Manchester United’s former player Javier Hernandez is to miss out on the 2022 World Cup Finals.

The popular Mexican won’t be included in his countries squad for this years finals in Qatar, despite representing them at each of the past 3 tournaments. And according to The Mirror, news of the striker’s exclusion comes direct from his Mexico national team manager, Tata Martino. Despite earning 109 caps and scoring 54 goals over a 13 year international career for “El Tri”, Hernandez hasn’t appeared for his country since leaving Europe for the MLS back in 2019.

And Martino has explained that the former United man will not be selected because of an abundance of strikers available to him. Martino told the media ahead of Mexico's upcoming games against Peru and Colombia that in the case of Chicharito, they are simply going with other forward options that they have available. He added that they will try to choose the 26 players who are closest to their playing style.
According to him, they have two forwards who can play and two who can't. He stated that he also likes the fact that they do not lack players, as they have just enough to deal with. Continuing his speech, he added that there are four foewards who are not going to go to Qatar, but as long as they make it very difficult for him to choose, he will be very happy about it. Hernandez had been selected for each of the previous three competitions, in 2010, 2014 and 2018, keeping up his reputation as a dangerous goalscorer by bagging goals in each of the finals.
And although goals had become a little more hard to come by for Chicharito while at Sevilla in Spain, his move to The United States to join LA Galaxy in 2020, has proved a fruitful one. The ex United danger man has kept up his prolific record by helping himself to better than a goal every other game, registering 34 goals in just 62 games. And his goal scoring prowess is showing no signs of slowing as the 34 year old has already scored 15 goals for the Galaxy this season.
