History-making coach Chan Yuen-ting says it will be her honor to match wits with World Cup-winning coach Luiz Felipe Scolari. Travis Hamonic Jersey .Their first meeting is scheduled for Feb. 22 in the Asian Champions League. It will be in Guangzhou, the southern China city just 75 miles (120 kilometers) from Hong Kong, in front of 40,000 fans, but expected to draw eyes from all over the world.Chan and her Eastern side from Hong Kong will make their league debut against Scolari and his powerhouse Guangzhou Evergrande, a two-time league champion.I am happy to meet Scolari, Chan said. The Asian Champions League is a valuable opportunity for us to learn from opponents like Guangzhou and improve ourselves.The response is typical Chan. She has been grounded and gracious since she was appointed coach of Eastern a year ago, even as her profile, and Easterns, has magnified.In April, she led Eastern to its first Hong Kong Premier League title in two decades, with a game to spare. That made her the first female to coach a professional mens team to a topflight title. She was named Hong Kong coach of the year and, this month, Asian female coach of the year. Eastern was currently second in the premier league.Hong Kong received an automatic entry into the Asian Champions League for the first time, and Eastern drew a tough group: Guangzhou Evergrande, another two-time champ in Suwon Bluewings, and either Urawa Reds, another former champ, or Kawasaki Frontale.We will try very hard to show our quality, Chan said. From the beginning, we expected this. Every game will be very tough for us. We just need to improve and prepare for the games as well as we can.Moya Dodd, vice-president of the Asian Football Confederation and a former Australia womens player, believes Scolari has the most to lose from the matchup with Chan.Gender aside, this is a game between one of club footballs rising powers, and a team that is less resourced and less fancied, Dodd said. On the coaches bench you have a rising star taking on one of footballs old masters, a World Cup winner, no less. Its a great story for the fans, and all the pressure will be on Scolari.Dodd said this was an opportunity for a female coach to, perhaps, break through what she calls the grass ceiling.The closer you get to the field, the harder it is for a woman, she said. Its a positive sign that growing up in the womens game can provide the experience and learning to launch a coaching career in any part of the game, including the Champions League.Chan graduated from a two-year AFC future coaches program in 2012, worked as a data analyst at Hong Kong Pegasus club, was promoted to the managerial staff, and helped the clubs under-18s to win three trophies. She became assistant coach at Southern District, then was hired by Eastern a year ago, at age 27.Chan has a huge following here in Hong Kong, said Mark Sutcliffe, the CEO of the Hong Kong Football Association.She is an inspiring figure ... and the accolades keep pouring in. She seems to be taking it all in her stride and remains humble and grounded.Chan just wants to get on with it.I have received some awards and attention from the world, she said. However, it is not important what people say, I just want to stay humble and work hard and learn to be a good coach for my club.I hope that my football story will encourage women coaches to go for their dream, but I believe that I am not representing anyone. I just need to do my job. Gary Roberts Jersey .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. TJ Brodie Jersey .

Guy like him, well give him as long as possible but if he doesnt play, were very happy with the prep weve had.Green says hell make the final call on Thurstons availability and the clubs pending finals campaign will be a factor in the decision.Big games like us against Melbourne, theyre the games players want to play in, he said.Often youve got to protect the players from themselves, they always want to play.In Thurstons absence, the Cowboys have named Ray Thompson to play alongsiide Queensland State of Origin representative Michael Morgan. Cheap NHL Jerseys. he Storm have named an unchanged line-up from the team that defeated the Sydney Roosters 26-10 to keep the pressure on table-toppers Cronulla.Melbourne defeated the Cowboys earlier in the year by a single point at Suncorp Stadium, and Green admits his team has been planning revenge for some time.The boys have probably had one eye on this contest for a while now so were really excited about the challenge, he said.Them and Cronulla are obviously the two form teams in the competition at the moment.The players recognise who their opposition are and they know its probably a little bigger game than normal.COWBOYS v STORM - Key match stats* North Queensland are seeking a club-record 12th straight win at home* Melbourne have the best defensive record in the NRL and are yet to concede 20 points or more in a match* North Queensland have won just 13 of 44 matches without Johnathan Thurston since 2005 Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
