CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Manchester United has added Javier Hernandez to its roster for the team’s preseason tour of the U.S.

Relegated to a reserve role for much of last season, Chicharito will join the Red Devils before their exhibition against the Los Angeles Galaxy on Wednesday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, the team’s first match under new manager Louis van Gaal.

Hernandez played for Mexico in the World Cup, appearing in all four of El Tri’s games and scoring against Croatia. The 26-year-old forward has 59 goals in four seasons at United.

United is missing Robin van Persie, Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj following the World Cup, and Michael Carrick is expected to be sidelined for the first two months of the season following left ankle surgery Thursday.

Manchester United also plays Roma on July 26 at Denver; Inter Milan three days later at Landover, Md.; and European champion Real Madrid on Aug. 2 at Ann Arbor, Mich.
