Earthquakes Forward Chris Wondolowski Named to 2019 MLS All-Star Team
SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski is among 26 players named to the 2019 Major League Soccer All-Star Team. It marks his fifth All-Star appearance, having previously been selected in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2016. The MLS All-Stars will face Spain's Atlético de Madrid at Exploria Stadium in Orlando on Wednesday, July 31 (5 p.m. PT; FS1, UniMas, TSN and TVA Sports).
Wondolowski, 36, has scored eight goals this season, tied for fourth most in Major League Soccer. He is the league's top scorer among players with fewer than 900 minutes played (783) and ranks third in MLS in goals per 90 minutes among all players with at least two tallies in 2019.
Wondolowski scored all eight of his goals in his last four MLS appearances, including four against Chicago on May 18 to tie and break Landon Donovan's career goals record.
