ZURICH, Switzerland -- The World Cup match schedule is unlikely to change despite the international players union voicing concerns about 1 p. Indianapolis Colts Jerseys .m. kickoffs in Brazils heat and humidity, according to the chairman of FIFAs medical committee. "I will be surprised if we can change it. Everything is arranged," Michel DHooghe told The Associated Press on Friday. FIFA President Sepp Blatter said this month that kickoff times are "established but not sanctioned," and could be discussed in Brazil ahead of the draw next Friday. Blatter has been lobbied by the FIFPro union, which objects to seven of 64 matches having 1 p.m. starts in the tropical cities of Fortaleza, Natal, Recife and Salvador on the north-eastern coast. "There will be matches in warm temperatures and you have to be prepared," said DHooghe, a longstanding member of the FIFA executive committee which meets over two days in Brazil. He also sits on the World Cup organizing committee which meets Tuesday. The Belgian doctor said that FIFA already allows referees to order a drinks break in each half when temperatures top 32 degrees (89.6 Fahrenheit). FIFPro secretary general Theo van Seggelen said the union gave FIFA a research document on the issue this week. "We gave them some facts and figures, and lets see if they are going to take it seriously. I think they will," van Seggelen told the AP. "We have a good relationship with the medical committee so we try at least to explain the problem and exchange information." DHooghe said changing the kickoff times was unlikely, after the match schedule was worked out with Brazilian football and government authorities more than two years ago. "I respect FIFPro but I think we take care of the health of our players," he said. "We cant say you will always play between 17 and 20 degrees. "There will be matches in warmer temperatures and colder temperatures. This is one of the difficulties in Brazil when the distances are so big. There are countries who are participating who are used to that." Marlon Mack Jersey . Cesar said the difficulties he went through after the 2010 World Cup helped him become "a better professional" and made him "more focused" on his career. He admitted that he took things for granted before the World Cup in South Africa, when he arrived considered the worlds top goalkeeper. Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey . You can catch all of the action LIVE on TSN2 at 6pm et/3pm pt. The Heat reached that mark Saturday night when they ruined the Philadelphia 76ers home opener. http://www.footballcoltsteamprostore.com/Youth-Adam-Vinatieri-Elite-Jersey/ . Darren Collison and Blake Griffin scored 23 points apiece and the Clippers beat the Suns 112-108 Wednesday night, their fourth win in a row and 17th in the last 19 games.KANSAS CITY, Mo. - In a world of smartphones, text messages and Twitter, theres a good chance that just about everybody inside Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday knew about the Chiefs precarious post-season position.Well, except for the Chiefs.Even as they were knocking the San Diego Chargers from contention with a 19-7 victory, they refused to ask about what was transpiring elsewhere.It was only later that they learned just how close they were to hitting on a three-team parlay — Baltimore getting beat by Cleveland and Houston losing to Jacksonville — that would have gotten them into the playoffs.Nobody knew. Nobody wanted to know, said the Chiefs Chase Daniel, who started in place of injured quarterback Alex Smith. We were focused on the game at hand, the task at hand.By the time the Chiefs got to their locker room, though, they knew: The Ravens and Texans both rallied in the second half for victories, giving Baltimore for the final AFC wild-card spot.We end up missing the playoffs, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, so while its fresh in the players minds, its important that they feel how important every game is in this league. Theres so much parity in the league and these games are so close.The playoff disappointment overshadowed plenty of positives Sunday.Justin Houston had four sacks for the Chiefs (9-7) to break Derrick Thomas franchise record with 22 in the season. Cairo Santos kicked four field goals, and Daniel played serviceably in just his second NFL start, throwing for 157 yards without an interception.The Chiefs only touchdown came when wide receiver Dwayne Bowe fumbled inches shy of the goal line early in the second quarter. Tight end Travis Kelce recovered in the end zone, not only giving Kansas City a 10-0 lead, but keeping a dubious streak intact: No Chiefs wide receiver caught a TD pass all season, the first time in at least 50 years that has happened.I honestly didnt pay attention to that. I wanted to win, Houston said of his record. I felt like everything was going to work out in our favour if we won, wed be in the playoffs.The Chargers (9-7) never really gave themselves a chance at the playoffs.Nick Novak missed a 52-yard field goal attempt late in the third quarter. Midway through the fourth, a touchdown pass to Eddie Royal was overturned by a video review when the ball appeared to skip off the turf — San Diego went for it on fourth down and Philip Rivers threw incomplete. Vontae Davis Jersey. . Then with about 4 minutes left, Donald Brown was stuffed on fourth-and-1 at the Chiefs 20.Rivers was intercepted for a second time in the closing seconds of the game.Very disappointed the way we played, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. Got off to a poor start, put ourselves in a number of holes. Too many penalties, not converting on third down.That was nowhere close to where we needed it to be.Rivers finished with 291 yards passing to go over 4,000 in a season for the sixth time, though he also threw two interceptions. Branden Oliver ran for 71 yards and a touchdown.They were better than us, offensive lineman Chad Rinehart said, and obviously it showed.In many ways, injuries crippled San Diegos post-season hopes.After starting the game without running back Ryan Mathews, wide receiver Keenan Allen and centre Chris Watt, the banged-up Chargers watched right tackle D.J. Fluker walked slowly to the locker room late in the first half. He joined safety Marcus Gilchrist (elbow), cornerback Shareece Wright (head injury) and wide receiver Eddie Royal, who got hurt late in the game.Injuries also took their toll on the Chiefs, who were 7-3 at one point this season.Still, after weathering so much adversity, they still had a shot at the playoffs when the fourth quarter rolled around. They had already built a 19-7 lead, Cleveland was clinging to a 10-3 lead over Baltimore and three-win Jacksonville was leading Houston 17-14.If all three scores had held, the Chiefs would have claimed the final wild-card spot.Instead, the Texans took the lead a few minutes later. So did the Ravens. And when both held on, Kansas City joined San Diego in heading into the off-season.One thing you learn from it is when youve got it in your hands to control, you lock it down, so you dont let that part get away, ever, Reid said, and from a coaching standpoint and a player standpoint, we didnt get that done.Notes: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles ran for 54 yards, going over 1,000 for the season. ... The Chiefs had seven sacks. ... Rivers fell to 34-9 in regular-season games played in December and January. ... Trevor Robinson became the fifth player to start at centre for San Diego this season. ... The Chargers allowed 111 yards rushing, one week after giving up 355 vs San Francisco.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
