American defender Timmy Chandler scored the opening goal for Eintracht Frankfurt in a 3-0 win over fourth-tier Erndtebrueck on Saturday in the first round of the German Cup.

Chandler scored in the 35th minute off a pass from Sebastien Haller.

The 27-year-old right back was selected for the U.S. roster for World Cup qualifiers in June, and then withdrew citing a hamstring injury.
