Chicharito Set to Make MLS Season Debut Against Houston Dynamo
Exciting news for LA Galaxy fans as head coach Greg Vanney confirms that Mexican forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has recovered from a hamstring injury and is all set to make his 2023 MLS season debut this Saturday against the Houston Dynamo.
Vanney said during a press conference on Wednesday, “He looks sharp, he looks good. [He’s] getting repetitions in front of goal now because when you have a hamstring injury you can’t do a lot of things in a high intensity and high speed. Now it is just repetitions and getting him ready.”
Chicharito is all set to give a boost to Galaxy’s winless side that have seen three draws and two losses so far this season.
Hernandez is not only expected to perform well for Galaxy but also for his national team Mexico. The Mexican striker has recently been in contact with new El Tri Manager Diego Cocca, and could possibly return to play for the national side in an upcoming friendly against the United States on April 19 in Glendale, Arizona.
Before earning a national team call-up, Hernandez needs to focus on reclaiming his form in the MLS from where he left off last time. The seasoned striker could soon make his first MLS appearance since 2019 and may create an immediate impact in the MLS season.
So save the date, watch out for an exhilarating encounter as Hernandez face off against fellow Mexican international Hector Herrera when Galaxy takes on the Houston Dynamo this Saturday!
