For Clarence Goodson, Chris Wondolowski, Marvin Chavez and Victor Bernardez, tonight marks the finale of Hex Qualifying play for the 2014 World Cup.
There's a little bit more pressure on our Honduran representatives, though. They need to at least draw the winless Jamaican squad tonight - at Jamaica - to stamp their passage to Brazil for 2014.
Klinsmann's squad doesn't have a whole lot to worry about. The U.S. Men's National Team has already claimed their spot - and taken first place in their group - no matter the result at Panama tonight. That doesn't mean that Wondo and Goodson won't have anything to play for. The Quakes duo will be all in to prove to Klinsmann that they should be on the roster for this Brazil bound squad.
Both matches are set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. PT. Jamaica vs. Honduras will be shown on beIN Sport en Espanol and beIN Play; USA at Panama can be seen on beIN Sport.
Cordell Cato will represent Trinidad and Tobago in today's international friendly against New Zealand. The match that kicks off at 3:15 p.m. PT will not be shown on local television.
It may not be a Quakes match day, but Wondo, Goodson, Bernardez and Chavez are suiting up for three points tonight.
As of yesterday, Wondo and Goodson were called in to the U.S. squad for the final pair of World Cup Qualifiers. Although Klinsmann's squad has already booked their ticket to Brazil for 2014, the Red, White and Blue look to secure their group's first place seed in the final two matches of World Cup Qualifying group play. The U.S. face a desperate-for-points Jamaican squad at Sporting Park in Kansas City tonight (3:30 p.m. PT, ESPN).
Bernardez, Chavez and the Hondurans have a little bit more to prove tonight. The squad needs a win and a draw in their final two matches to secure their place in the 2014 World Cup. Los Catrachos host Costa Rica tonight (3 p.m. PT, beIN Sport) and next face Jamaica on Tuesday.
So call in sick for the afternoon, and find your watch party at one of the Quakes' preferred pub partners here.

Other than the Quakes vs. Vancouver game on Saturday night, do you have plans for the weekend?
Join us at the 2013 Santa Clara Art & Wine Festival. The annual event, held inside Central Park, features the talents of local and regional artists with nearly 175 booths, 25 community groups serving international foods, four vinters pouring fine wines, micro-brewed beer, live entertainment on three stages, and the popular Kids Kingdom. You get the pitcture. It's going to be a fun event, and the San Jose Earthquakes Shakers will be there with KEZR and KBAY.
The best part? It's free to the public. The festival runs on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
What do you think is going on here?

No - the Bash Brothers are not involved. No - it's not a rookie either. Apparently, Adam Jahn has another costume.
Pro Wrestling Revolution brought four Luchadores to Quakes training on Tuesday. You would think those masks would get in the way - but man, they can play.
Stay tuned for a little video coming your way soon. You can expect Luchadores dancing, capes flying, even a little closelining of Evan Newton... the whole shebang.
Come see them in person this weekend, too. Don't miss the Luchadores at Fiesta Latina Night when the Quakes face Vancouver Whitecaps FC this Saturday, 7:30 p.m. at Buck Shaw Stadium.
Last night, history was made yet again for the USMNT. It was another #DosACero type of night at Crew Stadium in Columbus. With their victory over Mexico and the Honduras-Panama draw, the USMNT's dreams of earning a berth to their seventh straight World Cup were fulfilled.
Right in the middle of it all was Quakes defender Clarence Goodson. After being called in on just Saturday by head man Klinsmann, Goodson put in a solid 90 minutes for the national team squad - anchoring the defense well and causing havoc in US set pieces.
Nothing but praise for the Quakes man from the critics, either. Check out the most recent player ratings here.
