Chris Wondolowski has left a legacy that will be tough to surpass in Major League Soccer. Over the weekend he scored his 171st and final career goal in San Jose’s 1-1 draw against FC Dallas in the last game of the 2021 MLS regular season.

His honours in MLS

Wondo has played in 17 seasons in Major League Soccer and he will retire as the all-time goalscorer and he even managed to find the net in his last game. The 38-year-old played a total of 14 seasons with San Jose Earthquakes but couldn’t help the team qualify for a playoff place after a 10th place finish in the Western Conference.

"This organization is going to do big things in the future," Wondolowski told the crowd at PayPal Park in a ceremony organized immediately after the game. "Thank you to the fans. I can't thank you guys enough."

Wondolowski played in five MLS All-Star games, named three times in the Best XI in 17 seasons and the MVP in 2012. At international level, the veteran striker made 35 appearances with the USMNT and scored 11 goals. He also played in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
