One U.S. Men’s National Team defender made a successful return to his club team following the international break, while a U.S. youth product joined his club’s first team for the first time in Sunday’s Serie A action.
Timmy Chandler returned to the Eintracht Frankfurt lineup on Sunday and helped lead the club to a 2-1 win over Aron Johannsson’s Werder Bremen. Johannsson did not dress for Sunday’s match, one which saw Chandler go a full 90 minutes in another solid performance for his club.
Josh Perez didn’t get into the action on Sunday, but the U.S. U-20 Men’s National Team forward did make the bench for the first time with Serie A side Fiorentina. Perez, who signed with the club earlier this year following his 18th birthday, scored four goals and added four assists for the club’s reserve side before earning the first team call-up.
