CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship: Mexico Seize Espinho Berth

Having missed out on a place at Tahiti 2013, according to Runme, Mexico strode to glory at the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship to ensure a return to the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup stage in fine style, more football news on Runeme.com.

Portugal 2015 will be their fourth trip to the global finals and El Tri will be joined on the sands of Espinho by CONCACAF runners-up Costa Rica, returning to the competition for the first time since their debut at Dubai 2009.

The regional qualifying tournament, newly expanded to 16 nations, of which eight were first-timers, was played in El Salvador – with the hosts among the favourites for the title. Yet they could not live up to that tag, finishing down in third and missing out on a spot at the Beach Soccer World Cup for the first time since 2007. With USA coming home in fourth, this meant that neither of the North, Central American and Caribbean Zone’s representatives at Tahiti 2013 will travel to Portugal 2015.

CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship: Mexico Seize Espinho Berth

Despite only boasting four players with previous Beach Soccer World Cup qualifying experience, Mexico were impressive throughout their march to a third continental crown, all of which have come under the coaching of Ramon Raya. Their main strengths included an attack packed with variety, which enabled El Tri to finish as the tournament’s third-leading scorers (33 goals) even without any players in the competition’s top-ten scorers’ chart. Furthermore, Raya’s charges boasted the event’s meanest defence, shipping just nine goals in six games.

In fact, three of those strikes came in their 8-3 opening win over Turks and Caicos Islands, with just one more conceded in the subsequent first-phase wins over Guadalupe (8-1) and Trinidad and Tobago (4-0), the latter offering Los Aztecas their sternest early test. After overcoming a spirited Guatemala side 5-2 in the quarter-finals, Mexico needed to dig deep to sink neighbours USA 4-3 in the last four, a win that guaranteed their ticket to Espinho.

Another of Mexico’s qualities, opportunism, came to the fore in the final versus Costa Rica, with El Tri snatching a goal late in the first period and another early in the second to smooth the path towards a 4-0 win. They thus reclaimed a continental title they had relinquished two years earlier, when exiting at the semi-final stage against El Salvador.

Seven clubs that Javier Hernandez would interested in

Runme – Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer with seven clubs eyeing the future of the attacker, who is not having a very good season on loan with Real Madrid, more about Javier Hernandez on Runeme.com.

The Mexican was not utilised much by David Moyes last season, and was not in the immediate plans of incoming manager Louis van Gaal after pre-season with Chicharito making two appearances for United; the 2-1 home defeat to Swansea City and the humiliating 4-0 defeat away to MK Dons in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Just over a fortnight later, Hernandez made his Real Madrid debut after securing a season long loan deal, which makes you wonder why he chose the Spanish giants based on the fact there are many world-class players vying for starting places, with Hernandez no way near as prolific in-front of goal as French striker Karim Benzema.

Seven clubs that Javier Hernandez would interested in

Of course, Real Madrid would sign him purely to sell shirts bearing the strikers name in his native Mexico, which will be a top seller, as Manchester United shirts bearing the name ‘Chicharito’ were a top seller when the Mexican signed for the club in the summer of 2010, just before the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Hernandez shot to fame in his debut season at United, scoring 20 goals in 45 appearances, playing in 75% of the clubs fixtures. During the 2011/12 season, the Mexican scored only 12 goals in 36 appearances, playing in 66% of the clubs fixtures, which is a decline from his debut season.

However, in the 2012/13 season, Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season and also the season United won their twentieth league title, Hernandez scored 18 goals in 36 appearances, again appearing in 66% of the clubs fixtures that season, even after the arrival or summer marquee signing Robin van Persie, who scored 30 goals that season in all competitions.

During David Moyes’ only season in charge of United, Hernandez fell down the pecking order, scoring nine goals in 35 appearances (which was 63% of the clubs fixtures that season), one less that the previous two seasons, but he only started in 12 matches, 10 short of the previous two seasons. ell.

Spotify app brings custom music to FIFA 15

According to Runme‘s latest FIFA 15 News, we can know that spotify has just launched its first ever console app – exclusive to the PlayStation 4 – and it’s got us rather excited.

Replacing Sony’s own Music Unlimited service, the app itself is integrated into the PS4 console at system level, which means that you can use it to play music in the background of every single PS4 game.

That means you can play your own music (including custom playlists) while still enjoying in-game dialogue and sound effects.

Playlist sharing is also supported, which means we expect to see an influx of gamer-created custom playlists for different games making the rounds on the interwebs very soon.

Spotify app brings custom music to FIFA 15

 

Users can also control music playback from a micro-player that pops up in the options menu, as well as from an iOS or Android device, running the Spotify app.

The app itself is compatible with both free and premium Spotify accounts, serving up access to the streaming services 30 million-strong track library.

PlayStation has exclusive access to Spotify’s new apps service for the foreseeable future, though what that means for Xbox One owners exactly remains to be seen.

Where can Zsolt Kalmar find his inspiration

Runeme – Andres Iniesta controlled the ball with his right foot, took a couple of steps forward and struck a fierce shot into the bottom corner. More informations on Runeme.com.

That sweetly taken goal, which came at the end of a desperately tight 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Final against the Netherlands, sealed Spain’s first world title and secured Iniesta a lasting place in footballing folklore. It also inspired a 15-year-old Hungarian by the name of Zsolt Kalmar, watching the game a continent and 13,000 kilometres away.

Five years on from that memorable night in Johannesburg, Kalmar is preparing to bring his own skills to bear on the global stage, as part of a Hungary side aiming to spring a surprise at the FIFA U-20 World Cup New Zealand 2015.

Voicing his admiration for his Spanish role model, the Hungarian youngster said: “His technique is amazing and he comes up with solutions to all sorts of problems in the blink of an eye.”

Where can Zsolt Kalmar find his inspiration

A busy year
As his side’s skipper and playmaker, Kalmar is sure to be in the thick of things when Hungary begin their tilt at glory in New Zealand, where they will take on Brazil, Korea DPR and Nigeria in the first round.

Daunting though it is, he cannot wait for the challenge to begin: “If we do our job properly, we’ll have our chances against all three opponents. It won’t be easy, though. We’re going to give our all and we’ll see where that takes us.”

The South Americans, five-time winners of the event, will start as hot favourites to top the section. There is little to choose between the other three members of the group, however, with Hungarian hopes further fired by the fact that they took third place on the podium on their last appearance in the competition, at Egypt 2009, their best finish in their five visits to the tournament.

The trip to New Zealand promises to be yet another big step forward for the promising Kalmar, who won his first full international cap in May 2014 and then helped his country book their U-20 world finals place at UEFA European Under-19 Championship held in Hungary a couple of months later. Those achievements were then followed by a move to German second division side RB Leipzig.

EA Sports take actions to FIFA 15 Coin Sellers

Runeme – There was a record straight on why they have made so many changes to FIFA 15 FUT recently from EA Sports again, which is not really well to FIFA 15 Coins Sellers. More infromation about this event on Runeme.com, you will know everything you want.

The fact of the matter, is that EA are doing it for the balance of the game as they say these changes will ultimately help to discourage exploiters from ruining the game.

EA Sports take actions to FIFA 15 Coin Sellers

By introducing price ranges to FIFA 15, they say that it will create a fair and secure environment for all players – and we agree that something drastic had to be done to stop it getting out of control.

Despite that, we can still see some mindless FIFA 15 fans from the UK who continue to hurl some disturbing abuse at the developer – simply because they are upset that they can’t cheat the system any more.

Are you still unhappy with EA’s changes to FIFA 15 FUT? Give us your thoughts on how you feel the system is now, a week after EA introduced the Price Range changes.

The former Manchester United manager took a seat high in the stands

930.0x524.0

The former Manchester United manager took a seat high in the stands at the Anoeta and smiled as he accepted the offer of a crisp from one of the home supporters. He was far from happy with what was happening on the pitch below, though. Having lost the first leg 1-0, Moyes’ men needed to win to progress.  So when you have some FIFA 15 coins, then you can play well in FIFA 15.

Carlos Vela’s opener had been cancelled out by a stunning shot from Gerard Moreno and Giovani Dos Santos then put Villarreal 2-1 up on the night. Esteban Granero equalised for Real 15 minutes from time, but soon after Moyes then lost his temper and was shown a red card. As Moyes watched from above, Mateo Musacchio was sent off for Villarreal, but the damage had already been done and the Yellow Submarine went through with a 3-2 aggregate win.

Villarreal will play Getafe in the quarter-finals after they beat Almeria 1-0 on Wednesday night. Alvaro Vazquez rounded Julian with 16 minutes left to give Getafe a 2-1 aggregate victory.

Athletic Club also moved into the last eight after scraping through on away goals against Celta Vigo. Xabier Etxeitia scored an own goal just after half-time and Fabian Orellana converted a penalty to put Celta 2-0 up on the night and level at 4-4 on aggregate. But Eduardo Berizzo’s men could not find a third so they crashed out of the competition.

In Wednesday’s late match, Sevilla hammered Andalusian neighbours Granada 4-0 to progress to a quarter-final meeting with Espanyol. Kevin Gameiro scored twice while Iago Aspas and Denis Suarez also found the net to give the Nervionenses a 6-1 aggregate win.

Mikel San Jose pulled a goal back in the 73rd minute

Barcelona produced one of their best performances of the season on Sunday night to beat Spanish La Liga hampions Atletico Madrid 3-1 at the Nou Camp – and move within a point of leaders Real Madrid. And you can buy FIFA 15 coins to take part in team taht you like to play.

Neymar put the hosts ahead after 12 minutes and Luis Suarez doubled their advantage before the break. Mario Mandzukic pulled one back for Diego Simeone’s side after Lionel Messi had given away a penalty, but the Argentinian sealed the points for the Catalan outfit late on with a close-range finish.

Elsewhere, Sevilla climbed up to fourth place thanks to a 2-0 win at Almeria. Vicente Iborra opened the scoring for the visitors in the 58th minute and Coke wrapped up the points with Sevilla’s second goal five minutes later.

The result put Unai Emery’s side two points behind third-placed Atletico, while Almeria remained just two points clear of the bottom three.

Fran Rico rescued a much-needed point as his Granada side claimed a 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad at Los Carmenes. Carlos Vela handed the visitors the lead by converting a penalty ten minutes before the break but Rico equalised, also from the spot, deep into the second half.

The point left Granada two points from safety at the bottom, while David Moyes’ side moved up a position to 12th – but just two points behind ninth-placed Celta Vigo.

Elche moved off the foot of the standings courtesy of a 2-1 victory at Athletic Bilbao. Victor Rodriguez put the visitors ahead in the 17th minute at San Mames and Faycal Fajr doubled their advantage eight minutes into the second half.

Mikel San Jose pulled a goal back in the 73rd minute but that was as good as it got for the hosts, as Elche – thrashed 5-0 by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey in midweek and beset by financial troubles – held on for only their third win in La Liga this term. 

 

Loic Remy insists Chelsea remain on course to make a clean sweep

Loic Remy insists Chelsea remain on course to make a clean sweep of all the major prizes despite their spluttering form over the festive period. Of course, you can also make a clean sweep of all the major prizes wth FIFA 15 coins in FIFA 15.

Jose Mourinho’s side allowed second placed Manchester City to draw level on points with them at the top of the Premier League after a draw at Southampton and a 5-3 defeat at Tottenham. A 3-0 victory over Watford last weekend secured their place in the FA Cup fourth round, but it took second-half substitutes Diego Costa and Willian to ignite a flat performance.

With critics suggesting Chelsea are beginning to lose momentum in their bid to win the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup, French striker Remy hit back ahead of the Blues’ home fixture against managerless Newcastle on Saturday.

“The mood is really positive. We are still focused on all the targets. Every team will be in trouble at some time and I hope ours is behind us now with the last two games,” Remy told Standard Sport.

“There is no problem inside the camp, the players are still happy at training. We have shown everyone that we can react after two bad results. Was our confidence badly affected by what happened at Tottenham? No. We are still top of the league.”

James Milner has challenged City to seize the initiative in the title race when they face struggling Everton. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are behind Chelsea only on alphabetical order after a run of 13 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Every year the game has glitches and problems

FIFA’s dominance means they must have the cream of the crop working for them, right? Wrong. Every year the game has glitches and problems that, to a less than expert gamer even, look simple to eradicate. All this before the players’ ratings are taken into consideration. Do you have a expert gamer with enough FIFA 15 coins in FIFA 15 to play with your best friends or your family.

8 FIFA’s dominance means mistake

Of course, a dodgy looking player rating isn’t entirely EA’s fault. A player can rope them in with a string of fine displays before going on the most barren of spells that leaves fans and pundits bewildered.

These players, that have often just secured a big move after becoming too ‘good’ for their old club, make chairman, managers, supporters and game developers look like morons. It’s a weird food-chain of unfulfilled promise.

Lionel Messi – 93
The man who has been the face of the FIFA games for the last few years is overrated in FIFA 15. There can’t be any denying it.

For at least a year now, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has had the better of the Argentine in almost every facet of the game. Ronaldo has scored more goals and won more cups.

However, Lionel did outshine Cristiano at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil but even so, that’s not worthy of having a better rating than the current Ballon d’Or winner.
