While it didnt generate anything remotely like the attention of Germanys 7-1 thrashing of Brazil at the World Cup, the Palestinian teams 1-0 victory over the Philippines in the AFC Challenge Cup final may have been one of the most significant international football results of 2014. Air Jordan 11 Sale Canada .The teams, both outside the top 100, met at the Maldives in May, with the winner guaranteed a spot at the Asian Cup. And so it was a momentous win for the fledgling Palestinian team.And that set the newcomers on course for a big debut against defending champion Japan at Newcastle, Australia, next Monday.While the Palestinians are outsiders against continental heavyweight Japan, subsequent group games against Iraq and Jordan will likely be more important in determining whether the Cup rookies can surprise a continent by making the last eight.Japan is the best team in the group, coach Ahmad Al Hassan said after arriving in Australia. The chances of the other three teams, however, are equal and we will be trying our best to get the best results for Palestine.Following victory in the AFC Challenge Cup, the Palestinians performed strongly at the Asian Games; a largely under-23 tournament that features more countries than any other Asian competition. The Palestinians had never won a game at previous Asian Games, but in South Korea they topped a group containing Tajikistan, Singapore and Oman. Finishing first was rewarded with a second-round match against Japan, resulting in a 4-0 defeat.The senior squad was in good form leading into the trip Down Under, with wins over Taiwan, India, Pakistan and India in friendlies, a 0-0 draw with China and a 1-0 loss to Uzbekistan.There have been issues. Not only will the team be without the injured Swedish-based midfielder Imad Zatara in Australia, but Jamal Mahmoud quit as coach in September after three successful years in charge for reasons that are still not completely clear. Al Hamad, who had spent the previous two years as technical director for the national federation was appointed as the replacement.On top of the changes and challenges of working with limited facilities, the team must constantly deal with the political and security difficulties at home.All but six players in the 23-man squad are based in the Palestinian territories. Holding training camps and travelling overseas has been problematic due to difficulties obtaining permits. The Palestinian federation has complained about Israeli travel restrictions on some of its players in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, a territory ruled by the Palestinian Islamic militant group Hamas.Israel has cited concerns about possible attacks by Palestinian militants as the main reason for sweeping restrictions on movement that affect most Palestinians, including athletes.To be competitive, much depends on the experience of the Palestinian players who live abroad. Ashraf Numan, who scored the only goal of the AFC Challenge Cup final against the Philippines, plays for Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia.Arab football has improved a lot in the past 10 years, the situation is better in this area than in East Asia and this is our dream to go to the World Cup, the Numan told Australias SBS network. We watched how the Algerian side played in the World Cup at a high level and no-one expected that; this is the big dream for us and at the same time its not impossible.Avoiding defeat in the opening game against Japan would be considered a major success. The big game comes against 2007 champion Iraq, a talented but unpredictable team — as it demonstrated when finishing bottom of its group during Novembers Gulf Cup. That failure led the Iraqi FA to hire a new coach.Following that is a group game against Jordan, also getting to grips with a new coach. Former English international Ray Wilkins, a one-time midfield star for Manchester United and Milan, was appointed in September. Cheap Air Jordan 11 . For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11. Wholesale Jordan Retro 11 . "Ive still got it," Seattles ace said with a sly grin. Riding that fastball carrying a little more zip, Hernandez took a shutout bid into the ninth inning as the Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-1 on Wednesday night. On the verge of a brilliant shutout and first complete game since Aug.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman needed a few extra minutes to clear his head.His team took advantage of mistakes by the New York Jets to jump to an early lead, but then things got a little too close for comfort in a 27-19 win Monday night.It was quite a game, Trestman said after arriving a few minutes later than usual for his postgame news conference. I thought we played an excellent football team. They have the ability to run it and they play terrific defence. Im just proud of our football team. It was a team win.Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Martellus Bennett and Ryan Mundy returned an interception 45 yards for a score. Cutler finished 23 of 38 for 225 yards and Alshon Jeffery caught eight passes for 105 yards for the Bears, who got a 45-yard field goal from Robbie Gould to make it an eight-point game with 3:10 remaining.The Jets (1-2) had one last opportunity to tie, getting into Bears territory on Geno Smiths 51-yard pass to Greg Salas. But Jeremy Kerley was out of bounds in the back of the end zone when he made a leaping grab of Smiths desperation fourth-down heave from the Bears 9.Cutler took a knee three times to seal the victory for the Bears (2-1).We just have to ride this momentum, Cutler said.Smith was 26 of 43 for 316 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions a€” and nearly had a few others. Kerley finished with seven catches for 81 yards, and almost came up with a diving grab off a tipped pass in the end zone on the final drive.There were some plays you wish you could have back, Jets coach Rex Ryan said.The Jets lost wide receiver Eric Decker in the first half to a hamstring injury; he was questionable for the game with tightness in the hamstring. Decker said he pulled himself out when he couldnt get it loosened up. Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson also left with an injured right knee, but Ryan didnt think it was serious.The Bears went up 14-0 just over five minutes into the game.On New Yorks second play from scrimmage, Smith didnt see Mundy lurking in the flat as he floated a screen pass to Chris Johnson. Mundy stepped in front of the toss and ran untouched into the end zone for a 45-yard score.I put ourselves in a hole with the interception for a touchdown, Smith said. We definitely chipped away and had a chance to win at the end.After the Jets stopped the Bears on three plays on their first offensive series, rookie Jalen Saunders dropped Patrick ODonnells punt at his 40 and it was recovered by Ahmad Dixon. Cutler threw deep down the right sideline to Jeffery one play later, and cornerback Darrin Walls was called for pass interfereence to put the ball at the Jets 7. Air Jordan 11 Retro Canada. .Three plays later, Cutler rolled right and found Bennett in the back of the end zone to make it 14-0 a€” and get the MetLife Stadium crowd booing.There is a little lack of respect for me as a tight end, Bennett said. Its kind of like a chip on my shoulder. They never really mention me.The Jets got on the scoreboard on their next possession, capping an 11-play, 55-drive with Nick Folks 43-yard field goal.Chicago answered with a 15-play, 79-yard drive helped by cornerback Antonio Allens holding penalty on a third-down incompletion by Cutler. Goulds 24-yard field goal gave the Bears a 17-3 lead 66 seconds into the second quarter.New York cut the deficit to 17-13 with a 77-yard drive on which Kerley accounted for 51 a€” including a 19-yard touchdown.A video review reversed a call late in the half on which the Jets might have taken the lead. Cutler was sacked by David Harris and lost the ball, but was declared down by contact. A review showed Cutler had fumbled, but Demario Davis return to the end zone was negated because the whistle had blown.It couldve been a game-changing play, but the referee blew the whistle, Harris said. What can you do? What else is new? It seems like were playing against two teams out there sometimes.Added Davis: I knew when I picked it up that it was a fumble. And, it shouldve been a touchdown.The Jets then went three-and-out.Chicago opened the second half aggressively, marching 80 yards on six plays and capping the drive with Bennetts 13-yard touchdown catch to make it 24-13. The Bears nearly had a 12-yard TD by Brandon Marshall earlier in the drive, but it was wiped out by a hands-to-the-face penalty on left guard Michael Ola.The Jets also blew a possible scoring drive when Smith was intercepted by Kyle Fuller on a poorly thrown pass to David Nelson in the end zone on first-and-10 from the Bears 18.You cant force it in that situation, Ryan said. You learn from it.NOTES: Bears fullback Tony Fiammetta injured a hamstring and safety Chris Conte hurt his left shoulder. Neither returned. ... Mundy also sat out portions of the game with a shoulder injury. ... The Jets announced that late owner Leon Hess and former wide receiver Wayne Chrebet will be inducted into the teams Ring of Honor on Dec. 1. ... The Jets, who came in ranked No. 1 in rushing defence, held Matt Forte to 33 yards on 13 carries. ... Marshall finished with one catch for 6 yards.
