Hernandez took his tally for the tournament to three as Mexico registered their first victory. The win, however, came in a ‘dead’ game after Brazil and Italy had already made sure of their places in the semi-finals as Group ‘A’ qualifiers.
Hernandez, who had scored his team’s only goal of the competition in the 2-1 loss to Italy, opened the scoring in the 54th minute. He timed a run perfectly to meet a cross from Andres Guardado before heading the ball past Eiji Kawashima in the Japan goal. Twelve minutes later, Hernandez made it 2-0.
