Defender Timmy Chandler is set to commit his future to the Americans rather than leave open the possibility of playing for Germany. With regular right back Steve Cherundolo sidelined by a knee injury, Chandler appears likely to start Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, when the U.S. opens the final round of World Cup qualifying at Honduras.
