Aspiring Socceroos are seizing a rare extended opportunity to impress coach Ange Postecoglou ahead of Tuesdays World Cup qualifier in Thailand, uncapped midfielder Jimmy Jeggo says. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .The Australian team has been in Bangkok since Sunday and have been training under the watchful eye of Postecoglou, who opted for a week-long camp instead of organising a friendly before next weeks clash at the Rajamangala National Stadium.It is a luxury rarely afforded to the Socceroos, who are used to dealing with tight schedules and limited preparation time before fixtures.But for players like Austria-based Jeggo, and the seven others in the squad with six or fewer international caps, its a chance to jam his foot in the selection door.The last camp was a lot of travelling, there wasnt much time in between games, so there wasnt much training or time to impress, Jeggo said.That was one of the big things getting called up for this camp - its a chance to have a bit of time on the training pitch and try and impress the boss.Everyones got a similar idea, trainings been really intense and of a really good standard.Jeggo faces a difficult task given the extent of Australias stacked midfield, but other inexperienced players are likely to take on prominent roles against Thailand.One-cap striker Jamie Maclaren is expected to start up front in the absence of Tomi Juric and Tim Cahill, while Josh Risdon (three caps) and Milos Degenek (four) will compete for the vacant right fullback position.The Socceroos, currently second in Group B, are warm favourites to account for Thailand, who are yet to open their account in this stage of World Cup qualification.Conditions in Bangkok are hot, wet and humid, and Jeggo admits it would be difficult to adjust were it not for the training camp.Its obviously different. Its been really wet here, the pitches are quite heavy and it takes a little bit out of you, he said.Its something you need to get accustomed to but weve got a long lead-in to the game, most boys have had three or four sessions and you start to get used to the conditions fairly quickly.Wholesale Mets Jerseys .

HARTFORD, Conn. -- A former UConn soccer player who lost her scholarship after giving the middle finger to a television camera said she is suing the school, calling her punishment excessive.Noriana Radwan, who now plays for Hofstra, held a news conference Monday in Newburgh, New York. Her lawyer said the lawsuit would be filed later in the day in U.S. District Court in Connecticut.Radwan made the obscene gesture to an ESPNU camera while celebrating with teammates after the Huskies beat the University of South Florida 3-2 on penalty kicks in the 2014 American Athletic Conference championship game.Coach Len Tsantiris initially suspended Radwan from the 2014 NCAA Tournament and issued a statement apologizing to the conference, USF and those who watched the game on television.In her federal lawsuit, a draft of which was given to The Associated Press, Radwan alleges that after the publicity died down, she was stripped of her scholarship midway through the school year without due process for what the coach described as serious misconduct.Radwan said she wrote a letter of apology to UConn officials after the incident, which the school never acknowledged. She also apologized Monday.I did not intend to offend anyone. I was making a celebratory statement that was seriously misinterpreted and misjudged, Radwan said in a prepared statement. I loved UConn, but I lost faith in it as an institution when it allowed my scholaarship to be illegally taken away so abruptly and crassly in the middle of the school year, violating all trust I had. Cheap Mets Jerseys. She is seeking monetary damages.What she really wants is to make sure something like this does not happen to any other young woman, Greg Tarone, her lawyer said.Tarone also said that while Radwans offense was regrettable, it hardly rises to the level of serious misconduct, and the punishment was much harsher than what male athletes at the school have received for more serious offenses.He said a UConn football player, offensive lineman Brian Cespedes, was not even suspended from his team after being arrested Dec. 10 on misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a September incident that was not public at the time.Its clear from the information Ive gathered that there have been many other incidents of much more serious misconduct and nobody lost a scholarship over it, Tarone said.UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said the school has not seen the lawsuit and cannot comment on it because of federal privacy laws.Radwan, a midfielder, played in nine games for the Huskies as a freshman. She did not have a goal.She transferred to Hofstra, where she is on a partial athletic scholarship. She started 17 games this past season, scoring six goals and adding an assist. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
