Manchester United's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez could be one of Mexico's three overage players at this summer's Olympics, where men's soccer is a U-23 competition in which teams
can include three "wild card" players.
“A natural candidate, Chicharito. Everyone thinks of him, obviously,” said Mexico U-23 coach Luis Fernando Tena after his team booked a ticket to the London Games. “He plays in England."
ManU’s home field, Old Trafford, is one of six venues that will host games and Mexico could play there if it is drawn into the right slots in either Groups A, C or D. The Olympic draw is April 24.
“We can’t say if he is going to be that player,” he said. “He’s a great candidate. Let’s wait and analyze it. Four months. He’s a candidate.”
