Este martes finalizó el eliminatorio UNCAF Sub-20 con los cuatro clasificados para el Premundial de Jamaica 2015. El torneo inició el 17 de julio y se disputó en El Salvador, utilizando las sedes del Estadio Cuscatlán de San Salvador y del Estadio de las Delicias de Santa Tecla.

El eliminatorio dejó muy buena impresión por lo mostrado por los jóvenes de las selecciones, principalmente los de Panamá y El Salvador; ambas selecciones fueron las primeras clasificadas, desplegando buen fútbol tanto en defensa como en ataque.

Guatemala y Honduras debieron esperar hasta la última jornada para asegurar su clasificación, mientras que Nicaragua, Belice y Costa Rica se despidieron de toda posibilidad de asistir al Mundial de la categoría. Lo más sorpresivo es la eliminación de Costa Rica, ya que es una selección que siempre está presente, ya sea en los Mundiales juveniles o en las últimas instancias clasificatorias. Aunque Guatemala y Costa Rica empataron con la misma cantidad de puntos, Guatemala clasificó porque ganó la serie.

ICC: AC Milan is Man-Handled by Manchester City

PITTSBURGH[27.7.2014] The game between AC Milan and Manchester City may have been part of the Guinness International Champions Cup, but people would be pardoned for thinking Milan were a club fighting relegation rather than 7-time European Cup winners given their poor performance.

The bad rain did little to deter fans from attending the game at Heinz Field, which had 34,347 fans in attendance. Manchester City made their mark on the game early on, with Stefan Jovetic and Scott Sinclair both scoring picturesque goals within the first 15 minutes. The early lead saw Manchester City’s confidence grow, and the Sky Blues began bossing Milan around the field.

Nine minutes after the second goal, Jesus Navas netted a third one for City from a beautiful volley, much to the chagrin of the rossoneri. This goal was followed by a Kelechi Iheneacho
goal just two minutes later, adding insult to injury for the Italians.

On Sunday, July 27, 18-time Scudetto winners AC Milan will face off against current Premier League Champions Manchester City at Heinz Field Stadium in Pittsburgh, PA. The match, which is part of the International Champions Cup, features one of Italy’s most storied clubs against England’s newly salient Citizens.

Milan head into this game following a disappointing 3-0 loss against Olympiakos. Having finished 8th in Serie A under the tutelage of Clarence Seedorf last season, newly appointed manager Filippo Inzaghi will feel pressured to get some wins under his belt before the beginning of the new season.

Although Mario Balotelli did not feature against Olympiakos amidst speculation that he may end up in North London before next season, those attending the game will want to see him in action. Should Balotelli not feature, fans can expect to see Stephan El Shaarawy, who will want to compete for a starting place after missing most of last season due to injury.
