SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Chris Wondolowski scored four times to pass Landon Donovan for most career MLS goals, and the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Chicago Fire 4-1 on Saturday.
Wondolowski tied Donovan's record at 145 with his first goal in the 21st minute. Shea Salinas sent in a curling pass that Wondolowski punched home from just inside the 6-yard box.
He has shined with little fanfare - just the way "Wondo" prefers it as he focuses on the preparation he still so enjoys and being an example for young teammates - playing at home in the Bay Area, having grown up in the East Bay suburb of Danville. He went to college at tiny Division II Chico State, not part of an elite youth national team program. He didn't even make his debut with the U.S. national team until six days before his 28th birthday in January 2011.
