League: Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez (73') Chelsea 1-1 West Ham

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez said he cannot explain his prolific scoring record against Chelsea after striking against them for the ninth time in his career on Sunday.

Hernandez's 73rd-minute equaliser salvaged a 1-1 draw for West Ham and gave them a crucial point in their fight against relegation.

It was the first goal in nearly two months for the Mexico international, but his nine against Chelsea are the most he has scored against any opponent. Six have come as a substitute, while he has scored...

LONDON -- Three points from Stamford Bridge on Chelsea's 1-1 derby draw with West Ham in the Premier League.

1. Chelsea pegged back

This was another two points dropped for Chelsea -- which will be particularly frustrating for home supporters because their side should have been out of sight by half-time. Their attacking play was bright and only a lack of ruthlessness hampered them: Alvaro Morata had two goals disallowed for offside -- both correct decisions, but he might have timed his runs better...

Mexico should target winning World Cup - Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez

ESPN's Herculez Gomez looks at the big picture and what lies ahead for Juan Carlos Osorio after he turned down a contract extension with Mexico.

Mexico striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez isn't looking to limit what El Tri could achieve at this summer's World Cup and thinks the team should head to Russia with the aim of winning the tournament.

Mexico has exited the past six World Cups at the Round-of-16 stage and a lot of the focus in the country is on whether the team can reach the quarterfinals at Russia 2018. But Hernandez thinks this side has enough quality to break that particular glass ceiling, and more.

"Nobody told me that I couldn't...

Andre Villas-Boas: Chicharito nearly joined me at Tottenham, Zenit

Javier Hernandez nearly left Manchester United for Spurs, says Andre Villas-Boas.

Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas believes he was close to signing Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez while he was at Tottenham Hotspur and again at Zenit St. Petersburg, but the Mexican striker wanted to fight for his spot at Manchester United.

"I was close to signing Chicharito, I still have a very good relationship with him," said Villas-Boas in an interview with ESPN.

"He always said: 'Coach, I'm going to fight for my position [at United] and I'll fight until the end.'

"I told him that he should...

After Jonathan Gonzalez's second-half cameo against Bosnia, ESPN's Herculez Gomez questions Juan Carlos Osorio's decision to deploy him in a more advanced position.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio hasn't been shy in expressing his concern over the lack of club minutes for El Tri's Europe-based legion this season, but the Colombian is happy that the situation seems to be improving ahead of this summer's World Cup.

Striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored for West Ham in their 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday and has started the Premier League club's past four matches, while Miguel Layun made a move from Porto to Sevilla and Hector Moreno switched to Real...
