Tim Chandler made his debut at Nurnberg
JAMIE HILL - Tuesday, January 25, 2011

* Adrián Ruelas stayed hot in his return to Santos Laguna U20 by scoring a hattrick in a wild 5-5 draw with Pachuca U20. He's now scored five goals in two games.

* Timothy Chandler made his first team debut with FC Nürnberg, coming on as a substitute against Offenbach in the DFB Pokal in a midweek match. He then made another appearance off the bench over the weekend in the Bundesliga.

* Bobby Wood is still waiting for his first senior team appearance with 1860 Munich, but he did make the bench for the first time on Friday.

* Víctor Garza made his first start for Tigres U20, which is the highest level below the senior team in Mexico.

* The German Regionalliga starts back up next week, meaning Bundesliga reserve teams will be back in action. German U-19 squads, however, will remain idle until the second week of February.
