Due to the international break, the Earthquakes are not in action this weekend. San Jose will return to the field against the Portland Timbers in the Fourth Round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday, June 14 at Providence Park. The Quakes will have three representatives at Copa America this week, with Chris Wondolowski and the United States taking on Costa Rica on Tuesday, June 7 at Solider Field in Chicago (5 p.m. PT/FS1) and Anibal Godoy and Alberto Quintero representing Panama against Bolivia later today at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL (4 p.m. PT/FS1).
