Man Utd's Hernandez full of admiration for U17 Mexico side

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has heaped praise on the Mexico U17 team that took out the FIFA World Cup in early July.

Raul Gutierrez' boys performed brilliantly to win all seven matches at the tournament, which was held in Mexico, and 'Chicharito' could only admire their wonderful achievement when speaking to FIFA.com.

"As I've said before, I've got nothing but admiration for those lads," he said.

"I was involved in the in the run-up to Peru 2005, but I didn't make the squad which won the (U-17) world title - something these lads were able to achieve.

"They've boosted Mexico's profile everywhere and that makes me feel very proud."
