Darcy Moores nomination as a Rising Star contender this week has again dragged into the spotlight the vexed question of the AFLs father-son rule. Lonzo Ball Womens Jersey .Moore, 20, the son of Magpie champion and dual Brownlow Medallist, Peter, was nominated for the award on the back of about 40 minutes play at the weekend, but his first half against West Coast was so gobsmackingly impressive that he got the judges nod.His emergence as one of the games most promising youngsters means Collingwood has again hit the jackpot with the father-son rule.Moore follows in a long line of black-and-white family success stories, which have included David Clokes three boys, including Travis, and Ray Shaws sons, Heath and Rhyce.In fact, the Pies have arguably done better out of the rule than every other club with the exception of Geelong, whove managed to land the rather impressive trio of Gary Ablett, Matthew Scarlett and Tom Hawkins, and Essendon, who count Dustin Fletcher, Jobe Watson and Joe Daniher among their famous father-son alumni.This rule was introduced more than 60 years ago to bring back some romance into football by ensuring the bloodlines of champion players -- the fan favourites -- remained at the same club. Dynasties would flourish as club legends begat new generations of boy wonders.For that reason, most fans, coaches and recruiting officers love the guideline.After all, which Essendon supporter doesnt want to see reincarnated versions of Ken Fletcher and Timmy Watson running around in the red and black? Which Tigers fan could face seeing Matthew Richardson in colours other than those worn by his dad, Bull?Likewise with Jack Silvagni, the son of fullback-of-the-century Steve, who was in turn the son of Sergio -- the bandy-legged Carlton legend of the 1960s. Lygon St would have revolted had young Jack ended up in a guernsey that was any other colour than navy blue.Others, however, are not so enamoured with it.For all the romance of the father-son rule, it remains an impediment to what many believe needs to become an imperative in the game -- a pure and uncompromised draft.(The current rules state that a player qualifies for the father-son rule, and can nominate which AFL clubs he joins, if his father played more than 100 games with that club. But clubs who choose to draft sons of guns have to pay a market rate for them by giving up draft picks.)Add to the mix the New South Wales and Queensland academies, designed in part to fast-track local talent, such as the highly-rated Isaac Heeney to the Sydney Swans in one instance, and there remains considerable disquiet that the pathway to League football remains compromised.On top of that, there is a huge element of luck associated with the rule.While Geelong, Essendon and Collingwood have benefitted enormously, other clubs -- including Hawthorn, oddly, and North Melbourne -- have diddly squat to show for it. (Although perhaps we shouldnt feel too sorry for the Hawks given they traded Josh Kennedy to Sydney after 13 games and have watched him become one of the games elite in-and-under midfielders.)Three of the games greatest players - Leigh Matthews (2), Wayne Carey (2) and Tony Lockett (4) - have produced eight daughters between them but no sons. Which, of course, is absolutely no help at all to their respective teams, Hawthorn, North Melbourne and St Kilda/Sydney, under the father-son guidelines.While the leagues motives in introducing the rule were well meaning, by some quirk of fate it seems to have had the effect of favouring the strong and wealthy clubs (with the exception of Hawthorn) while doing little to help the small and impoverished.In fact, theres a strong argument to say the rule has sometimes meant the difference between some clubs winning premierships and being also-rans.Does anyone seriously imagine Geelong would have won its last three premierships without Matthew Scarlett, the premier fullback of his era, and Gary Ablett (for two of the three, anyway)? Would the Cats have prevailed over Collingwood in 2011 without Tom Hawkins who almost single-handedly carried them over the line following James Podsiadlys injury?And how pivotal were Cloke and Shaw -- highlighted by his game-turning goal square smother of Nick Riewoldt -- in the Pies grand final win in 2010?What will grate the other 16 clubs is that Collingwood and Geelong appear to have more talent ready to emerge from the father-son production line.Callum Brown and Josh Daicos, the sons of Magpie legends Gavin and Peter respectively, are nearing draft age and showing promising signs. The Pies do not have a first-round pick after last years Adam Treloar trade but must decide whether they want to take either or both of them in Novembers draft.The Cats, meanwhile, have four possible father-son recruits on their radar for the 2018 draft: Billy Brownless 16-year-old son, Oscar; Garry Hockings son Lochlan; David Menschs son Baxter and the son of ex-Geelong and North Melbourne wingman Robert Scott, Bailey.Moores Rising Star nomination this week has brought into sharp focus the vagaries of the father-son concept wh ich is threatening to have an impact on the competition far greater than its designers could ever have imagined.In a league where salary caps, player drafts and footy department expenditure are all monitored and tweaked by the AFL so the playing field remains as level as possible, the father-son rule remains the outlier -- the one variable that can turn pedestrian teams into world-beaters.

Lonzo Ball White Jersey. The tight affair was not surprising. Defensive-oriented Costa Rica scored one goal or fewer in five of its previous six Gold Cup games, and permitted no more than one goal in eight of the previous nine. This was the fourth time the teams have played in the knockout stage of the Gold Cup. Honduras has won each time. A scoreless first half was marked by the yellow card received by Osman Chavez of Honduras, who slammed into goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton. After the collision, Pemberton grabbed his knee and remained on the ground for several minutes before returning to his position. Costa Rica took only two shots before halftime, none of them on goal. Honduras took only one shot on goal during the first 45 minutes.

SEATTLE -- Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels dodged another disastrous moment when the 25-year-old MVP candidate came out of a Wednesday night traffic accident unscathed. Sidney Jones Womens Jersey .For the Seattle Mariners, who host the Angels in a three-game series beginning Friday night, a recent road trip also felt like a car wreck.While Trout and the Angels (59-64) let go of their postseason hopes a long time ago, the surprising Mariners have found a way to stay in the wild-card race for most of the season. Eight losses in nine games have put Seattle (68-65) four games back in a crowded race for the final American League wild-card spot, so it probably wont be long before the Mariners are just playing for pride again.Coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of AL West-leading Texas, the Mariners saw their slim hopes of a division title go up in smoke and are calling in the firetrucks in terms of the AL wild-card race. Wednesdays 14-1 loss to the Rangers in the series finale felt like a splash of gasoline on a fire that had been burning for most of Seattles 1-6 road trip.It was a rough trip, Mariners manager Scott Servais said after the loss and a series that saw Texas outscore Seattle 29-11. There is no doubt.Ace Felix Hernandez got touched up in the finale, another hit to a pitching staff that has seen veteran Hisashi Iwakuma fall on hard times and southpaw James Paxton get slowed by a torn fingernail.No Seattle starter has had a rougher recent stretch than rookie Ariel Miranda, a 27-year-old left-hander who was acquired for veteran Wade Miley at the trade deadline but wasnt officially added to the full-time rotation until last week. Seattles decision to DFA veteran Wade LeBlanc left Miranda, who is listed as Fridays probable starter, as a permanent member of the rotation -- then he struggled in four innings of work during a 9-3 loss to the White Sox over the weekend.Thursdays roster expansion didnt provide much help to the struggling rotation, as Seattle activated veteran reliever Evan Scribner and added outfielder Ben Gamel in a trade with the Yankees.The Angels could also make a series of post-Sept. 1 moves, but the most important one was the move Los Angeles didnt have to make. Trout was reportedly involved in a three-car accident after Wednesdays game but came away injury-free.Angels general manager Billy Eppler said in a prepared statement late Wednesday night that he had spoken with Trout, who said he feels fine, but no update Thursday was available as to Trouts status for the upcoming series.That Trout was not seriously hurt comes as a huge sigh of relief to an Angels team thats well out of the postseason hunt but could still end up having the AL MVP. Trout, despite his teams struggles, is having another banner year as he ranks among the ALs top five in batting (.319), runs (102) and stolen bases (21). His .999 OPS ranks second to Bostons David Ortiz (1.022), while Trout has the ALs best WAR at 8.9.His Angels have actually been playing pretty well as of late, as they carry a five-game winning streak into Seattle. Left-hander Brett Oberholtzer (3-2, 5.165 ERA) is scheduled to make his second start as an Angel on Friday after being claimed off waivers from Philadelphia. The former Houston Astros pitcher has a 4-0 record and a 0.75 ERA in four career appearances against Seattle, including an inning of relief for the Angels last month.Los Angeles could also be using a new closer in this series, as Fernando Salas was traded to the Mets on Thursday.

Seattles decision to DFA veteran Wade LeBlanc left Miranda, who is listed as Fridays probable starter, as a permanent member of the rotation -- then he struggled in four innings of work during a 9-3 loss to the White Sox over the weekend.Thursdays roster expansion didnt provide much help to the struggling rotation, as Seattle activated veteran reliever Evan Scribner and added outfielder Ben Gamel in a trade with the Yankees.The Angels could also make a series of post-Sept. 1 moves, but the most important one was the move Los Angeles didnt have to make. Trout was reportedly involved in a three-car accident after Wednesdays game but came away injury-free.Angels general manager Billy Eppler said in a prepared statement late Wednesday night that he had spoken with Trout, who said he feels fine, but no update Thursday was available as to Trouts status for the upcoming series.That Trout was not seriously hurt comes as a huge sigh of relief to an Angels team thats well out of the postseason hunt but could still end up having the AL MVP. Trout, despite his teams struggles, is having another banner year as he ranks among the ALs top five in batting (.319), runs (102) and stolen bases (21). His .999 OPS ranks second to Bostons David Ortiz (1.022), while Trout has the ALs best WAR at 8.9.His Angels have actually been playing pretty well as of late, as they carry a five-game winning streak into Seattle. Left-hander Brett Oberholtzer (3-2, 5.165 ERA) is scheduled to make his second start as an Angel on Friday after being claimed off waivers from Philadelphia. The former Houston Astros pitcher has a 4-0 record and a 0.75 ERA in four career appearances against Seattle, including an inning of relief for the Angels last month.Los Angeles could also be using a new closer in this series, as Fernando Salas was traded to the Mets on Thursday. Salas had taken over for Joe Smith, who had taken over for injured closer Huston Street before being dealt to the Chicago Cubs at the trade deadline.

Umar Gul, the Pakistan fast bowler, has rued what he has termed a lack of trust from the selectors for leaving him out of the squad for the ongoing tour of England. Adidas Nino Niederreiter Jersey . In a strongly worded interview with Dawn, he said a double-standard policy on fitness had led to his omission from the 2015 World Cup squad. His outburst has upset the selectors, but they have urged him to stay in contention by playing domestic cricket.Gul, 32, did not make either the final squad for the England tour or the list of players called up for a national training and skills camp in Abbottabad and Lahore. He has been in and out of the side since missing large parts of 2013 and 2014 with a knee injury and subsequent rehabilitation following surgery in Australia. He last played for Pakistan in the second T20I of their tour of New Zealand in January.Look, Im not saying that they should play me, Gul said. But at least treat my case on the same level as of others. Usually, its not in my nature to speak out my mind. But when people start rating me as a discard then it hurts a lot. I have had fair share of injuries during my long international career. Just tell which fast bowler doesnt get injured? This is part and parcel of cricket.However, some people [in the cricket board] make you a fool by jumping to the conclusion that so and so individuals playing career at the international level is over. And what is more annoying is that when you confront them theyll act as if nothing has happened and will try to be as supportive as they can but the same people will form different opinion behind your back.Gul said he had met the selectors fitness requirements ahead of the 2015 World Cup, and was puzzled by his non-selection.I was aghast when I found out that the parameter for fitness for the 2015 World Cup was set at 60 points. And yet I was not good enough to be considered [for selection] despite recording 62 points. Somebody in the PCB must be honest enough to explain this double-standard policy.Now I realize that sometime just being fit is not enough to be inducted because the trust is not there. Being the senior-most fast bowler, there was no way they [selectors] could have sidelined me the way they did. They were not willing to trust me as a player. In the last season I had rediscovered my rhythm and felt extremely fit to reclaim my Pakistan spot, but the selectors still chose to ignore me.Pakistans bowling attack seems to have come out of a long transition period, with Mohammad Amirs reintegration lending it a settled look. Other fast bowlers have leapfrogged Gul and Junaid Khan in the pecking order, largely due to concerns over their fitness, with both troubled by recurring injuries. Guls decline can be seen in his place in Pakistans lists of centrally contracted players. He was a category A player in 2011 and 2012, and was included in category B in 2013 and 2014, despite missing much of their cricket with injury. He has not found a place in the contract list in 2015 and 2016.Inzamam ul Haq, Pakistans chief selector, was reluctant to comment on Guls outburst, but Tauseef Ahmed, a member of the selection panel, responded, saying the reasons for Guls non-selection were not unfair.He shouldnt be giving statement, rather focusing on his cricket and keep on performing, Tauseef told ESPNcricinfo. Cricket season has just started and he shouldnt be disheartened as there are a lot of series ahead and its not just about Umar Gul but every player who didnt make into the Test side.You obviously cant select everyone at once but we are completely aware about who is dropped and who is selected. Junaid Khan is the other bowler who was left out and he along with Umar was also in contention. But we have our reasons, which are not unfair, and the selected bunch was the best we could possibly pick according the the conditions and competition.Its not just about being senior; its about what is the capability of a player and where he can fit in. Cricket is being played format-wise now, and its not like we have discarded him forever. Bowlers who are selected are good enough and have experience. We will make sure everyone gets a fair chance and we have a lot of cricket ahead and we will continue to monitor the performances of players.The problem is that we didnt have much cricket in the recent past and most of our players are untested. So with a lot of cricket ahead we want to have as many players being tested out [as possible] and that is why we have brought new bowlers into the A team. Gul and Junaid might have missed out but they are still our asset and part of our countrys cricket. They should continue with their cricket and keep on performing in domestic cricket. One must talk with his performance in the ground and that should be a talking point. Journalists should be making noise for player rather than player himself. Cheap Wild Jerseys China .

Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. INDIANAPOLIS -- The Houston Texans are heading home with a lot more than a second straight victory at Indianapolis.Theyre atop the AFC South, again, and in control of their own postseason fate, again, if they keep finding ways to win games.What they did Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak and position themselves for a second straight AFC South title was rely on a proven old-school formula -- run efficiently, force turnovers and let the defense close it out.We have a mindset -- every game is a playoff game, Lamar Miller said after rushing for 107 yards in the 22-17 victory. When we came in (to practice) Monday, you could tell by the energy in the locker room.Right now, everything seems lined up for Houston even though theyre tied for the AFC South lead with Tennessee.Of the three division teams still in contention, Houston has the easiest schedule remaining. It also has a season sweep over the Titans and now its first season sweep of the Colts (6-7). Houston has won nine straight against division foes, tied with Kansas City for the longest active streak in the league.But after snapping a three-game losing streak by winning its second straight on Indys home turf, the Texans know theres still not a lot of margin for error.Its what we talked about, coming here and winning the game, Jadeveon Clowney said after his strip-sack of Andrew Luck on third-and-goal from the 3-yard line snuffed out a scoring chance late in the third quarter. We now control our own destiny.The Colts, meanwhile, must rely on help after Luck was picked off twice, lost the fumble and couldnt put enough points on the board on a frustrating day that left players battered and their playoff hopes severely bruised.It is not what we all anticipated and what we were working for but it didnt work out, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Sometimes that is just how life goes. You dust yourself off, you pick yourself up and you keep moving forward.Here are some other things we learned from Sundays game:GOLDEN OLDIESColts kicker Adam Vinatieri extended his NFL record of 100-point seasons to 19 and set a franchise record with his ninth 100-point season since joining the Colts in 2006. Cheap Minnesota Wild Jerseys. Indy running back Frank Gore ran for 41 yards and had 33 yards receiving, including an 18-yard TD catch, passing Terrell Owens (16,185) for No. 11 on the NFLs career list for yards from scrimmage. Gore has 16,217 yards.Houston linebacker Brian Cushing had six tackles to give him 639 in his career, three more than previous franchise record-holder DeMeco Ryans. Texans punter Shane Lechler also surpassed former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning with his 267th game played.GROUND AND POUNDThe city that once featured the high-octane run-and-shoot offense may go more frequently with the ground-and-pound style to win their second straight division crown.Houston rushed for 185 yards against the Colts and it could be the playbook of the future. After Brock Osweiler was picked off in the first half to end a scoring chance, Houston ran on 10 of its next 12 plays, capping the drive with Millers 2-yard TD plunge.REGRRESSIONThe Colts season largely has been a case of a couple of steps forward and a couple more backward. This week was a perfect example.After dominating the New York Jets on Monday night, the Colts scored one first-half field goal and didnt even come close again until early in the third quarter when a 41-yard defensive pass interference set up Gores score on a screen pass. Indys only other score came on a 35-yard TD pass to T.Y. Hilton early in the fourth.DEFENSIVE DIFFERENCEAfter missing last weeks game at Green Bay and being limited in practice earlier this week, Clowneys return made a difference. He finished with three tackles and one sack, but came up big when it mattered most with the strip sack on the goal line and pressuring Luck into an errant throw on fourth-and-1 from the Texans 42-yard line with 1:24 left to seal the win.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL .

The hosts proved too strong for world champion Spain, cruising to a 3-0 victory at the Maracana Stadium in the match everyone had been expecting for years. Spain did not have what it took to stop Brazils reinvigorated team, allowing the five-time world champion to earn a resounding victory with two goals by Fred and one by young sensation Neymar. "We played a very good match, it allows us to have a better idea about the path ahead of us," Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. "We have a good team to play in the next World Cup." Fred put Brazil on the board less than two minutes into the match, Neymar added to the lead just before halftime and Fred netted his fifth goal in five matches early in the second half to give Brazil victory at the World Cup warm-up tournament. "We beat the world champions today, but we know that the tournament that we will be playing next year will be a lot more difficult," Scolari said. "Now we have more confidence, thats what we needed." Sergio Ramos missed a penalty kick in the 55th and Spain ended the match a man down after defender Gerard Pique was sent off with a straight red card for fouling Neymar in the 68th. Brazil came in hoping a victory would help it regain its status as a global powerhouse after recent struggles. Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals in the last two World Cups and hadnt won a significant title since the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa. "The champion is back," chanted the crowd of more than 73,000 people at the renovated Maracana, the stadium that will host the World Cup final on July 14 next year. It also didnt take long before the fans -- in a sea of yellow jerseys -- started teasing the Spaniards, chanting "Wanna play, wanna play!? Brazil will teach you." The Brazilian players huddled after the final whistle and started singing and jumping, then went toward the crowd near the sidelines and began celebrating. David Luiz kneeled down and raised both of his hands into the air. Brazil, which won its fourth Confederations Cup, has not lost a competitive home match since 1975. The result ended Spains 26-match unbeaten streak. Ranked first for the past 20 months, Spain hadnt lost since a 1-0 result England in a friendly in London in 2011. Its last loss in an official competition had happened 29 matches ago, in the 2010 World Cup opener against Switzerland. Spain badly wanted a victory against the five-time world champion, which was one of the few top teams it hadnt faced since it began dominating international football. Spain won the 2010 World Cup along with the 2008 and 2012 European Championships. Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said it was a "deserved defeat." "Theres not much to say, they were superior on every way," he said. "They scored early. This is not an excuse but they had pressure on us all the time. Ben Gedeon Womens Jersey. " It was the first time the traditional football nations had met since a scoreless friendly in 1999. The last competitive match between the teams had been Brazils 1-0 win in the first round of the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. Brazil scored early on Sunday and kept pressuring, but it didnt take long for Spain to start taking control of the match. The Europeans were not able to create many dangerous opportunities, though, while Brazil kept threatening the most while relying on counterattacks. Fred opened the scoring after a cross into the area by Hulk in the second minute. The ball bounced off Neymar near the far post and Fred, who had fallen while trying to reach for the cross, fired it in with his right foot while still on the ground. Brazil added to the lead with Neymars fourth goal in five matches after an exchange of passes with Oscar in the 44th. The newly signed Barcelona striker, touted as the future of Brazilian football, fired a powerful left-footed shot into the top of the net. Neymar was voted the player of the tournament. Neymar and Daniel Alves took the time after the match to congratulate their Barcelona teammates, who looked desolate across the field. Fred closed the scoring in the 47th from just inside the area, sending a low shot to the far corner. Hulk started the move with a pass to Neymar, but the striker let it go as Fred came running behind him. Spain had the penalty kick after Marcelo fouled Jesus Navas inside the area, but Sergio Ramos sent his kick wide. Spains greatest chance before the penalty came with Pedro Rodriguez in the 41st, when he entered the area clear from defenders in a breakaway. His low shot beat Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar, but David Luiz came rushing in and slid in front of the goal line just in time to keep the ball from going in. Brazil won the its first Confederations Cup title in Saudi Arabia in 1997, then again in Germany in 2005 and in South Africa in 2009. Spain was trying to win the tournament for the first time. No Confederations Cup champion has ever won footballs showcase event the following year. Brazil struggled after Scolari returned to the national team earlier this year, winning only one of its first six matches with him in command, but it has won six in a row now. The warm-up tournament, which gives the home country a chance to test its preparations for the World Cup, is played among continental champions plus the World Cup winner and the hosts. There were protests outside the stadium during the match, with police using rubber bullets and tear gas to keep demonstrators from getting too close. A wave of anti-government protests has swept across Brazil in recent weeks, and many affected the Confederations Cup host cities as demonstrators complained of the costs of hosting the World Cup. On the field, it was a heated match from the start, with players from both teams pushing and shoving each other a few times. Even the substitutes got into a shouting match.

"We beat the world champions today, but we know that the tournament that we will be playing next year will be a lot more difficult," Scolari said. "Now we have more confidence, thats what we needed." Sergio Ramos missed a penalty kick in the 55th and Spain ended the match a man down after defender Gerard Pique was sent off with a straight red card for fouling Neymar in the 68th. Brazil came in hoping a victory would help it regain its status as a global powerhouse after recent struggles. Brazil was eliminated in the quarterfinals in the last two World Cups and hadnt won a significant title since the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa. "The champion is back," chanted the crowd of more than 73,000 people at the renovated Maracana, the stadium that will host the World Cup final on July 14 next year. It also didnt take long before the fans -- in a sea of yellow jerseys -- started teasing the Spaniards, chanting "Wanna play, wanna play!? Brazil will teach you." The Brazilian players huddled after the final whistle and started singing and jumping, then went toward the crowd near the sidelines and began celebrating. David Luiz kneeled down and raised both of his hands into the air. Brazil, which won its fourth Confederations Cup, has not lost a competitive home match since 1975. The result ended Spains 26-match unbeaten streak. Ranked first for the past 20 months, Spain hadnt lost since a 1-0 result England in a friendly in London in 2011. Its last loss in an official competition had happened 29 matches ago, in the 2010 World Cup opener against Switzerland. Spain badly wanted a victory against the five-time world champion, which was one of the few top teams it hadnt faced since it began dominating international football. Spain won the 2010 World Cup along with the 2008 and 2012 European Championships. Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said it was a "deserved defeat." "Theres not much to say, they were superior on every way," he said. "They scored early. This is not an excuse but they had pressure on us all the time. Ben Gedeon Womens Jersey. " It was the first time the traditional football nations had met since a scoreless friendly in 1999. The last competitive match between the teams had been Brazils 1-0 win in the first round of the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. Brazil scored early on Sunday and kept pressuring, but it didnt take long for Spain to start taking control of the match. The Europeans were not able to create many dangerous opportunities, though, while Brazil kept threatening the most while relying on counterattacks. Fred opened the scoring after a cross into the area by Hulk in the second minute. The ball bounced off Neymar near the far post and Fred, who had fallen while trying to reach for the cross, fired it in with his right foot while still on the ground. Brazil added to the lead with Neymars fourth goal in five matches after an exchange of passes with Oscar in the 44th. The newly signed Barcelona striker, touted as the future of Brazilian football, fired a powerful left-footed shot into the top of the net. Neymar was voted the player of the tournament. Neymar and Daniel Alves took the time after the match to congratulate their Barcelona teammates, who looked desolate across the field. Fred closed the scoring in the 47th from just inside the area, sending a low shot to the far corner. Hulk started the move with a pass to Neymar, but the striker let it go as Fred came running behind him. Spain had the penalty kick after Marcelo fouled Jesus Navas inside the area, but Sergio Ramos sent his kick wide. Spains greatest chance before the penalty came with Pedro Rodriguez in the 41st, when he entered the area clear from defenders in a breakaway. His low shot beat Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar, but David Luiz came rushing in and slid in front of the goal line just in time to keep the ball from going in. Brazil won the its first Confederations Cup title in Saudi Arabia in 1997, then again in Germany in 2005 and in South Africa in 2009. Spain was trying to win the tournament for the first time. No Confederations Cup champion has ever won footballs showcase event the following year. Brazil struggled after Scolari returned to the national team earlier this year, winning only one of its first six matches with him in command, but it has won six in a row now. The warm-up tournament, which gives the home country a chance to test its preparations for the World Cup, is played among continental champions plus the World Cup winner and the hosts. There were protests outside the stadium during the match, with police using rubber bullets and tear gas to keep demonstrators from getting too close. A wave of anti-government protests has swept across Brazil in recent weeks, and many affected the Confederations Cup host cities as demonstrators complained of the costs of hosting the World Cup. On the field, it was a heated match from the start, with players from both teams pushing and shoving each other a few times. Even the substitutes got into a shouting match.
