|Spurs secure Jersey top spot after Son Heung-min
When the time comes to pull the names out of the hat at Uefa headquarters next month, none of the second-placed teams will want to draw Tottenham Hotspur. There is no longer evidence of any inferiority complex when they rub shoulders with Europe’s elite and they will fancy themselves against anyone after winning Group H – at the expense of the mighty Real Madrid, no less – with a game to spare after this mature, resilient victory away to Borussia Dortmund.
Their reward is a relaxing evening when they host Apoel Nicosia at Wembley next month and, more importantly, playing the second leg of their last-16 tie at home. Behind to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s fine goal, Tottenham rallied in the second half to end Dortmund’s slim hopes of snatching second from Madrid, with Harry Kane scoring his sixth goal in five games, Son Heung-min applying a super finishing touch and Dele Alli producing an unselfish display. For Dortmund, exiting the Champions League was tough to take. Peter Bosz’s beleaguered side visit Madrid, who destroyed Apoel, in their final match and are not even sure of finishing third, but they could not complain. Tottenham were superior.“It was difficult because Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund and Apoel are always difficult but we try to enjoy and be competitive and try to win, that was the idea in every single game,” said Mauricio Pochettino afterwards. “I am happy for the result, to be top of the table, first, but we’re looking forward to playing the next game.”
As Tottenham set off in pursuit of the result that would increase their chances of a favourable draw in the last 16, a year since defeat in Monaco brought a premature end to their interest in this competition for another campaign, it was worth taking a moment to reflect on the brutal manner in which Dortmund devoured them in the Europa League two seasons ago. Tottenham have come a long way since those days, back Ethan Pocic Jersey when they seemed to shrink in the company of the silkiest continental sides, and securing their progress from this most daunting of groups with that enchanting victory over Madrid three weeks ago meant that they began with a sense of freedom at one of European football’s most iconic venues.
However it was also a mark of Tottenham’s tougher mentality that it was difficult to detect any weaknesses in their line-up, three days after the bruising experience of losing the north London derby. Mauricio Pochettino was unwilling to accept any loss of momentum, even though the stakes were lower than might have been anticipated when the groups were drawn, while he knew that Dortmund were not to be taken lightly despite the mess the Germans have made of their qualification attempts.
Two draws with Apoel meant that Dortmund’s hopes of progression were already hanging by a thread by the time news filtered through that Madrid were Greg Zuerlein Authentic Jersey hammering the lowly Cypriots, and perhaps that explained the muted celebrations Martin St. Louis Jersey that greeted Aubameyang’s glorious opener after http://www.officialcoloradoavalanche.com/Adidas-Adam-Foote-Jersey 30 minutes.
When they do take the field, England can draw confidence from the fact they are the more settled side of the two after an Australian selection that has certainly set tongues wagging in both hemispheres through the changes at opener, No6 and wicketkeeper.
Cameron Bancroft is a player I tipped for big things in these pages two years ago and with 442 runs from three Sheffield Shield matches this season, http://www.coltsfootballofficialproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ADAM_VINATIERI_JERSEY.html he’s done exactly what the selectors have asked for by making a compelling case. An organised, correct right-hander with a superb work ethic and a quiet confidence, I wouldn’t question Bancroft’s place in the squad.

|Captain brushes Jersey aside ‘bizarre’ claims tourists
Joe Root has offered a pointed reminder to Wes Schweitzer Jersey Australia’s emboldened players that for all their talk of reopening psychological scars before Thursday’s first Test at the Gabba, it is England who have been the dominant force during recent Ashes encounters.
The buildup to the opener in Brisbane has been awash with macho soundbites emanating chiefly from the home side, who have spoken of targeting players, unleashing bouncers and waging war – all with the whitewash of 2013-14 referenced heavily throughout.
But with the time for such chatter now coming to an end, a slightly bemused Root maintained England remain calm and focused as they look to defend the urn they won in 2015 and show that, even with Ben Stokes not on the tour, Australia can be conquered at home.
“You hear a lot about these scars but [the whitewash] was a series which happened four years ago and we’ve won four of the last five Ashes,” Root said. “We’ve got a lot of guys who have very fond memories of 2015. I don’t know whether they are just trying to brush that under the carpet but for me it’s completely irrelevant what happened four years ago.”
Asked if Steve Smith’s side were perhaps trying to http://www.officialdodgersteamshop.com/Chase_Utley_Jersey convince themselves more than anything, given they were toppled by South Africa at home last year and sit No5 in the rankings to England’s No3, Root admitted it was possible, while noting that only three of the current squad were part of the 2013-14 team.
It was Nathan Lyon, Australia’s off-spinner then and now, who chimed up at the start of the week by claiming England were scared of Mitchell Johnson four years ago and though the left-arm quick has now retired, a repeat could be inflicted by the similarly pacy Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. Careers, Lyon said, could once again be ended.
Root, who played grade cricket with Lyon in Adelaide in 2010-11, while England were beating Australia 3-1 that southern summer, responded: “It is a bit bizarre. I think you can sort of see through it a little as well. The more guys talk, the more they put pressure on themselves.”
Nevertheless, Root conceded the Gabba will be intimidating for the six members of his expected side who have yet to play Test cricket in Australia, given the home side’s 28-match unbeaten record there. The away support will be more dispersed among the 40,000-strong crowd too. The key, he said, is to feed off the nerves and be excited by the challenge.
Though Root stopped short of naming his team, the return to fitness of Jake Ball after an ankle sprain means it seems to be settled. One small tweak being considered is for Moeen Ali to bat at No6 ahead of Jonny Bairstow, whose 99 against South Africa at Old Trafford in the summer showed his prowess at shepherding the tail.
Australia have one doubt after David Warner could barely bat in practice on Tuesday owing to a cricked neck suffered when taking a high catch on the outfield. The opener still kept to http://www.packersauthenticofficialstore.com/WOMENS-RAY-NITSCHKE-JERSEY.html his pre-arranged media appearance and along with being optimistic about his own fitness, offered some thoughts on the well-documented absence Womens Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey of Stokes.

|add to favorites||Australia’s pacemen jersey will target Joe Root||No||
|Australia’s pacemen will target Joe Root in the opening Ashes Test in an attempt to bring back memories of the bruising series whitewash four years ago when England’s batsmen were “scared” of Mitchell Johnson, according to Nathan Lyon.
Lyon on Monday celebrated his 30th birthday with a series of remarkable and seemingly pre-planned potshots at the tourists before the first Test begins at the Gabba on Thursday, saying England were frightened from No1 to No11 of Johnson’s barrage in 2013 and claiming how “I was at leg slip and I nearly had to push a couple of the guys back towards the stumps”.
He also stated that Australia again hope to end careers, just as they did on the 2013‑14 tour, and talked about that victory as one of his “fondest series”, adding “seeing Mitchell Johnson scare all the Erik Johnson Authentic Jersey Poms was unbelievable”.
Root, who played club cricket in Adelaide with Lyon before either had graduated to the international game, will be watched particularly closely by Australia after he endured a tough first Ashes tour four years ago.
“Root got dropped last time [in Sydney] when he was here, so it’d be good to get him dropped again, wouldn’t it?” Lyon added. “If we can start by opening up that crack, it’s pretty crucial. There’s a lot of scars for the English guys, especially coming over here, especially when we have two guys bowling 150kph, not just one now.
“I don’t want Joe to go out there and say: ‘Mate, there you go, here’s a hundred today.’ I want to take his wicket. I want to put him under pressure. Test-match cricket is about being resilient and, if you can bounce back from your lows, you will have some highs.”
Curiously the other player Lyon took particularly aggressive aim at was Matt Prior, the former England wicketkeeper who was dropped after the third Test on the last tour and played only four more to end what had hitherto been a superb career containing three Ashes series wins.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling,” said Lyon, “knowing that they are broken. Stephen Anderson Jersey Leading into Perth we knew that they were broken, we knew Matt Prior wanted to fly home before the game started and he was one of the senior players.”
Prior, http://www.authenticnikeredskinshop.com/jonathan-allen-jersey-for-sale-c-67.html who retired in the summer of 2015, was quick to retort to the barbs. “That’s absolutely http://www.officialauthenticseahawksshop.com/Nike-Jarran-Reed-Jersey.html laughable. If that was the case and I was scared, why didn’t I go home then? I have no idea where this has come from. Of all the things he could have come up with? That’s completely ridiculous and all I can do is laugh. It is wholeheartedly untrue.”
