Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored his first Bundesliga goal for Bayer Leverkusen, and it was a game-winner.
Chicharito is on the board in the Bundesliga
Mexican forward Javier Hernandez scored his first goal in Germany's top flight, and it was the only tally in Bayer Leverkusen's 1-0 win over Mainz 05 on Wednesday. Chicharito, who had already scored for the club in the Champions League, did the heavy lifting on the goal, though he was helped by a deflection.
Hernandez won the ball at midfield and dribbled toward the edge of the 18-yard box, taking on a defender and cutting back to create space. His attempt nicked off Hakan Calhanoglu and wrong-footed Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius, but it counts all the same and was enough to deliver the three points.
Chicharito is in the first month of his three-year deal with Leverkusen after leaving Manchester United during the summer transfer window.
