Canadas path to World Cup glory became much clearer on Saturday as the draw took plac
Canadas path to World Cup glory became much clearer on Saturday as the draw took place for next years tournament and after a positive draw for the host nation, head coach John Herdman says there can be no excuses. J.J. Jansen Jersey . There is no easy team in the group, said Herdman. China have been one of the top Asian teams over recent years, the Netherlands are an up and coming team with some real talent in there, and I know a bit about New Zealand, so Im pretty happy. We have beaten these teams in the last two years, we are ranked higher than them, so there should be no excuses, but these teams have improved over the last three years. Canada will open the tournament against China in Edmonton on June 6 before facing New Zealand at Commonwealth Stadium and wrapping up the group stage at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, and Herdman is aiming high. Theres no reason why we cant win the group, thats fair to say. If you had one of those tough European teams in it might have been a bit tighter, but we should get a good chance of doing that. Ahead of the draw, Herdman said he wanted to avoid Sweden and England - mission accomplished. He also talked of his hopes to be drawn against a New Zealand team he coached before moving to Canada – again, Herdman got his wish. All my wishes nearly came true, he said following the draw. I wanted New Zealand in the opening game, that would have been really cool because some of those girls Ive brought up from the age of 18 and now they are blossoming into some top class players. With an expanded tournament of 24 nations, there are six groups of four teams. The top two from each group will qualify along with four of the best third placed finishers. Following the draw, Canada can now also plot a pathway through the knockout stages of the tournament. If they can win Group A they would play one of the best third-placed teams from Group C, D or E in the Round of 16 in Vancouver. That would also give them the chance to avoid the top teams in the world until the semifinals and even set up a final against the United States – but lets not get ahead of ourselves! Canadas preparations are already well underway with residency camp having started in Vancouver earlier this fall, but they will get a chance to see one of their World Cup opponents up close when they face China in a four-team tournament early in the New Year. Everything over the last two or three years has been preparing the players for what will come in the World Cup, said Herdman. Its about getting used to playing in Canada, the media, the hype, so people dont have to put mental energy on things that are new. We want to have experienced as many things as we can. That preparation goes even as far as trying out different training facilities and hotels so that Herdmans team will be in surroundings that are familiar and most conducive to success when the tournament kicks off next June. The coach will not leave a stone unturned when it comes to making sure Canada is the most prepared team in the tournament. This team knows what their responsibility is, said Herdman. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity and they will get one chance to make this country proud. We have kept this simple – it is just about them being at their best and knowing the responsibility of wearing that shirt. We can connect the country through the way we play, and that is as simple as it gets. Theres little doubt it was a good day for Canada. It could have been better, but it could have been much worse. Canada will be the highest seed in the group, with the backing of the home crowd. It gives them a great chance to progress out of the group stage and hopefully long after that as well. Brenton Bersin Jersey . - Their offence is underperforming. Scott Simonson Jersey . The ninth-seeded Safarova doused Swede Johanna Larsson 6-2, 6-3 on the green clay at Family Circle Tennis Center. The Czech player was a finalist here two years ago and captured back-to-back doubles titles in 2012 and last year. . Halak did not get the start in the Washington Capitals Tuesday night game against the St.NASHVILE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans have waived offensive tackle David Stewart after he failed a physical. Stewart, a fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi State in 2005, had started 116 games for the Titans since 2006. He broke his right leg Dec. 2, 2012, in a game with the Houston Texans. Even though he played 12 games last season, he rarely practiced while struggling with injuries.. Greg Olsen Jersey. Stewart said late last season he expected he would need surgery during the off-season. In a team statement Wednesday announcing the move, Titans general manager Ruston Webster said, "He played the game with passion and brought a toughness that every team needs. Dave was a player we have always been able to count on, and in our mind he will always be a Titan."
