Timmy Chandler is turning into the unlikely offensive threat for Eintracht Frankfurt, scoring again in the roundup of USMNT players in Europe and Mexico. Down a goal from the 78th, Chandler equalized three minutes into stoppage time for Eintracht’s 1-1 draw at Alfredo Morales’s Fortuna Dusseldorf.
“It was certainly a lucky point,” Eintracht coach Adi Hutter said. “I’m happy with how it ended but the performance was not good. Dusseldorf played well with the fresh impetus they had, and showed that they can play good football. That was also largely down to us because we didn’t manage to settle the game down. In our situation it’s important to pick up a point even when we play badly. We’ve already shown we can do much better. There are always games in the Bundesliga that don’t reflect the table, like our win last week against Leipzig.”
