Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez continues to shine at Bayer Leverkusen. The Mexican international scored the German's side equalizer in their Champions League match with Roma on Wednesday night.

In another wild game between both sides, Roma had rushed to a 2-0 lead heading into the break.

But at the restart, Admir Mehmedi pulled a goal back within seconds before Javier Hernandez slotted home the equalizer moments later.

With the goal, Chicharito has now scored seven goals in his last five games, and has a total of nine since joining the Bundesliga club from Manchester United in the summer.

Despite extending his goal-scoring form, Bayer Leverkusen fell 3-2.

Meanwhile, fellow Mexican international Miguel Layun also scored in the Champions League on Wednesday. The former Club America full-back grabbed his first goal career goal with FC Porto in their 3-1 win over Maccabi Tel Aviv.
