Day three was another outstanding day of football in Brazil. The goals kept pouring in – 13 on the day and now 28 goals scored in just eight matches – the most goals scored in that span in the World Cup since 1954. In comparison, there were only 25 goals scored after every team played one match at 2010 South Africa. Thats 16 games. Three and a half goals per game is a staggering statistic, especially considering most are the product of stellar play rather than poor defending. Its also quickly becoming the World Cup of the counter-attack, where speed and finish on the rush is proving decisive. Day three was also a day of standout individual performances. Specifically, the play of the young, a veteran and a guardian of the goal stole the show. These four players from different teams, representing different confederations and playing different positions, all coming up with memorable performances on a memorable day. Young Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier was a dominant force throughout for Cote dIvoire, helping turn around the nightcap of the Super Saturday quadruple-header. The Ivorian wingback was a constant threat down the wing all night, particularly in attack. A tactical change brought on Didier Drogba for Serey Die in the 62nd minute. The change caused immediate havoc in the Japanese back four, opening up more gaps inside the 18-yard box. Aurier went to work. It took just two minutes for Aurier to provide pinpoint service on crosses to Wilfried Bony, and then two minutes later to Gervinho. The attacking players did their part on the finish but it was the crosses that stood out. Both whipped in by Aurier with pace and precision, finding the open man rather than just hitting and hoping. There was composure about each ball, not usually seen from such a young player. His relentless energy bursting forward with strength and purpose was a difference-maker. The game shifted because of the goals, where Drogba and company were able to separate and seal the victory. The final scoreline read 2-1 with two assists for Aurier. The performance by the right back is the best weve seen so far from the position. One year his elder, James Rodriguez is a star in the making. The 22-year-old put in arguably the top display over 90 minutes of the tournament in Colombias 3-0 win over Greece. He played a part in all three goals, scoring the third of the game. His most impressive intervention wasnt on his goal – a poised finish after receiving a back-heal from the likewise impressive Cuadrado in the 90th minute. The opening goal was of the Monaco-mans doing. Hell never get the credit Cuadrado will get, but he should. Rodriguez started the move from his own end, playing a forty-yard ball over the top with a bend to a on-running Cuadrado. As his teammate pulled the moves out wide, Rodriguez ran the full length of the field showing in the attacking area. Cuadrado played near post to Rodriguez who dummied the ball to an awaiting Pablo Amero who provided the finish. Five minutes in and the tone had been set by the centre-midfielder. The pass, the run, and the wherewithal to leave the ball signaled his class. All afternoon, Rodriguez ran wild, covering an incredible amount of ground and setting the tone. Rodriguez also took the corner leading to the second goal, a near-post service that was flicked before Teo Gutierrez tapped home. It was a day Colombia was able to sit back and pick their spots. Rodriguez dictated the pace for Colombia. He was the maestro. Even if Falcao were available, it would be the young star that would prove most influential. Watch him as the tournament progresses. Rodriguez is special. Special and/or influential are a couple of apt superlatives used to describe the incomparable Andrea Pirlo. The 35-year-old Italian veteran had himself another match to remember in Italys 2-1 win over England. The intelligence by which he plays was another level to his competition. Composure is a theme here, and Pirlo was never rattled in the heat of Manaus. Pirlo completed 108 passes at a success rate of 95 per cent. Most the completed passes in the first half were without pressure. The passing out of the back in the second half under high pressure was a thing of beauty. England had no player who could limit his effectiveness. Pundits correctly point out to stop Italy you must stop Pirlo. Easier said than done. The savvy by which he plays is another level. The dummy he laid on Claudio Marchisios 35th minute strike gave his teammates ample time and space to pick his spot. England players were left without a hope. And the moment that will provided the GIF of the night was Pirlos free kick from 25 yards out, hit dead on by the midfielder with the ball floating and bending outwards before going off the crossbar. The floating ball completely fooled goalkeeper Joe Hart, who was entirely fooled and was left going the other way. Embarrassing for Hart, masterful from Pirlo. It was another near perfect night from one of the most influential players in the World Cup. Moments can define matches. No moment Saturday proved bigger than the 44th minute of Uruguay and Costa Rica. The highly favoured Uruguay was up 1-0 late in the first half, with the South Americans pressing for a second. What happens just before the half can have a distinct affect on what happens after play resumes. Case and point, Robin van Persies 44th minute wonder goal and equalizer Friday, helping turn the tides against Spain. Saturday, a second goal before halftime would have buried the Ticos. Queue goalkeeper Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican backstop had an outstanding year at Levante. His prowess was on full display in that decisive 44th minute. Diego Forlan had found space on the back post. His strike took a massive deflection off a defender and had eyes for the top right corner. Navas, caught off his line, lunged back and punched the ball out before it crossed the line. It was an incredible save to make, and a save of the tournament contender. The balance and co-ordination was outstanding at a difficult moment. Im comfortable saying if Navas doesnt make the save, Costa Rica loses the match. Navas remained a rock amidst pressure in the second half. He even guessed right on Edinson Cavanis penalty. Navas was in the zone and gives further reason to believe Costa Rica can remain competitive in Group D. These were four different contexts and four specials performances on an extraordinary Saturday at the World Cup. The high level of overall attacking play is making for a distinctive tournament. But its these kinds of special moments and exceptional performances that will live for the ages. No matter age, position, or method, Aurier, Rodriguez, Pirlo and Navas have already left their mark in Brazil. And to think, the best may be still to come. Curtis Samuel Jersey .A. Happ? Happs seven wins are second on the staff to Mark Buehrles 10. Win-loss record is an antiquated stat, sure, but win total is generally an indication of a pitchers ability to work deep into games, enough to be personally affected by the result.

Lakers, spoke as a representative of current NBA players at a press conference assembled by Sacramento mayor and National Basketball Players Association adviser Kevin Johnson. http://www.cheapjetsjerseyssale.com/?tag=greg-olsen-jersey-sale. - This is just the warm-up act for 18-year-old William Nylander.

David Cutcliffes Blue Devils are taking part in their third straight postseason event after finishing the regular season at an impressive 9-3, including a second-place finish in the ACCs Coastal Division behind Georgia Tech. It is now safe to say Cutcliffe is building a strong program in Durham, as back-to-back seasons of 9+ victories is a first in school history for the Blue Devils. This marks Dukes 11th all-time bowl appearance, although the team is just 3-7 in prior bowl games. The Blue Devils will try to buck a trend of sorts, as the team hasnt won a bowl game since the 1961 Cotton Bowl against Arkansas (7-6). Dukes recent success is something Cutcliffe is proud of. To be selected to participate in the Sun Bowl is both a privilege and honor for our program, said Cutcliffe. The tradition of the Sun Bowl is well documented, and it is exciting to become a part of that prestigious history. Obviously, I could not be any more thrilled for our seniors, who together become the first class in Duke history to play in three bowl games. That means a lot, and it should. Todd Grahams Sun Devils also finished the year up at 9-3 and were also very much in the hunt in the Pac-12 Conference race. Arizona State however, dropped two of its last three games, leaving itself on the outside looking in on a conference championship bout. Still, a bowl bout with Duke is a nice consolation prize. This is a great opportunity for us to compete against a top-notch program and close out the 2014 season on a high note, Graham said. We look forward to representing our university in El Paso with character, class and dignity. Arizona States bowl resume is a bit longer than Dukes, with this game marking its 28th postseason appearance. ASU is 13-13-1 all-time in the postseason, including last years 37-23 loss to Texas Tech in the Holiday Bowl. This marks the first-ever meeting between these two teams. With the emergence of a run game that has eluded the Blue Devils in the recent past, Duke was able to keep opponents honest and take its offense to a new level in 2014. The team ranked fifth in the ACC and 42nd nationally in scoring at 32.5 ppg, while netting 183.3 ypg on the ground (45th nationally). Duke amassed 24 rushing TDs this season, but used several different ball carriers to get the job. Tailbacks Shaun Wilson (590 yards, 8.0 ypc, 5 TDs) was the most explosive back, although players like Shaquille Powell (501 yards, 4.8 ypc, 2 TDs) and quarterbacks Anthony Boone (346 yards, 5 TDs) and Thomas Sirk (232 yards, 8 TDs) contributed as well. Meanwhile, Boone had a strong season passing the ball, completing 56.9 percent of his throws, for 2,507 yards and 17 TDs.dddddddddddd A deep receiving corps is highlighted by senior wideout Jamison Crowder. Dukes all-time leader in receptions, Crowder posted team-highs of 78 receptions, 942 yards and six TDs, en route to All-ACC first-team honors. Isaac Blackeney (43 receptions, 521 yards) matched Crowders TD catches (6). The Duke defense had its ups and downs this season, but that doesnt take away from the fact that there are playmakers at each level. Senior linebacker David Helton (All-ACC second team) had a huge season, earning All-ACC first-team honors with a team-best 125 tackles. There may not be a better safety tandem in the country than Dukes DeVon Edwards and Jeremy Cash. Edwards is second on the team with 119 tackles, 3.5 sacks, one interception and four forced fumbles. Cash (All-ACC second team) was the only defensive back in the nation to post 100+ tackles (103). 10+ TFL (10.5) and 5+ sacks (5.5). The 6-foot-2 junior also recorded two interceptions and four forced fumbles. Senior end Jordan DeWalt-Ondijo (42 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 3.5 sacks) had a solid season coming off the edge. Dukes defense will surely be tested in this contest by a potent Arizona State attack. The Sun Devils ranked third in the offensive-minded Pac-12 in scoring at 37.0 ppg, while churning out 446.5 yards of total offense. Quarterback Taylor Kelly missed a few games under center due to injury, but still managed to throw for 1,874 yards and 20 TDs. It certainly helps to have great players at the skill positions and Kelly benefited from two of the Pac-12s best. Junior wideout Jaelen Strong is a big target (6-3, 215) and certainly created mismatches all season long, finishing up with 75 receptions, for 1,062 yards and 10 TDs, en route to All-Pac-12 first-team honors as well as several All- America accolades. Meanwhile, junior tailback D.J. Foster (All-Pac-12 second team) also eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark, as he rumbled for 1,002 yards and nine TDs on a healthy 5.5 yards per carry. Arizona States defense could not match its offense in terms of production this season. The Sun Devils have given up plenty of yards (418.5 ypg) and have been known to be susceptible to the pass (261.8 ypg). However, that has led to opportunities as well, with ASU collecting 39 sacks on the season. Strong play in the secondary is not exclusive to Duke, as AU has its own safety tandem of note in senior Damarious Randall and junior Jordan Simone. Randall, an All-Pac-12 first-team selection, topped the team in tackles (101), with 9.5 TFL, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery). Simone (90) tackles made his share of plays as well, with two INTs and one forced fumble. Senior end Marcus Hardison (40 tackles, 14.0 TFL, 10.0 sacks, 2 INTs, 3 FF) earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention.
