LONDON -- Josh Kennedy, Dario Vidosic and Matt Leckie scored to give World Cup-bound Australia an easy 3-0 win over Canada in an international soccer friendly Tuesday. Joao Cancelo Jersey . The Canadian defence was ripped apart on all three goals at Craven Cottage, the west London home to English Premier League side Fulham. The loss stretched Canadas winless streak to 12 games (0-9-3) during which time it has been outscored 24-2. The Canadian men havent scored in their last eight outings, a drought that now stands at 12 hours 32 minutes. The young Canadians showed signs of life in the first half, despite yielding a first-minute goal against experienced, motivated opposition. But the second half was all Australia. The Socceroos, meanwhile, snapped a four-game losing streak in their first match since Holger Osieck, a former Canadian national team manager, was fired as coach. "Its obviously tough when you give up an early goal like that," Canada captain Dwayne De Rosario said. But we knew that Australia was in a position that they had a lot to prove obviously with the recent sacking of their manager." After successive 6-0 losses to Brazil and France, a date with a green Canadian side was a welcome tonic for the Australians. Australia is ranked 53rd in the world, compared to No. 106 for Canada. Australia stroked the ball around in the first half, controlling close to 60 per cent possession with veteran midfielder Mark Bresciano pulling the strings for the Socceroos. Still Canada had several good chances on the counter-attack later in the half. The Canadians fell behind within the first 30 seconds when Kennedy headed in a chipped cross from Bresciano that left goalkeeper Milan Borjan rooted to the spot. The 33-year-old Australian midfielder, a veteran of Italys Serie A who now plays for Qatar Stars League side Al-Gharafa, got a break when the ball bounced off a Canadian straight to him. But Canadas central defence was flat-footed on the play. The six-foot-four Kennedy plays for Nagoya Grampus Eight in Japan. Canada came close to equalizing in the sixth minute but Mitch Langerak made a fine reflex save to deny Simeon Jackson after David Edgar headed on a Marcel de Jong free kick across the goal. De Rosario also had a chance in the 15th minute after Edgar charged down the right flank, but his cross was slightly behind the D.C. United star and the shot did not find its target. Bresciano undressed the Canadian defence again in the 23rd minute but his one-two with Kennedy was ruled offside. Langerak had to be sharp in the 30th to palm a Tosaint Ricketts header over the bar. "I think we got the balls in some areas and (Langerak) made some good saves," De Rosario said. "It was a little unlucky but the main thing was we were starting to push and take some initiative and find some pokes at goal. Thats the positive we can take from that. A game like this is a good opportunity for us as a national team to see where we are moving forward." De Rosario earned his 75th cap in captaining Canada, which started with a backline of Nik Ledgerwood, Doneil Henry, Adam Straith, and de Jong in front of Borjan. The centre back pairing featured 23-year-old Straith, who plays in Germany for Wehen Wiesbaden, and 20-year-old Henry, who plays for Toronto FC. The midfield featured Ricketts, Julian de Guzman, Edgar, and Jackson supporting forwards Iain Hume and De Rosario. Canadian coach Benito Floro was without influential midfielder Atiba Hutchinson, who returned to his Turkish club Besiktas late Saturday after arriving in camp with a minor injury. Floro moved up Edgar, a defender normally, into midfield. There were more midfield woes when de Guzman had to exit in the 25th minute with an injury. He was replaced by Kyle Bekker. Both coaches made changes in the second half with Floro bringing on youth in the form of Jonathan Osorio, Stefan Cebara, Russell Teibert, Ashtone Morgan and Samuel Piette. Canada mustered little offence, however, and Australia dominated as the game wore on. "In the second half the young players did not play well because the opponent was physically very powerful," Floro said. "They made a big press and we didnt have any chances at goal. Its necessary with the young players because we need to give them international experience. This is the problem for us." The only way to improve our level is to play a lot of matches and by training, not only with these players but also the younger ones to teach how we want them to play. Edgar took over as Canadian captain when De Rosario went off. Australia doubled its lead in the 52nd minute off a corner. Henrys clearing header went only as far as Rhys Williams, whose shot bounced off the turf before Vidosic redirected it in with his head just in front of Borjan. Substitute Leckie made it 3-0 in the 78th minute when he outjumped both Canadian central defenders to head home a Carney cross. It was Floros third game in charge. Canada played to a 0-0 draw and 1-0 loss to No. 150 Mauritania last month. Osieck was fired in the wake of Australias lopsided losses to Brazil and France. Interim coach Aurelio Vidmar was put in charge. "Great way 2bounce back from the team with a win over Canada," Australia forward Tim Cahill said on Twitter. "Youngsters were brilliant. Credit to Vidmar getting us back on track." Australia was captained by veteran defender Lucas Neill, who won his 95th cap. Canada last won in October 2012 when it defeated Cuba 3-0 in Toronto in October 2012. Canada has not scored since a Marcus Haber goal in a 2-1 loss to Japan in Doha on March 22. Australia wasnt much better coming into Tuesdays game, having lost four straight and gone winless in its last five matches -- during which it was outscored 19-5. Emre Can Jersey . Lauzon rushed for 42 yards on 15 carries for the Vert et Or (2-3) while quarterback Jeremi Roch completed 19-of-32 passes for 251 yards and one interception.

Rodrigo Bentancur Jersey .com) - Former New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya is joining the Major League Baseball Players Association staff as a senior advisor to executive director Tony Clark. http://www.juventusfcpro.com/Kids-Claudio-Marchisio-Jersey/ . -- Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he isnt going to change what he does on the field.MIAMI - LeBron James has learned an important lesson during his journey from 19-year-old rookie to two-time NBA champion: Never talk back to the coach during a film session. "Let him make his point, whether hes right or wrong, and you live with it and move on," James said. Especially when the coach has as much to show his players as Erik Spoelstra did to James and the Miami Heat on Wednesday. Miamis defence didnt offer much resistance early in Game 3 of the NBA Finals; the San Antonio Spurs played like they were on the court by themselves. San Antonio made 19 of its first 21 shots and shot a finals-record 75.8 per cent in the first half of a 111-92 victory. Just like last year, Game 3 was a blowout that left the Heat facing a 2-1 deficit. Miami came back to win the series, so nobody was overreacting to what happened Tuesday, especially since the Spurs themselves dont expect to shoot that way again. But the Heat have things to clean up before Game 4 on Thursday, or they risk going back to San Antonio facing the end of their title reign. "Youre always on edge in the post-season, but I dont want to be concerned at this point," James said. "For us, we have to make the adjustments." The Spurs had the same lead last year after a 113-77 victory in Game 3, a start-to-finish beating that was even more thorough than Tuesdays win. So they were taking no satisfaction in their position, and certainly not comparing it. "I dont think about last year at all at this point," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I dont think about last year Game 3, Game 4, at all. This is a different animal and Im just concerned about the game tomorrow night." The bigger concerns belong to the Heat, whose defence was also sliced up by the Spurs in the fourth quarter of Game 1. So Spoelstra gathered his team to look at the painful tape of Tuesdays performance, which featured among its problems: —Chris Bosh getting only four shot attempts after scoring 18 points in Games 1 and 2. —James trying to do too much to rally the Heat and ending up with seven of their 20 turnovers. Carlo Pinsoglio Jersey. . —Mario Chalmers missing all five shots and falling to 3 for 12 in the finals. "We did not play a good basketball game," Spoelstra said. "All of us have owned that. It doesnt matter ultimately how many you lose by or what the game is like. You have to learn from it, move on." Spoelstra said watching themselves get clobbered on tape was "painful" and "frustrating," but necessary. He wouldnt reveal what he told his players, but whatever it was, James wouldnt have argued. Thats a lesson he said he learned "quite a few years ago, when you realize that it wouldnt change anything." "You know, the coach is always right," James added. "Its like a teacher. Theyre always right, and thats fine. Thats fair. They make the rules and weve got to live by them." Spoelstras process suits the Heat, who have won 13 straight post-season games following a loss. They followed last years Game 3 no-show with a rout of their own to swing the series back in their favour, and are confident they can make corrections before Thursday. But the Spurs, who didnt think they played that well in the first two games, have shown that not even the respected Miami defence can stop them when they execute the way they did Tuesday. "We finally put a game together for not the full 48, but for as long as we could, where we did exactly what we planned to do and executed in that respect," Tim Duncan said, "and thats what were going to need again." No team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals, and a victory Thursday would guarantee the Spurs two chances to win the series on their home floor, starting with Game 5 on Sunday. Dwyane Wade said the Heat arent thinking that far ahead. "Were an in-the-moment team," he said. "And right now in the moment is the day after a loss, getting better mentally, physically and then coming into tomorrow and playing the game of basketball here on our home floor and trying to win Game 4. That is all we focus on."
