Club career

Early career

Nicknamed La Joya,[2] he started his professional career with Uruguayan side Central Español, immediately scoring five goals in his first four games. He was subsequently acquired by Peñarol, where he established himself as a regular and also gained a spot into the Under-20 Uruguayan side.

Palermo

On 2 February 2009 Italian Serie A club Palermo completed the signing of Hernández, where he joined fellow Uruguayan Edinson Cavani. He was presented by Palermo only one month later, due to some health concerns regarding a cardiac arrhythmia that led to a small surgical intervention.[3][4] He made his first team debut on 15 March, replacing Edinson Cavani in the final minutes of a 5–2 home win to Lecce.[5] He then won the Trofeo Giacinto Facchetti with the Primavera under-19 team in June 2009.[6]

After missing the initial weeks of the 2009–10 Serie A due to injury and his participation in the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup. Hernández played his first game on 29 October 2009. Coming on as a half-time substitute for Cristian Melinte, he scored in the 5–3 loss to league leaders Inter.[7]

Hull City

Hernández signed for English club Hull City on 1 September 2014 for a club record £10 million on a three-year contract, with the club having an option for a fourth year.[8] Two weeks later he made his debut at the KC Stadium, and scored the first goal of a 2–2 draw with West Ham United.[9] In his next home game against Manchester City he won a penalty after being fouled in the area by Eliaquim Mangala which he went on to score in an eventual 4–2 defeat.[10] His next goal came when he put his team into the lead during a hard fought 2-2 away draw against Arsenal.[11]

International career

On 27 July 2010 he was called up for a friendly match with Uruguay against Angola in Lisbon. The game, which was played on 11 August, ended in a 2–0 win for Uruguay, with Hernández being fouled for the penalty, which was scored by Edinson Cavani. Hernández then scored the second and final goal for the Celeste during injury time.[12] He was chosen by Óscar Tabárez for the London 2012 Olympics Uruguay Squad. The following year, he was selected for Uruguay's squad at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup; in the final group stage match against Tahiti, Hernández earned a first half hat-trick and eventually went on to become the fourth player in Confederations Cup history to score four goals in one match after scoring a second-half penalty goal in Uruguay's 8–0 victory.[13]
