Chris Wondolowski's explosive start to the 2016 campaign has resonated to the higher-ups of U.S. Soccer — the captain was named Sunday to the final United States Men's National Team roster for a pair of World Cup qualifying matches to be played against Guatemala. He'll be joined on the roster by San Jose goalkeeper David Bingham.

Wondolowski, who has logged a team-high 270 minutes on the pitch, has scored three goals in as many games this season, including one game-winning goal. Additionally, he leads the squad in shots (7), and shots on goal (4). Playing alongside him in the qualifying matches will be Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey, Bobby Wood and Gyasi Zardes.

Saturday's California Classico match was Bingham's first loss of the season. He's faced 14 shots this season thus far, made 14 saves, and has tallied one shutout. Brad Guzan, Tim Howard and William Yarbrough will be the additional goalkeepers on hand for the matches.
