While we host our own international friendly vs. Honduran-side C.D.S. Vida tonight at Buck Shaw, two of our mainstays, Wondolowski and Bernardez, will face off in Miami.
Wondo and the USMNT take on Muma and Honduras at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida tonight. While this match is only an international friendly for Klinsmann's squad, they're looking to get back to their winning ways after a late goal from Ecuador put a damper on their friendly last week. Meanwhile, Los Catrachos are looking to redeem themselves against CONCACAF opponents as well - coming off of a 2-0 loss against Mexico last week.
The match which kicks off at 5 p.m. PT will be aired live on ESPN, WatchESPN and Unimas.
We're continuing to go global! Two new #MilesToEpicenter billboards went up this week - one in LA and one in Toronto.
Needless to say, the LA board - located just a mile away from the StubHub Center - did not make LA fans happy on social media.

In our first homegrown player's first start at home, Tommy Thompson did not disappoint.
Soccer By Ives named the 19-year old the MLS Rookie of the Week after drawing seven fouls for the team against Real Salt Lake on Saturday, noting that he an important piece throughout the match.
SBI wasn't the only one to give Thompson some love, the Twittersphere was all about Tommy Time.

Wondo's warm welcome back included fans waiting around SFO for his arrival. We sure did miss this guy (and baby Emersyn, too).
Alright, Quakes fans - on the eve of the 2014 California Clasico, we can't help but think of our time at Stanford Stadium last year. You all remember it, that stoppage time goal by Gordo that left us celebrating until we couldn't scream anymore.
We thought we'd relive that moment through your creative captions! Put your witty-ness to the test with this fantastic goal that left Gonzalez and the rest of the Galaxy stunned (or is he smiling?).
Leave your caption on this blog post to enter to win four tickets to Quakes vs. Galaxy at Stanford Stadium tomorrow. We'll choose the winner by 4 p.m. PT today.
And tell your friends tickets are still available to this match of the summer! Let's pack the place and #BeatLA.
UPDATE: Congrats to John Muskivitch - for his simple, yet awesome comment "Air Gordon!" He's won 4 tickets to Saturday's Quakes vs. Galaxy at Stanford Stadium.
1. Massive style points to Bernardez and Los Catrachos - those blazers are sliiiick.
2. The World Cup starts in 2 days. TWO DAYS.
Proven goal-scoring machine and now Cosmopolitan Magazine eye-candy? Hey, Chris Wondolowski can do it all.
The Danville native and U.S. Men’s National Team forward graced the latest issue of Cosmo with other USMNT and MLS stars Graham Zusi, Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez and Kyle Beckerman. The five posed for the magazine’s feature on the World Cup, highlighting the best styles to wear while you watch. While the four were shirtless, of course – I mean, this is Cosmo were talking about – they did rock their World Cup style, donning the USMNT new World Cup kit’s shorts and socks.
Wondo wasn’t only featured shirtless this week, either. You can the Quakes striker in Rolling Stone's latest USMNT interview. Wondo talks his great affinity for all kinds of pizza, Jay-Z, his deep superstitions and more. Be sure to check out the full article here.
With only 4 days until the World Cup begins, the buzz is alive and well. Join the Quakes at our first official World Cup viewing party on Saturday in St. James Park.
