Injured Hannover defender Steve Cherundolo is training with the U.S. soccer team this week, even though he isn't on the roster for Wednesday's exhibition against the Netherlands.

Cherundolo, who started all three U.S. games at the 2006 World Cup, broke a bone in his shoulder during training Jan. 31, an injury his club said was going to sideline him for a month.

U.S. team spokesman Michael Kammarman said Monday that Cherundolo will rejoin Hannover after Tuesday's practice.

The 31-year-old from San Diego hopes to return to Hannover's lineup on Saturday at Freiburg.
