World soccer star Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez has developed a knack for scoring goals by any means possible. The 23-year-old Mexican striker who plays for Manchester United scored his first English football goal with his face, in fact.

Yet the way he deposited the ball in the back of the net for Mexico during Wednesday's 2-0 Gold Cup semifinal win over Honduras might take the cake.

During an extra-time corner kick with Mexico leading 1-0, Hernandez moved deftly in from the far side to position himself to score. When the ball took an awkward bounce, however, Chicharito did what any fearless forward would do and nudged the ball over the line with his ... crotch.
