Defenceman Robyn Regehr was placed

Following the fairytale story of Canadas Womens Olympic team winning bronze at London 2012, the next wave of female Canadian players took to the international stage at the FIFA U20 Womens World Cup in Japan. NFL Jerseys China . After opening the tournament with a comprehensive 6-0 victory over Argentina, Canada lost consecutive 2-1 games to Norway and North Korea, sending the Canadians home from the tournament after finishing third in their group. While most supporters are prone to knee jerk reactions following tournaments - carried away with success or despondent over unfulfilled expectations - it is important to take an objective look at both the positives and the negatives.  Positives Gone are the days of hit and hope football. There was a time when Canadas approach in the womens game was very much about playing the percentages. Get the ball forward as quickly as possible, force the opponent to make an error in their own half of the field, and then use our superior athletic ability and physicality to score goals. It wasnt pretty, but during the time when the womens game was in its infancy, it was reasonably effective. The womens game has evolved considerably in recent years, and we have had to evolve with it. Technical proficiency and tactical awareness are now the standards for the worlds best, and while we are still a long way behind some countries, at least we are trying to play the game the right way. Canadas players, by and large, are better technically than their counterparts were a decade ago. Many of the players who finished runners-up to the United States at the 2002 FIFA Womens U19 World Cup, went on to win a bronze medal at the Olympics just a few weeks ago. If we can stay on track, focusing on developing the technical proficiency of our players along with their tactical understanding of the game, our never-say-die Canadian spirit will take us far in the womens game. There were some decent individual performances from this group of players, and a number of them look capable of making the step up to the full team - if not now, then certainly in a few years time. Sabrina DAngelo in goal, and Rachel Melhado and Shelina Zadorsky at the back, all performed admirably. Although both Melhado and Zadorsky were guilty of defensive errors that resulted in goals, they both showed they have the potential to move up to the senior team. Danica Wu, Adriana Leon and Jenna Richardson showed that they, too, have the potential to progress to the senior level. Their movement, athleticism and technical ability is very good, and will stand them in good stead as they look to advance to the next level. The key word, though, is potential. What those players do now, and how they develop in the years ahead, will dictate whether or not they will successfully make that step up. Negatives Whenever a Canadian team is eliminated from a tournament, critics tend to limit their analysis to the micro level. Did Player A perform the role that was expected of her? Did Player B make a mistake that led to a goal that eliminated the team? Did the coach make the right player selections, set up the team correctly, and utilize the correct tactical approach? While this type of analysis is important and essential in the short-term, it isnt going to help Canada improve its long-term fortunes at the international level. In order to do that, we need analysis at the macro level. Why do we continue to produce such a shallow pool of talent? Do our players who reach the international level do so because of our system of player development, or in spite of it? If our system of player development is not working (for the record, it isnt), how do we fix it so that we can be more competitive at the international level? These are big-picture questions that require in-depth analysis. In future blogs, I will be covering each of these topics separately, so that we can openly discuss the changes that need to be made for the betterment of Canadian soccer. Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping . - Defenceman Robyn Regehr was placed on injured reserve by the Los Angeles Kings on Friday with an upper-body injury. Cheap Jerseys . - Forget about the surprisingly small number in the win column.Patty Mills was a feel-good story on a team full of them last season in San Antonio. The Australian guard had a breakout year, rededicating himself to conditioning and flourishing in a Spurs system that relied upon him for offensive scoring punch off the bench. After averaging 10.2 points and helping the Spurs win the championship, Mills figured to cash in on the open market. But then it was revealed that he would be out for six months or more due to a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, and suddenly his future was uncertain. The injury did nothing to deter the Spurs, who re-signed him on Saturday. The team did not disclose the terms of the deal, but the San Antonio Express-News previously reported that it was a three-year contract. The 25-year-old Mills had trouble sticking in the NBA at the start of his career. He played in 74 games over two seasons with the Portlannd Trail Blazers and 16 more with the Spurs in 2011-12. NFL Jerseys China Cheap. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and his accomplished staff demanded that Mills get into better shape, and he took that to heart. He blossomed this season, playing in a career-high 81 games and averaging a career-high 18.9 minutes per game during the regular season. When starting point guard Tony Parker missed 14 games due to injury and maintenance, Mills was one of the key fill-ins that helped keep them motoring right along to an NBA-best 62 wins. In the last two games of the NBA Finals, Mills combined to score 31 points and hit 9 of 14 3-pointers to help the Spurs clinch the franchises fifth title. The Spurs also signed first-round draft pick Kyle Anderson to his rookie contract on Saturday. Anderson, the 30th overall pick, averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists for UCLA last season. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
