Hernandez’s first, a header from close range, put Mexico 3-0 up on 60 minutes. Seven minutes later he latched onto a long ball and finished across the El Salvador goalkeeper, before sealing his treble in injury-time with a cheeky, chipped penalty.

In typical Hernandez style, the striker played down his individual achievement when talking to reporters after the match.

"The most important thing for me is the three points,” he said. “I don't care if I score – sometimes I won't. The main thing is we won.”

Mexico's next test comes against Cuba, in Charlotte on 9 June.
