Javier Hernandez victim of birthday cake prank by Mexico teammates

They say you can't have your cake and eat it -- but Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez had that and more for his birthday.

The Bayer Leverkusen striker turned 29 on Thursday and to celebrate he was presented with a birthday cake by his Mexico teammates.

Urged to take a bite out of it, Hernandez leant in for a piece, only to then have his head shoved into the cake by his pals.

If that wasn't quite enough, his international teammates, at this point bursting with laughter, proceeded to spray multiple bottles of sauce all over the former Manchester United man's head.

Happy birthday indeed -- though he took it well, to be fair.
