World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 8-10 31631361 Soaring high Soaring+high World

Manchester United striker Javier Hernández issued the appropriate response to his omission from United's 2-1 defeat to Real Madrid in midweek: he showed why he deserved his place in the FA Cup quarterfinal draw with Chelsea on Sunday. The Mexican international pounced after five minutes to stake his side to the lead and sustain his good form this season. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson only turns to Chicharito intermittently in the big matches, but Hernández's continued production ensures he will remain in consideration as the season winds to a close.

 

Hernández's work with United topped another notable weekend for Mexicans Abroad. Read on to learn more about Ajaccio's continued battle against relegation and Giovani dos Santos' important contributions to a Mallorca victory.

United squandered the early advantage provided by Chicharito and stumbled to a 2-2 home draw with Chelsea in a FA Cup quarterfinal tie on Sunday. Hernández nabbed his 16th goal of the season to open the scoring after just five minutes. Wayne Rooney doubled the lead six minutes later, but Chelsea mounted an improbable second-half comeback through Eden Hazard and Ramires to arranges a replay.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 8-10 31631363 Guillermo Ochoa, Ajaccio Guillermo+Ochoa%2C+Ajaccio World

Ajaccio continued to distance itself from the relegation mire with a 1-0 home victory over Lorient on Saturday. Ochoa intervened on a couple of occasions to set the stage for Ajaccio's late heroics.

World 2018 43 Mexicans Abroad: March 8-10 31631365 Giovani dos Santos, Mallorca Giovani+dos+Santos%2C+Mallorca World

The schemer played a vital role in Mallorca's 2-1 home victory over Sevilla on Saturday. Dos Santos underscored his active display by contributing to both goals. The former Barcelona man forced Antonio Beto to push away his free kick after 16 minutes and watched as Alejandro Alfaro swept home the rebound to open the scoring. Alfaro benefited from Dos Santos' work again in the second half as he grabbed his second after the Mexico midfielder hit the bar with a header. Mallorca held out for the final 24 minutes to boost its bid to avoid relegation.
