Jordan Spieth moved into pole position to progress to the knock-out stages of the WGC-Dell Match Play with a convincing victory over Victor Dubuisson. Josh Lambo Jersey . Spieth sits top of group one after a 5&4 win over the Ryder Cup star, on a day where Bubba Watson and Zach Johnson continued their unbeaten starts.  The world No 1 followed his opening day win over Jamie Donaldson by easing to victory over the Frenchman, finishing in style with a birdie at the 14th. Spieth raced in to a three-hole lead inside the opening four holes, but briefly saw his advantage cut to two when he found he bogeyed the 11th after finding the water. Jordan Spieth beat Victor Dubuisson 5&4 A par at the next was enough to regain Spieths three-hole cushion, before Dubuisson ended up in the hazard on 13 and the American kicked-in for the gain at the next to leave an unassailable advantage.Victory means he goes in to his final round-robin match against long-time friend Justin Thomas guaranteed at least a play-off spot, knowing a third win would assure him a spot in the last-16.I always play two down to start because you want to play the rest of them like you need to win your shots back, Spieth told Sky Sports. When we get 2up like we did at the third it resets so were back two down again. The world No 1 will end the group in top spot if he defeats Justin Thomas Thats the way Ive always played Match Play. Weve had success with it in the junior days and now hoping for a little more success as a professional.Its nice to know an opponent (Justin Thomas) where you know whats coming. Itll probably be different being one-on-one but weve had round this year together and know each others games.Spieths Ryder Cup team-mate Jimmy Walker eased past compatriot Robert Streb 4&3, while Dustin Johnson recovered from an opening-day defeat to beat Kiradech Aphibarnrat 5&4 and make it a four-way tie in group eight. Zach Johnson was still left frustrated by a three-putt at the ninth Zach Johnsons 8&6 win over Martin Kaymer was the biggest of the day, while Watsons 2up victory over Emiliano Grillo moves him in to top spot in group four. I think Ive played really nicely, Watson told Sky Sports. Guessing of the wind made it tough,  but I didnt make too many mistakes today and hit some quality shots.All in all, a good two days which Im pretty happy with.

The CFL unveiled its 2014 schedule Wednesday and the Redblacks will play their first-ever regular-season game in Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers on July 3.BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona eased into the Champions League quarterfinals for the seventh straight year, shaking off a slump that has dropped it to third place in the La Liga standings. Lionel Messi and Dani Alves scored second-half goals in a 2-1 win over Manchester City on Wednesday night that completed a 4-1 aggregate victory. "We had some pretty big setbacks, especially in the way we were playing -- but today we got back to playing the way we know, the Barca people love," Messi said. "Even though the goal came in the second half, I dont think we were ever in danger of an upset." In addition to on-field troubles, Barcelona has been dealing with a tax fraud case involving its acquisition of Neymar last summer, and the resignation of team president Sandro Rosell. The match drew 85,957 to Camp Nou, Europes highest-capacity stadium, but about 14,000 short of a sellout. In the nights other game, Paris Saint-Germain gave up an early goal and rallied past visiting Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 for a 6-1 aggregate win. Barcelona dominated with 56 per cent possession and a 16-9 advantage in shots, and could have gone in front early. French referee Stephane Lannoy didnt award a penalty kick when Messi went over Joleon Lescotts leg in the eighth, and Neymars tap-in of Jordi Albas pass in the 18th was called off for offside in what appeared on replay to be an officiating error. Cesc Fabregas pass bobbled through the legs of defender Joleon Lescott in the 67th minute, and Messi ran onto the ball and flicked it over goalkeeper Joe Hart. Messi has eight goals in five Champions League matches this season and 67 overall in Europes top club competition, four shy of Raul Gonzalezs record. Ciity, in the knockout stage for the first time, played a man short after Pablo Zabaleta received his second yellow card in the 78th. Brandon Allen Jersey. . The card was given for protesting after Gerard Pique barged into Edin Dzeko inside the area without a penalty kick being award. City defender Martin Demichelis had been ejected in the first leg last month. "Going for a second time down to 10 men after it was a clear penalty, its not easy conditions to come and play against a strong team," City captain Vincent Kompany said. "Over the course of two games, whenever there was 11 players, there wasnt much between the two teams." Kompany scored for City in the 89th from what appeared to be an offside position. Dani Alves scored for Barcelona in the first minute of stoppage time, adding to his goal in the first leg. In Paris, Sidney Sam scored for Leverkusen in the sixth minute, but Marquinhos tied it in the 13th and Ezequiel Lavezzi got a go-ahead goal in the 53rd. PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu saved Simon Rolfes penalty kick in the 28th after Christophe Jallet tugged Eren Derdiyoks jersey as he ran into the penalty area, earning a yellow card. Leverkusens Emre Can was ejected in the 68th for his second yellow card. PSG coach Laurent Blanc, who rested several regulars, felt his team eased up after the opening leg. "Its all well and good saying to the players forget the first game, but its true that subconsciously you tell yourself youve got a bit of a cushion," Blanc said. "But there were players out there who dont play that much, and you have to show your best level. The Champions League is a level above, and I was expecting more from my team." Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys WholesaleWholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store ' ' '

TORONTO -- Dwane Casey has been carrying around a contract in his briefcase for the past few months, signed by all the Toronto Raptors and the teams staff. Andre Roberts Jersey . The contract, just two or three lines long and something that "wouldnt hold up in court," Casey said laughing, was a pledge of commitment. Its headline: "Im all in." Perhaps no one was more committed than Casey to the Raptors success this season, and on Tuesday, the 57-year-old coach was rewarded with a new three-year contract. The announcement came two days after Torontos season ended, but a couple of months after GM Masai Ujiri first approached the coach to get a new deal done. "Coach Casey was really classy because he said to me and he said to the players, Lets leave this and concentrate on the season, this is our chance to prove ourselves," Ujiri said, recounting his initial contract talks with Casey back in March. "He said, If Ive preached that to the players, then I owe it to them to continue this and well talk about (contract negotiations) after the season. I really give him credit for that." Casey led a young Raptors team to a remarkable and unexpected season that included a franchise-record 48 wins, an Atlantic Division title, and the No. 3 seed in the playoffs. Toronto pushed the vastly experienced Brooklyn Nets to seven games in the opening round of the playoffs, losing Game 7 by just a point. Casey said he drew up his "Im all in" pledge right after the February all-star break. In their next game, the Raptors recorded a big 103-93 win at Washington. "(It was about) committing to the process. Leaving their egos at the door," said Casey, who said he might have the contract framed. "Each player dedicated themselves, gave themselves to the season, and also as far as Im concerned to the future. Because this year was just a start of what we want to grow and develop with Masai as our leader and also the guys that are coming back here." Kyle Lowry was the first player to jump up and sign the pledge, said Casey. Retaining Lowry, the point guard whose teammates say was their heart and soul this season, will be one of the Raptors top priorities in the coming weeks -- the 28-year-old becomes a free agent on July 1. Lowry spoke glowingly in exit interviews a day earlier about his love for his teammates and the city, and Ujiri sounded, on Tuesday, as if the feeling was mutual. "Its very important (to re-sign Lowry) in terms of continuity," Ujiri said. "Kyle has had a phenomenal year. I thought Kyle was a huge, huge key to our season. For me, negotiating is easy if we want Kyle to be here and Kyle wants to be here. "Hes grown tremendously, to be coached and to work with," Ujiri continued. "His teammates, everybody has said that. Were proud of him. And so well go through that process, but were optimistic stuff will happen." Lowry and his teammates praised Casey in season-ending media interviews, noting the consistency of his message. For his part, Casey said he never considered testing the market. Ujiri made a commitment to the coach when the season began, and Casey said it was only fair he reciprocate. Caseys job status was uncertain when the season began. He was hired by Bryan Colangelo, and Ujiri had just replaced Colangelo as GM. "Masai could have made any decision when he first took over the job last spring." Casey said. "He was true to his word, he gave all of us a platform to go out and prove and show, even the players, what you can do. And he was true to his word. Thats all you can ask for in this business is an opportunity. "It would be so disingenuous to even go out and put your foot in the market and think that was a possibility, so I didnt even give it a second thought. My heart is here, my mind is here." The Raptors thrived after the seven-player deal last December that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings. Casey, who is almost fatherly in the way he communicates with his team, worked four new players into the roster, and from that point forward Toronto had the best mark in the Eastern Conference at 41-22. Casey and Ujiri were proud of the teams performance in the playoffs. They squared off against a Nets team that was built for success right now, whereas the Raptors are very much a work in progress. Casey was named head coach in June 2011, shortly after he helped guide the Dallas Mavericks to an NBA title. When asked which season -- the championship in Dallas, or this Raptors campaign -- was more satisfying, he said this one. "Its far more gratifying watching kids grow, watching development ... watching guys go through Game 6, when our compete level in the first half was probably one of the lowest we had all year, and then turn it around and put ourselves in a position to win the game," Casey said. Casey said the biggest mistake the team can make now is be complacent, so improvement is the focus of the off-season. He pointed out how sophomore centre Jonas Valanciunas will work with NBA legend and former Raptor Hakeem Olajuwon over the summer. The coach said, for his part, hell do what he does every off-season and examine tape of every game, looking for what they did wrong, what they could have done better. Both Casey and Ujiri spoke again about the incredible fan support in Toronto, noting that support helps when theyre trying to sell the city to free agents. Casey called it easily the best in the NBA and compared it to the 1996 NBA finals. He was with the Seattle SuperSonics that year, bowing in the final series to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. "KeyArena was rocking, loud. The Finals in 96, I thought that was loud," Casey said. "That didnt compare to the Air Canada Centre on Sunday when Deron Williams was shooting his free throws (in the dying seconds). You could just hear it vibrating. The official had to lean over to me and whisper in my ear, which I felt kinda creepy ... but you couldnt hear yourself talk. Thats a home-court advantage, its second to none in the league." Ujiri mentioned his predecessor at the end of Tuesdays 45-minute news conference at Air Canada Centre. "I think Bryan Colangelo did an unbelievable job here," he said. "He hired Dwane Casey. The starting five were picked by Bryan Colangelo as young players. I think the guy did an unbelievable job. He was a boss here, my boss and a mentor. He needs to be given some credit." Casey was named NBA Eastern Conference coach of the month in December. The Raptors finished in the Top 10 in the NBA in defensive field goal percentage (.450) and points allowed (98.0), and also posted a franchise-best 22 road wins. Devonta Freeman Jersey .

PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jose Reyes was put on the disabled list after aggravating a hamstring injury, R.A. Dickey struggled and the Toronto Blue Jays ended up with a one-sided loss to Tampa Bay. David Price took a shutout into the eighth inning and Matt Joyce drove in three runs Monday to help the Rays begin the season with a 9-2 victory over Blue Jays. Reyes was lifted after his first at-bat because of a tight left hamstring, an injury that first bothered him late in spring training. The star shortstop led off the game and was robbed of a hit on a diving catch by Rays centre fielder Desmond Jennings. "I tried to run a little bit faster between home plate and first base, and I kind of feel my hammy there," Reyes said. "So I have to slowdown and get out of the game because I dont want to get any worse." Reyes missed several games during the final week of spring training and wasnt at 100 per cent for exhibition games Friday and Saturday in Montreal. "Irritated the same spot, so thats a concern," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Several hours later the Blue Jays put him on the DL. Reyes said the hamstring was "good enough" to play in Montreal and felt better Monday. "When I tried for a little speed, something not right," Reyes said. Reyes missed 66 games last season after going on the DL April 13 with a sprained left ankle -- after just 10 into his first season with the Blue Jays. He was replaced in the field by Ryan Goins. The Blue Jays purchased the contract of infielder Jonathan Diaz from Triple-A Buffalo to take Reyes roster spot. Price (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits over 7 1-3 innings to beat R.A. Dickey in a matchup of 2012 Cy Young Award winners. The hard-throwing lefty walked one and struck out six before a crowd of 31,042 at Tropicana Field -- the Rays ninth consecutive sellout for a home opener. "Its really disappointing and frustrating," Dickeyy said. Jake Matthews Jersey. "You feel like you let a lot of people down. Against David Price, one of the best pitchers in baseball, if you dont match him inning per inning, its going to be tough to win the game. I put us in a hole early. Walked some guys early, gave up some 0-2 hits with runners in scoring position, and that was the game." Dickey dropped to 14-13 with a 4.21 ERA last season after winning 20 games and NL Cy Young honours with the Mets two years ago. The 39-year-old knuckleballer is off to another shaky start after allowing six runs, five hits and walking six over five innings against essentially the same Tampa Bay lineup he went 3-1 against in 2013. Joyce had a sacrifice fly and two-run double off Dickey (0-1), who yielded six two-out runs in five innings. Evan Longoria got the Rays going with a first-inning RBI single and Wil Myers drove in two more when he singled with the bases loaded in the second. Price limited the Blue Jays to four singles and had only allowed two runners past second base before Maicer Izturis opened the eighth with his second hit of the day. Pinch-hitter Erik Kratz followed with a first-pitch, two-run homer over the centre field wall. The 28-year-old lefty became the Rays first 20-game winner and edged Justin Verlander in AL Cy Young balloting two years ago. He got off to a slow start in 2013, but finished strong after spending more than a month on the disabled list, leading the majors in innings, complete games and fewest walks per nine innings after July 2. NOTES: The Rays havent lost a home series to the Blue Jays since April 2007. ... Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen, whos on the 15-day disabled list due to a strain in his left abdominal area and lower back, doesnt feel the injury will be a long-term problem. ...

Its a case of same again for Vancouver Whitecaps. Mats Hummels Germany Jersey . After a successful switch in formation for last weeks home win over Houston Dynamo, Caps head coach Carl Robinson is expected to keep the same lineup for their match against Colorado Rapids at BC Place (Saturday at 3:30pm pt live on CTV BC). We have seen many good qualities from Robinson in his opening months as a rookie head coach, the latest being just last week when he showed a willingness to change. The Whitecaps had played his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation in the opening three matches, but needed to find a way to get the best out of forward Kenny Miller and also Chilean midfielder Pedro Morales. So Robinson made a switch, and the diamond midfield worked well as the Whitecaps won 2-1 against the Dynamo to keep their unbeaten start to the season alive. Theres little doubt about the star of the show last week - Morales was magnificent, especially in the first half. The Designated Player was everywhere, making the most of the freedom afforded him as a central attacking midfielder, showcasing his full range of ability, highlighted by his sublime passing. A cross-field ball driven between three Houston players was the top moment for me, but his first-time cross to the head of Andy OBrien, who then set up Jordan Harvey for the first goal, was very close behind. Morales is a difference maker that the Whitecaps have been craving for some time. He excites the crowd and makes those around him more effective. His influence on games will be key to deciding how successful the Whitecaps will be this season. Another big factor will be the depth of the Caps squad. They have assembled a quality group of players that gives Robinson plenty of options and will be extremely valuable as the season progresses. It also gives him the flexibility to change both personnel and formation within games, something he has already shown he is not afraid to do. One of the positives of the 4-4-2 diamond is that Darren Mattocks and Kenny Miller are both able to play in their favoured positions up front. Miller was less effective when playing wide as one of the three attacking midfielders in a 4-2-3-1, but his experience alongside the youth of Mattocks is important for the Whitecaps and against Houston, the partnership worked well. Other positives last week included a strong performance from goalkeeper David Ousted, more excellent work from young Argentine Matias Laba in his role as a defensive midfield destroyer, and solid displays from both fullbacks Jordan Harvey and Steven Beitashour. Everything seemed to work against Houston. Now the Whitecaps look for similar success against a Colorado side that is 1-1-1 through its first three matches. They have scored five goals, but all of them have been a result of penalties, four scored by Vincente Sanchez, and one rebound after Deshorn Brown saw his spot kick initially saved. Being awarded five penalties in just three games sets a new MLS record, but finishing chances from the run of play is something the Rapids have been struggling with through the first three matches (1-1 at New York, 2-0 win home to Portland, 3-2 loss home to Kansas City). Colorado are expected to play a 4-2-3-1 formation, but Pablo Mastroenis team will be missing some key pieces in Vancouver. Former Toronto FC defender Marvell Wynne is suspended after a sending off in the loss at home to Sporting Kansas City a week ago, regular left back Chris Klute is injured, and there is also a question mark about whether veteran players such as Sanchez and Edson Buddle will play on the BC Place turf. Colorado finished three points ahead of Vancouver last season, beating the Caps to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, although the Rapids exited at the first hurdle, losing their Knockout Round match against Seattle, 2-0. The Rapids have kept many of the same players who got them to the postseason. Spanish defensive midfielder Jose Mari is one of the new names likely to play in Vancouver as he returns from a one-match suspension picked up in just his second game in MLS as the Rapids beat Portland 2-0 at home a fortnight ago. Thomas Piermayr could make his MLS debut in defence after signing with the Rapids this week following a trial spell with the club. While most of the players are the same, there is, of course, a new coach. Mastroeni had a long and successful MLS career as a player and is now embarking on a new challenge. With two rookie coaches on the sidelines at BC Place, it will be an interesting tactical battle. The Whitecaps have equaled their best start to a season since joining Major League Soccer with eight points from their opening four matches, a win against Colorado would set a new high standard, and also lay a strong foundation ahead of back-to-back matches against LA Galaxy.Blank Germany Jersey .

Defeat for South Korea means it must now beat already-qualified Belgium to stand a chance of progressing to the knockout stages. ST. LOUIS -- Home opener hoopla was no distraction at all for Michael Wacha. Neither was the 49-degree chill for the first pitch. The 22-year-old rookie was definitely excited about the occasion and the opportunity. Just like last fall when he was the breakout pitching star of the post-season, he fed off the atmosphere. "Huge crowd out there, a lot of energy," Wacha said after the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Monday. "Its a lot of fun pitching in front of your home crowd, 40,000-plus fans. "I dont know who wouldnt thrive off those kind of situations." Wacha outdid Tony Cingrani in a rematch of young power arms, and the Cardinals got a three-run double from Yadier Molina in the first inning. "I didnt have my fastball, so what are you going to do? I just tried to battle," Cingrani said. "One bad pitch and it cleared the bases." A standing-room crowd of 47,492, the largest at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, braved daylong rain to greet the National League champions and take a look at the new Ballpark Village. Hundreds milled about the attached complex, which features five sports bars and rooftop seating. The Cardinals bunched three hits and a walk over the first five hitters to take the early lead against Cingrani (0-1), who allowed two hits in seven scoreless innings against the Cardinals six days earlier in Cincinnati. The Cards went 1 for 18 before adding RBIs from Matt Holliday and Allen Craig off Trevor Bell in a two-run seventh. St. Louis ended a three-game losing streak on opening day, including a blowout loss to the Reds last year. Wacha (1-0) hadnt allowed a run in 21 career innings against the Reds before back-to-back doubles by Brayan Pena and pinch-hitter Roger Bernadina in the fifth cut the Cardinals lead to 3-1. The NL championship series MVP benefited from two double-play balls in six stingy innings and has permitted one run in 13 2-3 innings his first two starts. Wacha threw 82 pitches before getting lifted for a pinch hitter with the Cardinals up by two runs and two on in the sixth. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny wanted to take a shot at putting the Reds away, but thought the right-hander had plenty left. "That was more of a situation of whats best for the day, whats best for that particular game," Matheny said. Cingrani needed 31 pitches to get through the first and lasted four innnings, striking out five but walking four. Mats Hummels Jersey. Matheny said before the game that his hitters had been a "click off" with timing against the 24-year-old lefty last week and should benefit from another chance so soon. Pena said he wasnt trying to make excuses but thought Cingrani was bothered by the elements. "The baseball was slippery. He couldnt grab his breaking ball the way he wanted," Pena said. Peter Bourjos moved up to second in the order and got his first two hits of the season after an 0-for-13 start. Craig got his third hit and third RBI of the season after entering 2 for 22. Seeing Wacha once again didnt do the Reds any good. Theyve totalled 18 runs in seven games. "Right now, almost collectively, weve struggled to do anything with guys in scoring position," Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said. "But thatll change. Its tough to sit through it." The start of the game was delayed 12 minutes after the inclement weather combined with pregame ceremonies that featured the traditional grand entrance with players, coaches and Hall of Famers touring Busch Stadium on the back of convertibles and trucks. A team of Clydesdales was kept in the stable due to concerns the field might be damaged. Billy Hamilton doubled to start the game and the Reds put the leadoff man on base in the first four innings but were undone by two double plays. Zack Cozart broke an 0-for-22 slump to start the season with a bloop RBI single, and pinch-hitter Neftali Soto had a sacrifice fly for his first career RBI in the ninth against St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal, who gave up his first runs at home since Aug. 15 against Pittsburgh. The Cardinals opened the first with singles by Matt Carpenter and Bourjos, and Holliday walked to load the bases with none out. Craig struck out before Molina cleared the bases with a drive to left-centre on a 1-2 pitch. NOTES: Lance Lynn (1-0, 5.40 ERA) opposes Homer Bailey (0-1, 8.31) in the second game of the series, another rematch from the season-opening series in Cincinnati. Lynn allowed three runs in five innings and Bailey gave up four runs in 4 1-3 innings in St. Louis 7-6 win. ... The Reds anticipate activating reliever Jonathan Broxton (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.

MOSCOW -- Defending champion Bayern Munich beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 on Wednesday, setting a new Champions League record of 10 straight victories. Drew Doughty Team Canada Jersey . Bayern, which had already qualified for the knockout stages from Group D, took the lead through Arjen Robben in the 17th minute. Mario Goetze made it 2-0 with a solo effort early in the second half. Keisuke Honda scored a penalty for CSKA in the 62nd, but Thomas Mueller converted one for the visitors just three minutes later to restore the German sides two-goal advantage. CSKA, which couldnt qualify for the knockout stages, opened strongly on a frozen pitch under a heavy snowfall at the Arena Khimki in Moscows suburbs. Kirill Nababkin met Hondas corner kick and the ball fell for Zoran Tosic. But his low shot in the box was deflected away by Dante in the sixth minute. Four minutes later, keeper Manuel Neuer blocked Pontus Wernblooms header from another Honda corner. However, Bayern gradually seized the initiative and Mueller broke down the left flank to send in a cross for Robben who gave Igor Akinfeev no chance, hitting the back of the net with a left-foot shot from seven meters on the visitors first scoring opportunity. Honda created a chance for an equalizer one minute into first-time injury time, putting Ahmed Musa through on goal, only for Neuer to smother the Nigerian strikers poke. The Japanese midfielder had two clear chances to equalize early in the second half but failed to beat Neuer in a one-on-one after latching on to Akinfeevs long kick and then missed again a minute later with the goal wide open following a cross from the right. Goetze added Bayerns second after he rounded four CSKA players and curled the ball into the far corner of the net in the 65th minute. CSKA, which 3-0 lost in Munich, finally scored but from the spot after a handball by Dante. But there was soon a spot-kick at the other end after defender Georgy Schennikov fouled Robben in the box and Mueller beat Akinfeev with a low shot into the left corner. The home side created several more chances but had no luck, with Tosic hitting the crossbar in the 78th. "We had several clear scoring opportunities in the second half," CSKA coach Leonid Slutsky said. "But it was all about capitalizing. Unfortunately we failed to convert them. Im really pleased with the way we played in the second half." Bayern coach Pep Guardiola focused more on the conditions. "It was a difficult game on a tough pitch and under a heavy snowfall," he said. Bayern had equalled Barcelonas 2002-03 record of nine wins in a row three weeks ago Bayern leads Group D with 15 points. CSKA has three points for third, six points behind second place Manchester City which has also reached the last 16 and was playing Viktoria Plzen later. Bayern will next face Manchester City on Dec. 10, while CSKA will be on the road to Plzen to play for a spot in the Europa League. Jay Bouwmeester Team Canada Jersey .

Wales lost ground in their bid to qualify for Russia 2018 when they were held to a 1-1 draw against Georgia at the Cardiff City Stadium. Wales manager Chris Coleman claims that two games in four days has taken its toll on his side as they drew 1-1 with Georgia at the Cardiff City Stadium That result saw Wales drop from top to third place in Group D, two points behind Serbia and the Republic of Ireland. Group leaders Serbia are Wales next opponents in Cardiff on November 12, and Tottenham defender Davies admits the game has taken on extra significance after they dropped two points against Georgia.Its definitely a big game now, said Davies. Its one we really have to get something out of.Its a game we really need to get ourselves together for. We have to look back at what went wrong and rectify it. Gareth Bale celebrates his goal but it was not enough to secure victory in Cardiff Wales can at least take comfort from the fact that in recent times Chris Colemans side have bounced back from disappointing results.The 2-1 defeat to England at Euro 2016 was followed by the impressive 3-0 victory over Russia which booked their place in the last 16 of the tournament.And Wales first game after the semi-final defeat to Portugal in France saw them open their World Cup campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Moldova. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6. Jay Bouwmeester World Cup Jersey. 9. No contract. Its obviously about bouncing back now, added Davies.But its still early days in the campaign and it [the Georgia result] just means we are going to have to take points off one of the so-called bigger boys in the group.We are a better side than we showed against Georgia.

Graham DeLaet was out on the practice range working on his game on Monday morning, preparing for his first U. Javi Martinez Jersey .S. Open. Its almost hard to believe that the player ranked 32nd in the world, who has earned more than $2 million this year, dazzled at last years Presidents Cup and has 16 top-10 finishes in the last three years, is just now completing the career slam - in terms of playing them, that is. Sometimes we forget that as good as he is, hes still relatively young in terms of being at the elite level. His talent exceeds his experience at this point of his career, which isnt necessarily a bad thing. Still, he does know a good course when he sees one. Having toured around the back nine at the famed No. 2 course here at Pinehurst, DeLaet quickly pronounced it to be a favourite. "It automatically went into my top 10 of all time," said the lone Canadian entrant in the American championship this year. "Its a great test, its an awesome old-style golf course and its going to be a lot of fun." Fun? The U.S. Open? Yep, this is definitely his maiden voyage in this tournament. While he hasnt been playing it, DeLaet, of course, has been an avid viewer of the American championship, and he knows that unlike most of the past, oh, 50 or 60, U.S. Opens, this year there is no long, punishing rough lining the fairways. Instead, Pinehurst has been returned to its original design, thanks to Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, with scruffy waste areas full of wiregrass bushes on the borders of the short grass. Its something that DeLaet says could prove to be a bit of a lottery for those who stray from the fairway. "This is my first U.S. Open but Ive watched in on TV for years," he said, "and its always been the deep rough and this year there is no rough at all. But the waste area or whatever you call it, sometimes you can get in there and have a pretty clear shot and get a lot of club on it and you can get in there and have a lot of bad breaks as well." DeLaet believes that hitting it into the scruffy section - officially, native areas - will give you about a 50 per cent chance of having a good lie. You might be able to play the shot like a fairway bunker or you might end up behind a tuft of grass that will mean chipping out sideways. The frustration levels could rise significantly if a player gets enough of the bad lies. DeLaet knows that too will be a big part of surviving the week, keeping his patience at an even level and trying to survive the mental test that is a big part of this event. Along with the predicted high temperatures, it will be a tough task for any player to keep their minds focused at all times. While DeLaet is working on his mental side, his physical appears to be in order. He was forced to miss the Memorial two weeks ago with a sore leg, something he now feels is on the mend. "I just kind of had a strained tendon on the outside of my right foot," he stated. "It wasnt extremely painful or anything like that but I just knew if I kept playing - and walking on uneven slopes is the worst for it. And Memorial unfortunately is up and down. I mean thats one of my favourite golf courses and I love that tournament and I have good vibes going in there. It killed me to miss that tournament but I knew for the rest of the year I had to be smart and I just didnt make it worse and over the last couple of weeks with some rest, it has gotten a lot better." While this has been a good year for the Saskatchewan native, he has been in search of more consistency on the greens. In the second round of the Players, he switched to a left-hand-low putting grip that he was practicing with on Monday, under the watchful eye of short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. Its just one more little thing he hopes will unlock the mystery that is putting. DeLaet is also hoping that he can bring his game around in a big event. While hes posted six top-10s this year, including consecutive runner-up finishes at Torrey Pines and Phoenix, he missed the cut in both the Masters and the Players. Its understandable as he adjusts to tougher set-ups and deeper fields, but this is where he wants to perform, this is where he wants to be contending. Hell get that opportunity starting at 1:36 on Thursday afternoon. Marco Friedl Jersey . -- Masahiro Tanaka knows that first appearance in a spring training game for the New York Yankees will be scrutinized. Niklas Sule Jersey.Y. -- The "for sale" sign is up at the Buffalo Bills with the hiring of financial and legal advisers who may begin talking with prospective buyers within the next month.CONCORD, N.C. -- Sprint Cup points leader Jeff Gordon cut short his practice because of back spasms and the No. 24 team has Regan Smith on standby should the four-time champion not be able to run the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night. Gordon went just 11 laps Saturday before he told his crew he couldnt continue. He left out of a side door of his hauler and was escorted out of the track to get treatment. Crew chief Alan Gustafson said the team would not run the car in the final practice session and instead will get it ready for Sundays race. "Ive had some spasms in the past, but this one, it was a little bit different," said the 42-year-old Gordon. "And so I just want to really be cautious and take care of it. It doesnt do me any good to be in the car right now." Gustafson said the plan was for Gordon to start the longest event in NASCAR. Should the pain be too much, then Smith would take over the Hendrick Motorsports car. Gustafson said Gordon felt back pain after qualifying Thursday night and had hoped things would improve before Saturdays practice sessions. But "after the first run, we talked about it and it was pretty detrimental to him physically to continue," Gustafson said. Gordon said on Twitter he planned to rest and "be ready for 600 miles 2moro." The four-time series champion is having one of the steadiest starts of his career with eight top-10 finishes in the first 11 races. Gordon moved into the points lead following a second-place finish at Texas Motor Speedwway in early April and hes stayed out front ever since. Thiago Alcantara Jersey. He cemented his place in the Sprint Cups championship Chase two weeks ago with a victory at Kansas Speedway. Gordon will start 27th and hope his back holds out for 400 laps around the 1.5-mile race track. "Luckily, we had a good 11 laps there and weve got our teammates and information that were going to be able to gather from them," Gordon said. "Its all coming together very fast right now." Gordon has had back spasms in the past and even considered retiring because of the severe pain. Regular treatment has kept the pain mostly in check and Gustafson hopes that will be the case again for Sunday. Doctors "will get him in the best condition he can and get him ready to run tomorrow," Gustafson said. This weeks race marks the 20th anniversary of Gordons first Sprint Cup victory. His crew chief then, Ray Evernham, said Gordon is much tougher than some believe and has raced through illness and pain before. "We won the Southern 500 (at Darlington) when he started throwing up halfway" through the race, said Evernham, currently working for Hendrick Motorsports. Evernham said Gordon believes his car is ready and is being smart by not hurting himself further by practicing. "Hell do everything he needs to do to get to feeling good and I know him and tomorrow night in that car, he may need some help getting out of it, but when hes in it, hes going to be at 100 per cent," Evernham said. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store ' ' '

WICHITA, Kan. Matt Stajan Jersey . -- Cleanthony Early scored 23 points, including 12 of the 21 Wichita State scored in the second half, to help the fourth-ranked Shockers stay unbeaten with a 57-45 victory over Loyola of Chicago on Tuesday night. Wichita State (22-0, 9-0 Missouri Valley Conference) saw a 22-point second-half lead trimmed to nine in the games final minutes but hung on to extend school records for winning streak and start to a season. The Shockers shot 23 per cent (6 of 26) in the second half. Freshman Milton Doyle scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half for Loyola (8-13, 3-6). The Shockers outrebounded Loyola 44-28. The Shockers tied the 1985-86 Bradley team for the third-longest winning streak by a Missouri Valley team. The top two MVC winning streaks are Cincinnati, 37 from 1961 to 1963, and Indiana State, 33 in 1978-79. The Shockers led 36-18 at halftime with the Ramblers 7 of 25 (28 per cent) from the field and 1 of 9 (11 per cent) from beyond the 3-point line. Consecutive 3-pointers from Ron Baker and Early quickly pushed Wichita States lead to 42-20 early in the second half, but the Shockers went ice cold after that, making only two of their next 18 shots. Doyle, who entered the game averaging 16 points, finally found scoring opportunities after a two-point first half. His 3-pointer pulled Loyola within 43-29 with 13:31 left, but Early quickly countered with a 3-pointer to stem the tide. Doyle scored four points in a six-point run that trimmed Wichita States lead to 48-35 with 6:03 remaining. A 3 by Devon Turk off a Wichita State turnover and Doyles slashing layup 31 seconds later brought the Ramblers within 50-40. The crowd was nervous and then restless after Doyles three-point play with 2:27 left shaved the lead to single digits, 52-43. But four free throws by Anthony and a dunk by Darius Carter sealed the victory. Freddie Hamilton Jersey .

MONTREAL -- The Canadian Football League fined two players undisclosed amounts Tuesday for making inappropriate comments about openly gay football player Michael Sam. Aaron Colvin Jersey . Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Arland Bruce was fined for a crude posting on social media urging Sam to "submit to God." Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Bryant Turner Jr. was disciplined for a reported anti-homosexual tweet that has since been deleted. "The comments made by these players are extremely disappointing and do not represent the CFLs views or the views of the vast majority of our players," CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said in a statement. "The CFL is supportive of openly gay athletes in professional sports and we commend the courage shown by Michael Sam. During the off-season, we have been working with an organization that specializes in this subject and look forward to announcing a formal partnership with them in the near future." Patrick Burke, co-founder of the You Can Play movement that hopes to eradicate anti-homosexual attitudes from sports, called Bruces posting "disappointing." Burke tweeted that his group "has been in contact with the CFL for months now and are in touch about this." It is CFL policy not to disclose the amount that players are fined. Several pro football players have come out in support of Sam since the University of Missouri defensive lineman made public that he is homosexual, but others have questioned having an openly gay player in their leagues. Bruces posting, in which he misspelled the word gay, asked Sam if he was scared to touch women and added "you gaey man up and do some MFN pushups and get on your knees and submit to God fully." The 36-year-old Bruce, a three-time CFL all-star and two-time Grey Cup champion, has played 11 seasons with Winnipeg, Toronto, Hamilton, B.C. and Montreal. The Olashe, Kan., native is going into his second season with the Alouettes. Turners tweet reportedly said: "Michael Sam locker room gonna come with complimentary robes." Turner posted an apology in a series of tweets on Tuesday that read: "I would like to apologize for my inappropriate and insensitive tweet. My tweets are solely from me, and I accept full responsibility for my actions. I am sincerely sorry for any shame that I may have caused the great city of Winnipeg, the CFL or the wonderful Blue Bomber organization." Turner has played three seasons with the Bombers. He had seven sacks in 14 games in 2013. The Alouettes released a statement saying they "unequivocally denounce the regrettable comments made by Arland Bruce III. The statements and feelings expressed by Bruce III are disappointing and do not reflect the opinions and values of the Montreal Alouettes Football Club." In the same statement, Alouettes general manager and head coach Jim Popp said: "Our organization supports all types of diversity. Every individual is unique and free to make his or her own choices. We evaluate players, coaches and support staff based on their skill set and not by gender, colour, religion or sexual orientation. The Montreal Alouettes have a simple criteria to determine who can be a member of our organization. We seek individuals who will make a positive contribution to our team goals and to the Montreal community." Popp later said that no decision has yet been made on whether Bruce will remain with the team. He did not rule out releasing the veteran. "As an organization, well discuss the matter thoroughly and decide what to do next," said Popp. The Bombers statement said team president Wade Miller and general manager Kyle Walters have spoken to Turner. "It is unfortunate that Bryant made this comment through social media," it said. "Any athlete with the ability and determination has the right to succeed in their sport." The 24-year-old Sam is expected to be picked in the early rounds of the NFL draft after a season in which he was a first-team all-American and was named MVP of his team. Dawuane Smoot Jersey . Although the deal cannot be made official until the free agent moratorium period is lifted on July 10, Patterson has agreed to a three-year, $18 million extension to remain in Toronto, sources confirm to TSN. Marcedes Lewis Jersey . The 57-year-old Tietjens has coached New Zealand to nine IRB World Sevens titles and to four Commonwealth Games gold medals as its only coach in the professional era. New Zealand Rugby Union chief executive Steve Tew said the re-signing was made with a focus on 2016 when sevens will be in the Olympics.Hockey Canada wrapped up its summer development camp on Saturday with a 5-1 loss against the United States in Lake Placid, New York. Over the previous eight days, 38 Canadian players got a chance to meet with head coach Brent Sutter and his staff as well as the new management team and take part in three exhibition games as well as an intra-squad scrimmage and four full practices. The following is a recap of the top storylines:  1. Sutter sets the tone Shortly after arriving at the camp Mathew Dumba, who plays for Sutter in Red Deer, offered up a simple piece of advice for his campmates. "Get a haircut and shave," the Minnesota Wilds first round pick in 2012 (seventh overall) said. "I just shaved this morning. I kind of had a mustache and goatee going and I knew Brent wasnt going to let that fly." And, sure enough, a couple of players got their ears lowered shortly after arriving at the camp in order to comply with their coachs desired look. So why does something like hygiene matter when it comes to high-level hockey? "To people on the outside it may seen like such a meaningless thing, but inside of a group its big," explained Sutter. "It might be a bunch of little things, but they create a big thing. "Discipline isnt just important on the ice, its important off the ice. It starts off the ice. And its not just about penalties, its about our overall game and you have to create that culture off the ice. People can say whatever they want, whether its old school or whatever, but I dont believe its old school. I believe its about principles and values.  "There are principles and values that must be implemented. Were not talking about a situation here where this is a group of players well have for a few years. Were talking about a situation where you have to quickly bond into a team. There has to be an identity and culture on your team forming very quickly and theres certain things that have to be in place before you ever step on the ice and thats something I stand by." That message was heard loud and clear by the players. "Hes a little intimidating, Im not going to lie, especially when he addressed us [the first night of the camp]," said Ottawa Senators first-round pick Curtis Lazar. "We left the meeting a little wide-eyed." One other small thing Sutter did to try and build team unity was instruct the equipment staff to exclude last names on the game jerseys. Instead each jersey nameplate simply had, CANADA. That stood out at the event as the Americans and Finns had last names on their jerseys while the Swedes had the name of a sponsor. "Were Canadas team," Sutter said when asked about the jerseys. "Thats what we are and were all one." 2. Max Domi channels his inner Tie Late in the third period of Canadas 7-3 win over Sweden on Thursday, Tobias Tornkvist and 16-year-old Connor McDavid got tangled up behind the play. The Swede ended up on top of Canadas youngest player, which led to hollering from the Canadian bench for someone else on the ice to get involved. Max Domi heard the shouts and quickly skated to the aid of his teammate. He had to be separated from Tornkvist by the linesmen and ended up with a double-minor and a 10-minute misconduct. "He did the right thing for a teammate," said Sutter. "Thats what youre supposed to do in this game: stick together as a team. At that point in game, youre up four, you dont mind a player doing that for you." "Were all expected to stand up for each other," said Domi, Phoenixs first round pick (12th overall) last June, "and when one guy gets in trouble there are four guys right behind him. Were a team and we stick up for each other." As for McDavid? He had a huge grin on his face when asked about Domis assistance. "It was awesome," he said. 3. Lake Placid sure beats intra-squad games  Hockey Canadas decision to sign-up for the American-organized Lake Placid event instead of holding its own entirely separate camp was a change for the organization. Yes, last year the Canadian junior hopefuls played a four-game series against Russia in the summer with two games in Yaroslavl and two games in Halifax, but that was a special event to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Summit Series. Usually Canada has a camp featuring intra-squad games. Such games dont allow for team-bonding events like what happened with Domi and McDavid. Due to having to play games against other teams, Hockey Canada did not invite as many players to the camp this time around allowing the management team to evaluate only what Sutter called "the cream of the crop." Thirty-seven players took part in the first practice and the controlled scrimmage in Montreal, but the four returning players – Morgan Rielly, Griffin Reinhart, Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin – did not travel south. The quartet are basically assured spots on the team in December if they are not in the NHL and as a result its not as important that they be evaluated. The other 33 players all took part in at least one game in Lake Placid. Capitals prospect Tom Wilson, who made his NHL debut in the playoffs last spring, as well as Flyers hopeful Scott Laughton and Habs prospect Charles Hudon all took part in only one game. That is likely a sign the management team is quite content with what they already know about them. The games against Finland, Sweden and the host Americans allowed the Canadian players to measure themselves against different opposition and get a taste of what to expect from those countries in Malmo, Sweden this winter. Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson says its likely a similar format will be adopted for future camps and its possible Canada may look to host a summer exhibition series in the future. 4. McDavid had a good camp even if he doesnt think so "It didnt go well today obviously," McDavid said following Saturdays loss to the United States. "Still a lot of work to be done to make this team." After his first game of the camp against Sweden on Thursday, McDavid gave himself a C+. Against the U.S.? "A lot worse. I was awful," he said with his eyes staring downward.  The Erie Otters wunderkind, the early favourite to go first overall in the 2015 NHL draft, was steamrolled by New Jersey Devils prospect Steven Santini late in the third period. It was the type of hit McDavid is usually able to avoid thanks to his incredible hockey sense and agility. When asked what hell remember most about the camp McDavid references that body blow. "Just getting hit like that at the end of the game. You know, he got me good and its just going to be a reminder that at this level there are no easy plays out there and you just got to battle through. "Growing up you always watch the world juniors and obviously the pace is fast and its hard hitting and its good to get experience playing at this level." Perhaps we shouldnt be surprised. Talents like McDavid dont achieve the success they do without setting sometimes impossibly high standards. And we cant forget that McDavid, for all the hype, is attempting to do something extremely difficult: crack Canadas world junior roster as a 16-year-old. It has only been done by five players: Wayne Gretzky (1978), Eric Lindros (1989), Jason Spezza (2000), Jay Bouwmeester (2000) and Sidney Crosby (2004). Despite his sour state after Saturdays game the truth is McDavid had a respectable camp. He was effective against the Swedes, scoring once and creating plenty of chances. He also shone in the controlled scrimmage held in Montreal before the team headed south. He has put himself firmly in the mix for a roster spot. 5. Discipline remains a concern It seems to be a constant theme: how will Canadas rough-and-tumble players deal with the tighter officiating that usually comes in international play? Last year, that storyline dominated much of the tournament starting even before Canada landed in Ufa, Russia. Boone Jenner was handed a three-game ban for a hit (called a charging major) on Swedens Jesper Pettersson during the final pre-tournament game. Russian captain Nail Yakupov added fuel to the fire by suggesting Team Canada was "dirty." Then at the tournament JC Lipon was handed a suspension for a high hit and Anthony Camara was ejected from a game for what was deemed an illegal hit. Reinhart was slapped with a four-game suspension for what was ruled a deliberate high stick to the head of American Vince Trocheck in the semi-finals. Reinhart has argued tthe high-stick was accidental although his appeal was denied. Jaelen Strong Jersey. If the New York Islanders prospect is on the team this year then he will need to sit out the first three games. So how did the boys in red and white fare in Lake Placid? Well, 17 Canadian players combined to take 26 penalties and two players (Domi and Oilers first-round pick Darnell Nurse) were given misconducts. Sutter did not seem impressed by the officiating at the event although he refused to come out and say anything specific. The coach did admit that some of the penalties during Saturdays game were the result of a loss of focus. Nurse certainly seemed to lose focus during Thursdays game against Sweden. In the second period he was called for his second penalty of the game and then received an extra 10-minute misconduct for voicing his displeasure with the officials. "I may have just lost it a bit tonight," Nurse admitted after the game. "I got to get my stick under control, but thats what happens when you get fired up. But its good to get it out of way now. I dont think I have more of those left in me." What did Nurse actually say to the officials?  "Nothing very nice ... Probably deserved [the misconduct]." 6. Bitter-sweet camp for MacKinnon The first overall pick in Junes draft is off to Los Angeles this week to prep for the season alongside trainer Andy OBrien. It seems likely that the Avalanches newest weapon will be in the NHL this year and not available to the Canadian team. If that is indeed the case, MacKinnon admits the lack of a world junior medal on his resume will be a source of regret.  "It will be. I think it wouldnt have been as bad if we didnt come fourth last year. Coming here gets you excited to play in the world juniors again especially with Brent [Sutter]. Hes an emotional guy, inspirational guy and him talking about the world juniors gets me fired up. "I could easily be back here. Anything can happen, but if I dont it will definitely be tough not medalling." But being in the NHL is a pretty good consolation prize. MacKinnon has a simple plan for his final few weeks of preparation before his first professional camp. "For me, I want to keep my speed as much as I can," he said. "I dont want to get too big for my own body. My game is quickness and speed. I want to build some strength and maybe put on some weight." 7. Charles Hudon aching for another chance On the day the camp opened Hudon tweeted, "The moment Ive been waiting for eight months has finally arrived." Hudon, picked by Montreal in the fifth round (122nd overall) in 2012, thought he had realized his goal of making the world junior team last year. He was named to the squad and travelled overseas to Finland for the pre-tournament games. But then a back injury (disk-related) forced him off the team. "Its always on my mind," Hudon said. "I always wear the Team Canada hat just to know that I need to be coming back for next year for next world juniors. Thats my goal, thats my objective. "I just want to try and take care of my back. I feel really good. Im not 100 per cent, but Im close to that." 8. Goaltending concerns overblown Thats the assessment of both management team member Sean Burke and new goalie consultant Fred Brathwaite, who has replaced Ron Tugnutt. "I dont see there being any issue with our goaltending," said Burke, who has represented Canada at the World Juniors and Olympics. "Any of the kids who are here are capable of winning that tournament." Fresh off a Memorial Cup championship, Halifaxs Zach Fucale, a Habs prospect and the top goalie selected at Junes draft (36th overall), seems to have the pole position in the race to be Canadas starter on Boxing Day and did nothing to change that perception in stopping 38 of 41 shots in a win over Sweden. Fucales top challenger is Jake Paterson, who is a year older and was the third goalie on last years team although the Saginaw Spirit keeper did not get into a game. The same thing happened at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in 2011 as Paterson made Team Ontario, but did not play. He calls that "frustrating" and said it will motivate him to finally take the next step this time around. Paterson wasnt thrilled with his performance against the United States on Saturday as he allowed five goals on 25 shots. But three of the goals came with Canada shorthanded with two coming with Canada down two men. And, in general, Team Canada was pretty lacklustre in front of Paterson.     Tri-Citys Eric Comrie was the third goalie at the camp and is a bit of a wild card, because he missed the second half of last season with a hip injury. But after allowing a goal on the first shot he faced against Finland on Wednesday the brother of former NHLer Mike Comrie settled down and impressed the Canadian staff by stopping 37 of 40 shots overall in the victory. Goaltending has been a hot-button topic – it always seems to be – around the team. A Canadian goalie hasnt led the world junior tournament in save percentage since Steve Mason in 2008. And Canada has never won a tournament hosted in Europe without having the tournaments top netminder. Those storylines will be front and centre this winter. With that in mind Brathwaite has a simple piece of advice for his charges. "Just try and stay away from the media," said Brathwaite. "Weve been talking a lot about it, but I think the pressures actually coming from the media. The goaltendings been fine." 9. Third times the charm for Dumba? Twice Dumba has come to the world junior selection camp with high hopes and twice he has left disappointed. Now, in his final kick at the can, he has an ally behind the bench in Sutter. Last year, defenceman Ryan Murphy, who had also been cut twice, finally got over the hump thanks in part to a vote of confidence from Steve Spott, his head coach in Kitchener and the man who led the junior team into the 2013 event. Now history may be repeating. "I do know the systems," said Dumba. "I know what Brents looking for, what he likes. For the four years Ive been in junior hockey hes been the owner of the Red Deer Rebels and stepping in this year as our head coach I learned a lot from him." Sutter made an impression on Dumba as soon as he took over behind the bench last November replacing Jesse Wallin. "When he first took over we had a meeting about how hes going to be really hard on me, hes going to be hard on me and really hold me accountable for everything that I do and if I did anything well he wouldnt sugarcoat it or anything." "Sometimes players at top-end levels get away with some things that they probably should not, and it does not help their development," said Sutter. "I told him right from the get-go, This is how I coach, you will be treated like everyone else in the room and when things are going to be told to you, it is going to be done." Sutter helped Dumba become a better two-way player. "I learned a lot from him on the defensive side of the game and he held me accountable all the time and that was awesome for me," Dumba said. "I just need that reliability on the ice so Im not a liability and he can trust me in all areas of the game." 10. Hunter Shinkaruk is making a list Shinkaruk doesnt have to look far for inspiration. The Medicine Hat Tigers forward was cut at last years Canadian selection camp and is eager to erase that bitter memory. "It will always be used as motivation, definitely at this camp, but also down the road when I play those players, who did make that team and if I play against the coaches, who cut me. Its something that will always motivate me," he said. "It was tough. I felt like I had a good camp [last December]. I felt like I did everything I could have to make that team. "At the end of the day its something that made me stronger mentally and allowed me to mature as a kid." The Vancouver Canucks prospect actually inked his first professional contract during the camp. And while hes thrilled that Vancouver scooped him up at the No. 24 pick he isnt about to forget that his hometown team, the Calgary Flames, passed on him at No. 22 by picking campmate Emile Poirier instead. "Draft day, Im not going to lie, it was a little nerve-wracking," Shinkaruk said. "My hometown team passed on me and its going to be something that, when I play the Flames down the road, that Ill definitely have in mind." NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

RICHMOND, Va. Andy Greene Jersey . - Nationwide will be the primary sponsor for Dale Earnhardt Jr. starting next season under an expanded agreement with Hendrick Motorsports. Nationwide had already signed on for 12 races for NASCARs most popular driver, but picked up an additional nine races for next season to push its total to 21. The deal runs through the 2017 season and includes the Daytona 500. "Were thrilled to be deepening our partnership with the Hendrick Motorsports team," said Matt Jauchius, chief marketing officer at Nationwide. Nationwide is making its debut on Earnhardts car this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. Earnhardt goes into Saturday nights race ranked second in the Sprint Cup standings with three wins this season, and the organization qualified all four of its cars for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship last weekend with Kasey Kahnes win at Atlanta. "That Nationwide has already elected to grow the sponsorship sends a clear message about the opportunities they see and how well our teams are working together," team owner Rick Hendrick said. "Its quickly become a strong relationship, and were committed to building on that foundation and delivering results in every facet of the program." Hendrick Motorsports said Friday it is in discussions with the National Guard regarding its sponsorship of the No. 88 Chevrolet. The guard said last month it was ending its sponsorship of motorsports programs, but Hendrick says its contract runs through the 2015 season. Jamie Langenbrunner Jersey .

The last 48 hours have been a perfect example of how Jason Spezza is the most polarizing figure on the Senators roster. Connor Hellebuyck Jersey . On Monday night, many fans in this city placed the blame squarely on the captain for his role in the James Neal overtime winner against the Pittsburgh Penguins.   But the very next night, Spezza answered his critics with a clutch three-point performance that included a pair of beautiful assists in a stunning 5-4 shootout victory over the St. Louis Blues. On both nights, our radio station was flooded with calls and e-mails from fans wanting to talk about Spezza. The first night we heard from his detractors and, on the second, we heard from his defenders. Its a predictable pattern with the fans here in Ottawa. When Spezza plays poorly, his critics say you cannot win with him. When he generates offence, the negative comments disappear into the cold night air. There is no arguing that Spezza has had a rough season in 2013-14. In many ways, Spezza is having a similar season to Eric Staal in Carolina. Staal has 14 goals and 44 points and was left off Team Canadas roster because of his slow start. Spezza has 15 goals and 42 points – numbers that look awfully similar to Staals. The Sens captain sits 24th in scoring amongst centremen in the NHL, a ranking that suggests that he is still a legitimate number-one centre in a 30-team league. Spezza is also only one point behind Kyle Turris on the team scoring list without the luxury of playing with the same quality of linemates so far this season. And while everyone can agree that Turris is trending upwards, most believe that the opposite is true for Spezza. Those who are into analytics have been trumpeting Spezzas poor Corsi numbers all season long as tangible proof of his declining skills. After Monday nights loss, where Spezza failed to clear the puck out of his own zone, many fans who arent into advanced stats said they had reached their breaking point with the captain. We were bombarded with "Trade Spezza" e-mails and calls and there seemed like a growing distaste for his style of play in Ottawa. One of the most common complaints I heard from fans is that Spezza needs to earn his $7 million salary. But what fans need to remember about Spezza is that his contract is set up very favorably for next season. While he carries a cap hit of $7 million, he will actually only get paid $4 million in actual money for the 2014-15 campaign.  (Spezza is being paid $5 million this season as his front-loaded contract starts to decline). And for a team like Ottawa that is desperate to reach the salary cap floor, this contract is an absolute dream. For next season, the Sens are getting $3 million of salary cap space eaten up for nothing. If the Sens were a spend-to-the-cap team, this deal would be an issue for them, but the exact opposite is true and that is why I would expect the Senators to hang onto their captain. He gives them $7 million of salary cap space for the price of $4 million. And now ask yourself this important question: Would you pay Jason Spezza $4 million to play next season? Of course you would. In a world where the oft-injured Martin Havlat will be making $6 million next season and Mike Ribeiro will be making $5.5 million, Spezza is absolutely a bargain at $4 million in real dollars. He wont even rank among the top 50 forwards in salary next season. As his salary is lowered, perhaps the expectations on Spezza could follow suit. He is 30 years old and no longer surrounded by snipers like Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson. But at $4 million dollars next season, Jason Spezza will be worth every penny that he is paid. Tucker Poolman Jersey . Gauteng High Court Judge Dunstan Mlambo ruled Tuesday that South African media houses will be allowed to install three remote controlled cameras in court for the Olympic athletes trial starting next week to capture images that likely will be seen by millions around the world. Brandon Tanev Jersey . Fielder has been out with a herniated disk in his neck, and surgery was recommended after a follow-up exam and another scan Thursday with Dr. CHESTER, Pa. -- Toronto FC couldnt replicate last weeks dominating four-goal performance. Instead, the team conceded a stoppage time goal in Saturday nights 1-0 loss to playoff hopefuls Philadelphia Union. It was a familiar story for Ryan Nelsens team, which defended well and created scoring chances throughout the full 90 minutes. But the late goal, scored on a Kleberson free kick, sent Toronto home empty handed, even with the Reds playing with a man advantage for the final 15 minutes of the game. "The chances that we got were obviously very key ones," Nelsen said. "We just didnt take them, and thats football. Thats the thing about this game, generally it comes back to haunt you." Toronto was awarded the advantage after Union winger Fabinho was shown a straight red card in the 77th minute. The Brazilian was judged to have stomped on the back of Alvaro Rey after the pair became tangled up going for a ball near the far touchline. Just three minutes later, second-half substitute Robert Earnshaw had Torontos best scoring chance of the evening. Firing a freekick from 22 yards, the Welshmans strike hit the underside of the crossbar and ricocheted down, but did not cross the goal line. Philadelphia was able to clear the box with frantic defending. "I caught it so sweet," Earnshaw said. "If I caught it right, and if I hit the ball right, I thought it was going in. I got great contact on it. As soon as I saw it go over the wall, I was away. I was actually going to celebrate because I thought it was going to dip under the bar. Unfortunately it just hit the underside of the bar and came out instead of going in." Toronto had another chance at a game-winning goal in the 91st minute, whenn a Union corner kick turned into a counterattack opportunity. Shawn Matthias Jersey. Earnshaw and Rey sprung a two-on-one, but Reys shot was smothered by Zac MacMath after the Spaniard elected to cut inside and try an effort from 18 yards. "We actually capitalized on the possession and we got some good second balls and created some situations in our favour and went through on goal," Earnshaw said. "We should have done better, really. There were a couple of times where our final pass didnt really make the chance clean through, but weve got to capitalize on that. "We had, I thought, three times where we had the opportunity to really go through on goal and get the tap-in. We didnt capitalize on that." Philadelphia found the games only goal with just seconds left to play. A foul from Doneil Henry set up the Union from just 25 yards out and the sparingly-used Kleberson curled the resulting free kick past goalkeeper Joe Bendik. "It was a lovely free kick," said Nelsen. "Set pieces, and pieces of skill like that happen in life. Our free kick hits the underside of the bar and hits the line and goes out. It could have easily gone in." Toronto falls to 5-16-11 on the season, including a 2-11-3 road record. With two games left to play, Nelsens team is locked into a 9th place Eastern Conference finish and can only focus on next season. "Weve got to see a lot more character, especially if theres games like this," said midfielder Jonathan Osorio. "The next game in Chicago will be the same thing, same atmosphere. Theyre playing for a playoff spot too. "We have to show a little bit more character in our team and I think were just building to next year." NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '

BRISBANE, Australia - China coach Alain Perrin was thinking about uncorking some champagne as his players celebrated with raucous singing and high-fives after clinching a spot in the Asian Cup quarterfinals. Myles Jack Jersey .Wu Xi and Sun Ke scored second-half goals to propel China to a 2-1 comeback win over 2011 semifinalist Uzbekistan on Wednesday, ensuring top spot in Group B and a Jan. 22 quarterfinal match against either Australia or South Korea.Theres still the matter of a remaining group match against winless North Korea on Sunday in Canberra, but with wins over Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan already, Perrin decided it was OK to celebrate Chinas first run to the knockout stage since it hosted the continental tournament in 2004.Perrin said hed open two bottles of good champagne back at the team hotel, adding that the coaching and staff had celebrated the opening win and now hed invite the players.We played a very beautiful match, the Frenchman said. Now we can move to the knockout stage in the first ranking of the group. Its fantastic.Australia and South Korea, each with six points from two wins, will meet on Saturday to determine top spot in Group A. Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia will play in Melbourne on Sunday to decide which team goes through from Group B with China. Both teams have three points from wins over North Korea.The North Koreans are already out of contention following the 4-1 loss to the Saudis in Melbourne, where a small but vocal group chanted the name of Kim Jong Un during the match.Ryang Yong Gi gave North Korea the lead in the 11th minute when he swooped on a failed clearance from Saudi goalkeeper Waleed Abdullah — his countrys first goal in the Asian Cup since 1992 — but Naif Hazazi equalized before halftime and Mohammed Al Sahlawi scored twice in as many minutes to make it 3-1 in the 54th. Nawaf Al Abid added the fourth goal after Ri Yong Jik was sent off in the 77th for an intentional handball.Im happy we won the game and also we had a good performance, Saudi Arabia coach Cosmin Olaroiu said. Now we have to forget it quickly to prepare for the game against Uzbekistan.After weathering Chinas early attacking raids, Uzbekistan seized its first real opportunity when Odil Ahmedovs strike from 25 yards deflected off Wu and looped inside the far past. Uzbekistan appeared to be in control until holes opened up in the defence after halftime.Wu made amends when he equalized 10 minutes into the second half and Sun, who went on in the 66th, made an angled run from the left two minutes later and struck from the edge of the area.Uzbekistan coach Mirdjalal Kasimov said his squad needed to regroup quickly ahead of the last group match, and suggested changes were possible after he started with the same 11 for consecutive matches.Iran and United Arab Emirates have three points each and will be aiming to qualify from Group C with wins on Thursday. Iran takes on Gulf Cup champion Qatar in Sydney and the UAE plays Bahrain in Canberra. Jermey Parnell Jersey . The Oilers have been shut out in three straight home games and are in last place in the Western Conference with a 4-14-2 record. "Things have obviously not gone as well as I would have thought probable. Carson Tinker Jersey . The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.MINNEAPOLIS -- An unexpectedly strong performance in the middle gave the Minnesota Timberwolves a big lift Sunday night. Kevin Love had his usual solid performance with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 104-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings. But it was the other double-double that was unexpected. In his first career start, rookie Gorgui Dieng had his first career double-double with season highs in points (12) and rebounds (11) for Minnesota. He also had five blocks. "Were a man short right now and Gorgui, he just came in and did what we needed him to do and thats just rebound and alter shots at the basket," said Kevin Martin, who had 31 points Dieng, the 21st pick in last summers draft, made his first career start in place of Nikola Pekovic, who sat out with soreness in his right ankle. "I was prepared if I get minutes or not I was just going to keep working," Dieng said. "I think you should work more when you dont play a lot. I didnt get minutes. I never got frustrated. Just keep working and I know my time will come one day." A former Timberwolves player saw Diengs potential firsthand. "I told him since the first day he got here that its your job to block shots. You got drafted to rebound and block shots. His post games getting better as well. If he sticks with that hes going to be a good player in this league," said Derrick Williams, who scored 26 points and had 11 rebounds off the bench for Sacramento. Williams knows about being a young player in Minnesota. The second-overall pick in the 2011 Draft, Williams had two disappointing seasons with the Timberwolves before being traded to Sacramento on Nov. 26 for Luc Mbah a Moute, who has been a non-factor for Minnesota. "I think anybody who gets traded wants to play good against the team that traded them," he said. "I just wanted to be aggressive because (DeMarcus) Cousins was out and I was the next man up. Coach wants me to be aggressive and thats what I did tonight." Cousins, the Kings starting centre, misseed the game with right knee tendinitis. Jalen Ramsey Jersey. He was replaced by Aaron Gray, who hadnt seen action since Feb. 25. Gray finished with four points in 20 minutes. "Its a testament to Aarons work ethic and his positive attitude for him to be ready to play tonight after not playing in so many games," coach Michael Malone said. "It was good to see him out there." Love hit 3 of 6 3-pointers, including one with 1:07 to play to give Minnesota a 97-95 lead and the Timberwolves hung on to win for the 33rd time, their most wins since 2005-06. Sacramentos Isaiah Thomas had 27 points, including two 3-pointers in the final 15 seconds to keep it close. Thomas scored from beyond the arc with 13.2 seconds left to get the Kings within two. After Martin made two free throws to make it 102-98 with 12.1 seconds left, Thomas answered with another 3-pointer before Martin made two more free throws with 5.7 seconds left. It was the second straight night the Kings couldnt close out a game, leaving them with a 2-5 record on a season-long seven-game road trip. They were outscored by six points in the fourth quarter and lost 94-87 in Chicago Saturday. "We were in there; we had a chance to win, but we just couldnt capitalize," Thomas said. Down 29-19 late in the first quarter, Williams provided a spark by scoring 10 straight points off the bench to get the Kings within three by quarters end. Williams had six more in the second quarter as the Kings took a 54-53 halftime lead. NOTES: Sacramento has officially been eliminated from playoff contention. ... Listed as day to day, Pekovic missed 13 games earlier this season -- including all of February -- with bursitis in his right ankle. ... Minnesota entered the game averaging a league-low 3.5 blocks per game. ... Thomas reached 1,000 career assists with a first-quarter helper, becoming the eighth player in Sacramento history to have that many in his first three seasons with the Kings. ... Martin made his 1,000th career 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. ... Twelve of Sacramentos final 15 games are in the Pacific time zone. NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
