Man Utd's Hernandez happier to win than score

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was more focused on getting three points for his country than scoring three goals in yesterday's CONCACAF Gold Cup opener. 'Chicharito' netted a hat-trick as Mexico exploded in the second half to dispatch El Salvador 5-0 in the Group A clash in Arlington, Texas and the Red Devils star said it was more important for El Tri to kick off the tournament with a victory rather than him getting on the scoresheet.

"The more important thing is the three points," Hernandez said after the match.

"I don't care if I score or not but the important thing is getting the win. If I score, then I score."

Mexico next take on Cuba, who lost 5-0 to Costa Rica, at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on Thursday.
