Review which USA stars performed well ahead of their World Cup qualifiers.

Hannover captain Steve Cherundolo has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Coach Mirko Slomka said Thursday the American defender, who turns 34 on Feb. 19, had the operation a day earlier. Slomka did not give a projection for the right back's return.

Cherundolo has played 380 matches for Hannover, including 280 in the Bundesliga. He has 15 appearances this season but none since leaving a German Cup match against Borussia Dortmund on Dec. 19 in the 66th minute.

Cherundolo missed the United States' 2-1 loss at Honduras in World Cup qualifier on Wednesday and was replaced in the starting lineup by Nuremberg's Timmy Chandler.
