DALLAS - Javier Hernandez scored a
hat-trick as Mexico crushed El Salvador 5-0 in front of 80,000
fans at Cowboys Stadium in their Gold Cup opener on Sunday.
The Mexicans scored four goals inside 12 minutes early in
the second half and sent out a clear message they will not
surrender their CONCACAF crown without a fight.
Efrain Juarez put 'El Tri' ahead in the 55th minute before
Aldo De Nigris doubled the advantage with a bustling effort
three minutes later.
Manchester United forward Hernandez headed home a cross from
Andres Guardado and the little striker, known as 'Chicharito,'
delighted the massive Mexican support with a fourth in the 67th.
In the final minute, Hernandez was brought down in the area
by Marvin Gonzalez, who was sent off, and the Mexican forward
rose to convert the spot-kick and complete his hat-trick.
