Chris Wondolowski


Christopher Elliott Wondolowski is an American soccer player who currently plays for San Jose Earthquakes in Major League Soccer and the United States national team. Wondolowski is MLS's top goal scorer in the 2012 season and has become one of the top strikers in Major League Soccer. He is referred by a rather strange moniker 'Wondo' because of his ability to put himself into scoring positions. He earned All-Bay Valley Athletic League first team and all-East Bay first team honors in 2000 and 2001. He was awarded two area "Player of the Year" awards in 2001 by local media. He led the Chico Rooks of the then Men's Premier Soccer League with 17 goals in the 2004 season. Wondolowski was drafted 41st overall in the 2005 MLS Supplemental Draft by the San Jose Earthquakes. He scored the first MLS goal of his profile on 30 August 2006 against the Chicago Fire. Wondolowski was traded to the San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for Cam Weaver in June 2009. He scored his first playoff goal with the series winning goal against New York in their playoff game, propelling San Jose to a 3-2 aggregate win. On October 6, 2012, Wondolowski became the San Jose Earthquakes' all-time leading goal-scorer at Colorado Rapids, where he scored his fourth career hat-trick. He won the MLS Golden Boot in 2010. On May 23, 2011, Wondolowski was named to the United States roster for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup competition.
