Javier Hernandez has become the first Mexican to score a brace in the German soccer league Bundesliga. He is now Mexico’s all-time leading scorer in the league’s history.

Bayer Leverkusen's forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez made Bundesliga history by becoming the first Mexican soccer player to ever score a brace, or two goals, in the German league. His two goals came during his team's 3-1 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt late Saturday.

Hernandez has also become Mexico's all-time leading scorer in Bundesliga history as he scored his fifth and sixth goals in the German top flight, the Bundesliga website said.

Chicharito put his team ahead 2-0 with goals in minutes 23 and 39. Watch both goals in the following videos.

“Given his recent scoring form, it was perhaps inevitable that Javier 'Chicharito’ Hernandez broke the deadlock by tapping in from close range after good work by Kevin Kampl,” the website said.

Chicharito has now scored 10 goals in the last seven competitive matches, becoming the “decisive figure for Leverkusen.”

“Furthermore, the Mexican forward was constantly on the move, ghosting away from his markers to open up space for his team-mates,” Bundesliga said.

The Mexican player has now scored a total of three braces for Bayer Leverkusen, as he scored twice in a DFB Cup match and in a Champions League game.

Leverkusen is now in sixth place with 20 points after 13 games that include six victories, two ties and five losses. They have a total of 17 goals, 10 of which are Chicharito's.
