1. Quakes making moves: the club acquires Salvadoran national team midfielder Jaime Alas on loan.

Watch the match tonight on Fox Soccer. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. PT.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Wondolowski became the first player in USMNT history to record back-to-back multiple goal games in one tournament. Wondo's hat-trick against Belize and his second-half brace versus Cuba set the record, and he could break one more.
If Wondo scores two against Costa Rica in the USMNT's final match of Gold Cup group play on Tuesday, he will again be the only player in USMNT history to score two or more goals in each of three straight matches for the US squad.
See if Wondo can make history again - tune in to Fox Soccer on Tuesday at 5 p.m. PT for USAvCRC.
Wondo nets two for the USMNT, and the Quakes win in front of another sold-out crowd at Buck Shaw Stadium.
Needless to say, it wasn't a bad day to be a Quakes fan.
It's safe to say that Wondolowski made his name heard in the soccer world after brace against Cuba on Saturday. Not only did he have all the Quakes fans talking, but he had some of the biggest names in the sport singing his praises:
He did again, folks.
While wearing three W's on his jersey (one was pressed on the inside), Chris Wondolowski slotted another two goals for the USMNT against Cuba. His sixth in three games, his fifth goal in Gold Cup play, Wondo is now tied with Clint Dempsey for fifth on the USMNT Gold Cup scorers list.
And he still has a game in group play to go. An incredible achievement.

Wondo's wish is USMNT kit man Jesse Bignami's command.
True, it was Bignami's mistake in the first place, but it ended up being one of the most memorable moments in U.S. Soccer history. A hat-trick and three w's later, superstitious Wondolowski will sport an extra W on his jersey for every national team game.
Don't worry, though, he's not changing his name to Wondowlowski. Bignami came up with the perfect solution and pressed a W on the inside of Wondo's kit.
So will the magic of the three W's continue? We shall see - tune in to Fox tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. PT as the USMNT continue Gold Cup group play against Cuba.
