Chandler strikes in Nuremberg win

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Who says Timothy Chandler can't use his left foot? He scored the winner for Nuremberg in its 1-0 win over Kaiserslautern, ending its eight-game winless streak.

Chandler intercepted a ball on the right side, just outside the area, took one step with the ball toward the middle and fired a shot into the goal in the 13th minute.

The win moved Nuremberg out of the relegation zone into 13th place in the Bundesliga.

Chandler was one of five U.S. internationals who started on Saturday in Germany.

Steven Cherundolo returned to the starting lineup for Hannover 96 in its 1-1 tie with Hamburg. Fabian Johnson and Daniel Williams started for Hoffenheim its 1-1 tie with Freiburg, and Jermaine Jones went the distance for Schalke 04 its 2-0 loss at Borussia Dortmund in their Ruhr derby.
