Chris Wondolowski, the World Cup veteran, second-leading scorer in MLS history and Bay Area native, joined Dan Dibley and Rick Tittle for this week’s episode of “Golazo Supremo.”

One goal shy of tying Landon Donovan for most goals in MLS history, Wondo reflected on his improbable rise and also hinted that he soon could be hanging up his boots.

“To be honest, this year, I think I’m going to do a lot of thinking at the end of this year,” Wondolowski said. “I’m hoping a lot of my goals come to fruition (and) come to plan. And, if they do, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is my last year.”

“But, I am going to re-evaluate. I love coming in everyday. I love coming to practice. The game’s are what I live for but coming in for practice is still a fun thing for me. And so, as long as that’s there, I want to continue to do that but I also don’t want to be that guy that needs a walker to be out there on the field. So, it’s a tough battle.”

Also on the pod, Wondolowski discussed his favorite goal, the opportunity to match Donovan and his infamous World Cup letdown in 2014.
