Javier Hernandez passed Jared Borgetti as Mexico's all-time leading scorer today when his goal in their 2-1 defeat to Croatia took his tally to 47.
Yesterday the Bayer Leverkusen striker rose to head home a free kick at the far post with four minutes left in the match.
Duje Cop and Fran Tudor had put Croatia 2-0 by half time.
Hernandez, better known as 'Chicharito', got the goal after coming on as a substitute in the 66th minute of the friendly match played at Los Angeles' Memorial Coliseum.
