Marco Fabian credits Timothy Chandler for Eintracht Frankfurt draw

Marco Fabian celebrates his equaliser against Bayern Munich.
Marco Fabian's goal helped Eintracht Frankfurt draw with Bayern Munich.

Mexico international Marco Fabian was delighted with his goal against Bayern Munich which secured Eintracht Frankfurt's draw with the German champions.

Shortly after Bayern took the 2-1 lead in the 62nd minute, Fabian converted a Timothy Chandler cross with his chest after Eintracht were reduced to 10 men following Szabolcs Huszti's second yellow card.

"That's definitely a special day for me," Fabian told reporters. "That's clear when you score the equaliser against Bayern."

The U.S. international used the gaps on the right wing after Fabian positioned himself more centrally to score 12 minutes from time.

"Timothy played a super pass," Fabian said, as he played down his role in the draw.

"The equaliser was a reward for the team's efforts we've made until the final minutes to secure the point," the attacking midfielder said. "It confirms our good work and gives us confidence for our future tasks."

Fabian was especially proud that Frankfurt picked up a point against "one of the best teams in the world."

He said: "It's 11 versus 11 on the pitch. We've worked hard for this point and even were the better team at times."

The 27-year-old joined Frankfurt from Deportivo Guadalajara in January and failed to put his name on the score sheet in his 11 league appearances last term, and only set up two goals as the team struggled in the Bundesliga.

This term, Fabian has vastly improved his overall stats, and has hit three goals and set up a further two in his five appearances so far. 

Sporting director Bruno Hubner praised Chandler for his performance.

"It's the first time he was able to play a full preseason without injuries," he said in kicker. "You can now see his potential."
