Look, it was never going to be close between the U.S. and Belize in their Gold Cup match. The Belize team is about half amateur players, with their jerseys donated by Nike and their coach donated by the U.S. team. But the Americans still put on an impressive show, particularly striker Chris Wondolowski. A relative newcomer, Wondo (as I will call him from here on out) was a combination of lucky and good in putting away three first half goals. We have all three for your perusal.

First goal, 12th minute:

Second goal, 37th minute:

Third goal, 41st minute:

Landon Donovan also had a goal and two assists, making him just about the best American soccer player ever. All in all, a pretty good night — if you consider trouncing your little infant brother a good night.
