GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Chivas coach Matias Almeyda believes Mexico can win a World Cup, but that Liga MX clubs need to believe more in the Mexican player.

"I've had the chance to get to know the Mexican player, their idiosyncrasies and I'd go to the World Cup [with Mexico] to win it," said Almeyda in a press conference on Wednesday. "Mexico has a team to win the World Cup."

Milton has stated on more than one occasion that he could also help Bayer Leverkusen striker Hernandez rediscover...

Bayer Leverkusen's Javier Hernandez: I want to stay in Bundesliga

Javier Hernandez describes his passion for football, especially his success in the Champions League.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez does not plan to leave Bayer Leverkusen in January.

"I feel content and I am happy," the Mexico international said in the club's winter training camp in Orlando, Florida.

Hernandez, 28, has struggled for form at Leverkusen in recent months. The former Manchester United attacker has not found the back of the net in his last 15 games for the club, and thus failed to add to his 33 goals from his first 48 competitive matches for Bayer.

Although under contract until 2018,...
