SOCCER: U.S. cruises in Gold Cup win
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Chris Wondolowski’s misspelled jersey was about the only thing that was amiss for the U.S. men’s soccer team.
The national team jumped on Belize with Wondolowski’s first-half hat trick and cruised to a 6-1 victory to open the CONCAF Gold Cup tournament Tuesday night.
Landon Donovan had a goal and two assists, becoming the first national team player with at least 50 career goals and 50 assists.
But Wondolowski, who just had his first international goal last weekend, stole the show, sporting an extra “W” — “Wondowlowski” — on his red and white jersey when he popped in his three goals against Belize.
