Jesse Lingard's goal was his first for England in nine appearances

Lingard made the decisive contribution just before the hour, arriving on the edge of the penalty area to fire low past Dutch keeper Jeroen Zoet, who got a hand to the shot but could not keep it out. Men's Nike Limited Laquon Treadwell Minnesota Vikings White Jersey: NFL Vapor Untouchable #11 RoadIt was just reward for manager Gareth Southgate and his players after a controlled display with an experimental side, including Kyle Walker on the right side of a three-man defence. Nike Lance Kendricks Men's Green Limited Jersey: #84 NFL Green Bay Packers Player Name & Number Tank TopSouthgate's only complaint will be England should have made more of their domination of possession, though they should also have had a penalty when Marcus Rashford was brought down by a combination of Zoet and defender Matthijs de Ligt. Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford had the satisfaction of keeping a second successive clean sheet for England, although there was a setback when Liverpool's Joe Gomez went off early through injury. Despite that, the Netherlands Womens Victor Oladipo Jersey seldom threatened in former Everton boss Ronald Koeman's first game in charge after Dick Advocaat's resignation.Southgate's team selection raised eyebrows in a defensive context - particularly his use of Walker in a three-man defence rather than in his accustomed right-back position. But Southgate can be satisfied with how his system worked, despite the early disruption when Gomez went It was a performance that must be placed context as it came against a very poor Dutch side in an obvious period of transition, but England were solid and composed, got a lead they deserved and protected it in complete comfort. Walker settled well into his new role, and his raw pace certainly gives Southgate another option as he finalises his defensive options for Russia.Greater tests will lie ahead with more threat than this lame and lacklustre Netherlands but England fully merited stretching their unbeaten run since their loss to France in Paris in June 2017. Pickford was given a big opportunity to strengthen his claim to be England's first-choice keeper at the World Cup when he Danny Woodhead Jersey was given the starting place in Amsterdam.And, despite one or two anxious moments, the Everton keeper can be happy with Trevor Plouffe Jersey a clean sheet to make it no goals conceded in his two England appearances. Pickford - signed by Koeman for £30m from Sunderland in the summer - did well to sense danger and plunge at the feet of Quincy Promes when he threatened, and also showed safe handling to save from Memphis Kasperi Kapanen Youth jersey Depay. He also snuffed out late danger with a confident claim of a cross into his area.

Video of 'caged' Ireland fans in Turkey sparkS

A Twitter post from an travelling Irish fan who watched the 1-0 defeat against Turkey in Antalya has caused a stir, with the cage holding in the travelling supporters a blast from the game's past. Men's Detroit Red Wings #17 Brett Hull Reebok Red Premier 2016 Stadium Series NHL JerseyTurkey are hoping to host the 2024 European Championship finals, but the image of Ireland fans penned into the stand with the view blocked by a fence was not what they visiting fans would have been expecting in the modern game. With the friendly international failing to capture the imagination on the field, the post by Twitter user Zeno Kelly attracted plenty of attention on social media channels.He was clearly unimpressed with the accommodation offered to Ireland fans and it is easy to appreciate why when you see this view from the stands. Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill was joined by captain Seamus Coleman in hailing the contribution of debutant Declan Rice in the 1-0 defeat against Turkey in Antalya. English-born Rice was the stand-out performer for Ireland, as he banished any doubters over his eagerness to represent Ireland at international level with a classy performance that was saluted by Coleman."We’re disappointed to have lost but I thought Declan was brilliant," said captain Coleman, himself making a first international appearance since breaking a leg against Wales last year. "He wasn’t just brilliant today, he’s been brilliant all week in training. He’s a great lad, desperate to do will and a few of us could have taken a leaf out of his book today."O'Neill was equally gushing over one of his new boys, on a night when he also handed starts to Seanie Maguire and Scott Hogan. "That was pretty impressive for a 19-year-old," said the Ireland boss when asked Damon Severson Authentic Jersey by RTE about Rice's performance, before he was asked about his concerns of the rising star being tapped by England's international side. "Until someone is over the line you don’t want to be calling it in. But he loves playing for us," added O'Neill, with Rice not officially confirmed as an Ireland player until he plays in a competitive match. "His father was there tonight too, so that’s good news. With that sort of a performance we’d obviously want him."Rice certainly seemed to enjoy his moment in the spotlight, as he was delighted with his man of the match award."You always dream of having a good start," said the defender. "Only being 19 years old, and it being my debut Authentic Ryan Hewitt Jersey in a great venue against a great team, to get man of the match is the icing on the cake."The result was disappointing but on a personal level, I was happy to go out there and prove a point." wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys

Afghanistan qualified for 2019 Cricket World Cup after beating Ireland on Friday at the Harare Sports Club.In a game where Corey Liuget Jersey the winner would have directly qualified for the ICC event, the Asian nation chased down the target of 210 with Womens Ricky Jean-Francois Jersey five balls remaining to beat Ireland by five wickets. Men's Nike Indianapolis Colts #23 Frank Gore Limited Olive/Gold 2017 Salute to Service NFL JerseyIreland's William Porterfield won the toss in the must-win game for both sides and opted to bat first. Porterfield along with Paul Stirling, who made a crucial fifty, gave a solid start to his team. Women's Eric Berry Limited Pink Nike Jersey: NFL Kansas City Chiefs #29 Rush FashionThe skipper was dismissed in the 16th over with Ireland on 53. He was soon followed by Andrew Balbirnie (11). Stirling then added 44 runs with Niall O Brien, who scored 36.The Afghanistan spinners registered a terrific turnaround in middle overs after they dismissed Stirling in the 33rd over. Ireland could only add 77 runs in the last 17 overs of their innings and a quickfire 41 off 37 balls from Kevin O Brien helped them reach 209/7 from 50 overs. Leg-spinner Rashid Khan was Afghanistan's top performer with the ball. He took three wickets for 40 in his 10 overs. Dawlat Zardan picked up two wickets while Mohammad Nabi scalped one.In reply, openers Mohammad Shahzad and Gulbadin Naib gave their team a flying start with an 86-run stand Jesse James Youth jersey for the first wicket. Shahzad scored 54 off 50 deliveries while Naib made 45 from 91 balls. Irish bowlers did well to pull back the game after reducing their opposition to 145/4 at one stage but sensible of 39 not out from skipper Asghar Stanikzai and Najibullah Zadran's unbeaten 17 helped Afghanistan qualify for the World Cup. Their qualification is nothing short of a miracle after they lost their first three matches in the qualifiers. Skipper Stanikzai acknowledged the incredible comeback after the match. "We qualify for the 2019 World Cup. It is a dream. Afghanistan is famous for coming back; after losing three games at the start we came back," Stanikzai said after the match.Shahzad was declared the Man Authentic Michael Jordan Jersey of the Match for his valuable fifty. "We lost matches before coming to super six but here we played good cricket. The plan was simple - to wait for the loose delivery. I don't care if it's a spinner or a fast bowler. I believe in myself. My coaching staff and senior players motivate me. Thanks to them, my form is back in a crucial game. West Indies, we are coming," said Shahzad. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseyswholesale jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys from china wholesale jerseyswholesale nfl jerseys

Magnolia claws back from 20-pt deficit to take Game 1 vs SMB

Magnolia overhauled a 20-point deficit to secure 105-103 victory against defending champion San Miguel Beer in Game 1 of their PBA Philippine Cup best-of-7 finals at the Araneta Coliseum on Friday. Men's Adidas Brooklyn Nets #9 DeMarre Carroll Authentic Black Road NBA JerseyAfter playing catch-up in the first three quarters, the Hotshots unloaded a 10-0 run in the Cory Spangenberg Jersey final period to engage the Beermen in a tight match.Ian Sangalang had one of the best performances of his career, firing 29 points to go with his 9 rebounds, while taking on the unenviable task of defending against JuneMar Fajardo. Veteran Rafi Reavis only had 6 points for the Hotshots, but his picture-perfect block on Arwind Santos preserved Magnolia’s tight victory over the more experienced San Miguel.Aldrech Ramos and Mark Barroca added 15 and 15 points, respectively. "It was all about defense in the second half. it was a defensive effort on JuneMar and their guards," said Victolero in the post-game interview.He also marveled on his players' composure despite lagging by as much as 20 points. "We're down by 20 pero di sila nag-give up eh. That's the character na nakuha namin sa past experience. Hopefully ma-sustain namin ang energy na ito."The Beermen were in control during the first half, wherein Fajardo and Alex Cabagnot wrought havoc in the shaded lane for a 63-47 halftime advantage. The Beermen jacked the lead to 20 points early in the third, 72-52, and appeared to be heading to an easy Game 1 victory.But the Hotshots patiently trimmed the deficit to 14 points before launching their full attack in the payoff period. Magnolia got its first taste of the lead after Mark Barroca’s follow up, 101-100, with 1:23 remaining. Marcio Lassiter’s triple later tied Jourdan Lewis Youth jersey the count, 103-all, but Fajardo gave up a costly foul on Sangalang, one that allowed the Magnolia big man to give the Hotshots a 2 points lead via a couple of free throw shots, with 16 seconds to go. From then on, San Miguel desperately tried to come back. However, Cabagnot muffed a tough 3-point attempt and Santos’s jumper got foiled by Reavis, paving the way for Magnolia’s Game 1 win.Four of San Miguel's players scored in double digits. Fajardo had 31 points, Cabagnot and Lassiter had 27 and 21 markers, respectively. Santos had 19 markers.But this went down the drain after their fourth-quarter collapse.San Miguel coach Leo Austria was frustrated by their loss. "We led by 20 points and we end up losing the game, it's very disappointing and frustrating," he said. "I wasn't able to react Womens Scott Niedermayer Jersey and it's my fault."But he said the series has just started."The good thing it's a championship. They have to beat us 4 times before they will be declared as champions," added Austria.

West Indies qualify for World Cup 2019 after rains dash Scotland's hopes

West Indies qualified for the 2019 World Cup in England after rain played spoilsport and dashed Scotland's hopes of making it to the finals.After a break in play due to rainfall and then a wet outfield, the umpires decided to call off the match, thus, handing West Indies a five-run victory and a ticket to England. Limited Kenny Stabler Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #12 NFL Oakland Raiders 2017 Salute to Service They now have 8 points from five games and are the first to qualify for the World Cup from the qualifiers.Put into bat, West Indies were off to a horrific start after losing Chris Gayle on the first ball of the match. And it got worse when Shai Hope was removed in the third over for a six-ball duck. But, opener Evin Lewis and Marlon Samuels then steadied the ship for the Windies. Lewis and Samuels stitched a 121-run stand for the third Chris Baker Jersey wicket before Wheal removed Lewis for a well made 87-ball 66. West Indies needed another partnership but one wicket gave way to another and Samuels fell for 51 just 19 balls later -- forcing the two-time champions to be five down. They failed to put a partnership together since then and kept losing wickets at regular intervals and finally were bowled out for 198 from 48.4 overs.Safyaan Sharif and Wheal picked up three wickets each while Michael Leask had two to his name. Alasdair Evans and Richie Berrington grabbed Womens Nick Novak Jersey a wicket apiece. Coming in to chase, Scotland were handed the same fate by the West Indies bowlers. They lost both their openers inside the first four overs and could never recover. Michael Jones was the next man to go and Scotland were tottering at 25/3 from 6.1 overs. Calum MacLeod and Richie Berrington then weathered the storm and put on a 42-run stand but it was broken just when it was looking to get dangerous by Ashley Nurse. MacLeod hit one straight back at Nurse to hand them a way back into the game. Berrington and George Munsey however, were quick to cut out the danger and stitched another solid stand for the fourth-wicket. But Berrington fell for 33 and Scotland were five down with 93 runs to win.The incoming Michael Leask settled in well with Munsey and were ticking the scoredcard along well until rain lashed out at Harare. After a brief break, the game started to lose overs and according to DLS method Scotland were Ben McLemore Jersey five runs behind the target at that point. Hopes of a game were still there but the rain got heavier and the match was abandoned, thus, crushing Scotland's hopes of making it to the final. Zimbabwe and UAE play each other next and that will be followed by a match between Ireland and Afghanistan. All three sides barring UAE have a chance of making it to the final. cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseyswholesale jerseys

Adamson fans Final 4 bid, sends NU to 3rd straight loss

Adamson University bolstered its Final 4 bid in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament by overwhelming National University (NU) in four sets on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Men's Majestic San Diego Padres #1 Ozzie Smith Replica White Home Cool Base MLB JerseyThe Lady Falcons recovered quickly from an error-strewn third set to bring Womens Terrell Suggs Jersey down the Lady Bulldogs, 25-19, 25-15, 18-25, 25-13, and improve their record to 5-5 with just four games left in their schedule. As it stands, the Lady Falcons are now just a game behind NU and idle Far Eastern University (FEU), who both have 6-4 slates, for the last spot in Final 4. The win also gave them a measure of revenge against the Lady Bulldogs, who beat them in four sets in their season-opener. "We knew how important this match was for us," said Adamson coach Airess Padda. "Every game from here on out, we're playing to get to the Final 4.""It's survival now, so you gotta play every game balls out. I'm really proud of our team today," she added. Three players scored in double-digits for Adamson, with skipper Jema Galanza tallying 16 points, Joy Dacoron firing 13, and Mylene Paat adding 11 points. The Lady Falcons also got a whopping 39 free points off NU's unforced errors. Adamson cruised to a comfortable two-set lead, using pinpoint serving to get the Lady Bulldogs off-kilter. But they succumbed to their old, bad habits in the third set, which saw them commit 13 unforced errors. A brutal stretch which saw them commit five straight miscues – three of which were made by Eli Soyud – allowed NU to take control, 18-14. But they recovered in the fourth frame, with virtually every player contributing Jake Butt Youth jersey in scoring. NU, meanwhile, fell apart and committed a bevy of attack errors that doomed their cause. "They (NU) had trouble with their first ball," said Paddda. "If you were to define us, we're not a strong serving team but we focused on consistent serves. We knew if they couldn't get a good pass, that eliminates Jaja (Santiago) and (Risa) Sato." Santiago was the lone NU player in double-digits, scoring 21 points on 17 kills, two blocks, and two aces. Remarkably, the NU captain also had 11 digs in the game. But the Lady Bulldogs' error-prone ways cost them, as did the struggle of their wing players. Once more, their open hitters – Roma Doromal, Audrey Paran, and Aiko Urdas – failed to provide ample support for Santiago. This was NU's third loss in a row. The Lady Bulldogs, once the No. 1 team in the league, have yet to win in the second round. wholesale jerseyswholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys

NFL VP Troy Vincent confirms changes to NFL catch rule

The NFL's competition committee is expected to propose a new catch rule that would eliminate the "going to the ground" distinction in addition to reinforcing a high standard for overturning calls via replay, league executive vice president Troy Vincent confirmed Tuesday to the Washington Post. Men's Adidas Sacramento Kings #15 DeMarcus Cousins Authentic Purple Road NBA JerseyESPN previewed the changes on March 8, explaining the committee's options, along with the role that a replay update would play in reimagining the controversial rule. New York Giants owner John Mara told ESPN in February that the competition committee agreed that a handful of highly debated rulings -- including incompletions for Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson in 2010 and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant in 2014 -- should be called completions moving forward. The requirements for a catch, under Keanu Neal Jersey the committee's likely proposal, will include the receiver controlling the ball and establishing himself in bounds. There will also be instruction for officials Tony Twist Jersey to define a time element, but it will apply both to receivers who are standing and those who are falling during the process of the catch. Vincent did not specify that element with the Post and did not immediately to a request from ESPN. But former NFL officiating chief Dean Blandino told ESPN recently that it would have to define an act common to the game, such as taking a certain number of steps, in order Cassius Marsh Authentic Jersey for officials to call the play consistently. Some of the problems with the catch rule in 2017 revolved around an inconsistent interpretation of a long-held standard to overturn mistakes that were "clear and obvious," according to the wording in the 2017 NFL rulebook. In the March 8 story, ESPN analyst Bill Polian -- a former competition committee chairman -- suggested the phrasing would be strengthened to "indisputable visual evidence." That change, confirmed by Vincent to the Post, would remind the NFL's centralized game-day officiating department that the league doesn't want catches overturned because of slight movement of the ball. Questions about the catch rule have circulated for years, and the league has made several attempts to tweak it in recent years. The urgency increased this offseason, however, after commissioner Roger Goodell said in January that he wanted it changed. The committee has spent the past two days working through rule proposals to present to owners when they gather next week in Orlando, Florida. Other topics include the possibility of a targeting rule and changing pass interference to a 15-yard penalty. wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys free shipping cheap nfl jerseys

Man Utd team-mate can be 'one of the best in the world'

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw can be "one of the best in the world", says team-mate Ashley Young.Shaw, 22, was publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho after he was substituted during Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton. Youth Ozzie Smith Authentic White Majestic Jersey: MLB San Diego Padres #1 Home Cool BaseYoung, 32, has been's first-choice left-back for much of the season and - unlike Shaw - was named in the England squad for their friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy.Shaw, who joined United from Southampton for £27m in 2014, is under contract until June 2019 but could leave Old Trafford this summer. Mourinho has criticised Shaw repeatedly in the past, and publicly questioned the defender's approach to training and his commitment to the club last April.Shaw, who has seven international caps, has not played for England since March 2017. "I want to see Luke do well," said Young. "He just has to get his head down and work."I feel he can be one of the best in the world."Mourinho has been the subject of criticism himself, with former Arsenal striker Ian Wright telling BBC Radio 5 live he "would not want to play for Mourinho Craig Smith Authentic Jersey right now". United are second in the Premier League and in the FA Cup semi-finals, but went out of the Champions League last week, and former Chelsea forward Chris Sutton believes Mourinho looks "outdated".But the 55-year-old looks to have the backing of his players, with Young saying his team-mates know where they stand. "The manager has been successful at every club he's been at," he said."I don't think he would have been that successful if he didn't know how to handle players."We know as players we go out onto the training pitch and work hard, but Authentic Olivier Vernon Jersey when you can, he has a laugh and joke, so he's got both sides to him and that's the best way for a manager to be." Young was named in England squad ahead of team-mate Shaw after impressing in recent United games, including the 2-1 victory over Liverpool earlier this month for which Gareth Southgate was in attendance. On Monday, United triggered a one-year extension clause in Young's contract, which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2019.His last international appearance came in last November's 0-0 draw with Brazil at Wembley, after a four-year absence from the squad. He missed out on the 2014 World Cup and is keen to be involved when Southgate announces his team for this summer's tournament in Russia."I've always wanted to represent my country, it's an honour to do so, and whenever I get that chance, I'll keep doing it," said Young. "I've got to play well at United to get that recognition, and now I've had that in this call-up, I've got to impress."I've got to show the manager I should Authentic Pharoh Cooper Jersey get a place in the squad.",108258

Did Shakib Al Hasan smash Bangladesh dressing room door?

angladesh captian Shakib Al Hasan had smashed the dressing room door during the 6th T20I against Sri Lanka, if reports are to be believed. Women's Carolina Hurricanes #74 Jaccob Slavin Reebok White Away Premier NHL JerseyThe virtual semi-final of the Nidahas Trophy last week saw Bangladesh and Sri Lanka players pushing and shoving each other on the field in the final over while Shakib and the rest of his team members shouted at the officials from the boundary line which led to the match getting disrupted for sometime in the final over. Limited Men's Jeremiah George Royal Blue Jersey: NFL Nike Indianapolis Colts #59 Tank Top SuitAnd reports in the media claim that it was Shakib who had broken the glass door in the Bangladeshi dressing room in a fit of rage. Match referee Chris Broad saw the CCTV footage but it was inconclusive which is when he questioned the caterers and eye witnesses who Womens Stephen Strasburg Jersey revealed it was Shakib who broke the door as he forcefully pushed it open. The drama unfolded when Bangladesh were chasing 160 in a do-or-die match for both sides and needed 12 runs from the last over. That's when Isuru Udana bowled a couple of head-high bouncers, the second of which was called a no-ball by the square leg umpire before he changed Jaromir Jagr Womens Jersey his decision and Shakib lost his cool and came out on the boundary line to protest. He even gestured the batsmen - Mahmudullah and Rubel Hossain - to walk off the field and forfeit the match, which would have disqualified them from the tri-series and Sri Lanka would have sealed their place in the Better sense finally prevailed after the Bangladesh support staff, led by coach Courtney Walsh, asked the players to resume the match while Shakib was told to return to the dressing room which is when he repotedly smashed the glass door. Bangladesh eventually won the match and mocked the Sri Lankan team through their 'Naagin dance' celebrations which left a bad taste in the mouth of the cricket fans and viewers.Shakib Al Hasan and Nurul Hasan have each been fined 25 per cent of their match fees and given one demerit point following Bangladesh's victory over Sri Lanka. Shakib apologised in the post-match presentation but that Authentic Red Auerbach Jersey did didn't stop the ICC match referee Chris Broad from slapping a 25% fine on the all-rounder and also gave him one demerit point along with Nurul Hasan while the Bangladesh Cricket Board offered to pay for the damages. "Emotions take over, I need to be careful as a leader of a team, I will be careful next time," Shakib said after the game.,104272

A victory will also serve as a follow-up to Adamson's title conquest in baseball last Friday, as the Soaring Falcons ended an eight-year title drought at the expense of De La Salle University. Adamson is also the last team to have swept Authentic Rob Kelley Jersey the softball and baseball titles, winning it all in the 2008-09 Evgeni Malkin Authentic Jerseyseason.

"Sa pagkakapanalo John Randle Youth jersey namin, mag-iiba ang mentality ng mga bata," said Santiago, the architect of Adamson's dominant run in UAAP softball. UST last ruled UAAP softball in the 2009-10 season, when Aiza dela Torre led them to their first-ever title. Coach Sandy Barredo is hoping to add another crown to their collection this year. "UST is still a tough team. Nasa kanila ang No. 1 pitcher in the Philippines," said Santiago, referring to Ann Antolihao. "Kailangang mag-tama kami uli. Second, huwag bibitaw ang mga bata. Walang pahinga." The Lady Falcons have a bevy of batters that will pose problems for Antolihao if everyone clicked in this ultimate game.
