ls-bound Canterbury
Brazil coach Rogerio Micale took issue with fan criticism of Neymar and the struggles the mens team have been having since Olympic soccer got underway.?Neymar was taunted by fans chanting Marta! in a 0-0 draw against Iraq on Sunday at Mane Garrincha Stadium in Brasilia. Brazil also played to a scoreless draw with South Africa in the opener and next face Denmark on Wednesday.Despite having 77 percent of possession in the game and 20 shots at goal, the Selecao trio of Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Barbosa failed to find the back of the net.Brazil now sit in second place behind Denmark with two points, ahead of Iraq and South Africa with one game to go. They are trying on home soil to win their first Olympic medal.Micale said despite the teasing from the fans, the country needed to get behind Neymar -- and the womens side.If we do not analyze this [our situation] calmly... we didnt have a transition of stars, if we dont respect them, soon they will no longer want to be with us, Micale told ESPN in Brazil.Neymar wanted to be at the Olympics, and Ill repeat myself: He shouldered a responsibility and is questioned too much for someone who is 24. These are facts to be reflected on.He also said the comparisons with Brazils other No. 10?were unwarranted.Marta is how old? 31 ... he said.We can say that Marta is a sensational player, she has all our recognition, but Neymar has my recognition as the future best player in the world, which he will be, and we need to respect Neymar.Micale also took issue with the recent media commentary regarding Neymars party lifestyle.He is young. I know that he has his moments that we do not agree with, but at his age, would we not do the same things, having what he has? Micale said. Andrew MacDonald Flyers Jersey. The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. Vincent Lecavalier Flyers Jersey. In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Bobby Clarke Flyers Jersey. Cote was eligible to become a free agent Feb. 15. Cote helped running back Jon Cornish run for a league-high 1,813 rushing yards en route to being named the leagues most outstanding player. Ron Hextall Flyers Jersey. Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. It was the loss South Sydney had to have.Five weeks ago, after their 54-4 shellacking at the hands of Canberra - the clubs worst loss in 10 years - Rabbitohs bosses hauled the guillotine out of the shed at Redfern Oval and gave it a sharpen.Heads threatened to roll unless they could find an immediate response and, to coach Michael Maguires credit, he did just that.Assistant coaches Kurt Wrigley and Wayne Collins were told to move on but Maguire survived and will oversee the side in 2017.And now, he says the past month could prove a turning point for his side.Asked if his team should be playing finals football, Maguire said: I think all the teams that are above us deserve exactly what theyve got.Youve got to do it week in and week out to get in those positions and, unfortunately for us, we werent able to show that throughout the season. But we did in this last month.Weve had the highs and the joys but weve been through a tough season.I stated this a month ago, but it will be the making of us if we choose to.ddddddddddddnd after missing the finals for the first time in Maguires tenure, the Rabbits need to turn a corner.Their four wins to end the season, including Friday nights 28-10 drubbing of finals-bound Canterbury, will have the cardinal and myrtle diehards asking where was that all year?.The club has been far from settled all season - Dylan Walker was let go after the prescription drug scandal, recidivist offenders Paul Carter and Kirisome Auvaa were sacked after failing to heed warnings about their behaviour, while Luke Keary is bound for the Sydney Roosters following his pre-season bust-up with co-owner Russell Crowe.It was just an opportunity that we missed, skipper Greg Inglis said when asked to reflect on 2016.Thats for sure. Well sit back and reflect on what it takes to win a footy match in this competition each and every week.
