Four days later, the U.S. travels to take on Panama at Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City, live at 10 p.m. ET (beIN Sports, Telemundo and NBC Universo).
A member of the U.S. roster at the 2014 World Cup, Wondolowski is a three-time M.L.S. Best XI selection, two-time Golden Boot winner and won the league’s Most Valuable Player award in 2012.
