American Exports: Chandler sees defeat in return to action

AMSTERDAM — Timothy Chandler returned to action for FC Nürnberg on Friday night, but it was in a losing cause as the home side fell 2-0 to defending Bundesliga champs Borussia Dortmund.

Back from a hamstring injury on a night of bitter cold, the US international came on to work right midfield with his team down one at the hour mark.

A late goal from Paraguay ace Lucas Barrios put the game away, leaving Nürnberg just three points above the danger zone before the rest of the league completes round 20 this weekend.
