Cherundolo and Hannover Down Hertha 3-1

August 4, 2008

After a mistake-ridden 4-2 preseason loss to RCD Mallorca last week, Hannover 96 redeemed itself last night with a 3-1 win over fellow Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin. As expected, American Steve Cherundolo went the distance at right back while newcomer Sal Zizzo was not selected for the team.

Among the good news for Hannover was to see newcomer (and former Bayern Munich player) Jan Schlaudraff score goals in the 19th and 68th minutes. Cherundolo covered well in the back and managed to contribute on offense in the 44th minute sending a perfect through-ball to find Schlaudraff, who then tapped it to Mike Hanke, who easily stroked it into the Hertha goal to make it 2-0.

While Hertha’s young American defender Bryan Arguez did not play last night, he appears to be out of the doghouse having started in a 1-0 win over Newcastle on Friday.
