The 26-year-old is yet to start a game in Brazil this summer, but he came off the bench to add a third for Miguel Herrera’s side in their 3-1 win over Croatia as they secured progression from Group A.

That result saw Mexico end the group stages with seven points – only finishing behind favourites Brazil on goal difference – after seeing off Cameroon to win 1-0 and holding the hosts in a goalless draw.

Hernandez made just six Premier League starts last season as United slumped to a seventh-place finish and, as a result, his place in the Mexico side is no longer a given.

He said: "This whole year has been very tough. Players need confidence more than anything else, and I’ve been very short of it.

"Very few people have shown faith in me over this past year."

Mexico will now meet Holland in the last 16 as they look to make the quarter-finals for the first time since 1986, but Hernandez insists they are remaining grounded.

"We’re really happy, really pleased. We have to stay very calm, very humble and not get carried away.

"This is just one more step forward – a very important one – but just one more step.

"If we want to make history we have to beat Holland and keep moving along the path we’ve set out for ourselves."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
