Chris Wondolowski breaks MLS all-time goals record

Major League Soccer has a new goal king. 

Chris Wondolowski broke the all-time MLS record for career regular season goals, surpassing Landon Donovan with four goals in a 4-1 Week 12 win over the Chicago Fire. The second goal, No. 146 in Wondolowski's career, broke Landon Donovan's all-time MLS record.

Fittingly, Wondo did it in front of his home fans at Avaya Stadium:

With the four tallies against the Fire, Wondolowski sits at 148 career goals and counting. He is the first player to score four goals in a match since September 23, 2017. He is also the fifth player in MLS history to have five career hat tricks.

The record-breaking goal was also his 41st game-winning goal, tying another one of Donovan's MLS records.

The San Jose Earthquakes' captain is now alone atop the record books, adding the all-time goals mark to his list of career accolades: Two-time Golden Boot presented by Audi winner (2010, 2012), 2012 MLS MVP winner, three-time Best XI selection and four-time All-Star.

And Wondolowski, 36, still has time to extend his record for a while longer. 

Congrats, Wondo.
