[ENGLAND]Who needs Wayne Rooney when you have Javier Hernandez? Chicharito again rescued Manchester United with the winning goal in the 89th minute of its 3-2 win over Wolves in the English League Cup on Tuesday. United manager Alex Ferguson cautions against building up heroes, but ...

"We tend to build up heroes very quickly here," said Ferguson. "But the boy is justifying all the praise he's getting at the moment. He was absolutely brilliant, it was a magnificent goal he scored. He dummied the defender really well, shaped to shoot and produced a great finish."

The goal came two days after Hernandez, the 22-year-old Mexican striker acquired for Guadalajara in a deal reached last spring, scored twice in United's 2-1 win over Stoke City to keep United unbeaten in the English Premier League.

"The kid is such a great professional," added Ferguson, "and he's first in and last out of training. His goalscoring is getting a lot of credit and praise, and quite rightly. When he came on, you just knew if he got a chance he would take it. His composure, touch and control of the ball is improving. His vision is improving but that's all down to the training we do."
