November 7, 2008

American Steve Cherundolo is starting at right back for Hannover 96 right now against 1FC Koeln in Bundesliga action tonight in Germany. Follow the match here. In German.

Update: Christoph Daum’s 1FC Koeln came out on top 2-1 over Hannover. With Hannover leading 1-0 in the first half, Cherundolo nearly set up a score in the 36th minute when his cross found Jiri Stanjer who poked the ball wide. A Koeln corner kick was nodded hom by Youssef Mohamed to tie the score at 1-1.

In the 50th minute, another fine Cherundolo cross tipped away by Koeln keeper Mondragon to set up a corner kick. Hannover then had several good scoring chances parried away by Mondragon. Koeln went on top for good in 71st minute on Mike Hanke’s fluke deflection of a Wilfried Sanou shot from just outside the area.

Cherundolo Reports In At Hannover Training Camp

July 22, 2008

US and Hannover 96 defender Steve Cherundolo has now reported into his club’s training camp after being given a bit more time to rest after three tough international matches for the USA. During the break, he also changed agents, from his longtime representaive Dr. Michael Becker to the Hannover based Harun Arslan. Arslan also represents other players for Hannover plus German national team coach Joachim Löw.

As you can see in the photo here, assistant coach Ingo Geissler put Cherundolo to the test early in a drill to maintain balance on a training ball while heading the ball back repeatedly. Who needs the 10 minute abs video when you can do this drill?
