Following a 6-0 rout of Guatemala last Friday, Klinsmann's squad is ready to begin Gold Cup play. The USMNT face tournament first-timer Belize in Portland tonight.
Wondolowski, who tallied his first international goal on Friday, and recent Quakes signee and USMNT veteran Goodson, who also scored for the red, white and blue last week, will both be in the mix to help Klinsmann's squad to victory.
Be sure to cheer on our guys tonight. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. PT on Fox Soccer. Don't watch alone: find your watch party at one of our preferred pub partners.
Thanks to the Ron Burgundy and Anchorman, we have a headline for Friday's USMNT 6-0 romping of Guatemala: the USMNT stay classy in San Diego.
Helping them stay classy were two Earthquakes in the mix. Clarence Goodson, the newest Quake and veteran USMNT defender, saw his fourth USMNT goal on Friday, and Quake captain Chris Wondolowski scored his first goal in the Red, White and Blue. Congratulations to both on a standout performance.
The USMNT begin Gold Cup play on July 9 vs. Belize, kickoff at 8 p.m. PT on Fox Soccer.

Saturday night was a special night for everyone at California Clasico, but it but it was a little sweeter for one little boy and his mother.
Jackson Fyffe, 5, went to the game expecting to score the first ceremonial goal before the game. However, he was rewarded with so much more than just a goal.
Jackson's mother, Lt. Colonel Celene Fyfee, surprised him on the field after being deployed in Afghanistan since December. The reunion was a complete surprise for Jackson, and as you can see from these photos and video- it was nothing short of amazing.
Jackson still got to score the first goal like he planned, but his mom scored it with him.
Marvin Chavez taught a little lesson to the Galaxy on Saturday.
And laughed about it.
It's the GIF(t) that keeps giving.

Flash Gordon's brace led the Quakes to an unforgettable win over rival the LA Galaxy. Watch his incredible stoppage time game winner paired with the call from Anthony Passarelli at KLIV radio:
