Chicharito will face one of his biggest fans on Friday evening when Mexico take on Belgium in an international friendly.
Speaking ahead of the showdown in Brussels, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez was full of praise for the West Ham United striker
Interviewed by ESPN FC, the former Everton boss said that Chicharito is “a pure winner, a player who always finds a way to succeed, in any team he plays.”
In addition, he mentioned the qualities that have led him to score 140 goals in 358 appearances in his club career and a national record 49 in 98 games with the Mexican national team.
"I think the greatest quality of Javier Hernández is being an exceptional player in the box, which is still one of the areas with the least differences in the different leagues," Martinez added.
"The difference of what happens in the Premier League compared to the other leagues is what happens between the two boxes, where the physical game is clear and in more contact is allowed. That can affect certain players a lot.

"Chicharito is a born goalscorer, who always plays off the last man, and has that quality in finishing, which is less affected by the characteristics of one league or another."
The Belgium coach revealed that he always wanted to sign him when he was at Everton. "We always followed him a lot because he was a footballer who surprised us, because of the way he adapted to Manchester United and his ability to finish.
"It was never possible to sign him but he was one of the players we had been following closely."
