It was an unconventional decision to kick off Sundays WWE No Mercy pay-per-view with the main event, but the incredibly high level of SmackDown Live shows the past month helped set the stage for a thriller -- and the tone for the night. Kyle Lowry Jersey .There are any number of reasons the WWE chose to open with the triple threat WWE world championship match, which was won by defending champion?A.J. Styles?via pinfall at 21 minutes, 15 seconds over?John Cena?and?Dean Ambrose?at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.?Sure, its a good way to draw early viewers on a night with plenty of competition, including a presidential debate and a Sunday Night Football game. But theres also the strength of the rest of the card and the ability to close strong with a match such as the career vs. title Intercontinental championship match on top of everything else.The triple threat match had everything fans might have wanted: crazy in-ring action, points at which you believed each of the three competitors had grabbed the momentum and great storytelling inside the ring. Styles managed to pick up the victory despite tapping out mid-match, and he did it once again in a heel manner by hitting Cena?with a chair and picking up the pinfall victory.Styles, Cena and Ambrose took the unusual approach of going back and forth among the three of them over the first few minutes of the match, with the first signs of separation coming when the trio executed a double German suplex. The maneuver drew the first Mama Mia of the evening from commentator Mauro Ranallo, as Cena lifted both Styles and Ambrose into the air.There was a moment in which Styles showed a flash from his TNA past by hitting a springboard moonsault from the middle rope and catching Ambrose in an inverted DDT position. He completed the crazy combination by simultaneously hitting a neckbreaker on Cena. A quick two-count was soon followed by Cenas getting in some unique offense by hitting a Code Red on Styles for another two count.One of the biggest complaints (and one true drawback to matches involving different combinations of this trio) -- too many finishers without an ending to the match -- was handled well in this triple threat showdown. We were well into the match before the first finishers, a pair of Attitude Adjustments from Cena, were hit. Styles rolled out of the ring to save himself, and Ambrose kicked out only at the very last moment.There was a Styles springboard 450 and impressively athletic moves from both Cena and Ambrose, but each and every time a finisher came into play, the third man was able to break up the pinfall or submission before one of his opponents could pick up the victoryIt was an interesting twist to have both Cena and Ambrose put on different parts of a submission and have Styles tap out, if only because WWE fans have far too many memories of screwy finishes and titles being vacated under such circumstances. Referee Mike Chiodas decision to have the match restarted because neither Cena nor Ambrose was the clear victor was followed by a collective sigh of relief from an audience that worried there would be some kind of incomplete finish to a match of this caliber.Allowing Styles to get the pass in this scenario -- and ultimately, the victory, despite it -- was a wonderful touch, and having him do so by pulling out a chair and nailing Cena twice for the victory worked well. You dont often see a three-way feud carry on beyond a single pay-per-view, but in this case, it seems this trio has more of a story to tell.For full match recaps and ratings from WWE No Mercy, click here. Jonas Valanciunas Raptors Jersey . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. Authentic Terrence Ross Jersey . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. http://www.raptorsnbateamshop.com/delon-wright-raptors-jersey/ . It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. Friday gives us a balanced slate, tempered a bit with an afternoon affair in Wrigley Field making the attractive matchup between Jake Arrieta and Adam Wainwright mostly just for viewing pleasure as its off the board in the main DFS contests. Chances to qualify for the big DFS tournaments and live events are waning while its crunch time in head-to-head leagues as clubs battle to make the playoff or improve seeding. Theres something for everyone in Fridays Daily Notes.PitchingEliteStephen Strasburg is in a great spot to add to his potential Cy Young resume as the Atlanta Braves visit Nationals Park. The right-hander will no doubt rank up goodly whiffs because thats what he does, just keep in mind the Braves may tote a weak offense but they dont fan excessively. This renders the Washington Nationals co-ace much better for DFS cash play than tournament action.As mentioned in the introduction, the Chicago Cubs host the St. Louis Cardinals in the standard Friday matinee. Its worth noting the Redbirds are uncharacteristically striking out at an elevated pace versus fright-handers the past month.Chris Archer has rewarded his patient seasonal owners as hes picked up the pace significantly the past month or so. The final numbers will still be disappointing, but if you cut bait on Archer, you missed out on a second half stretch of seven starts, spanning 45 1/3 innings with a respectable 3.18 ERA and sparkling 1.01 WHIP plus 51 punch puts to boot. Archer will be on the hill for Alex Rodriguezs last game in pinstripes as the Tampa Bay Rays head to the Bronx for a weekend set. Despite some veteran lefty swingers with a solid track record, the New York Yankees have not fared well versus righties while Archers offense has smacked southpaws around. With CC Sabathia on the hill for the home team, Archer is in great shape for a solid game with decent run support, making him a GPP option even on the road in a hitters park.David Price continues to be one of the more frustrating pitchers to analyze, let alone own in all of fantasy baseball. His whiff and walk rates are nearly identical to last season where he boasted a 2.45 ERA, albeit artificially low as suggested by a 2.78 FIP and 3.24 xFIP. This season, in part buoyed by a bloated 0.333 batting average on balls in play (BABIP) in tandem with a 14 percent home run per fly ball rate (HR/FB), the Boston Red Sox southpaw checks in with a 4.34 ERA, a bit higher than his 3.41 FIP and 3.28 xFIP. Its interesting to note via xFIP, Price is essentially the same guy as last season. Keep in mind the key to xFIP is normalizing HR/FB, ostensibly tying home run rate to luck. This is where improvements in data collection and analysis will help flesh out the bad luck from bad pitching. Its safe to say Price has been a victim of both. Next up is an interleague tilt as the Arizona Diamondbacks slither into Fenway Park for a weekend visit. The Snakes pound lefties and get to use an extra hitter, but they also fan at an elevated clip versus lefties. Price makes for an intriguing GPP option, with one of the higher ceilings on the Friday card.SolidWhen a Colorado Rockies hurler draws a soft road matchup, the narrative usually involves mentioning their home and away splits. A slightly higher Coors Field ERA side, from a skills-basis, Jon Gray has been just as good, if not better a mile high than when traveling. The 24-year old right-hander will take the hill in Citizens Bank Park to challenge a middling Philadelphia Phillies squad that offers strikeout upside on top of his already impressive 9.4 K/9. Gray is one of the better DFS options in all formats.With the note this start point conveniently begins right after a six-run outing to begin July, Sean Manaea gas spun off six starts featuring a 2.58 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 38 1/3 innings with 34 punch outs. Unfortunately for his seasonal league owners, the Oakland Athletics have not blessed the southpaw with any run support so hes gone winless during this stretch. With the Seattle Mariners sending Ariel Miranda to the O. Co Coliseum hill, Manaea has a decent chance of securing his first victory since June 29.Itll be the classic matchup of strength versus strength as the Texas Rangers host the Detroit Tigers with Yu Darvish taking the ball for the home team. Since returning from the disabled list on July 16, the righty has fanned an impressive 43 in just 29 1/3 frames. Theres some risk but if youre looking to take down a DFS tournament, Darvish could easily register the top points total on the card.Theres only seven hurlers that fall in the solid range with the others not as intriguing for DFS play. As such, well move onto the heavily-populated streaming section where some additional DFS options will be identified. If you want some additional analysis on a pitcher that was left out, or anything pertaining to Fridays schedule, please let me know in the comments or through Twitter to @ToddZola.Streamers There are 18 hurlers, most of which are well below the threshold of 50 percent ownership of ESPN leagues. If youre looking to make up some ground, Fridays a great slate to get a head start before needing to scramble over the weekend.Despite not possessing all that much mustard on his heater, Joe Musgrove has maintained a high strikeout rate. This will be put to the test as the Houston Astroos head north of the border to take on the Toronto Blue Jays. Terrence Ross Raptors Jersey. The hosts will be without the disabled Jose Bautista but are still dangerous. If youre in a tight ratio battle, its best to look elsewhere but if you need some punch outs, Musgrove is in play for a spot start as well as DFS play.As is often the case when returning from Tommy John surgery, Homer Baileys control and command is rusty. The Cincinnati Reds rightys debut against the San Diego Padres went much better than his follow-up against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bailey draws another weak opponent in the Milwaukee Brewers for his third straight road effort. This is another instance where a buffer in ratios would aid your effort to chase whiffs as the home team fans at a generous 26 percent clip versus righties.Ross Stripling is taking the spot originally intended for Rich Hills debut in blue but the newly acquired Los Angeles Dodgers lefty remains on the shelf with blister issues. Stripling has held the fort when called upon and will face a Pittsburgh Pirates club thats been in a rut, sporting the second worst wOBA versus righties for the past month.A Coors Field affair interrupted a string of solid efforts by Andrew Casher. The July acquisition for the Miami Marlins Is set up to regain some momentum as the offensively challenged Chicago White Sox head to South Beach for an interleague tilt.Logan Verrett has been hit hard, but with a date in Citi Field against the San Diego Padres in tow, the New York Mets right-handers is in play.On paper, Kyle Gibsons pitch-to-contact style plays right into the Kansas City Royals offense but the defending World Series champs are a different unit, one that the Minnesota Twins righty can frustrate. Gibson still wont rack up many whiffs but he should keep run scoring in check and be in play for a win.Well continue a recurring theme as Francisco Liriano will face a Houston Astros club prone to the strikeout, but also capable of sending the Toronto Blue Jays new lefty to an early shower. Lirianos strikeout potential puts him in play for DFS deployment.Well send with Ivan Nova, whose projected Game Score is still being penalized from his time in the Bronx. Nova will almost always be in play at home; Friday hes in play as the Los Angeles Dodger welcome the Bucs to southern California for a weekend set.AvoidAs tempting as it is to add Matt Cain to the avoid list for his encounter with the Baltimore Orioles, the game is on AT&T Park and the San Francisco Giants veteran right-hander has shown ample flashes of mediocrity to still be in play. That leaves Patrick Corbin and his automatic avoid Game Score of 45 as the sole arm too risky to use regardless of the scenario. And even that could change depending on the health of his opponents lead off and clean-up hitter as the Diamondbacks visit Beantown where Mookie Betts and David Ortiz are battling injuries.HittingThe Boston Red Sox and their scuffling but dangerous lineup are in a good spot even if Betts is unable to return as hes nursing a sore calf. Big Papi fouled a ball off his shin Wednesday night and had to be helped off the field but was in the lineup last night. With a southpaw on the hill, he may get the night off so monitor lineups. Dustin Pedroia has assumed the leadoff spot and is likely to stay there even if Betts is back. Xander Bogaerts, Hanley Ramirez and Aaron Hill also enjoy the platoon edge over Patrick Corbin.The Miami Marlins righties are lined up for a big game with Chicago White Sox southpaw Carlos Rodon taking the hill in Marlins Park. Giancarlo Stanton (if active) leads the way with Marcel Ozuna, Martin Prado and Chris Johnson also in play. Stanton missed Wednesdays game with a sore hip but is expected to play after Thursdays off-day.Mike Foltynewicz has big issues with lefty swingers. However, the Washington Nationals top left-hander, Bryce Harper, has missed three straight games so he Atlanta Braves righty ay catch a break. If Harper is back, hes obviously in play, joining Daniel Murphy, Ben Revere and switch hitter Danny Espinosa.The Texas Rangers will square off with Anibal Sanchez. The Detroit Tigers veteran righty has pitched better since returning to the rotation but in Globe Life Park, hes a risk. Platoon splits arent as actionable with Sanchez but the Rangers like to play matchups so their lefties Rougned Odor, Nomar Mazara, Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Moreland are the prime beneficiaries along with switch hitter Carlos Beltran.Without Jay Bruce, the Cincinnati Reds left-handed brethren lost a chief cog when facing a vulnerable like Jimmy Nelson. However, joey Votto and Scott Schebler remain to take advantage along with Billy Hamilton. The speedster is in an especially great spot since the Milwaukee Brewers starter has been on the bump for 18 successful stolen base tries and is likely to surpass last seasons total of 24.Most likely to hit a home run: Giancarlo Stanton/Marcell OzunaThe culprit will be Rodon. If Stanton is playing, hes the call but if not, his teammate Ozuna will be betrothed with the task.Most likely to steal a base: Billy HamiltonThe question isnt if, but how many bags Hamilton swipes with Nelson on the hill. Ill say three. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

TOKYO -- Five sports, including surfing and skateboarding, moved a step closer to being included in the Tokyo 2020 Games after being described as a dynamic and exciting package by the IOC. Swingman Mike Conley Jersey .Skateboarding, surfing, karate, sports climbing and baseball/softball were all recommended for inclusion by the IOC. An Olympic program commission report released on Friday said the five are a blend of the traditional and emerging, youth-focused events, and all have international and local appeal.The IOC will make the final decision on the five sports in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 3, two days before the opening ceremony of the 2016 Games.In assessing the case for inclusion, the commission considered gender equality, youth appeal and their legacy value.The inclusion of the new sports would add 18 events and 474 athletes, with equal numbers of women and men for all sports except baseball/softball, because softball teams have 15 players, whilst baseball teams have 24.The report said the new sports in Tokyo would not threaten the inclusion of existing Olympic sports or be binding on future host cities.Baseball and softball, which are making a combined bid to return, were dropped after the 2008 Beijing Games. Their hopes for inclusion are boosted by their popularity in Japan. Bryant Reeves Grizzlies Jersey.ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

England face a late selection quandary over the inclusion of Chris Woakes in the team for the second Test. Swingman DeMarre Carroll Jersey .Woakes, who bowled immaculately in the first Test, was described as fine to play by England captain Alastair Cook. But the England captain also admitted Woakes was suffering from a bowling niggle and from the wear and tear of bowling.As a result, England are considering rotating him with a view to injury prevention and to ensure he is fit for the final three Tests of the series.If Woakes is rested - and it was noticeable that he did not play in the warm-up football match that precedes most training sessions - England have to decide whether to pick James Anderson, who has not played a game since August, or recall Steven Finn or Jake Ball.Its a real tough one, Cook admitted. We know what weve got coming up but the way the 11 guys played in the last game was outstanding. So its either the rotation policy or do you stick with what weve got. Thats the decision weve got to make.Woakes is the one were looking at because of the amount of overs he has bowled over the last six or seven weeks. He was outstanding in Rajkot, so we will have to make a decision. He has just got a bowling niggle really. Just the normal wear and tear of bowling, so hes fine to play.More to followDelon Wright Raptors Jersey .

GLENDALE, Ariz. Jrue Holiday Pelicans Jersey . -- The Arizona Cardinals have reached a contract agreement with first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper. The four-year deal is worth about $14.5 million, the maximum allowed under the NFL collective bargaining agreement for Cooper as the seventh pick overall. The 6-foot-2, 311-pound guard from North Carolina missed the first two days of training camp, when the team worked out in shorts. He was en route to Arizona and also missed Sundays practice, the teams first in pads. He was expected to practice Monday. Cooper had worked out at left guard with the starting unit through the off-season. The agreement leaves two first-round picks unsigned -- cornerback Dee Milliner of the New York Jets (ninth pick overall) and guard Chance Warmack of the Tennessee Titans (10th). Arizona coach Bruce Arians got word of the contract agreement when a note was passed to him during his daily briefing with reporters on Sunday. "Just got word that Jonathan Cooper is done and is on his way," Arians said. "He still missed time, but Im a lot happier now. Were excited to have him in and watch him run the conditioning test -- in front of the whole team." Although Cooper did miss a bit of training camp, his off-season work leaves him familiar with whats expected of him. "He got a zillion reps," Arians said. He joins an offensive unit that was called out for poor play by its coach on Sunday. "Thats the disappointing thing to me right now," Arians said. "Its not like our guys didnt have plenty of reps, because we had two practices going on during all of OTAs. Theres no excuses right now for making the mental errors that were making on offence." The coach has declared competition for the two starting tackle jobs -- Levi Brown and Nate Potter on the left side, newcomer Eric Winston and Bobby Massie on the right. Daryn Colledge has moved from left to right guard with Lyle Sendlein at centre. "Im very disappointed right now with the play up front," he said. "Way too many mental errors. The physical part well start seeing this afternoon. Weve got to get better. I think that theyve got enough pride that theyre going to fix it. I think theyre anxious to get pads on. Of all the people that get hurt playing in shorts, its the big guys." Cooper, a first-team Associated Press All-American, started a school-record 48 games at left guard for North Carolina and earned the 2012 Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the best lineman in the SEC. He is the first guard taken in the top eight of the draft since 1982, when Mike Munchak was selected by the Houston Oilers as the eighth overall pick. In a draft loaded with players up front, Cooper was the fifth lineman selected. Swingman Tyreke Evans Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Swingman Anthony Davis Jersey .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. http://www.shoppelicansonline.com/Authentic-Anthony-Davis-Pelicans-Jersey/ .

Rising Star winner Callum Mills is adamant he will be cherry ripe for the AFL grand final, with both Sydney and the Western Bulldogs upbeat there will be no late changes on Saturday at the MCG. Matt Ryan Super Bowl Jersey .With Mills set to return from a hamstring strain, Swans co-captain Jarrad McVeigh was also selected after overcoming a calf issue.The Bulldogs included ruckman Jordan Roughead (eye) and defender Dale Morris (achilles) in their side, with coach Luke Beveridge declaring both will be right to play.Mills hasnt played a full game since August 20, having tweaked his hamstring during the Swans loss to Greater Western Sydney in week one of the finals.But the 19-year-old harbours no fear about breaking down during the high-stakes contest.Weve done all the possible steps we can and are very confident going into tomorrow that the hamstring will be strong, Mills said.Ive been training for a couple of weeks now, so its not really at the forefront of my mind.Mills dismissed the idea his run at the MCG on Friday morning was a fitness test.I didnt have to do anything extra today. It was just a normal week and, if I got through the week, Id be fine, he said.I hadnt done a hamstring before so ... I wasnt too positive straight away but, when we got the scans, we knew Id be in with a shot.McVeigh hasnt progressed as far in his rehab but is likewise bullish.Theres always risks but weve had players play with this injury before, he said.(The plan) was to train Wednesday, do a bit of running and then do a lot more than the boys today.I did that, I feel great and Im ready to go.Meanwhile, Beveridge revealed the full extent of Morris recent setback.It was in the warm-up last week; he just had something going on with his achilles which was a bit alarming, Beveridge said.We thought for a second we were going to have to pull him out of the game.It just turns out its a minor little thing. Hes been fine.Beveridge expressed similar sentiments about Roughead but suggested selecting Matt Suckling would have been a risk.Suckling, nursing a sore achilles this month, missed the Bulldogs preliminary final. But hes been named as an emergency for the grand final.Its disappointing for Matty, but it was just too hard to omit one of his teammates, he said. Julio Jones Falcons Jersey .

The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. http://www.atlantafalconsnflstore.com/authentic-tevin-coleman-falcons-jersey/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Jimmie Johnson walked across the stage after driver introductions to find his car inexplicably missing from pit road.In a dramatic start to his race for a record-tying seventh championship, Johnson learned NASCARs inspectors had yanked his Chevrolet off the pre-race grid and sent it back through tech. The Hendrick Motorsports team had been accused of manipulating a body panel, and Johnson had to start last in the field.In less than 30 laps, he was sniffing the top-10.He come from last doing that? Joey Logano asked him team, Wow.The best was yet to come.For most of the day, Johnson was the worst of the championship contenders in a winner-take-all season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He needed only to beat three other drivers to tie Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt with a record seven titles, but he was clearly not in the same league as the other finalists Sunday night.Johnson, who seemed to have sensed the last 10 weeks that he was finally going to grab that special seventh title, never panicked.I felt like something was going to happen, and I was going to be OK with it, Johnson said. For a while I came to grips with the reality of (finishing) third, fourth, somewhere in there and shaking somebody elses hand and being happy for them.Then it changed so quick at the end.Johnson was practically gifted his seventh title when Carl Edwards aggressive attempt to win the championship ended in a wreck. Johnson got the restart of his life in overtime, took the lead on the very last lap of the race, won for the first time in his career at Homestead and grabbed the final Sprint Cup trophy.The win was the 15th for Hendrick Motorsports and seventh for crew chief Chad Knaus, who now only trails Dale Inmans record eight.When I was coming to the checkered flag, I had to really look closely at it going by to make sure it was, like, `Is this really happening? Johnson said.Johnson received kind words from Petty, while Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. represented his late father in victory lane.I told Jimmie I wish Dad was here to shake his hand, Earnhardt said. Dad would think hes such a bad-ass. Hes such a great racce car driver. Keanu Neal Super Bowl Jersey. How he won this thing tonight, I dont think a lot of people know, he can will himself to get (his all) out of a car when it matters. Theres a lot of circumstance that played into it, but he put himself in that position.Edwards seemed headed for the title until a caution with 10 laps remaining set up a wild sequence. Edwards tried to block Logano on the restart, wound up wrecked, and it was Johnson who drove through the carnage to take the championship lead.Johnson withstood two more restarts and dedicated the final two attempts at the win to the late Ricky Hendrick, who was one of 10 friends and family members killed in a 2004 plane crash.They were nowhere all day, and just kind of ran around, I dont know, probably, Id guess sixth, said 2015 champion Kyle Busch. Never really showed their hand at all and didnt really show any speed, never really led in the laps until the last one, and thats the only one that really matters.Perhaps its because Johnson had no plan. This was one of those rare days in racing when someone elses bad breaks benefited a driver who was prepared to pounce. Edwards accident gave him a chance Johnson didnt have a mere five laps earlier.It wasnt looking good, Knaus admitted. I still dont think that we necessarily had the speed that we need. The one thing that we have in our corner is we have Jimmie Johnson. He is the one that makes things happen when we dont necessarily have the race cars.When we do have the race cars that we need, he does phenomenal things.Also doubting the situation was team owner Rick Hendrick, standing atop the pit box and lamenting with 10 laps to go that it was over for Johnson. His wife told him Johnson was still going to win the race. Hendrick didnt take her seriously.When we had that last caution and he came out and took the lead, I couldnt believe it, Hendrick said. I was actually stunned because we had so many ups and downs in that race.Indeed, from last to first and the top of the record books.---More AP auto racing: www.racing.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Despite the improving Chinese Super League and its growing number of famous foreign stars, it is a second appearance at the World Cup by its homegrown players that fans in China truly crave.And if their national team can beat 2002 semifinalist South Korea in Seoul on Thursday night, the chances of a trip to Russia in 2018 may improve considerably.The Chinese Super Leagues highest-profile stars -- such as Alex Teixeira, Hulk and Jackson Martinez -- will be of no help when China makes the short journey to the South Korean capital for the opening game in the last round of Asian qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.For China, which made it only World Cup appearance in 2002, the precedents are troubling. It has defeated South Korea just once in 30 meetings.Not only is history against the visitors, but recent form is too. South Korea, who has appeared at the past eight World Cups, breezed through the second round of qualification, winning all seven games, scoring 24 goals and conceding none. China, appearing in the final round of qualification for the first time since 2002, squeezed through as the fourth of the best four group runners-up.We know it will be a difficult game but we are ready for the challenge, said China coach Gao Hongbo, who was in charge in 2010 when China recorded its famous victory over South Korea at the East Asian Cup. My goal as head coach is to qualify for Russia 2018. We are not here just as a training partner for our opponents. The mentality of chasing the win is essential for every coach and player.China has included just one overseas-based player in its 25-man squad for the game in Seoul and the home match against Iran in the northeastern city of Shenyang five days later. South Korea, in contrast, has just three domestic stars in its roster.There has been speculation that South Koreas most famous export, Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min, is being chased by Bundesliga clubs.I havent heard anything about my transfer, Son, who joined the English Premier League team in August 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen, told reporters. I dont want to think about things happening outside the stadium. I just want to focus on playing football.The 12 remainiing Asian teams have been split into two groups of six, with the top two from each qualifying automatically for Russia 2018. Julio Jones Super Bowl Jersey. Elsewhere in Group A, Syria travels to Uzbekistan and Iran, aiming for a fifth World Cup appearance, hosts Qatar in Tehran. Qatar is eager to qualify and give its team World Cup exposure before the country hosts the 2022 event. Qatari was one of the more impressive performers in the second round of qualification, topping its group with ease.In Group B, Asian champion Australia kicks off its qualification campaign against Iraq in Perth and then plays United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi on Sept. 6.Tim Cahill has been selected by coach Ange Postecoglou, keeping the 36-year-old former English Premier League star in contention for a fourth World Cup appearance.Hes still a very important part of what we do and we know that even if hes not capable of playing 90 minutes, he can certainly make an impact for us, Postecoglou said of Cahill.Japan, expected to challenge Australia for the top spot in Group B, hosts United Arab Emirates in Saitama. The UAE knocked Japan out of the 2015 Asian Cup on its way to finishing in third place.There are 13 European-based players in Japans squad, while the UAEs roster is entirely home-based. Despite that, playmaker Omar Abdulrahman, regarded as one of the biggest talents in Asian soccer, is confident that his team can return home with a good result.We respect the Japanese team completely, Abdulrahman said. We came here to show a good level, and take a positive return, and already have defeated the Japanese national team at the Asian Cup. Now we will try to repeat it.Saudi Arabia, coached by Bert Van Marwijk who led the Netherlands to the final of the 2010 World Cup, will host Thailand in the other Group B match. The Saudis have qualified for four World Cups but the last appearance came in 2006.The teams that finish third in each of the Asian qualifying groups will play off for the right to take on the fourth-place team from the CONCAFAF region for a spot at the 2018 World Cup. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Liverpool legend Phil Thompson believes that silverware is more important to the club than securing Champions League football ahead of Wednesdays Europa League final.Stephen Curry USA Jersey . The winner of Europes second-tier tournament will qualify for the group stages of the Champions League next season, adding to the importance of the Basel showdown between the Reds, who finished eighth in the Premier League, and La Ligas 7th-placed side, Sevilla.But Thommo, who won three European Cups during his distinguished Anfield career, insists securing silverware is still the most important factor for both the club and the players. Speaking to Sky Sports, Thompson said: If you ask me, winning a trophy is always the most important. People talk about finishing fourth like its winning a trophy but its not. Liverpool have seen off Dortmund and Villarreal to reach the final I think its massive for these players playing in another final. Winning trophies brings you a mentality which you cant put a price on.This is Liverpool Football Club and prestige of competing in finals, especially European ones, is huge, thats why players want to play for this club.Obviously a lot of people in England see it as second rate but in Europe its huge. I remember in 2001 when we won our three trophies and all the foreign players and Gerard Houllier saw the UEFA Cup as the most important one over the FA Cup and League Cup. Winning trophies brings you a mentality which you cant put a price on. Phil Thompson However, Thommo has warned Liverpool fans not to get too carried away if they do return to Europes top competition as Klopp comes to the end of his first season in charge.He added: It puts us back up there competing with the best but it doesnt suddenly make us contenders to win the Champions League.  Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool dont need luck to beat Sevilla in the Europa League final Finishing seventh in the Premier League isnt good enough. Its a stepping stone in the right direction but its consistency that this team need in order to compete for the league.What people have still got to remember is this is Brendan Rodgers squad so Klopp still has to do a fair bit of tinkering to get a the right players for his style of play to really be effective.  Thommo predicts...

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Amid horrific crashes and the occasional overzealous fans halting the race, a record 175 of 198 total riders completed the 103rd event yesterday. Highest single payout: $549K ($2.5M total).

Since Massachusetts moved to the Bowl Subdivision five years ago, the Minutemen have eight victories and 40 losses, have averaged less than the NCAA minimum attendance of 15,000 for their homes games and were essentially kicked out of a conference. LeGarrette Blount Youth Jersey .Instead of giving up its major college football aspirations -- as some on the Amherst campus would prefer -- UMass is sticking it out and going it alone, becoming an FBS independent this season at a time when that has never been more challenging.Scheduling is harder. Bowls are tougher to access. Television exposure is more difficult to find. Revenue often has to come at the expense of wins. Even Notre Dame has given up some of its treasured independence for the stability of partial conference affiliation with the Atlantic Coast Conference.UMass athletic director Ryan Bamford knows having an independent football program is not a long-term solution. With the Big 12 looking at expansion, the trickle down could open up a spot in a conference for the Minutemen soon. Or not. Regardless, Bamford believes the lonely road is worth traveling to stay in college footballs top tier.With a little bit of risk theres great opportunity and great reward there, Bamford said this spring.Faced with a similar stay-or-go choice, New Mexico State decided it will become an independent in 2018 after the Sun Belt Conference ends its football-only relationship with the school.Idaho, however, went the other way after being ousted by the Sun Belt and is prepared to head back to the Championship Subdivision after the 2017 season and join the Big Sky Conference, a natural geographic fit. Idaho athletic director Rob Spear said geography and finances were working against the Vandals, but the school could have made it work in the FBS with a conference home.Independent, in my opinion, was not a good situation, Spear said.For New Mexico State, geography and finances were reasons to stay in the FBS. Dropping down would have put rivalries with New Mexico and UTEP, located only about 30 miles away from Las Cruces, New Mexico, in jeopardy. Also, being in the FCS would have put New Mexico State at a disadvantage against its rival state school in other areas, athletic director Mario Moccia said.We benchmark ourselves against them on virtually everything. State funding comes into play. Competition for students comes into play, he said.Plus, New Mexico State needs the millions it makes playing a couple of road games a year against Power Five teams to pay off debt and fund the athletic department. As an FCS school, those payouts would drop as much as 75 percent.In the 1980s, independence was common in major college football. Penn State, Miami, Florida State, Syracuse, South Carolina, West Virginia and Pittsburgh were among the high-profile independent programs. As conferences became the power points in college football in the 1990s, negotiating television contracts and aligning with bowl games, schools flocked to them for security. The money didnt hurt, either.Just three schools played as major college football independents last season: Notre Dame, Army and BYU, which is eager to join the Big 12.Notre Dames $15 million per year TV deal with NBC protects the Fighting Irish, but money cant fix everything. When Notre Dame moved all its sports but football and hockey into the ACC, the deal also called for Notre Dame to play five games per season against ACC teams. It also gave the Irish access to ACC bowl games.UMass transitioned to the FBS in 2012 and went 2-22 in its first two seasons as a football-only member of the Mid-American Conference. In 2014, the MAC invoked a clause in its contract with UMass that gave the school two years to either join the conference as a full member or leave.Most UMass teams compete in the Atlantic 10 and a full move to the Midwest-centric MAC made little sense. The FBS transition has gone so poorly that members of the UMass faculty senate in April pushed for a vote on a nonbinding motion to urge the university to return to the FCS or drop football altogether. The vote failed.When Bamford took over at UMass in March 2015, the most pressing issue was the schedule. UMass had one home game scheduled for 2016. The NCAA minimum is five.We were 15 months away from playing and Im saying, `Crap, how am I going to do this? Bamford said.Bamford was able to put together a six-game home schedule and six road games that will help compensate for the lost $850,000 MAC payout. UMass will receive $1.5 million to open the season at Florida, an additional $1.25 million to play at South Carolina and a combined $650,000 for trips to Hawaii and BYU.UMass also has a home game against Mississippi State to be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, home of the NFLs Patriots. That game, along with a game at Gillette against Boston College, should help UMass reach the 15,000 minimum attendance it needs to hit this season after averaging 11,124 last season. Over three seasons, UMass average FBS attendance is 14,347.This seasons schedule helps the bottom line for a program with an $8 million budget that includes about $5 million in student fees and state funds. It wont help the inexperienced team coming off a 3-9 season.Were overloaded some, theres no question about that, said UMass coach Mark Whipple, in the third year of his second stint at the school. Theres reasons for that. I understand those reasons.Idaho spent a season as an independent in the FBS in 2013, waiting for a spot to open up in a conference after Western Athletic Conference football dissolved. The Vandals played at Arkansas, Mississippi and Florida State and lost by a combined 187-52.Youre being unfair to your student athletes and your coaches, Spear said.Bamford and the UMass administration believe striving for potential gains in prestige and revenue that can come with FBS football is worth it. The football program simply needs to be good enough to get into a conference. The American Athletic Conference, with UConn and Temple, is the perfect spot for UMass. But with no recent football success, UMass is not necessarily a perfect match for the AAC if it loses members amid Big 12 expansion.If nothing else, UMass seems to have an athletic director who embraces the challenge.Im so competitive and I love the fact that people dont think we can get this thing going, Bamford said. That it drives me Ive never had anything drive me like it does.---Follow Ralph D. Russo at www.Twitter.com/ralphDrussoAP Irving Fryar Jersey .

GREEN BAY, Wis. Oscar Robertson Jersey . -- Packers?cornerback?Sam Shields suffered a concussion in Sundays regular-season opener at Jacksonville, coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Monday after Shields underwent tests.The concussion is Shields second in less than nine months and the fourth known concussion of his NFL career. He missed four games because of a concussion late last season and missed one game in 2011. He also suffered a concussion in 2014 but didnt miss any games.Any time any of our players is in the protocol and dealing with a concussion, its a concern, McCarthy said Monday. Thats why well evaluate Sam each and every day, and most importantly to make sure hes healthy and goes through the challenges of what hes dealing with.McCarthy offered no other details about Shields condition.Its a protocol, and I think they do a great job, particularly our doctors, of taking it one step at a time, McCarthy said. We definitely are aware of his history, and that will factor in how we move forward.Shields was slow to get up after he tackled Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon in the fourth quarter of Sundays 27-23 win, but he was able to walk off the field under his own power.Last season, Shields missed the final three games of the regular season as well as the wild-card playoff game at Washington after his head slammed onto the Lambeau Field turf in the teams Dec. 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys.If Shields is unavailable for next Sunday nights game, the Packers will turn to a trio of young cornerbacks in second-year pros Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter.While Randall played well as the other starter against the Jaguars, Rollins was benched midway through the game in favor of Gunter, who also struggled. Rollins was forced to return after Shields left the game. Sacramento Kings Jersey .

Pakistan have been found to have fallen short of the targeted over rate in Hamilton by five overs, resulting in stand-in captain Azhar Ali being fined 100% of his match fee, and the rest of the team 50% of their fees each. As per the ICCs rules, players are fined 10% of their fee per unbowled over, with the captain fined double that.The charge was laid by the four officiating umpires and the penalty arrived upon by the match referee, Richie Richardson. Azhar Ali accepted the ruling, so there was no need for a formal hearing.Pakistan had been found to be short of the requiired over rate after the first Test as well, and full-time captain Misbah-ul-Haq was handed a one-match ban, given it was his second minor over-rate offence in the same format in a period of 12 months; as per the rules two offences in 12 months equate to fines and a suspension from the immediately subsequent match in the same format. Swingman Oscar Robertson Jersey.

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers have added top prospects including Josh Hader and Lewis Brinson to their 40-man roster while claiming minor leaguer and Milwaukee native Adam Walker off waivers from the Minnesota Twins. Custom Bucks Jersey .Hader, a left-handed starter, and Brinson, an outfielder, are considered two of the best prospects in the game. The Brewers also added minor league outfielders Brett Phillips and Ryan Cordell along with right-handed pitcher Taylor Williams to their 40-man roster.Walker hit .243 with 27 homers and 75 RBIs in 132 games for Triple-A Rochester last season. He struck out 202 times.The slugger is looking to cut down on his strikeouts and get more disciplined at the plate. Walker can play both right and left fields.Walker said Friday that he was excited for a fresh start. The Twins third-round draft pick in 2012 attended Milwaukee Lutheran High school, and his family still lives in the city.I was born and raised in Milwaukee, and Ive been watching the Brewers my whole life, the 25-year-old Walker said. Its pretty cool. Jabari Parker Bucks Jersey . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. Ray Allen Bucks Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. http://www.nbabucksproshop.com/Authentic-Vin-Baker-Bucks-Jersey/ . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. DENVER -- Yasiel Puigs up-and-down career took another turn when the Los Angeles Dodgers sent the outfielder to the minors a day after they couldnt move him before the non-waiver trade deadline.The Dodgers also optioned pitcher Ross Stripling to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room for their new additions, outfielder Josh Reddick and reliever Jesse Chavez.Los Angeles told Puig not to come to Dodger Stadium on Monday ahead of the teams trip to Colorado for a series against the Rockies. Puig complied, and now he has 72 hours to report to the minors.The technical move is a designation for the purposes of securing optional waivers, Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi said. He has not been assigned yet, but our expectation is that he will be assigned to Oklahoma City on Thursday. He will have 72 hours to report, so we expect him to be there by this weekend.The Dodgers acquired Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill from Oakland on Monday, as well as Chavez from Toronto. Hill is on the 15-day disabled list with a blister on his pitching hand.Reddick was in the lineup Tuesday against Colorado, batting fourth and playing right field.My main goal right now is to get to know these guys so I can fit in with a new team, said Reddick, who hit .296 with eight homers for the Athletics. But once the lights come on and that first pitch is thrown, then everybody is on the same page to win.Puig was an Alll-Star in 2014 after a meteoric rise with the Dodgers, who signed the Cuban prospect to a $42 million, seven-year contract in June 2012. Jabari Parker Jersey. He hit 35 homers and drove in 111 runs while batting .305 from 2013-14, but slipped to .255 last season while playing in just 79 games due to hamstring troubles.Puig has been physically limited and largely inconsistent even when healthy this season, batting .260 with seven homers in 81 games. His on-base-plus-slugging percentage is down to a career-worst .706.With Yasiel being reassigned it gives him on opportunity to work on getting better, manager Dave Roberts said. Its never to be mistaken how much we care for Yasiel and realize he has so much potential. But he needs to continue to work on a routine and being consistent with mechanics and overall growth as a person.We expect him to understand that this is not punitive; its for his growth to ultimately become a better baseball player.Zaidi said the Dodgers have told Puig through his representatives that they are doing what is best for the team.There are certainly things that we believe he can do better off the field and those have been communicated to him, Zaidi said. I believe he and his representation understand what we are hoping happens moving forward. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
