"Chicharito" gives Mexico win over Chile in last friendly

Mexico defeated Chile 1-0 on Wednesday at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California, in the last match of preparation for both teams ahead of the Copa America Centenario.

Javier Hernandez, 87 minutes, scored the lone goal of the match.

Although they lost Chile was far superior on the night. All that the South Americans lacked was to finish.

In addition to giving the victory to his team, Hernandez reached 44 goals with the Mexican national team and is two away from the all-time record of 46 belonging to Jared Borgetti.

Mexico now awaits their debut in the Copa America next Sunday against Uruguay. Chile begins their title defense against Argentina on Monday in Santa Clara, California.
