San Jose Earthquakes forward Chris Wondolowski ended the regular season with 27 goals to claim the 2012 Budweiser Golden Boot, which is given to the top scorer in MLS at the end of each regular season.

Wondolowski becomes the first player in MLS history to lead the league in goals for three successive seasons, and his 27 this campaign tie the MLS record set by Roy Lassiter in 1996.

Since the beginning of his MLS career in 2005, Wondolowski has tallied 68 goals, although 64 of those have come since the 2009 season.
