SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Back with the San Jose Earthquakes after their nearly monthlong stint on the U.S. national team and training in Sao Paulo, Clarence Goodson and Chris Wondolowski believe Brazil will be ready for the World Cup stage come June.

Goodson and Wondolowski hope they will return to Brazil in June as part of the Americans' 23-man World Cup roster.
