Earthquakes Forward Chris Wondolowski Breaks All-Time MLS Goals Record
SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski scored his 145th, 146th, 147th and 148th MLS goals on Saturday against the Chicago Fire, eclipsing Landon Donovan's all-time record of 145 that has stood since 2014.
Facts about Wondolowski's pursuit of history:
He is the only player to score 10+ goals in nine consecutive seasons (2010-18). No other player in MLS history has done so in more than five straight.
All but four of his goals were scored with San Jose (144), most by any player with a single club in MLS history.
He has scored 67 goals on the road, most by any player in MLS history.
He has scored 41 game-winning goals, tied for the most in MLS history (Donovan).
He is the only player in league history to score against 24 different MLS teams, including all 23 currently competing in MLS and now-defunct Chivas USA.
He has scored 14 goals in 1-0 victories, most in MLS history.
Wondolowski has scored against 59 different goalkeepers during his MLS career, most in MLS history.
The native of Danville, Calif. played collegiately at Chico State University and is the only American-born player to score more than 50 MLS goals after competing collegiately at a Division II school.
Wondolowski made 15+ starts in a season for the first time in 2010 at the age of 27. Donovan's first such season was in 2001 at the age of 19, also with the Earthquakes.
