Chicharito is out of the starting XI against Cameroon

Word on the street is that Chicharito Hernandez will not start for Mexico’s opening World Cup match against Cameroon. Being a huge fan of Chicharito I cannot help but cringe and feel somewhat broken-hearted as I really enjoy watching him; battle for loose balls, chase the goalie, scoring awkward goals, world class goals, his many offside calls, and especially his playfulness and work ethic.

Luckily for Herrera, I think Chicharito is the one player in the world that makes a decision like this for any coach easy.  Chicharito understands that his super star status is not enough reason to have an automatic place in the starting lineup.  For Chicharito, one can find may reasons to why this is occurring.   

I know Miguel is a numbers kind of guy because I'm a numbers kind of guy, and you can sense others who are the same.  I can sense that Herrera is able to put emotion in a small little box and allow the numbers to guide him through his tough decisions.  Especially when it comes to placing the right people in the right position.  In other words the decision to leave him out for the first game should be pardon by Chicharito fans like myself, and we should put our trust in what Herrera is trying to achieve. Most importantly we know that Chicharito will be able to handle this type of decision on and off the field.  And when given the opportunity to play, he will take full advantage of his minutes.
