Mexican striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored his first ever goal for Real Madrid with an impressive volley that left the “Merengue” faithful purring for more. Hernandez, having entered the match in the 76th minute, found the back of the net after receiving a 40 yard pass from Francisco “Isco” Alarcon.
“I thought about it, I tried it, and thank’s to God it went in,” said Chicharito of his 88th minute volley. Hernandez, who arrived to Real on a loan deal from Manchester United, was not done. Four minutes later the “Little Pea” struck again, with another potent shot from outside the box, turning Deportivo keeper German Lux into another spectator.
Ironically Hernandez, who has been compared to Real legend Hugo Sanchez, scored hist first goals against Deportivo de La Coruna which was the last club that the five-time top scorer Sanchez scored whilst wearing the White Jersey.
