Last week, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez officially ended a scoring drought. This week, he poured it on and proved that he is still one of the most exciting Mexican internationals to watch.
Chicharito nabbed a brace for Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday vs. Eintracht Frankfurt, putting him at three goals in two games.
The first was a lovely volley, where Chicharito readied himself and then hammered a one-time shot:
Random fact: That was the quickest goal a Mexican international had ever scored in the Bundesliga. And as nice as it was, his next goal would be quintessential Chicharito:
It was an opportunist finish, but that’s what Chicharito does best: he finds a way to get on the ball and make something out of a half-chance. It was another one-time finish for Chicharito and he’s certainly looking like his old self again.
Now, Chicharito has 10 goals in all competitions this season for Leverkusen, eight of them in the Bundesliga.
