[AMERICANS ABROAD] American-German Timothy Chandler had one goal and two assists in his first start for Nuremberg, leading it to a 4-1 win at VfB Stuttgart in Germany's Bundesliga on Saturday. To watch the highlights ...

Chandler set up Timmy Simons in the 11th minute and his excellent cross was headed home by Julian Schieber after 28 minutes.

After Nuremberg reduced the deficit, Chandler restored Nuremberg's two-goal lead when he scored from close range on a pass from Schieber.

Born to a father who was an American GI and German mother, Timothy Chandler became the latest American-German to play in the Bundesliga when he debuted at the age of 20 for Nuremberg this winter.

His rise follows a switch from Eintracht Frankfurt to Nuremberg last summer and a fall spent on Nuremberg's under-23 team.

Chandler, who plays on the right side in the back and midfield, is eligible to play internationally for Germany or the United States, and he could follow in the footsteps of U.S. internationals Thomas Dooley, David Wagner, Michael Mason and Jermaine Jones -- all German-bred players with no other connection to the USA than that their fathers were American GIs.

    Let's hope that Bradley will draft him into the National Team camp before he start scoring goals left and right and Germany start paying attention to him. Let's not loose him like We have lost Rossi by the bumbling idiot Arena.
