Nuremberg's Chandley may yet choose Germany over USA

FC Nuremberg full-back Timmy Chandler could still choose to represent his native Germany according to former USA international Tony Sanneh.

The 21-year old German-born American has represented his father's country of birth on four occasions but the man who helped get him a move to Nuremberg feels he may still decide to ditch the US for Die Mannschaft.

"Rumor is chandler gonna play for germany. Lowe visits nberg today," Sanneh posted on his Twitter account.

The 'Lowe' reference is of course for German national team coach Joachim Loew who is set to call on Chandler at Nuremberg.

However, it may come as a surprise to many as just recently, Chandler said he was happy to play for the USA.

"Some people were saying I wanted to play for Germany, but I've always wanted to play for the U.S. team," he told in the summer. "I'm with the 'A' team for the USA, and I want to keep playing. No question about it.Yanks Abroad: "I will absolutely not play for Germany. There is no way that will happen."
