Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is coming to America after all.
One day he was left off the traveling roster for Manchester United’s upcoming United States tour, the club has announced that Hernandez will join the club in Los Angeles on Tuesday ahead of the team’s international friendly against the Galaxy on Wednesday (10:30 pm ET, Fox Sports 1).
Hernandez, 26, has scored 59 goals across all competitions over the past four seasons with Manchester United, the club that plucked him out of Mexico in 2010 just as he was becoming a national star.
He most recently appeared for the Mexican national team last month at the World Cup in Brazil, where he appeared in all four matches for El Tri and scored a goal in the team’s win over Croatia in Recife during the group stage.
After the opening match against the Galaxy, United will then take part in the Guinness International Champions Cup, facing AS Roma in Denver (July 26), Inter Milan in Washington, D.C. (July 29) and Real Madrid in Ann Arbor, Mich. (Aug. 2).
If United make the final of the competition, the preseason tour will conclude with the final in Miami on Aug. 4.
Manchester United will hold an open training session on July 22 at 10 pm ET at the Rose Bowl Stadium ahead of Wednesday’s game.
