Rolling Stone magazine recently interviewed soccer player Chris “Wondo” Wondolowski, a member of the Kiowa tribe who currently plays for the San Jose Earthquakes. He has the honor of playing for the U.S. Men's National team when they head to the World Cup to compete in Brazil this month.
Rolling Stone: It's still unclear if you'll be starting or coming off the bench during the World Cup; how do you see your role on the team?
Wondo: I think my role's still being defined; if I'm not starting, I want to push the starters to make them better. I want to start, I want to get as many minutes as I can, but If I'm coming off the bench and we need a goal late, I'm going to be ready for it. If I do get an opportunity, I'm going to be ready to hit the back of the net. You never know when your chance is going to come, and you've got to embrace it.
Check out some of his international goal highlights from previous games:
For the full interview head on over to Rolling Stone. We wish “Wondo” and the rest of the U.S. Men's team good luck!
