Summary

  • Frankfurt's Chandler to miss USMNT's Copa America campaign.
  • Withdrawn in 71st minute of relegation play-off second leg.
  • Beset by injury throughout 2015/16.

Eintracht Frankfurt defender Timothy Chandler has withdrawn from the USMNT's Copa America Centenario squad through injury.

The 26-year-old has been unable to shake off a pre-existing quadriceps problem sustained in the Eagles' relegation play-off win over 1. FC Nürnberg, and will now be replaced in Jürgen Klinsmann's 23-man outfit by CF Monterrey's Edgar Castillo.

The latest setback sums up an injury-hit campaign for Chandler, who made only 14 competitive appearances in a Frankfurt shirt over the entire course of 2015/16.
