Chelsea Vs. MLS, 2012 All-Star Game: Of Course Chris Wondolowski Scores

The MLS All-Stars have struck first and, of course, it was Chris Wondolowski who scored it.

The San Jose Earthquakes striker is not just the league's leading scorer this season, but he is on pace to set a new MLS single-season goal-scoring record. So naturally, he got into the action in the All-Star Game, too. Wondolowski scored in the 21st minute to put the MLS team ahead of Chelsea, 1-0, and ignite half of a very much split crowd at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

That Wondolowski scored wasn't the only unsurprising thing -- it's also how he scored. The ball got wide left to Thierry Henry, who crossed. John Terry made a hash of his attempted clearance and the ball fell right in front. Wondolowski just had to tap it in, which is the most Wondolowski way to ever score a goal. The ball just finds him and he doesn't miss the goal.
