American defender Steve Cherundolo has set a Hannover record for Bundesliga appearances.

The 34-year-old from San Diego, a member of the last three U.S. World Cup teams, appeared in his 299th Bundesliga game in a 3-1 loss at Bayer Leverkusen, one more than the mark Juergen Bandura set from 1964-74.

Cherundolo joined Hannover in 1999, when it was in the second division, and helped it earn promotion to the Bundesliga for the 2002-03 season.
