Chris Wondolowski Life

Christopher Elliott Wondolowski (born January 28, 1983) is an American soccer player who plays for San Jose Earthquakes as a forward.

Wondolowski was the top scorer for MLS in 2010 and 2012, as well as being named the 2012 Most Valuable Player, and he has been named one of Major League Soccer's top strikers.

He was a member of the Houston Dynamo during 2006 and 2007, and he was active in their MLS Cup victories in 2006 and 2007 before returning to the re-established Earthquakes in 2009.

He is the highest scorer in Major League Soccer, as well as the first player in league history to score 150 or more goals in a regular season.

In addition, Wondolowski is the only player in league history to have scored ten or more goals in ten consecutive seasons as of September 28, 2019.

He also holds the most MLS goals on the road since 2011, winning the 2013 edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cups, and he also competed at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Personal life

Chris is the brother of fellow professional soccer player Stephen Wondolowski. He is of half Native American descent through his mother (Janis Hoyt) who was born into the Kiowa tribe from Oklahoma, of which Chris himself is a member. "Bowe Dye," Bau Daigh's word, means "warrior coming over the hill." His paternal grandfather and his family, who immigrated from Warsaw, Poland, immigrated to the United States at the age of seven. He married Lindsey in 2009, and Emersyn was born on December 23, 2013. Brynlee, the couple's second daughter, was born on March 10, 2016.

In 2013, Wondolowski was named on the Division II Tribute Team, honoring his time spent at Chico State.


Chris Wondolowski Career

Club career

In the fourth round of the 2005 MLS Supplemental Draft, Wondolowski was selected as the 41st overall pick by the San Jose Earthquakes. Despite the fact that he appeared on only two MLS appearances for San Jose in 2005, he led the Earthquakes reserve team in scoring with eight goals in 12 games.

He and the rest of his Earthquakes teammates travelled to Houston for the 2006 season and led the reserve team in scoring, totaling 13 goals in 11 games. On August 30, 2006, he scored his first MLS goal against the Chicago Fire.

In 2007, Wondolowski scored against Pachuca in the CONCACAF Champions' Cup semifinal round, but Houston was eliminated in the second leg. In a 3–0 victory over FC Dallas on August 23, the same year, Wondolowski scored his first US Open Cup goal. On July 12, 2007, he scored his second MLS goal, a tap-in against Chicago.

In 2008, Wondolowski continued to make appearances for the reserve squad as well as the first team in various tournaments. In the US Open Cup loss to Charleston Battery, he captained the team, scoring his shot in the penalty shootout as well.

On May 16, 2009, he scored his fourth goal for Houston against the New York Red Bulls.

In June 2009, Wondolowski was traded to the San Jose Earthquakes in exchange for Cam Weaver. With the move to San Jose, Wondolowski began to play more regularly and appeared in 14 games in which he scored 3 goals for San Jose.

In 2010, Wondolowski had a breakout season, leading San Jose into the MLS Playoffs for the first time. The 18 regular season goals were the highest in the league, and Wondolowski was rewarded with his first MLS Golden Boot. San Jose defeated New York 3–2 aggregate victory in their playoff game, with series winning goal against New York.

In the fifth minute of play against FC Dallas, Wondolowski's first brace of 2011 got off to a promising start. After receiving a ball in the box, Wondolowski took the ball off a volley with time to turn and punch the ball past a helpless Kevin Hartman. Dallas was only the 23rd minute after being unable to clear the ball on a set piece. He scored 16 goals and tied for 1st overall, but he missed the Golden Boot on an assist tie breaker.

In February 2012, San Jose signed Wondolowski to a new deal. Terms of delivery were not revealed.

Wondolowski was elected to the 2012 MLS All-Star Game against Chelsea. He was defended by John Terry and scored in the 21st minute, despite being defended by him. Following Wondolowski's arrival in Philadelphia for the All-Star festivities and the game itself, NBC Sports Network aired an episode of MLS 36. Terry is shown personally thanking Wondolowski at halftime on his march, and that it was a "nightmare" to cover him. Wondolowski became Colorado Rapids' all-time top goal scorer on October 6, 2012, his fourth hat-trick appearance on the track. He also tied Roy Lassiter's MLS record of 27 goals in a season last season. Wondolowski earned the first and only MLS player to win four times in a single season in a single season during the months of April, June, September, and October.

After arriving in San Jose in 2009, Wondolowski's high scoring average dropped a bit in 2013. The striker scored just 13 goals in all competitions, the lowest total since arriving in San Jose in 2009. The poor showing could have been largely due to the fact that he suffered with a broken foot in the majority of 2013.

Following Carlos Ruiz's lead and Juan Pablo Angel's success, Wondolowski became the third MLS player to ever have double-digit goal totals for five seasons in a row on August 24, 2014. For the fifth consecutive season, Wondolowski scored 14 goals and commanded the San Jose Earthquakes.

Wondolowski scored his 100th goal in MLS play on May 24, 2015 against Orlando City SC at Levi's Stadium. He became the ninth player in MLS history to do so.

In a 1–1 home draw with Seattle Sounders FC on September 11, 2016, Wondolowski scored his tenth goal of the 2016 season, making him the first player in league history to do so in more than five seasons.

Wondolowski made his 229th appearance for San Jose against Atlanta United FC at Bobby Dodd Stadium on July 4, 2017, defeating Ramiro Corrales to tie for the most starts made for the team. His 66th minute score tied him with Landon Donovan for the league's most goals scored on the road at 63 points, and he left just expansion side Minnesota United FC for the second time this season.

In San Jose's U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal match against the Los Angeles Galaxy on July 10, 2017, teammate Matheus Silva, who almost drowned the week before while swimming at Lake Tahoe, wore the number 38. He scored a brace, helped by Tommy Thompson, to lead the Earthquakes to a 3–2 victory and their first appearance in club history.

After Joshua Yaro brought down Shea Salinas in the box, Wondolowski became the first player in league history to score 10 or more goals in eight consecutive seasons on August 19, 2017. After finishing the 2017 regular season with 13 goals and 8 assists, he received his seventh overall and fourth consecutive Team MVP award on October 22, 2017.

In his 338th MLS appearance, Wondolowski scored four goals against the Chicago Fire at Avaya Stadium on May 18, 2019, tying and smashing Landon Donovan's goal-scoring record.

In his last professional match, a 1–1 draw against FC Dallas, Wondolowski scored his 171st goal for the Earthquakes on November 7, 2021. Following the election, he resigned.

International career

Following his successful stint with the Earthquakes in the 2010 season, which included winning the 2010 MLS Golden Boot, Wondolowski was invited to Winter Training Camp with the United States men's national soccer team. In a friendly against Chile against Argentina in January 22, 2011 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, Kevin's first cap with the national team came at the end of the three-week camp.

Wondolowski was selected to the United States roster for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup competition on May 23, 2011.

In 2012, Wondolowski was called into the United States' initial 27-man roster for a string of three friendlies and two World Cup qualifiers for the United States' first two qualifiers, but only as a sub in a friendly 0–0 draw against Canada.

Wondolowski scored his first international goal in a match against Guatemala at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California, and four days later, wearing a shirt on which his name was spelled "Wondowlowski," he scored a hat-trick against Belize in the first half at Jeld-Wen Field in Portland, Oregon. At Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, he continued his scoring against Cuba with a brace against Cuba. Wondolowski scored a brace against South Korea at StubHub Center in Carson, California, on February 1, 2014, adding two more goals to his tally.

When on National Team service, Wondolowski wears an extra 'W' on the inside of his shirt since the Gold Cup. This occurred after scoring a hat-trick against Belize despite wearing an extra W on his shirt by mistake.

In 2017, he was chosen to the preliminary 40-man roster for the Gold Cup but he was not included in the tournament. He was admitted to the 26-man roster for the World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica on September 2 and September 5, as well as Honduras.

Wondolowski was selected as one of the final 23 players selected for the 2014 FIFA World Cup to represent the United States. Wondolowski came in as a substitute for Clint Dempsey in the 87th minute during a Group G match against Portugal on June 22, 2014. In the 72nd minute of the Group of 16 elimination game against Belgium, he came in as a substitute for Graham Zusi. Wondolowski failed to direct his shot from just yards out in the final minutes of normal time in what had then been a 0–0 tie, but Belgium still won in extra time. "I'm gutted to have let everyone down, but especially my coworkers," Wondolowski said about the missed opportunity. In extra time, Wondolowski almost set up the game-tying goal, but Clint Dempsey missed it.

Chris Wondolowski was selected as one of the final 23 players selected for the Copa América Centenario to represent the United States.

What if A-Rod signed for the Red Sox?What if Chris Wondolowski had scored THAT goal at the World Cup?And what if Charlie Ward chose the NFL over the NBA?How three of sport's biggest fork-in-the-road moments could have had VERY different outcomes, December 19, 2023
When thinking back on what might have been, certain sporting events come to mind. One little action or change couldn't have made concrete facts we know today to look different, right? Wrong. Alex Rodriguez in a Red Sox uniform nearly finished before Major League Baseball vetoed the offer. Chris Wondolowski will be a household name in sport. And how about Charlie Ward suiting up for the New York Jets?
