Last Game vs. Chivas USA
Earthquakes 1, Chivas USA 0; April 26, 2014; Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
Portuguese playmaker Yannick Djalo scored his first career MLS goal to lead the San Jose Earthquakes to a 1-0 win over Chivas USA at a sold-out Buck Shaw Stadium. Djalo came on at halftime and created a flurry of offense. His attacks bore fruit in the 66th minute when he finished a Shea Salinas cross with a spectacular volley into the far post. Minutes later, Chris Wondolowski appeared to double San Jose’s lead after tapping home a through ball from Salinas, but the goal didn’t stand after he was whistled for offsides. Jon Busch earned his second straight shutout with three saves for the Quakes.
