at Anfield following Scotlands shock draw with New Zealand on Friday, Australia had nothing but their pride on the line.England Antworten

Mal Meninga has prevailed in the battle of the Queensland greats with his Australia side ending the Four Nations campaign of Wayne Bennetts England with a 36-18 win in London.The Kangaroos ran in six tries at the London Stadium, ruthlessly running away with the game in the second half after a tightly-contested opening stanza that saw the tourists lead 10-6 at the break, in front of a crowd of 35,569.Having already been assured of their spot in next weekends final at Anfield following Scotlands shock draw with New Zealand on Friday, Australia had nothing but their pride on the line.England needed to avoid defeat to book a place in the decider at the expense of the Kiwis but any hopes of the Meningas men taking it easy never materialised as they showed their class and professionalism in a polished display.England drew first blood with an early Gareth Widdop penalty before Johnathan Thurston responded in kind in the 17th minute.The home crowd were on their feet eight minutes later when livewire winger Jermaine McGillvary finished off a smart move with a fine finish in the right corner.Widdop failed to add the extras and Australia hit back five minutes before the break when Blake Ferguson hauled in a bullet pass from Darius Boyd, before Thurston bisected the posts from the sideline to give his side an 8-6 advantage.The Kangaroos were then gifted two points on the siren when Josh Hodgson failed to find touch from a penalty and Sam Burgesss reckless tackle on Aaron Woods allowed Thurston to extend the lead.The second half was a complete contrast to the first with Greg Inglis scoring the first of five second-half tries six minutes after the restart with Matt Scott and Josh Dugan adding further four-pointers that were converted by Thurston.Widdop scampered over for the hosts to reduce the deficit to 28-12 but Matt Gillett darted over after a great pass from man of the match Cooper Cronk to end any hopes of an English fightback.Ryan Halls 31st try in as many games for his country was a late consolation for England, but Valentine Holmes had the final say with an acrobatic diving effort in the dying minutes to add some extra gloss to the scoreline.It was very pleasing to get a win in a tough game, but we have a few things to work on, few things we wont be able to do next week, Australia skipper Cameron Smith said.They boys were really up for this game and are looking forward to next week.England skipper Burgess, who was lucky to stay on the field after cutting the eye of David Klemmer with a well-thrown punch in a late scuffle said bad errors cost his side..It was quite disappointing, Burgess said.We let ourselves down with crucial errors you cant do at this level.We missed touch and that was big momentum swinger. Weve not done as well we would have wanted. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China .

Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. Authentic Nike NFL Jerseys . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Auston Matthews delivered an NHL debut for the ages on Wednesday, scoring four goals on a night that wont soon be forgotten in the rich history of the Toronto Maple Leafs.The 19-year-old from Scottsdale, Arizona, chosen first overall in Junes NHL draft, scored on his first three shots against the Senators, with the hat trick prompting visiting Leafs fans at the Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa to throw hats onto the ice.Three was not enough, however.Matthews took a pass from linemate William Nylander on a 2-on-1 break and scored a fourth goal (on just his sixth shot) with three seconds left in the second period, becoming the first player in modern NHL history to score that many in his debut.The Senators went on to win the NHL season opener 5-4 in overtime.Matthews called the night pretty unbelievable.You dont really draw it up like that, he told Sportsnet after the game.It was a record-breaking evening all around for Matthews.The hat trick was the quickest for a player making his NHL debut (since 1943-44). And he became the fifth player overall to notch a hat trick?in his first game, joining Derek Stepan of the New York Rangers (2010), Fabian Brunnstrom of the Dallas Stars (2008), Real Cloutier of the Quebec Nordiques (1979) and Alex Smart of the Montreal Canadiens (1943).Matthews scored on his first shot at 8:21 into the first period, snapping in a pass from Zach Hyman during a scrum around the net.His second goal came with 5:42 left in the first, after he dangled through a pair of Senators near the blue line. After briefly losing possession, he stole the puck from two-time Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson along the boards, then beat goalie Craig Anderson with an odd-angle forehand.Matthews put Toronto ahead 3-2 with a one-timer from inside the right circle on a feed from Morgan Rielly?at 1:25 into the second period.He then netted historic No. 4 with three seconds left in the second period, breaking a 3-3 tie.Despite the historic first game, Matthews took responsibility for the loss after failing to pick up Turris coming into the Toronto zone. Turris took in a pass from Mark Stone with Matthews chasing, set himself and fired a shot by Frederik Andersen.That last play was 100 percent my fault, he said. We came here to win and we didnt get that done.According to Elias Sports Bureau research, Matthews is the third-youngest player with four goals in a game, surpassed only by 18-year-olds Jack Hamilton (1943-44) and Bob Carpenter (1981-82).And at his current pace, Matthews will break Wayne Gretzkys NHL record of 894 goals in late February 2019, during his third NHL season and his 224th NHL game. (Gretzky had 186 goals in his first 224 NHL games.)After Wednesday nights game, however, Matthews downplayed any notion of ratcheted-up expectations.?You dont get too many of those games, said Matthews, the 12th first overall pick to scoore in his NHL debut.dddddddddddd Its just one game. Take it, move forward and focus on the next one. It just happened to be a great night individually, and especially for our line.His parents, Brian and Ema Matthews, were at the game Wednesday night, and the look on their faces after each goal translated pure emotion.It meant a lot, Matthews said of having his parents there. Pretty special moment, not just for myself but for them, as well. They have been a pretty huge part of getting me to this point, so it was only right for them to be here for the first one.?Matthews Mania no doubt already is sweeping the NHL, but dont be in a rush to buy any of his jerseys just yet.The NHLs official store does not have any Matthews jerseys ready to go, so if fans want to purchase one, they have to customize it.The Leafs, who finished 30th overall in the standings in 2015-16, were accused by many of tanking last season in their attempt to secure the best possible odds in the NHL draft lottery to get Matthews. They lost out the previous year in the lottery, with the Edmonton Oilers taking Connor McDavid first overall.This time, the Leafs won the lottery, and there wasnt any hesitation in making Matthews the first overall pick. He is at the heart of a massive rebuild. The Leafs Stanley Cup drought dates back to 1967, and the current regime led by president Brendan Shanahan, general manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Mike Babcock is intent on making this youth movement work.I thought just for me, from my perspective, since Ive been the Leafs coach, thats the best night Ive had since Ive been here by 10 miles, not even close, because now we have an opportunity, Babcock said after Wednesday nights defeat.When you look at [Mitch] Marner -- I know Matthews scored all the goals -- I thought Marner in the first half of the game might have been the best player. I thought Nylander was great. I thought Hyman was great. I thought [Connor] Brown was great. I thought [Sam] Carrick was great. I thought [Nikita] Zaitsev was great. Pretty good night for us. Did we want the other point? Absolutely. The way we controlled the puck and controlled the game, youve got to win, and we didnt.Matthews arrives with a ton of hype in hockeys biggest market, but he has already shown maturity beyond his years.Hes a man, Babcock said. Hes 19 years old but he acts like hes 27. He has great maturity. If you meet his mom and dad, youre thoroughly impressed with the kind of people they are and the respect he has for his mom and sisters, the kind of guy he is.Dont get me wrong, we wouldve drafted him anyway, but that makes him more special.Information from The Associated Press, ESPN Stats & Information and ESPNs Darren Rovell was used in this report. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
