For the first time since September 14th, Timothy Chandler earned a Bundesliga start for Eintracht Frankfurt.
The U.S. Men’s National Team veteran started, captained the side, and played the full 90 minutes on Sunday, but was unable to help his team avoid defeat at Schalke. Playing at the right wing back position, the 29-year-old finished the match with an 84% passing completion rate, while winning 12 of his 16 duels. He completed three tackles, won five of eight aerial battles, and made four clearances in defense. Chandler proved he can still contribute for Frankfurt, who remain in both the German Cup and Europa League as well. Up next is a home date with Cologne on Dec. 18th in midweek Bundesliga action.
Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson played well in Wigan Athletic’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town. Christian Pulisic started in Chelsea’s loss to Bournemouth, while Weston McKennie left Schalke’s win with a shoulder injury. Zack Steffen could not avoid an onslaught in a Bundesliga loss to RB Leipzig. Ian Harkes continued to start for Dundee United, Erik Palmer-Brown helped Austria Wien earn a tie in league play, and Lynden Gooch returned to play with Sunderland.
