Alvaro Morata will fill Diego Costa void for Chelsea
Diego Costa's departure will have no lasting impact on Chelsea's title ambitions because in Alvaro Morata they Authentic Andre Johnson Womens Jersey have signed the perfect striker to fill his boots, the club's former frontman Andriy Shevchenko said on Friday. Premier League champions Chelsea agreed to sell Spain international Costa back to Atletico Madrid on Thursday -- ending a standoff between the 28-year-old and the club for whom he was top scorer in his three seasons at Stamford Bridge. Morata signed from Real Madrid in July for a reported fee of 58 million pounds ($78.45 million) and has quickly http://www.texansonlineofficialstore.com/Arian-Foster-Jerseypicked up the pace of English football, even if his style is less combative than Costa's. The 24-year-old has scored three league goals already and Shevchenko, who never replicated his superb goalscoring record for AC Milan in three subsequent years at Chelsea, believes there is much more to come from the Spaniard. "They have found a very good player in Morata," Shevchenko told reporters at the Best FIFA Football Award ceremony in London on Friday when Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar were the three players shortlisted. "He has adapted very well. They are two very different players. Costa wasn't happy so you couldn't keep him. You have to replace him and Brandon Fusco Authentic Jersey I think the club were very patient in the market and found the right player that they were looking for." While Costa is a bulldozing centre forward never slow to go to war with central defenders, Morata goes about his business in a more refined manner, relying on stealthy movement and an ability to find space in the opposition penalty area. A quiet game against Arsenal in the 0-0 draw last weekend led to suggestions that Morata lacked the physical presence required for the weekly Premier League combat. Shevchenko disagrees with that assessment. "I've been surprised that Morata has found the right chemistry with his team mates so quickly," he said. "Of course he knows Pedro very well and (Eden) Hazard's type of game suits him very well. Morata is very good in the box and scores a lot of goals with his head. "Chelsea create so many chances around the box, always crosses coming in from left and right and he has been clinical so far and this is a good sign for him to be successful." Shevchenko, who is now focussed on trying to lead Ukraine to the World Cup finals as coach, acknowledged that Costa http://www.49ersofficialsproshop.com/Blaine_Gabbert_Jersey_Cheapwould be missed, but said a move back to Madrid was right for him. "I think if the motivation of the player is to leave the club, it would have been unfair for the club to keep him," the 40-year-old who scored more than 100 goals for Milan, said. "He did a great job for the club. He won two titles and was happy to be here. But he felt it was the right decision to leave the club so they were right to let him go." Morata will be in action at Stoke City on Saturday.
At this point in Donaire's career, spectacular wins are a must
Team Philippines hiked its total to 19 gold medals following superb performances by thrower Cendy Asusano, swimmer Ernie Gawilan and the Caleb Sturgis Womens Jersey national chess team on the penultimate day of the ASEAN Para Games in Kuala Lumpur.Games first-timer Asusano registered 5.50 meters to seize the shotput gold in F54 on Friday, her third title after winning the javelin throw Monday and discuss throw Thursday.According to Paralympic.org, F54 athletes have "full power and movements in their arms, but no power in their abdominal muscles and typically no sitting balance. Thus, the 27-year-old Donsol, Sorsogon native joined the elite group of Filipino triple-gold medalists in the competition, alongside teenage sprint phenom Cielo Honasan. Asusano’s boyfriend, Juanito Mingarine, meanwhile, helped the wheelchair-basketball squad to the bronze medal following its 49-41 victory over Myanmar at Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.Gawilan swam to a gold-medal finish in the 200-meter individual medley for SM8 in 2:50.13, ahead of Malaysia and Vietnam.According to New South Wales http://www.nikeeaglesjerseysshop.com/carson-wentz-jersey-for-sale-c-53.html swimming website, an SM8 classification includes "swimmers with full use of their arms and trunk with some leg function; limb loss of 2 limbs; swimmerswith the use of one arm only." It was Gawilan’s second mint on top of a silver and a bronze. The Philippine chess team spearheaded by Sander Severino won in the team rapid event by amassing 9.5 points, a point ahead of Indonesia’s Maksum Firdaus, Azhar Panjaitan and Sutikno.Severino joined the company of Honasan and Asusano as he captured his third gold.With a day to go, the Philippines now has 19 golds, which eclipsed the 16 mints the country won in Singapore.Indonesia has virtually clinched the overall title with a current haul of 96 gold, 55 silversand 39 bronze medals, while host Logan Couture Youth Jersey Malaysia is at No. 2 with a 78-73-61 (gold-silver-bronze) mark. It’s good that Nonito Donaire Jr. is fighting again this weekend against Ruben Garcia Hernandez of Mexico.But for boxing analyst Dennis Principe, it would be better for “the Filipino Flash” if he could set himself up against a named opponent who can guarantee his return to world-title contention.“Iyong kalaban niya this weekend is not a household name,” Principe said in an interview with ABS-CBN News on Friday.“It's more of an activity. He should have fought a former world champion, iyong may pangalan. If he’s fighting a nobody, then he's just maintaining public awareness.”Nonito Donaire: I still have what it takes to be world champ This, however, doesn’t mean Donaire, 34, should go carefree against Hernandez, who has a record of 22-2. Principe said it's imperative that Donaire scores a knockout to show he still has the same old magic that made him the second most popular Filipino boxer after Manny Pacquiao.“That's the only way to make people consider him a world-title hopeful. Time is not on his side. To score a decision would be inconsequential http://www.authenticsanjosesharks.com/authentic-justin-braun-jersey para kay Donaire,” Principe said.The last time Donaire fought was last November, when he lost his world junior-featherweight title via decision to Jessie Magdaleno. After failing to get the rematch he wanted, Donaire sought a release from his promotional contract with Top Rank Inc. and signed with Ringstar Sports, which plans to feature him in a world featherweight title bout in 2018.Principe said the only way for Donaire to make a quick return to the top is to start knocking out opponents again. It doesn’t necessarily have to be against world champions, but at least recognizable foes.“If he scores a knockout this weekend, then good. But he has to be in a marquee fight after nito because time is not on his side.”

India are drawn in Group A alongside USA, Colombia and Ghana, and will face USA on October 6, followed by Colombia and Ghana on October 9 and October 12 respectively at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi. "We believe that we are prepared for the FIFA U-17 World Cup," head coach Luis Norton de Matos said. "We have worked hard and made progress, but at the same time we go directly to a high level competition against http://www.49ersofficialsproshop.com/Brian_Hoyer_Jersey_Cheapsome of the best teams in the world. "We will fight to win each match even if there is only five percent chance of winning. We will not give up and nothing is impossible in football. Matos showed belief in the young Indian side and said that they Gerrit Cole Womens Jersey have plans to announce their arrival on the world stage. "We plan to show the world that we are on the same page as them", Matos added. In an effort to field a strong team for the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) provided exposure tours for the India U-17s wherein the Indian Colts faced Macedonia, Serbia and Benfica amongst other teams. The Indian Colts had also participated in a Four-Nation Tournament in Mexico where they lost against Mexico and Colombia, but held Chile to a 1-1 draw with ten-men. "Against Chile and Macedonia, we registered good http://www.officialpiratesproshop.com/Gregory_Polanco_Jerseyresults but the FIFA U-17 World Cup will be a competition and competitions are different from friendly matches", Matos expressed.

World-title fight featuring Pinoy vs.
Having two Filipino boxers battle for a world title is a rare occurrence in Philippine boxing. It is bound to happen again next year when Filipino upstart Jonas Sultan Brian Cushing Womens Jersey challenges Jerwin Ancajas for the world junior bantamweight title. According to veteran fight analyst Ed Tolentino, there have only been two all-Filipino world-title bouts in history. The first was when Pancho Villa defeated Clever Sencio to successfully defend the world flyweight belt in 1925. The second time was when http://www.texansonlineofficialstore.com/Braxton-Miller-Jersey Small Montana lost to Little Dado in a world flyweight championship bout in 1938. READ: Jonas Sultan outpoints ex-champ Casimero in 'Pinoy Pride 42' Tolentino doesn’t favor seeing two Filipinos competing for a world title. “It is unfortunate that two Pinoys are looking to eliminate each other,” he said. “On the surface, it’s bad because we don’t have that many prospects and now they are trying to eliminate each other. If we are like Mexico or the US, where prospects abound, it will not be an issue.” The Philippines only has three reigning champions: Ancajas, Milan Melindo (junior flyweight) and Anthony Steen Youth Jersey Donnie Nietes (flyweight). “That is why I think this is not the right time for Pinoy pugs to be battling each other,” Tolentino said. One way to avoid such bouts is to let the Filipino boxers campaign in other sanctioning bodies. “There are still the WBA, WBC and WBO to choose from. They can campaign there, take one of the titles,” Tolentino said. “If it’s really inevitable, they should figure in a unification fight. I prefer two Pinoy champs in a unification battle.” Sultan secured the right to battle Ancajas for the world junior bantamweight crown when he pulled off a unanimous http://www.dolphinsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Brandon-Doughty-Jersey decision win over Johnriel Casimero in their title eliminator over the weekend. Ancajas's camp welcomed the development and doesn't mind a Pinoy-vs.-Pinoy clash. “OK lang na may makaharap na Pilipino kasi kahit sinong manalo sa Pilipinas pa rin ang belt,” Ancajas' coach, Joven Jimenez, said. ALA Boxing head coach Edito Villamor is just as excited to pit Sultan against Ancajas. Villamor said they will have to thoroughly prepare "Zorro" against a high-caliber fighter such as Ancajas. "Marami pa siyang kulang kaya kailangang mag-prepare para sa world title fight,” Villamor said.

Shinji Okazaki goals knock Liverpool out of League Cup
Leicester City grabbed second-half goals through Shinji Okazaki and record signing Islam Slimani to earn a 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the Carl Hagelin Womens Jersey League Cup third round on Tuesday. A night of wholesale team changes for the 11 Premier League sides in action produced one notable upset with top flight Stoke City losing 2-0 at second-tier Bristol City. Former England manager Roy Hodgson enjoyed his first victory in charge of Crystal http://www.officialpittsburghpenguins.com/Adidas-Chris-Kunitz-Jersey Palace as the Premier League's bottom club defeated Huddersfield Town 1-0 at Selhurst Park. Tottenham Hotspur were frustrated for 65 minutes at Wembley by second-tier Barnsley before Dele Alli secured a 1-0 win and a first domestic victory of the season at their temporary home. West Ham United beat second-tier Bolton Wanderers 3-0 at the London Stadium while Swansea City dispatched Reading 2-0. Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was given his first start by manager Juergen Klopp following his move from Arsenal, while Phillipe Coutinho was Authentic Ben Hutton Womens Jersey also in the lineup at the King Power Stadium where the visitors dominated play before the interval. Coutinho was instrumental in eight-times League cup winners Liverpool's superiority but he went off at halftime with the score still level and after the break Liverpool paid dearly for failing to take their chances. Klopp's side did not deal with a corner in the 65th minute and Okazaki's deflected shot crept inside the post. Algerian Slimani scored the home side's second goal with a stunning left-foot shot into the top corner in the 78th. "We led a charmed life in the first half and Liverpool could have been out of sight," Leicester manager http://www.officialvancouvercanucks.com/Adidas-Alexander-Edler-Jersey Craig Shakespeare said. "To get the first goal was massively important." The teams meet again at the weekend in the Premier League.

Mbala returns as La Salle takes on Adamson
Reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala will make his highly anticipated return as De La Salle University takes on Authentic Cam Neely Jersey Womens Jersey Adamson University in the UAAP Season 80 men's basketball tournament on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena. Mbala missed the defending champions' first two games of the season because of his stint in the 2017 Afro Basket for Cameroon, where he helped his team advance to the quarterfinals. "Big Ben" averaged 21.8 points and 9.3 rebounds in the tournament, and had a 32-point, 10-rebound performance against Nigeria in the quarterfinals. "It was a great learning experience, especially getting to play against bigger and mature players," said Mbala, who returned to the Philippines http://www.officialbostonbruins.com/Adidas-Brandon-Carlo-Jersey late Sunday evening. Mbala's return should make an already powerful La Salle team even more potent. Despite playing without their MVP, the Green Archers won their first two games of the season, including a highly entertaining 115-109 shootout against National University (NU) on Saturday. La Salle coach Aldin Ayo expects Mbala to integrate seamlessly with his teammates, even as he mulls the possibility of playing his big man in a different position. "We're on this level, but when Ben arrives, aangat na lang kami na kasama siya," Ayo said. "Wala na kaming gagawin Andreas Martinsen Youth Jersey masyadong adjustments, because hindi kami nag-adjust talaga doon sa pagkawala niya. Gusto namin na pagbalik niya, diretso kaagad. Andar kaagad." "When Ben comes in, he can play the 5, 4, 3, or he can even play the 2 depende sa scheme," he added. "We'll find a way na ipasok si Ben, kung paano siya mailalagay sa spot na magiging komportable siya." La Salle takes on an Adamson (1-1) team that is brimming with confidence following an 88-81 win over University of Santo Tomas (UST), also last Saturday. A win by the Green Archers will put them in a tie for first place along with archrival Ateneo de Manila University. Game time is at 4 p.m. In the first game of the double-header, the NU Bulldogs (1-1) try will to bounce back against a still winless UST squad (0-2) at 2:00 p.m. NU coach Jamike Jarin is not underestimating the Growling Tigers despite their record, especially with big man Steve http://www.officialcoloradoavalanche.com/Adidas-Ben-Smith-Jersey Akomo living up to the hype. "They're good," said Jarin of UST. "They've got Akomo, they've got a good rebounder in (Jeepy) Faundo, and they've got a leader in Marvin Lee. It's going to be really interesting."

Gratz, who wrestled and played baseball in high school, started following the game of softball when his sister http://www.authenticbostonredsox.com/Babe-Ruth-Jerseystarted playing. “There’s a lot of similarities with baseball but it’s so different,” he said. “Softball is a much quicker and more intense version of that game.”
