Chandler’s inclusion in the initial U.S. roster was somewhat of a surprise after a series of injuries and a perceived lack of commitment to the national team over the past two years.

OUTLOOK: Brought in for his experience in the German Bundesliga, his athleticism and defensive abilities, Chandler may play on either side. Much like Geoff Cameron, he is a capable player when the U.S. is out of possession, and he will have to be careful not to overextend himself.
