Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has taken another swipe at manager David Moyes, saying he is just happy to be playing when he lines up for Mexico on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old has started only four Premier League matches this season and has regularly expressed his frustration at the situation, including an enigmatic post on his Instagram page following United's 2-2 draw with Fulham that simply read: "The time to speak about so many things will comeā€¦"

But, as he prepares to start in his country's friendly against Nigeria at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Hernandez says he is just happy to be getting game time.

"I am very eager to play as my club don't take me much into account," he told Record. "I hope I have the opportunity to play.

"When you are called up, you have to be thankful. If not called up, you have to keep working. I am very happy and thankful with this call-up, like I was when I was called up for the first time."

Nigeria and Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo - on loan at Middlesbrough - sees Hernandez as the main threat to his side.

"He is a good player, with great quality and I think he is the hope of Mexico," he said.

"It will be a good game and we hope to win. Mexico has great players playing very well and this match will not be easy."
