Watch: Chicharito Becomes Mexico's All-Time Top Scorer

Javier Hernandez became Mexico's all-time top scorer when he grabbed a late consolation goal for his side against Croatia on Saturday night.

Mexico were 2-0 down at the LA Coliseum against the Croatians when Chicharito headed home in the 87th minute from Andres Guardado's free kick. He had entered the game 20 minutes earlier as a replacement for Oribe Peralta.

It was the 28-year-old's 47th international goal and it moved him one ahead of Jared Borgetti. Hernandez has 91 caps for Mexico, while Borghetti hit the 46-goal mark in 89 appearances.

Since leaving Man Utd in 2015, Hernandez has a prolific time in front of goal for Bayer Leverkusen, hitting the back of the net 39 times.
