Manchester United's Hernandez must get games to make World Cup

Chicarito has had a quiet term -

Mexico boss Miguel Herrera has admitted that the lack of game time experienced by star striker Javier Hernandez at Manchester United is something of a concern to him with the World Cup less than three months away.

The diminutive goalscorer Hernandez, around whom much of Mexico's tactics are centered, has rarely figured for Reds boss David Moyes this season, save for a number pf cameo appearances from the bench. 

Herrera told fifa.com: "I am worried and I'd like him to be playing more, although he's out of favour with the current caoch. Obviously he's in our thoughts and I told him that, but we'll just have to see how it goes."

"It's not that his form has dropped off or anything, it's just that other players are going to overtake him unless he gets regular games."

Mexico are in the same World Cup group as hosts Brazil, and Hernandez, with 35 goals in 57 international games, is seen by many as their most influential player.
