TAMPA, Fla. Marcus Sherels Vikings Jersey . -- Yasuhito Endo, Shinji Kagawa and Yoichiro Kakitani scored second-half goals Monday to help Japan warm up for its World Cup appearance with a 3-1 victory over Costa Rica. After Bryan Ruiz scored for Costa Rica in the 31st minute, Japan failed to take advantage of several opportunities before breaking through when Endo scored in the 60th. Kagawa put Japan ahead in the 80th minute, and Kakitani added his goal in injury time before a crowd of 7,106 at Raymond James Stadium. The teams have one more warm-up match in the United States, with Japan facing Zambia in Tampa and Costa Rica meeting Ireland in Philadelphia on Friday. Both teams open their World Cup campaigns on June 14. Japan, preparing for its fifth straight World Cup, will open against Ivory Coast in Group C, while Costa Rica meets Uruguay in Group D. Four years ago, Japan beat Cameroon and Denmark before losing on penalties to Paraguay in the knockout stage of the World Cup. In addition to facing Uruguay, Japan will play Colombia and Greece in the group stage. Italy and England complete the group that includes Costa Rica and Uruguay. Costa Rica opened the scoring when Ruiz scored off a pinpoint cross from Junior Diaz. Costa Rica -- headed to the World Cup for the fourth time -- was unable to put much pressure on Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima after Ruizs goal. Tom Johnson Vikings Jersey .

A Swiss Federal Tribunal ruling published Friday said that FIFAs disputes panel and the Court of Arbitration for Sport correctly imposed the sanction for Nantes enticing Guinea forward Ismael Bangoura to break his contract with Dubai club Al Nasr in January 2012.MOSCOW -- Make room, Carl Lewis. You too, Michael Johnson. Usain Bolt could join your elite company by the time these world championships are finished. The hard-charging, fun-seeking Jamaican will chase after two more world titles this week that would give him eight in his career, tying him with Lewis and Johnson for most all time. These days, Bolt hardly takes a backseat to them, or anyone else. Plus, hes in charge of rescuing a sport thats been recently riddled with doping offences. Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Sherone Simpson all tested positive weeks before the competition. Then, Trinidad and Tobago sprinter Kelly-Ann Baptiste withdrew from the 100 because shes involved in a doping case, her federation said Monday. Another dark cloud hovering over track. "Every time drugs are brought up, its hurtful to the sport. I hate it," said former sprinter Maurice Greene, who has won five world titles. "Track needs stars like Bolt. But hes not the only person in this sport thats a star. We have plenty of stars. But its good that he shows his personality. Hes able to have fun with the crowd. Thats why people gravitate to him. Thats why they love him. "More than that, you need to have great races to overcome all of that (bad) news." Bolts rain-soaked performance Sunday night certainly qualifies as a memorable race. Usually, bolt provides the electricity on the track. This time, Mother Nature took care of it with flashes of lightning going off in the distance. In stormy conditions, Bolt roared back after falling behind Justin Gatlin to recapture his 100 title. Sun, rain, heat, whatever, the conditions really dont matter because the fastest man on the planet always seems in his element whenever he sets foot on the track. "I continue to work on my aim to become a legend by collecting gold medals and athlete of year titles," Bolt said. He may already be there. "For right now, yeah, you have to say he is the best," said Greene, who stood at a booth and signed autographs for nearly an hour, just across the wway from a giant cutout of Bolt that had fans lining up to take photos. Matt Kalil Vikings Jersey. "Look at his race last night: He showed why hes a champion, because hes able to overcome everything and come out with a win. "Bolt has accomplished everything everybody before him has accomplished. So, yeah, of course he is up there (with Lewis and Johnson)." The only thing standing in the way of Bolt and his quest for two more titles may be fatigue. Hes already feeling the strain, saying his legs were quite sore after the 100. "I need some rest," said Bolt, who won the 100 in 9.77 seconds. "I didnt feel up to it. My body wasnt there, but the win is always what I came in for and to regain my title. I did just that so I am happy with myself." This also was a form of redemption, too, considering he false-started during the final in South Korea two years ago. "I wanted to do a better time but was not able to because of the weather," Bolt said of Sundays race. "Not singing in the rain, but running in the rain." The race appeared in doubt by the storm that moved through the area, complete with thunder and lightning, setting the stage for a duel in the downpour. "They wanted an epic race in the rain and they got it," Gatlin said. Did they ever. Just another step closer to obtaining "legend" status for Bolt, whos always talking about that topic. Bolt also has six Olympic titles to go with his world records in the 100 (9.5 and 200 (19.19). As for those weary legs, he has some time to stretch them out and simply relax. Bolt will begin the first round of the 200 on Friday morning, with the final scheduled for the next night. To close out the competition on Sunday, Bolt will take part in the 4x100 relay, where he will try to help the Jamaicans win a third straight title. Win those two events and he will further cement his status. "Look at all the things hes done and hes been able to accomplish a lot," Greene said. "You have to put him in the names of the great ones before him." NFL Jerseys China cheap jerseys ' ' '
