BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, November 9, 2012
After nearly a year away from the team, Nurnberg right back Timothy Chandler will return to the United States national team next week for a friendly against Russia.

Chandler, 22, made his debut with the US team in 2011 in a friendly against Argentina. To this day, however, he has only played in friendlies and is not captied to the US team.

Earlier this year, US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said that Chandler was not committed to the US team leading to speculation that the German-born fullback was holding out hopes for a callup from the German national team.

"We can confirm that Timmy has accepted a callup," FC Nurnberg press officer Katharina Wildermuth told YA on Friday.

Through the first 10 games of the Bundesliga season, Nurnberg sit in 14th place with 11 points.

I think this is good news as the US needs a RB of the future... but I have to say I really hate this timing wise... he's being called in for another camp with a game that if he plays will not cap tie him. I would tell him he cannot play for the US without playing in a game that counts, but I guess the idea is to get him in here now for Russia in the hopes he could be counted on for the HEX early next year. Even with this, I still think it's good news and should help the US going forward.
