Don't forget to watch the California Clasico in real time on Sunday at 6 p.m. PT on ESPN. Join other Quakes fans at the Brit in downtown San Jose for our official viewing party. It's goonie time, and this season could be our most memorable #neversaydie comeback yet.

Since the last one was such a success, Wondo and Wells Fargo have decided to team up for another Wondo Bobblehead Party. 

Chris Wondolowski will be fresh back from his time with the US Men's National Team, and he wants to see you at Wells Fargo in San Jose. 

Cancel all plans and meet Wondo this Friday:

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.

Who's the best team in Major League Soccer since mid-June? Fact: It's the San Jose Earthquakes.

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.
