Dopapod has been on a tear of late, emerging earlier this year with new music to accentuate their recently-released Never Odd Or Even
Martin Jol will use the lure of playing in next summer’s World Cup to motivate his players over the coming months. “That is a big inspiration and I always try to use it,” Jol explained. “But I try not to overuse it, because it could be a big problem if everyone wants to go to the World Cup you know. “For example Brede (Hangeland) has got no problem with Norway, Philippe Senderos wants to have his games, he wants to play and if they don’t play they’ve got a problem, because all these national teams and their coaches they want their players to play. “For example with (Holland coach) Louis van Gaal, if you don’t play he won’t select you, so of course I use it as a motivation.” He added: “I’ve got Alex Kacaniklic, he’s in the Sweden team and did well, Kasami has made his debut now, so of course they want to go to Brazil. “But first they have to perform and do well.” Jol admitted though that performing in the Premier League brings pressure in any event. “Pressure is always there because you have need pressure to compete and perform and on the other hand in the Premier League there will always be pressure to win games,” he said. Ruiz helped book Costa Rica’s World Cup spot with a skilful left-footed strike across his body in the opening half of their 2-1 win over Mexico during the week, and Jol clearly hopes the 28-year-old will put in a similar performance against Crystal Palace on Monday. But for now he is just happy the midfielder has returned injury-free along with his other foreign players. “The only obstacle can be our fitness or people like Bryan who was on international duty. That is my only worry, how will they come back. Our medical staff do a great job however and everyone’s fit. So as long as everyone’s fit there’s no problem, but to win games,” he said. Bryan Ruiz (Costa Rica), Ashkan Dejagah (Iran), Maarten Stekelenburg (Holland), Derek Boateng (Ghana), Philippe Senderos (Switzerland) and Pajtim Kasami (Switzerland) are among the Fulham players who could feature in the tournament in Brazil next year. Costa Rica captain Ruiz is clearly likely to start for his country but others will need to impress at Craven Cottage over the coming months to boost their credentials for World Cup selection.

A hard touch on the ball opened up an opportunity for goalie Regan Spencer to run out and throw her body at the ball. Spencer slid and swept the Penn player’s legs out from under her, knocking the ball away.“I knew they were up numbers and I knew she going to dribble in close or I could try and stop her at the top,” Spencer said. “The ball was ahead of her, her eyes were down, so I figured I could go for it.”Spencer’s activeness in goal was a deciding factor in her second shutout of the season, as No. 1 Syracuse (8-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) defeated Penn (5-2, 1-0 Ivy), 4-0. Spencer saved six shots, three of which came within the first 20 minutes of the game.Coming into the game, SU head coach Ange Bradley was upset with the number of shots Syracuse was giving up and the lack of pressure by its defense. The Orange fell in double overtime to No. 5 North Carolina just two days prior.“UNC was a wake up call and eye-opener. We identified the changes we needed to make,” Spencer said. “(Penn) was a really good trial run to go out and do it and prove, not only to me, but to each other.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPenn started the game with strong pressure on SU and was dominating possession. However, for every Quakers shot, Spencer was there to make the stop.On Penn’s second penalty corner, Spencer deflected a shot and, as the ball rolled toward the end line, she saw players collapsing toward the ball. She ran over and slid, kicking the ball out of bounds.Just a few minutes later, Penn’s Gina Guccione fired a shot on goal. Spencer stuck out her foot to stop the ball from getting past her. It rolled back into play, but SU was able to block Alexa Hoover’s rebound and start a counter-attack.After the first half, Syracuse’s offense stepped up, and the team’s defense limited Penn to just three more shots.Spencer has allowed just 10 goals over her eight starts this season. And a big reason behind her success is her movement in front of the goal. Whether it is diving to keep an opponent from scoring off a rebound or stopping a one-on-one with the opposition, Spencer has reliably been there to break up the runs.“I think (Regan) was fantastic,” Bradley said. “To see her come out and be able to repeat a performance (like against UNC), there’s nothing more powerful than that.” Comments
Richarlison rediscovered his goalscoring form as Everton beat Wolves 3-2 in a thrilling Premier League clash at Goodison Park.Despite twice being pegged back by the visitors, the Brazilian had the final say with a superb header to add to his early opener.His first strike came in the fifth minute courtesy of a mix-up between Wolves’ goalkeeper Rui Patricio and captain Conor Coady.That set the tone for a frantic opening 12 minutes, which saw Wolves equalize through Romain Saiss only to find themselves behind again moments later.Former Arsenal star Alex Iwobi restored the hosts’ lead with a bullet header, and despite plenty of goalmouth action, the game remained at 2-1 for the ensuing hour.Then Raul Jimenez leveled things up in the 75th minute with a brave header, only to see Richarlison climb highest to net the winner five minutes later and condemn Wolves to their first defeat of the season.To make matters worse, Willy Boly, who was outjumped for the winner, saw red after receiving a second yellow with seconds of the game remaining.Meanwhile, the Toffees climb up to fifth and seize the early initiative in the race for Europa League spots.
Sunday morning offered a good visual measuring stick for Ryu’s progress.At one point he, Brandon Beachy and Brandon League were all throwing in the outfield at Dodger Stadium. Beachy, who is 13 months removed from Tommy John surgery, was easily the most advanced. He was playing long toss from left-center field to the left-field foul line, winding up and throwing from a crow hop.On the other end was League, who is still tossing somewhat leisurely from approximately 75 feet. Like Ryu, there is no timetable for League to return from his shoulder problems.In the middle was Ryu, hurling fastballs and changeups and spinning his curve.“There is no pain right now,” he said. When Hyun-Jin Ryu first experienced shoulder inflammation in spring training, it appeared to be a minor injury. He received an injection and was shut down from throwing for three days.When the inflammation and pain didn’t let up, Ryu was shut down for another two weeks. He didn’t start throwing until early April, about two weeks ago, and still hasn’t received permission to throw off a mound.There is no clearly defined timetable for his return. Ryu said he doesn’t even have a target date to be pitching in games again. How about before the All-Star break?“Of course,” he said through an interpreter. “I have to come back before then. I’m confident about that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error But the Dodgers’ need for a fifth starter persists. They don’t need one until Friday in San Diego, but manager Don Mattingly said he is contemplating giving Zack Greinke an extra day’s rest and using his fifth starter on Thursday in San Francisco instead.David Huff made a spot start Tuesday against the Seattle Mariners and was subsequently designated for assignment. Scott Baker, Zach Lee, Joe Wieland and Mike Bolsinger are all candidates to be recalled Thursday.Ryu went 14-7 with a 3.38 earned-run average in 26 starts last season, and the Dodgers might miss him more if they were not riding a seven-game winning streak. Ryu said in spring training that he’d like to pitch at least 200 innings this year, something he hasn’t done in his first two major league seasons. That won’t happen now, and Ryu is in no hurry to rush back.“At this condition, I’m sure I could (throw off a mound) at some point,” Ryu said, “but I haven’t gotten far in the long toss yet so we’re just being cautious.”AlsoYasiel Puig (sore left hamstring) was not in the starting lineup for the fourth time in the last five games, but Mattingly said that Puig was available if needed in case of a double-switch. Puig could return to the starting lineup Tuesday in San Francisco. … Carl Crawford (flu) was not available off the bench after receiving IV treatment Saturday night. … Joc Pederson felt he was safe at third base after apparently eluding a rundown in the second inning. The umpires agreed until they discussed the play and overturned the initial call, ruling that Pederson left the baseline. The play could not be challenged. … Pederson is 1 for 4 in stolen-base attempts this season.
