Donovan extends his #USMNT records to 52 goals & 51 assists. He's the first player to score in six Gold Cups.— Paul Carr (@PCarrESPN) July 10, 2013
Predictably, despite that being a major milestone in US Soccer history, all the headlines were concerned with Wondowlowski [sic] and his hat trick.
- The Cascadia papers were on the scene, and they certainly liked Wondowlowski's [sic] performance. The Portland paper wrote that the United States rolled behind Wondo's performance, while the Seattle paper called Wondo's performance marvelous in the USA rout. So we've got Wondowloski [sic] as a steamroller clearing a path in which the US were able to follow to victory, and we've got Wondo marveling Belize into complacency as the US cause their team to rout.
- The nation's capital got in the act too, saying that Klinsmann's plan to transform US soccer looked masterful against the minnow that is Belize. Certainly acknowledging Belize is a minnow in CONCACAF is a step in the right direction. There's also no doubting that the day belonged to US soccer. Still, not yet time to claim the mission is complete.
- Goal.com? Wondolowksi score his first US hat trick. Landon Donovan getting to be the first 50/50 man apparently not as cool of a milestone.
- In case you didn't watch the match last night, Wondowlowski [sic] came out in the first half with an extra w on his jersey. Thus all the sic.
