'Chicharito' does it again for Mexico

[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Mexico's 21-year-old sensation from Guadalajara, scored in the 69th minute to give Mexico a 2-1 win over North Korea Wednesday in Torreon and improve his tally to four goals in three World Cup warmups this year.

Former Chicago Fire star Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored the game's first goal on a 20-yard free kick in the 50th minute, but North Korea equalized seven minutes later when Choe Kum Chol scored.

Mexico is back in action next Wednesday against Iceland at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, where more than 55,000 tickets have been sold.
