Topic - Timmy Chandler
Timmy Chandler became the latest World Cup hopeful to suffer an injury setback over the weekend, another potential blow to the U.S. team's depth as it prepares for a friendly at Ukraine next month.
Bayern Munich overcame a difficult start to beat Nuremberg 2-0 in the Bavarian derby and restore its 13-point advantage in the Bundesliga on Saturday, while Borussia Dortmund routed Werder Bremen 5-1.
Runaway Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich continues its quest to break records with a derby at Nuremberg, Borussia Dortmund visits troubled Werder Bremen and Schalke hosts Hannover in a clash between two sides unbeaten this year. At the other end of the table, Hamburger SV desperately needs a good result against Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Braunschweig visits Eintracht Frankfurt for a relegation six-pointer. Bayer Leverkusen gets the 20th round underway at Borussia Moenchengladbach, where it hopes to consolidate second place. Here are five things to know ahead of the weekend:
Goalkeeper Tim Howard was the captain for the match in San Pedro Sula as the Americans opened the final round of qualifying in North and Central America and the Caribbean. Chandler took over on the right from Steve Cherundolo, sidelined by a knee injury.
Clint Dempsey put the Americans ahead in the 36th minute but the Americans, using a new-look defense that featured Omar Gonzalez and Timmy Chandler, gave up the lead when Juan Carlos Garcia tied the score in the 40th at San Pedro Sula.
Defender Timmy Chandler is among 24 players selected for the United States' World Cup qualifier at Honduras on Wednesday and is set to make his competitive debut for the Americans.
With injuries to Steve Cherundolo and Fabian Johnson, and Danny Williams' lack of playing time, the U.S. has defensive worries heading into next week's World Cup qualifier at Honduras, the opener in the final round to get to next year's tournament in Brazil.
For all the talk about the strides soccer has made in the United States, results of late have been stark and disappointing.
Two years ago, Fabian Johnson was starting for Germany in the final of the European Under-21 Championship alongside such future stars as Mesut Oezil, Sami Khedira and Manuel Neuer.
Jurgen Klinsmann is focusing on long-term changes and not short-term results. And that's OK with his boss at the U.S. Soccer Federation.
Defender Timmy Chandler has covered a lot of soccer ground recently _ from toiling away in Germany's fourth division three months ago to making an impressive debut with the U.S. national team.
Chandler said playing with the U.S. team has been "a dream come true," no matter what the future holds.
"This 10-day international break with the U.S. national team has been great in every way," he said.
