For sure, Wondo is up against more popular choices for the striker role. Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore, Eddie Johnson and others, all top players, all capable, all worthy talent. But Wondo is like a talisman, a charm, and World Cup teams of the second rank need a magic maker if the path is to go long, to be an adventure. Winning is not always about method and reason especially in tournaments. There would be no bloody Shakespearean drama if inert logic trumped the dynamo, the catalyst, the Wondo.

Canadian women's head coach John Herdmann says he's tired of seeing his team lose to the United States. Winless against its arch rival since 2001, Canada dropped its latest contest — a friendly between the two nations on Friday night — 1-0 on a goal by Canadian-born Sydney Leroux. "We're disappointed because we're sick of saying 'good try,' 'well done,' and 'we battled hard,"' Herdmann said. "At some point we've got to beat this team and if it's not now, then when? And hopefully it's (at the Women's World Cup) in 2015." Leroux, who is a U.S. citizen, scored in the 78th minute to break a scoreless tie against Canada and give the U.S. the victory in both teams' 2014 opener. It was Leroux's fourth goal in the past three games, with two of them coming against the country of her birth.
