Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016

Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016, and what a battle it was.

Seattle Sounders have defeated Toronto FC with 5 goals over 4 in penalties after a scoreless play for 120 minutes in a frigid and extreme setting. Toronto fans would not believe how the group won the 2016 cup because they have given poor performances in the mid-part of August. When there was a coaching change until the playoffs, they have performed more eagerly and positively.

The group they have defeated in the Cup outplayed them for the most part of the soccer league. As a matter of fact, they have struggled a lot to make a perfect and amazing single shot. Nevertheless, they have given Toronto FC a challenging game because they have performed a resilient defence. With the help from Stefan Frei, the goal keeper, they have caused headaches to their opponents. Frei has given a fine work for a lunging and a one-handed save during overtime.

Even though they have performed behind their coaches’ expectations during the entire competition, they have prevailed against their strong opponents who only missed one penalty kick out of 6 chances. Unluckily, they missed two. That is why they have defeated Toronto FC with great resilience and determination. Though their performance appeared inferior, their fighting spirit and trust with each other are some of the reasons why they won.

The first part of the game became more physical. However, Toronto have dominated because they were also resolute to win their first MLS league championship. During the 15th minute of the game, Sebastian Giovinco, the star forward, effectively played the ball that has given Altidore the chance to assist Jonathan Osorio to make a shot. But, Stefan Frei made a great save. After 30 minutes of a competitive game, Justine Morrow crossed again to set up for Altidore but Frei performed an excellent defence.

Toronto FC was very conscientious to minimize Nicolas Lodeiro’s influence to his entire team, Seattle Sounders. At first, they were successful but the 2016 champions frustrated their opponent with an extraordinary defence with a spectacular performance from Roman Torres, the central defender. Since both weary teams did not have scores, they have settled a shootout. Seattle Sounders got 5 while Toronto FC got 4 to win their first MLS cup.

Because of the team’s success, Roman Torres and Stefan Frei were mobbed by their entire teammates. They were applauded and admired by many spectators who were present in the BMO Field. Colorado Rapids and Montreal Impact were also part of the MLS final four.But in the end, Seattle Sounders MLS Cup Champs 2016, and now we move on to EPL.

USMNT Way Behind To Qualify For WC 2018

usa-vs-mexicoUSMNT way behind to qualify for wc 2018,
and any more ties or losses here forward looks like no Russia 2018 World Cup for US.
2-1 loss for the US vs Mexico in Columbus was not a good start.
The US Men’s National Team battled through an intense match, but succumbed to 4-0 defeat to Costa Rica right in the first qualifier of the Final Round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Even in the first half the two teams carve out the chances, Johan Venegas, Costa Rica forward, has his header broke the deadlock right in the 44th minute of the game. The US Men’s National Team came out in the second frame of the game looking for the equalizer. On the other hand, as the team pushed forward, the other team was able to take advantage on the multiple occasions.
In the 68th minute of the game, Bolanos finished right before Joel Campbell, a substitute who grabbed a brace in the 74th as well as 78th to cement the victory for the home side right before the crowd at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica.
The US Men’s National team’s defeat brings a very intense end to the 2016 for the US, which is 12-6-1 and was finished 4th at the Copa American Centenario. They finished over its Semifinal Round World Cup Qualifying group to move on to the Hex.
But how much trouble has the team suffered after losing the first two games?
It was very sad news for the US Men’s National Team that they did not get off to a good beginning in the Hex, losing to Mexico and Costa Rica.
There would be 8 different games in the Hex, which would be played for the next 11 months, with different countries in top three that would be automatically be qualified to the World Cup. The 4th place team will face the 5th place team out of Asia right in the playoff for another place in the quadrennial tournament.
Way back four years ago, US Men’s National Team travelled to Honduras for the very first match of the Hex, but they lost 2-1. The team was able to rebound a month after and a half later, thus beating the team Costa Rica with the score of 1-0 in the Snow Game. The team would finish the Hex with 22 points, which is the most of any team during 2014 cycle.

 

Just take a look at this chart and you will see how much trouble the team had.

Points thru 2 games # of teams # to finish 3rd or higher # to finish 4th
6 2 2 0
4 8 5 1
3 6 4 1
2 5 0 1
2 6 4 1
0 3 0 1

Upon seeing the numbers, it is easy to say that the team had zero points from the first two games. Only the team Trinidad & Tobago has successfully qualified for the World Cup right after losing their first two games in the Hex. Though the US Men’s National team has suffered much trouble, they still have the opportunity to prove themselves in the next FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Their loss serves as their motivation to make the most out of the next games. USMNT way behind to qualify for wc 2018, and it will be a miracle if they make it.

Both teams proved powerful during their first year as they advanced to the playoffs. The following year, Columbus Crew Stadium officially opened as the first major league stadium in the United States of America that was constructed specifically for soccer.
Its presence paid off as thousands of fans packed the house to watch featured competitions. In the year 2002, MLS removed two of their 12 clubs from the roster and once again returned to 10 teams. Miami and Tampa Bay were no longer League teams, but were replaced in 2004 with other expansion teams. Club Deportivo Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake joined the League and brought the club number back up to its current 12 teams. The clubs of MLS consist of international and domestic competitors.

USWNT Rio 2016

US Women’s Soccer Team In Rio 2016 ready to win it ALL.

The women’s soccer competition for the Rio Brazil Olympics opened on Aug 3rd and ends Aug 19th in the gold medal game. The games would be plated in 6 cities and in 7 stadiums. Among the teams that would be competing for the title, the USA women’s soccer team is one of the most anticipated ones. This is because they are the reigning champions for the World Cup and this time, they are aiming to win the title for the 4th consecutive time. If they won in the Olympics, then they would be creating a new history for being the first team to have both titles at the same time.

Well, it is not impossible for them to achieve it, as they have the top players in the world Lloyd, Morgan, Heath, Dunn, and the whole Defense, Klingenberg, O’hare, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Krieger and Hope Solo on their team. Also, in the last 2 Olympic finals, it was Lloyd who was able to score the winning goal. Also, all these time, they have been doing a great job in the position they have given.

As expected, Lloyd shows great enthusiasm in the game and she was also the one who made it possible for the USA soccer team to earn their first goal with her perfect arcing shot. They became the leading team with the score 1-0. As the game continues, Alex Morgan was able to contribute another goal for the team, which has been the last goal of the game. As a result, team USA won with a score of 2-0. The game has been a great start for the team and has been a great news for their fans, both those who have been watching the game live in Brazil and in their own home.

Unfortunately, Megan Rapinoe was not able to play in the field as her right knee has been injured and is still recovering. Some said that her absence in the game can be felt, especially during the times when the American team had a hard time launching an attack against their opponent, New Zealand. Also, Hope Solo has received jeering from the public but who cares? What matters the most is that they were able to win the game.

Based on their performance, one can see that they have remained positive and active throughout the entire game. They also did not have a hard time acquiring victory, with Morgan and Lloyd who contributed the most. They have also become more comfortable during the second half as they were able to acquire two goals, making it quite difficult for New Zealand to beat them.

There have been no goals allowed in the first two games and Columbia ended in a 2-2 draw.  By seeing how great they have played the game, it would not be impossible for them to win the gold medal. They just need to continue on doing a great job. Meanwhile, Rio de Janeiro was able to win in the bidding process for the Olympic Games this year.

USA Copa America 2016 Final Set

argentina 2016 copa americaUSA Copa America 2016 final set Chile will play Argentina for the cup

Sunday June 26th at 7pm CST in East Rutherford. The USA made a good run

challenging all teams they played in the Copa and making it to the final four teams left.

Only to lose to number one world ranked Argentina. But the USA improvement was on

display in the first 4 matches.

The home advantage did nothing against Argentine Lionel Messi’s brilliance as the Argentina advances serenely to finals of Copa America Centenario, 4 – 0, in a match Argentina skillfully controlled from the start to finish.

Argentina will meet Chile in Copa Final and will seek to win their first major title since they claimed the 1993 Copa finals. Lionel Messi’s goal from his stunning free-kick made him the country’s top goal scorer. His 55th goal took him to the spot and cleared of Gabriel Baustuta’s total goal, and he also added 2 assists in game for a very good measure.

But how did Argentina had a clear win over the US? It is because they had Lionel Messi on their side, and US does not. Messi led his team to victory in Copa America semi-final match in NRG Stadium in Houston and basically ended the contest in first half with a goal and an assist. The game wasn’t even as close as indicated four-goal deficit as US didn’t register even a single shot. In addition, the game with ended greatly in favor with Argentina as they have 68% of the possession, and was in complete control from the starting or opening minute.

It was not all Messi who worked for the win of Argentina, but they also have Gonzalo Higuain who scored twice and Ezequiel Lavezi who scored the first goal of the game, as well as the player number 10 who assisted on those goals to make his teammates score. Because of their combined efforts, Argentina reached the championship match with Chile, with a chance to break their extended drought on championship title.

After the loss of USA team, you will clearly see why Argentina is the top team in the world today. While Argentina showed their superiority on Tuesday, the USA team played against them without Jermaine Jones, Alejandro Bedoya and Bobby Wood, who were all suspended from red and yellow cards. Despite their missing personnel, when losing in 4-0 match, you are not talking about anyone not on the field. It is plain and simple: they are really outmatched.

On the other hand, Messi discussed the team’s overall effort in 2016 Copa tournament, per ESPN FC. According to him, it was their goal when they participated in the tournament, to play the finals, and fortunately, they made it. Argentina showed spectacular performance since day one, and they really deserve the finals. Now, Argentina is a step away from the championship title.

Argentina is the top team in official FIFA rankings, and it did not take long to prove why. Lavezzi concealed a header in 3rd minute off a great placed chip pass from Lionel Messi after the Argentina corner to place the US behind 1-0. According to experts, this was the fastest goal the US ever allowed in Copa America. While the US defense didn’t allow a second goal throughout the middle part of first half, they still have trouble in keeping up with the overwhelming skill level of Argentina.

U.S. to face Colombia for Third Place Saturday June 25th 7pm CST U of Phoenix Stadium

Leicester City Wins EPL 2015-2016 Season

Leicester Outfoxes The Competition And Wins It All

You’ve got slightly better odds at being killed in a car crash. Slightly better than what? Slightly better than Leicester City’s chances of winning the Premier League at the beginning of this football season. Yet, the club fought against the five thousand to one odds and won the league. It was the first time since 1978 that a recently promoted second tier team has accomplished this feat – the last was Nottingham Forest. Nobody saw he East Midlands team coming, least of all Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United who couldn’t snag a win from the Foxes during their 22 and 36 season (they only lost three times all year, a feat in and of itself). This victory is made all the more poignant by the fact that Leicester is a small market team. The city itself isn’t that big and the team came in fourth in terms of player salaries by spending 48.2 million pounds. Manchester United spent 203 million pounds this year, for those of you counting that’s over four times as much. This goes to show that brilliant coaching (handled beautifully by Claudio Ranieri) and a drive to win can count for more than pounds in terms of winning the league. What this says to English Football is that it’s really not about who can spend more money or attract the biggest sponsors. It truly is still about heart, and millions of kids worldwide take to the pitch every day for just that reason. That’s not to say that money isn’t still heavily involved, but it’s good to know that it’s not always the predominant factor in football – A message that’s sorely needed after the FIFA fiasco of last year. And it’s telling that Gianni Infantino said of the Foxes win “It’s the magic of football.” Because hard work, mental fortitude, fair play, and talent couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it, and talent clearly wasn’t a problem for Leicester City this year. Jamie Vardy was awarded the Guinness World Record for most goals scored in a Premier League season. Number 9 scored twenty-two goals. That’s right, folks, 22 goals this season. This isn’t meant to take anything away from the efforts of his mates like Captain Wes Morgan or the acrobatic Kasper Schmeichel, but it truly is a phenomenal feat. So rejoice Leicester. There definitely will not be any relegation next year, at least not for your club. Yet, with every sunny day there is always the threat of a dark cloud – one must wonder how Leicester will handle being top dogs . . . er, foxes next season. The buck with the biggest rack always has the largest price on his head and the top contenders of the Premier League will be furiously tracking the foxes scent.

Cheers for Leicester City Wins EPL 2015-2016 Season

2015 NCAA Div 1 Soccer Champs

espn 4-0 stanford win ncaa soccer champs 2015  2015 NCAA Div 1 soccer champs are the Stanford Cardinals.

The NCAA Division 1 of Men’s soccer season of 2015, is known as the 56th season of the NCAA championship in college soccer of men’s division 1. Its regular season started last August 28 and lasted until November 2015. This season will be culminating with the Division 1 of Men’s Soccer Championship for December 2015. There are 206 identified teams in the category of Men’s division 1 in this competition. The defending champion were Virginia who were defeated by UCLA, and kept UVA from their 7th title.  The season ended when Stanford defeated Clemson 4-0 , making them the champs for the first time.
The first up to the third quarterfinal rounds were held in the college campus sites found across the U.S during the months of November as well as December for the previous year having the host sites as determined by record and seeding. The four-team college cup finals were played at Children’s Mercy Park found in Kansas City.
The defending champion Virginia Cavaliers were eliminated in this tournament during the second round. This leads to the eventual winning of Stanford as their first ever national title in this competition. The final four teams who are fighting for the national title that includes Syracuse, Akron, Clemson, and Stanford as the champion for this 2015 tournament.
After this tournament, Jordan Morris, the star of Stanford is now part of the official team of Seattle Sounders. Inspite of his age, he is considered to be the most hyped prospects of United States. He is undeniably a good player, which is highly proven by his 7 U.S national team caps after his name. The exploits were enough in landing the trial from Werder Bremen of Bundesliga wherein Morris had been training while on a juggle of deciding between returning to Seattle and even trying his skills overseas.
Sounders will now have the youthful addition of skilled unite as veteran attackers upon bringing Morris to the MLS field. Sigi Schmid, the head coach of Sounders said that Morris has the qualities that he thinks as unteachable qualities. This can be a great asset of this team that will probably lead to their championship while obtaining their national title. Sounders Seattle team is highly impressed with the athleticism of Jordan together with his finishing and rate ability.
Jordan Morris is expected to join in the pre-season of MLS Sounders after the conclusion of USMNT camp. As he becomes a part of Sounders, there will surely be a higher possibility of obtaining a MLS title easier like never before.  Morris can be considered as the team asset that will surely create a hard time to all their opposing teams, so MLS teams will really need to double their training to keep up with the skills Morris already has.

Congratulations 2015 NCAA Div 1 soccer champs are the Stanford Cardinals.
