TORONTO - FIFA has attacked another plank in the legal challenge to artificial turf at the Womens World Cup, saying a mens World Cup could be held on artificial surfaces sooner rather than later. http://www.teambrazilsoccer.com/Thiago-Silva-Copa-America-Jersey/ .Secretary-general Jerome Valcke, in an interview on fifa.com, offered his personal guarantee that the playing surfaces at the 2015 tournament in Canada will be of the highest international standard — for artificial turf.Valcke said that FIFA tournament organizers have had the right for some time to use turf provided that it is of the highest quality and the same playing surface is used for all venues and training sites.It could well be that sooner rather than later the mens World Cup will also be played on artificial pitches, he added. The Canadian Soccer Association proposed for the tournament to be played on artificial turf based on the fact that most sporting infrastructure in Canada is on artificial turf, primarily due to the extreme climate in the host country.It would be very difficult to ensure solid natural-grass pitches at all venues.A group of elite female players has launched a human rights complaint in Ontario, arguing that tournament organizers are discriminating against women by making them play on artificial turf while the mens showcase is played on natural grass surfaces.A lawyer for the women said Valcke was being disingenuous in his comments about the mens event possibly being played on grass.The 2018 and 2022 mens World Cups are already slated for grass so, by soon, FIFA means 2026, Hampton Dellinger said. Obviously, FIFAs definition of soon is different from mine or any dictionarys.Even in 2026, Ill believe the mens World Cup will be played on turf when Im hopefully still around to see it. And Mr. Valckes excuse of Canadas extreme climate is astounding given that Russia and Qatar boast their own equally (or even more) difficult weather conditions. The natural grass pitch at BMO Field in Toronto certainly appears to do just fine during the summer months when the World Cup is staged.The FIFA Womens World Cup Canada 2015 is slated to be played on artificial turf at venues in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Moncton.Valcke says playing the Canadian tournament on artificial turf is due to conditions here.As has already been explained, this is not a question of money, or of differences between men’s and women’s events, but it is a matter of the natural conditions in Canada, he said. We want to guarantee consistent top-level playing conditions for all 24 teams during the event, both in the official stadiums and at the training sites. This has been the sole reason behind the decision to play on artificial turf from Day 1.He cited ongoing studies of the turf to ensure that it is of the necessary quality.We fully understand that the players who have qualified for the Women’s World Cup want to ensure that they have the best conditions to perform well. This is a goal they share with FIFA.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter. http://www.teambrazilsoccer.com/Alex-Sandro-Copa-America-Jersey/ .com) - Eric Fehr and Marcus Johansson each registered a pair of goals, as Washington spoiled the head coaching debut of Peter Horachek by picking up a 6-2 victory in Toronto on Wednesday. http://www.teambrazilsoccer.com/Customized/ . "Right now were kind of looking at him at the end of the rotation right now," said pitching coach Pete Walker. "Not indicative of how hes doing or how hes feeling. Its just, it seems like the spot we want him right now. http://www.teambrazilsoccer.com/David-Luiz-Copa-America-Jersey/ . Hattestad managed to avoid the carnage midway through the mens final, as a crash took out three skiers, essentially leaving two men vying for gold. The Norwegian posted a time of 3:38.39, outlasting Swedens Teodor Peterson, who took silver with a time of 3:39.RALEIGH, N.C. -- With his latest milestone within reach, Alex Ovechkin caught himself pressing and overthinking his play. All of a sudden, his path to history was clear. Ovechkin scored his 400th career goal into an empty net after the Washington Capitals had three power-play goals in the second period of a 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night. "I had a couple of chances to score, and they were good ones, but maybe I tried to make more moves than I usually do," Ovechkin said. "(An) empty-netter is (an) empty-netter. Of course I (thought) about it, but its over and its time to move on." Troy Brouwer, Marcus Johansson and John Carlson scored with the man advantage and Nicklas Backstrom assisted on all four goals to help the second-place Capitals win for the fifth time in their last seven games. Ovechkins empty-netter with 24.5 seconds left in his 634th career game made him the sixth-fastest player in NHL history to reach No. 400 and the seventh active player with that many. "As we all know, hes a pretty good goal-scorer," Backstrom said. "Its always fun to see a player accomplish something big and I think 400 goals in however many games he has, its great. We all know hes a great player." Jordan Staal and Riley Nash scored for Carolina while Cam Ward stopped 25 shots. The Hurricanes had earned at least a point in six of their previous seven games. But theyve dropped four of five with the loss to the Caps. "Five-on-5, we were all over them," Staal said. "We were the better team, 5-on-5. But three power-play goals, you cant let that happen. Thats not good enough, obviously, and thats how you lose games." Washingtons Philipp Grubauer matched a season high with 39 saves -- and got some help from the choppy ice after Alexander Semins shot with about 6 minutes left trickled just wide of the net. The Capitals have the leagues second-best power-play unit with a success rate of nearly 25 per cent. They converted all three of their chances in the second. ";You dont want to have to rely on it, but whenever its going to power you through games, absolutely you want to rely on it," Brouwer said of the power play. http://www.teambrazilsoccer.com/Pele-Copa-America-Jersey/. A fortunate bounce helped the Capitals reclaim the lead at 3-2 with 4:31 left in the period: Mike Green broke his stick while dribbling a shot up the middle that clipped Brouwer on its way past Ward. "When it comes slower, obviously I get a better touch on it," Brouwer said. "I had my stick halfway up my body thinking it was going to be a higher shot because thats where he usually likes to shoot. Its almost a weird adjustment where you dont ever practice having to put your stick back down on the ice." That capped a big period for the Capitals power play. Johansson tied it 41 seconds into the second when he stuffed the puck between Wards left leg and the post. Carlson put the Capitals up 2-1 with 11:26 left -- and just 14 seconds into a holding minor on Tuomo Ruutu -- when his straightaway blast from just inside the blue line got past Ward. Carolina, which has the leagues third-worst power play, made it 2-all 2:42 later by scoring on the man advantage, with Nash making the most of Andrej Sekeras rebound. But it couldnt convert late after Carlson went off for hooking with 4:50 to play, despite peppering Grubauer with a barrage of shots from close range. The Hurricanes were playing for the first time since Dec. 14, when they wrapped up a four-point, four-game western swing with a win at Phoenix. Staal put the Hurricanes up 1-0 with 2:48 left in the first when he scored on a one-touch pass from Semin, who played seven years with the Capitals before signing with Carolina in July 2012. "We did a good job of getting after him and getting shots and getting opportunities," Staal said. "We just didnt bury them." NOTES: The Hurricanes scratched D Mike Komisarek (lower-body injury) after activating him from injured reserve earlier in the day. ... Semins point was his first since his Dec. 12 return from a concussion that cost him 12 games. NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
