Video: Manchester United owned Chicharito scores stunner for Mexico

Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez scored an impressive opener for Mexico against Ecuador.

Javier Hernandez was overjoyed to open the scoring in an international friendly between Mexico and Ecuador.

The 26-year-old striker has had a low key season on loan at Real Madrid, scoring just three La Liga goals in 13 appearances.

Chicharito left Manchester United on loan on transfer deadline day, not in manager Louis van Gaal's first team plans.

He showed his eye for goal for Mexico this evening with a stunning strike, running at the defence and curling it right into the top corner to leave the Ecuador goalkeeper rooted to the spot.

His last goal for Real Madrid came back in October.

This was his 38th international goal in 64 appearances.

His Manchester United teammate Antonio Valencia was in Ecuador's starting line-up, playing in midfield rather than defence as he has been of late for the Red Devils.

With Hernandez's future in doubt, like Radamel Falcao scoring for Colombia against Bahrain this week, both will head back to their loan clubs with added confidence to finish the season strong.
