United - Not Quite What We Expected!

There we were expecting to see our Mexican teenage sensation thrill a nation this afternoon.

Javier Hernandez we thought would be selected by the Mexican manager but we were proven wrong. Instead all we were treated to was an 18 minute cameo appearance when he came on as a substitute for the ex-West Ham player, Guillermo Franco.

Javier, the third generation of his family to play for Mexico, was restricted to one effort, a header he could only direct high and wide. But we were treated to a couple of neat touches that showed this lad has skill in abundance.

Here`s hoping that the next match witnesses some more action from the lad.

As for the result, it finished South Africa 1 Mexico 1

His hold up play is very good and he generally seems to be in the right place most of the time. He's not the finished article but definitely has a solid foundation to build on. Working with Fergie alongside Rooney and Owen will certainly help his game. The only problem we face now is finding someone with the ability to pick out his runs with some decent passes.

I dont know about anyone else but I'm quite comfortable with the fact that media reports over us buying Gourcuff, Ribery, Pieenar and Suarez havent been correct so far. I thought Gourcuff looked poor as soon as he was put under pressure which doesnt bode well for a premier league move. Ribery showed again that Bayerns talk about getting over 50m for him was a joke. Pieenar is only slightly better than park. Suarez has good link up play but clearly doesnt understand the offside rule and has surprisingly little pace.

Just goes to show the amount of hype that surrounds these 20 mil+ players tuscan. Ribery was about a useful as chocolate teapot, Gourcuff just shot on sight from every freekick and didnt show any real desire to life his team, Pienaar was completely outshown by Tshabalala (what a goal) and yea Suarez needs to learn the difference between onside and offside. Anyway back to Hernandez who i thought for the little time he was played perhaps created more chances than the other Mexico players. It would've been nice to see what he would've done when put into Franco's position who missed every single chance.

tuscan, I agree, all those players you mention have been a damp squib so far. Ozil though, that's a name to remember!
