Chicharito confident about Mexico's chances

Osorio's tactics are key for Mexico's success, according to Chicharito

The Mexican striker is almost a sure bet up front when Mexico takes the pitch to battle Germany in the FIFA Confederations Cup semi-final.

The Mexican National Team wants one more historical win under Juan Carlos Osorio, and even if the Colombian's haters seem to want Mexico to fail, his players are convinced about their chances against Germany.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Mexican striker and all-time goal scoring leader Javier "Chicharito" Hernández referred to Juan Carlos Osorio's rotation policy, which has been the subject of criticism in the North American country. 

According to Bayer Leverkusen's ace, mixing up the squad and using 22 of the 23 squad members has been key to Mexico's great numbers since the Colombian tactician took over as their coach.

We have to give our boss some credit for our development. He trusts us, he shares his knowledge with you and he makes you understand what he needs from you on the pitch. That's one of this team's greatest strengths," Hernández stated.

"Chicharito" needs two goals to reach the 50-goal mark with El Tri in all competitions.

Osorio's had quite a historical run with the Mexicans, both for good and bad reasons. El Tri has broken winless streaks against the USMNT, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, Honduras and El Salvador under Osorio, but the Colombian coach was also responsible for that 7-0 loss against Chile, the worst defeat in history for CONCACAF'S so-called "giant".

Hernández went on and praised his team-mates, as Mexico presents one of the most talented generations ever to wear the green jersey.

"Any player that's included in our Starting XI is willing to face all challenges. It doesn't matter if they play in Europe or in one of Mexico's greatest teams, we're always willing to give 110%. Our coach's rotation policy gives us an excellent chance to shine, and it keeps us focused to fight for a spot in the lineup," the striker added.

Mexico has faced Germany four times in  FIFA-sanctioned tournaments, such as the World Cup or the Confederations Cup. All of those meetings have ended with a win for the Europeans, and it seems like Chicharito & Co. want to change the course of history.
