Wondolowski scores twice, US beats Cuba

SANDY, Utah — Chris Wondolowski scored two more goals to raise his total to five in two matches as the United States beat Cuba 4-1 to make the Gold Cup quarterfinals on Saturday.

Landon Donovan converted his second penalty kick of the tournament for his 53rd international goal, Joe Corona got his first international goal and Stuart Holden made his first start in nearly three years for the U.S., which has reached the quarterfinals of all 12 Gold Cups.

Wondolowski scored a first-half hat trick in Tuesday's 6-1 win over Belize, when his jersey was misspelled "Wondowlowski." He started this match with his name spelled correct, but on the bench. He replaced Herculez Gomez early in the second half and scored the final two goals in the 66th and 85th minutes. Superstitious, he had an extra "W'' stitched on the inside of his jersey.

Before a crowd of 17,597 at Rio Tinto Stadium, Jose Ciprian Alfonso put Cuba ahead in the 36th minute. He beat defender Oguchi Onyewu to a cutback pass from Ariel Martinez, and scored.
