Timothy Chandler: “The target is to go far at the World Cup”

    In the exclusive interview for sports betting website Betway, Timothy Chandler, the Eintracht Frankfurt defender, reflects on the ‘great experience’ of playing international football for the United States.

    Timothy Chandler was born in Frankfurt and has played all his life in Germany, but he decided to play for the USA national team. Chandler began his career at Sportfreunde Oberau as well as time with Eintracht Frankfurt before transferring to 1. FC Nürnberg in the summer of 2010.

    In March 2011, Chandler was selected by Bob Bradley as part of the United States’s 24-man squad set to face Paraguay and Argentina in international friendlies. Despite playing in some friendlies, he did not make his competitive debut until 2013 when he took part in a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Honduras.

    The Americans lost the game 2-1, but it was a special day for the then 20-year-old Chandler: “I think this was one of the biggest things in my career and meant a lot to me,” he said.

    Timothy Chandler revealed that he made friends among his new teammates. “Jozy (Altidore) was a great guy from the first day. Dempsey was great too, but I think the most important one was Jozy,” he said.

    It’s something that looks to be paying off, with the USA currently on course for a place at the tournament in Qatar, and Chander is excited by the current roster.

    “I really think the team has a lot of good players,” he says.

    “Look at John Brooks or Weston McKennie, who plays for one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

    “I think the target is to go far at the World Cup, maybe we can reach the quarter-finals.

    “With this team, a lot of things are possible.”
