Javier Hernandez was a part of the Mexico side that recorded a 1-0 win over Germany at the 2018 World Cup on Sunday afternoon.

And he played a key role in the victory having set up teammate Hirving Lozano for the only goal of the match in the first period.

Hernandez entered this summer’s tournament off the back of a frustrating season at West Ham United, with Marko Arnautovic taking his spot in the team in the latter stages of the campaign.

The 30-year-old still managed eight Premier League goals during the 2017-18 season, however, and there are suggestions that new West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini wants the striker to be a key part of his team next season.

The West Ham fans have been discussing Hernandez on social media, and many still cannot understand why the striker was left out of the starting XI for periods of last season.

That said, there are also those who feel that Arnautovic is the better option at centre-forward due to his overall game, which is superior in the eyes of many.

A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham supporters can be seen below:
