Lionel Messi is set to take on Neymar at the MCG in a heavyweight clash between Argentina and Brazil. Asics Womens Shoes Rose .The South American giants will reportedly play next June in the SuperClasico de las Americas.The Victorian government is expected to announce the long-planned fixture in the coming weeks, according to News Corp Australia.The report says one of the teams will likely then play the Socceroos in a tune-up for Australias Confederations Cup campaign in Russia.Coach Ange Postecoglou is eager to get in a friendly match after the June 8 World Cup qualifier with Saudi Arabia at Adelaide Oval, and before the national team have to be in Russia on June 15 ahead of their first Confederations Cup game against Germany on June 19.The date of the clash between five-time World Cup winners Brazil and two-time champions Argentina will depend on the MCGs availability during the 2017 AFL season, with matches already scheduled for June 10, 12 and 17.Should it come off, it would pit Barcelona superstars Messi and Neymar against each other.But they wouldnt be the only big names.Argentina also features Manchester City pair Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta, Juventus star Gonzalo Higuain and Barcelonas Javier Mascherano, while Brazil could field Liverpool duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino and Chelseas David Luiz.The nations rarely play each other outside the World Cup qualification cycle but the SuperClasico de las Americas offers a chance to fight for silverware.Created in 2011, the match-up is the successor of the Roca Cup played irregularly between 1914 and 1976, and originally featured two games played in a home-and-away format.Brazil won the first series 2-0 on aggregate before Argentina got revenge in 2012 via a penalty shootout.In 2014, the format was changed to a one-match play-off at a neutral venue, won 2-0 by Brazil in Beijing.A spokesperson for the Victorian government declined to confirm the fixture was in the pipeline, saying: The government has nothing to add to this mornings speculation. Asics Womens Shoes Sale .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. Asics Womens Shoes Cheap . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Before her first appearance for Ohio State in a competitive setting, albeit only a closed-door scrimmage against Louisville in October, Stephanie Mavunga experienced a moment of uncertainty. She looked to her teammates for an answer as the tip approached.They were playing the game in quarters, right?Change is in the details. A transfer from North Carolina, Mavunga sat out the 2015-16 season, the first to utilize quarters. She assured teammates who were both amused and incredulous that she had paid attention the previous season. But, you know, the world looks a bit different from the court.My teammates were laughing at me, Mavunga said.With Ohio State the most notable participant in a phenomenon of player movement, the college basketball season might turn on how comfortably the Buckeyes adjust to a whole lot of change.Ohio State has arguably the nations best player in junior Kelsey Mitchell. The supporting cast was already far from barren, but transfers Mavunga, Sierra Calhoun and Linnae Harper create what on paper looks like a super team as capable as any of stepping into the void left by the departure of Connecticuts senior class and its four national titles.Keeping Mitchell in the state was the first building block, and as Ohio State coach Kevin McGuffs fourth season begins, for the first time, a championship is a realistic objective.It was partly everybody was kind of looking at it [as] UConn and everybody else, McGuff said. And then we were still trying to add the right pieces to where I felt like we had the balance inside-out and the depth to do something like that. Now I think we have the pieces in place.Its obviously extremely difficult to do, but I feel like were one of the teams that have got enough talent and depth and balance that we could make a run at the national championship.The conundrum is that rarely -- maybe never -- has a team with so much proven talent provided so little evidence of how the pieces fit together. Calhoun, Harper, Mavunga and Mitchell have played a combined six and a half college seasons. We know they are excellent. Yet none has played an official college game with any of the others.We got a lot of chemistry-building to do, Mitchell said. Weve got a lot of growing to do, as far as knowing what people can do and what they cant do, where theyre most comfortable and where theyre most uncomfortable. I think its a growing stage for us.Ohio State is not alone in conducting an experiment under these conditions. Once novelties for elite programs, high-profile transfers are rapidly becoming commonplace. When South Carolina visits Columbus on Monday, the Gamecocks will have both Allisha Gray, Mavungas former teammate at North Carolina, and Kaela Davis at their disposal. Baylor is a title favorite in large part because Alexis Jones is settling into her second season in Waco after starting at Duke. That is the same Duke that hopes transfer Lexie Brown can help it bounce back from a disappointing season that ended with Azura Stevens transferring to Connecticut, where she will sit out this season.Why there is so much movement remains a topic of debate. Systemic answers range from a sense of entitlement among a generation raised in the often maligned AAU culture to the increasing empowerment of student-athletes to reject dictatorial coaches.Each player has her own story. Mavunga said she had no regrets about choosing North Carolina or spending two seasons in Chapel Hill and that being so far from her home in Indiana forced her to mature. She said she just didnt feel tthe program, which saw most of her recruiting class transfer, was the best place for her to keep growing. Asics Womens Shoes Blue. The larger debate will continue. That movement is the new reality isnt up for discussion.I think were going to keep seeing it, McGuff said. Its just hard. I think were in a generation when [if] expectations arent met quickly, then kids move on to the next thing. Its not always bad. Its not always bad at all. Ive had plenty of transfers come in, and Ive had some come out. Its just the way it is and every program is. I dont think thats going away anytime soon.The corresponding reality is that programs must incorporate new moving parts alongside returning players and incoming freshmen. Ohio State must do so three times over.Last we saw her, Mavunga averaged 14.4 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game for the Tar Heels. She gives the Buckeyes a true back-to-the-basket post presence to pair with Alexa Harts shot-blocking athleticism. Harper, who will be eligible for the Buckeyes at the end of the fall semester, was a defensive and rebounding standout for Kentucky two seasons ago and the most-used sub on a United States Pan-Am roster that included the likes of Breanna Stewart and Moriah Jefferson. Ranked 16th in her recruiting class by ESPN HoopGurlz, Calhoun started and averaged 10 points per game as a freshman at Duke. Then she left the team at midseason.On top of that, Ohio State added a well-regarded freshman class headlined by 6-foot-4 Tori McCoy, a prep All-American ranked among the top-10 recruits. That leaves the matter of chemistry. To those who believe teams that play well get along well, Mitchell remains the key figure. After leading the nation in scoring as a freshman, she averaged 26.1 points per game as a sophomore. Although a commendably efficient scorer, she attempted 1,308 field goals and 447 free throws in her first two seasons, in each case more than a quarter of the teams total. Yet not just her coach but also some of those who lose sleep about trying to slow her down think she is suited to the task at hand and that the most prolific soloist in the country can be the conductor of a multipiece ensemble.I think one of her greatest strengths, and well find out this year because shes surrounded by a lot of really great players, is her ability to pass the basketball and her ability to see the floor, Michigan coach Kim Barnes Arico said. I think a lot of people see her as a pure scorer because thats what shes had to do for her team the last couple of years. But Ive seen her pass the ball, and she has vision as great as anyone Ive ever seen.For their part, as Mitchell alluded to, the Buckeyes seem to believe that a team plays well when it already has chemistry and common purpose.As talented as UConns been, theyve kind of out-cultured everybody for years, McGuff said. We had to make a lot of progress in that area, and were working on it.That ultimately comes down to the people involved. The transfers arent strangers. All were around a season ago. But like playing by quarters for the first time, its a different experience. Its about Mitchell learning that she and Harper are similarly soft-spoken and that the gregarious Mavunga is not.Different roads led them all to Columbus. Only one road will lead them to Dallas, host of the 2017 Final Four.Im still learning a lot about each and every one of them, Mitchell said. But I wouldnt want them anywhere else.
