sacks through three gam

EINDHOVEN, Netherlands -- Robert Lewandowski scored both his teams goals Tuesday and hit the woodwork three times as Bayern Munich beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 to secure a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League. Dontari Poe Jersey .The final score was flattering for PSV as Poland striker Lewandowski could, with a bit more luck, have had five goals instead of his brace.Lewandowski had already struck a post and the crossbar with headers before he stroked home a 34th-minute penalty to level the score and reward the visitors for their dominance.The equalizer came 20 minutes after defender Santiago Arias rounded off a lightning counterattack to score his first Champions League goal and give PSV a shock lead.But Lewandowski made sure of Bayerns victory with his fourth strike in as many Champions League matches this season when he turned in a cross by David Alaba in the 74th minute. Ten minutes later, Lewandowski turned neatly in the area but saw his shot hit the underside of the bar.With Group D leader Atletico Madrid beating Rostov 2-1, both Bayern and Atletico are now assured of progressing while PSV and Rostov will fight it out for third place.We can be happy with the final result, but you have to look further, said Dutch winger Arjen Robben, a former PSV star who got a heros welcome on his return to Eindhoven. This evening our level was not enough. You can get into trouble playing like this in the knockout stage.Atletico has 10 points, one more than Bayern. Rostov is third with two points, one more than PSV.Its a shame, but it was always going to be tough in a group like this, said PSV captain Luuk de Jong. Now we have to focus on the third place.PSV coach Phillip Cocu, criticized for starting two weeks ago in Munich with an attacking 4-3-3 formation that was swept aside in a 4-1 defeat, switched to a more defensive 5-3-2 lineup for the home tie, defending in numbers and hoping to hit Bayern on the break.The tactic worked to perfection just once, as PSV cleared a Bayern free kick and rushed out of defense, finding Bart Ramselaar on the right wing. His cross was met with a diving header by Davy Proepper that was well saved by Manuel Neuer but the ball fell to Arias who headed home from close range as Bayerns goalkeeper and defenders appealed in vain for offside.Bayern finally made its overwhelming possession pay in the 34th when Lewandowski calmly slotted in from the penalty spot after Andres Guardado had handled the ball in the area.Earlier, Lewandowski had hit the bar in the 4th and the post on the half hour as Bayern relentlessly battered the PSV defensive wall.Those near misses were forgotten when he grabbed the winner to complete the scoring after Alaba had combined well with substitute Douglas Costa. J.J. Jansen Jersey . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. David Mayo Jersey . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. http://www.cheapjetsjerseyssale.com/?tag=d-j-moore-jersey-sale .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. The Houston Cougars survived Cincinnati on a short week thanks to a stellar performance from quarterback Greg Ward Jr.Unlike the last big Cougars win, however, Ward wont be following that with a week on the sidelines when they travel to San Marcos, Texas, to take on Texas State at Jim Wacker Field at Bobcat Stadium on Saturday night.Ward, who finds himself in the conversation for the Heisman Trophy after passing for 321 yards and two touchdowns in Houstons 33-23 season opening upset of then No. 3-ranked Oklahoma, took a lot of hits in the 40-16 win over the Bearcats last Thursday night.The No. 6 Cougars won despite struggling most of the way, and the lopsided final score doesnt reflect how the game was played. Houston trailed 16-12 early in the fourth quarter before scoring the final 28 points on two Ward touchdown runs and two defensive scores.Credit to the leaders on the team, Cougars coach Tom Herman said. We were down by four points in the fourth quarter, and there wasnt a difference on the sideline as if we were up by 16 on Oklahoma.Ward sat out the Lamar game two weeks ago to rest his shoulder after the victory over Oklahoma. But as Herman noted in his weekly press conference, this weeks opponent, Texas State (1-1), is not Lamar. Its a quality foe that the Cougars cant look past, so Ward will take it easier in practice during the week in order to be ready to go on Saturday.Hes one of the best competitors Ive ever been around, and hes taken a lot of big hits in his day, Herman said. Once he got hit in the shoulder, yeah it hurt, but did his arm fall off? No. Was he able to throw another pass? Yes. That kind of gave him some confidence, like hey what these doctors and coaches have been telling me is true.Ward, who owns a nations best streak of 16 straight wins as a starter, went through a full practice Sunday, including a 7-on-7 session that he threw a bunch and threw it well.Its a volume thing, not what kinds of throws, Herman added. If he feels like its too much theen well settle down, and if he feels like he can handle it well give him everything he can handle. Kyle Love Jersey. It will be a challenging week for the Cougars, and not just because Texas State opened with a victory over Ohio before dropping a decision to Arkansas. Former Houston director of football recruiting Adrian Mayes is now the offensive line coach for coach Everett Withers at Texas State.That will be a big challenge for us, Herman said. We are having to change every signal, call and check. We are trying to get ready to win a game, and yet we are having to spend this amount of time to mask what we are doing. Its not a matter of only changing the plays. Its a matter of what we are calling our plays, how we are communicating and signaling them.Herman and Withers have their own history together, at previous coaching stops at Texas and Ohio State.(We worked together) two years (at Ohio State), and way back when I was a graduate assistant at Texas he was a DB coach there, Herman said. I consider him a close friend. My wife and his wife are really close friends. They got to know each other quite a bit in Columbus and continue to talk to this day. We were excited when Everett got the opportunity to move back to the great state of Texas and excited to see him off to a good start.Texas State opened the season and the Withers era with a 56-54 triple overtime win at Ohio. The Bobcats fell behind 35-0 at halftime in an eventual 42-3 loss at Arkansas last week.Although Ward gets most of the national attention, Houstons defense has been a major reason for the hot start. The Cougars lead the nation in rushing defense, allowing an average of just 38.3 yards per game, and held Oklahomas potent ground game to just 70 yards. Senior linebacker Steven Taylor leads the unit and has 5.5 sacks through three games, as well as an interception return for a touchdown. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys ChinaCheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
