Chris Wondolowski has trouble scoring goals the international level. Chris Wondowlowski doesn’t have that problem. On Monday, Wondolowski scored a first-half hat-trick for the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team in its 6-1 win over Belize. He filled up the nets while wearing a jersey that had his name misspelled on the back. The U.S. striker’s name was spelled: W-o-n-d-o-w-l-o-i-w-s-k-i. Onlookers noticed the mistake, and Wondolowski changed into a jersey on which his name was properly spelled at halftime. He didn’t score in the second half, by the way. Jesse Bignami, the person in charge of producing the U.S. national team’s jerseys, took the blame for sneaking an extra W into Wondolowski’s last name. @ChrisWondo and I having a good laugh about last night. "I'm sowwwwwy Wondo!"— Jesse Bignami (@jessebignami) July 10, 2013 Maybe Bignami should take the credit. Wondolowski’s goals powered the U.S., as it started its 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign on ...

Soccer player's name misspelled on jersey

Admittedly, Wondolowski can be a mouthful to say (a lot people just call him “Wondo”). But, jeez, you only have to spell it one letter at a time, equipment manager guy. Not like the jersey snafu was a bad thing for the Earthquakes striker; he had a hat trick before halftime in the USMNT’s Gold Cup opener vs. Belize. So, maybe the extra “W” should be here to stay.

Wondolowski finding his scoring touch

At length, Chris Wondolowski was all smiles. Gliding through the tunnel underneath JELD-WEN Field here, he beamed in a way he hadn't yet after a U.S. men's national team game. He'd spent the first half of the USA's 6-1 Gold Cup opening win over Belize on Tuesday in a jersey which had adorned his name with an extra W. As it turned out, it was a W for every goal that...
