BANGKOK -- There were times when the World Cup qualifier between Thailand and Australia felt like a game of football, and there were other times when it seemed so much more. Air Max 97 Clearance .A day after the end of the official mourning period following the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej -- during which public entertainment and celebrations were banned -- the game was a chance for the Thai public to cheer, chant and celebrate after a month of strictly observed mourning.Most of the fans at Rajamangala Stadium on Tuesday were still dressed in black, and the Thai royal anthem was played and enthusiastically sung by the crowd. There was a minutes silence prior to kick-off, and prior to the game, a group of supporters combined outside the ground to form the Thai numeral for nine, marking the late kings position in the Chakri dynasty.Those formalities completed, the informal and spontaneous outpouring of patriotic support took over, and rarely has the Bangkok stadium heard celebrations as loud as those which greeted Thailands two goals.They were not enough to secure victory, but were sufficient for a 2-2 draw against a team on track for a fourth consecutive World Cup appearance.It was the first point for Thailand in the final stage of Asian qualifying, following four successive losses, and while a place at Russia 2018 remains a long shot, the avoidance of defeat on such an occasion was important.I am disappointed with a draw, Thailand coach Kiatisuk Senamuang said. The players fought 100 percent for this game, but Australia is a very good team.This point we want to give to His Majesty for giving us the spiritual support for this game. I am very happy this point can bring some happiness and a smile to all Thai fans.It was a game decided chiefly from the penalty spot. Australia captain Mile Jedinak slotted two spot kicks -- the first in the ninth minute for a handball and the second in the 65th on a contentious referees call for holding as Australia took a free kick in an attacking position.Thailands opening goal, in the 20th minute, resulted from panicked Australian defending that set up Teerasil Dangda for a tap-in for close range. Thailand went ahead in the 56th with a penalty following a collision between Mathew Leckie and Thai captain Theerathon Bunmathan.Teerasil sent the keeper the wrong way for a short-lived lead that had Thai fans briefly anticipating a memorable victory.Australia coach Ange Postecoglou was frustrated by what he considered two points dropped, but acknowledged Thailand was an inspired team.It was a big occasion for them and they rose to that occasion, Postecoglou said. With the special occasion, we knew they would play with a lot of passion and heart, and they certainly did that. We knew they could be a danger.With the top two teams in both Asian qualifying groups going through to Russia, Australia is in third, a point behind co-leaders Saudi Arabia and Japan. With three of the remaining five games at home -- and one on neutral territory against Iraq -- Postecoglou was confident of Australias chances.Weve had three tough road trips and we havent lost a game, Postecoglou said. The back half of our program is very good, so we can finish strongly. Cheap Air Max 97 Sale . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Cheap Air Max 97 China . "I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. DAVIE, Fla. -- Ryan Tannehill was back at the Miami Dolphins complex Monday, his left knee injury less serious than first feared.The injury was diagnosed as a sprained ACL and MCL, coach Adam Gase said, meaning Tannehill will avoid surgery.It remains unlikely hell play again this season, and Matt Moore will make his first start since 2011 on Saturday against the New York Jets.When Tannehill was hurt Sunday against Arizona, the Dolphins (8-5) feared a torn ACL that would require surgery and a long, arduous rehabilitation. The Dolphins learned the final diagnosis late Sunday.Better than what we thought, Gase said. I was happy for him. Thats a hard injury to come back from and rehab. Its a long, long process.ACL surgery generally requires at least a nine-month recovery. Gase said the Dolphins dont know how long Tannehill will be sidelined by the sprained knee, but its questionable whether he would be available even deep into the postseason.Its not going to be one game, Gase said. It will be longer than that.Tannehill should be available to take part in the Dolphins offseason program, however.In Arizona, Campbell said he spoke with Tannehill by phone on Monday.I reached out and I apologized to him, Campbell said. It definitely wasnt on purpose. I wasnt trying to hurt the guy. Thats not who I am. Ive never been that kind of guy. I never will be that kind of guy. I know how hard people work to play this game.While Tannehill was at the team complex Monday, Moore was absent -- his wife was having their third child. But hell soon be cramming as the new No. 1 quarterback.Matt is going to go hard, teammate Byron Maxwell said. Hes going to go down fighting. Hes not afraid of the moment. Hes ready for it.Tannehill limped out of Sundays win in the third quarter after being hit by defensive tackle Calais Campbell as he released a completion. Miami led 21-9 when Tannehill was hurt and won 26-23 on a last-second field goal.The victory didnt lighten the Dolphins glum mood. Tannehill was red-eyed on the sideline as the game ended and left the stadium on crutches.Weve got to rally and try to finish this thing for him, safety Michael Thomas said. He was having a great season. Everybody was rallying behind him. So its tough.Everybody is emotional about it. But its a next-man-up mentality, and weve just got to find a way to keep this thing rolling.After a slow start when he came off the bencch against Arizona, Moore led a late drive that ended with the game-winning field goal.

He has a 13-12 record as a starter -- giving him a career winning percentage better than Tannehill -- but this week will be the first time Moore has started for a team with a winning record.Moore has 33 touchdown passes, 28 interceptions and a reputation for being an aggressive risk-taker.I know Matt will do whatever we need him to do to win a game, Gase said. I like the fact that hes not afraid to scramble outside the pocket and kind of play a little looser than a lot of coaches like. I like calling plays for him, because you never know what youre going to experience in that play.The new backup quarterback is expected to be rookie Brandon Doughty, a seventh-round draft pick from Western Kentucky who grew up near the Dolphins complex.Tannehill likely finishes 2016 with career highs in passer rating (93.5), completion rate (67.1 percent) and yards per attempt (7.7).It has been his first year working with Gase, a quarterback expert who frequently praised Tannehill for his improvement -- and resilience.I dont know if Ive been around anybody tougher, Gase said. The guy has taken a lot shots since Ive been here, unfortunately. He just keeps bouncing back.On Saturday the Dolphins will also be without center Mike Pouncey, who wont practice this week, Gase said.It will be the fifth game in a row Pouncey has missed because of a hip injury that has limited him to five games this season.--AP Sports Writer Bob Baum in Phoenix contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: and Steven Wine on Twitter: His work can be found at Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
