World Cup: USA, San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski "gutted" about missed chance vs. Belgium

It's the scoring opportunity that San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski will probably be replaying in his mind over and over for days to come.

In Tuesday's 2-1 Round of 16 loss to Belgium, a 93rd minute header in the box by Jermaine Jones gave Wondolowski a 1-on-1 against Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. But the 2012 MLS MVP took it first time off the bounce and sent it high of the frame (WATCH IT HERE).

With the score tied 0-0 and less than a minute left in the match, it would have proven to be the game-winner and Wondolowski is feeling bad about it.

He let everyone know on Twitter:

Wondolowski also talked to reporters after the game about the miss, saying, "I would be lying if I said I won't be thinking about it. Being a forward you make some, you miss some. I know that. But, geez, I really wish that would have gone in.

"I thought that I had a chance to really seal it up and I didn't convert it. It is a fickle game. It is one of those things that I really feel will make me stronger – it is going to keep driving me. I really did feel I was going to get another opportunity and if I did, I was going to bury it. I just wasn't able to find myself in the right spot and didn't find another opportunity, but I should have put it away before then."
