Timothy Chandler Timmy Chandler USMNTs World Cup Hopes Dealt a Blow Due to Injury: Daily Soccer Report

Timmy Chandler’s hopes of playing with the US Men’s National Team at this summer’s World Cup have been dealt a blow after picking up an injury that will rule him out of the rest of the Bundesliga season.

Chandler suffered a torn meniscus in February but hasn’t yet recovered from the injury. His head coach at Nuremberg says he won’t play again during the club season, and now faces a race against time to return to full fitness in time for the World Cup this June.

In other related news, 35-year-old USMNT veteran Steve Cherundolo is set to retire, while brighter news for the USA is that Julian Green has agreed to play for the United States instead of Germany (more news regarding that soon on World Soccer Talk).

One thought on “Timmy Chandler USMNT’s World Cup Hopes Dealt a Blow Due to Injury: Daily Soccer Report”

  1. Huge blow for the US losing the German league legend Cherundolo, and losing up and coming fullback Chandler for the World Cup. Guess it’s Cameron’s spot to lose now.

    But the good news is Julian Green joined the #USMNT!
