Former Man Utd striker Javier Hernandez left red-faced after Panenka penalty blunder for LA Galaxy

Chicharito in MLS Panenka fail

Ex-Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez missed a stoppage-time Panenka penalty for LA Galaxy over the weekend.

The Mexico international, who is now 34-years-old, scored twice to help his side draw level at 2-2 against Sporting Kansas City.

Galaxy were awarded a spot-kick six minutes into added-on time and Chicharito had the chance earn his team a big three points in their quest for the MLS play-offs.

However, his chip down the middle was read by Kansas stopper John Pulskamp.

Penalty blunder

Hernandez has been a goal scorer throughout his career and has managed 34 in 62 since moving over to America.

Galaxy are three points off the play-offs at the moment and have two games in-hand on the likes of Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake above them meaning that the penalty miss hasn’t completely blown their season.

The forward spent six years at Old Trafford from 2010 to 2016 having made the move to England from Guadalajara.

He went on to fire 59 goals in 157 appearances for United in all competitions and helped them win the Premier League title twice under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Chicharito has since gone on to play for Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, West Ham United and Sevilla.

He is a player who usually makes the headlines for his goals and will be eager to bounce back from his penalty blunder this weekend against Nashville.
