Hernandez scored after coming off the substitutes' bench as Mexico beat Croatia 3-1 to finish second in Group A behind hosts Brazil.

"This is a goal that gives me a lot of confidence," he said. "But I'm never going to feel pressured by anything. I don't live off goals.

"I live off enjoying myself, off the confidence I have in myself and something that many people, throughout this year, have not had in me.

"I feel I'm on the right path and I want to continue like this. I had three very good years with the national team and then one year in which I did not play for my club and I ended up on the bench.

"We are going to enjoy this win, it was a huge step forward. We are very humble and respectful. We will think of Holland next. One must focus on the present and take it one game at a time."

Mexico take on Group B winners the Netherlands on Sunday in Fortaleza; Van Persie missed the 2-0 win over Chile on Monday through suspension but will return this weekend.

"It will be a joy," Hernandez said. "He is a team-mate with whom I've experienced two important years.

"I've learned a lot from him, we won a title and it will be very nice to see him again."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
