New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has given an insight into his tactical thinking as he prepares for Italys opening game of Euro 2016 against Belgium on Monday. Luke Kuechly Womens Jersey . Conte, who will leave his job with the Azzurri to take charge at Stamford Bridge after the tournament in France, is set to rely on the solid foundation provided by the defence of his former club Juventus.The 46-year-old has regularly started with the backline of the Serie A champions with Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini forming a three-man defence in front of veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. However, he has also stressed the teams focus is not just on a traditional strong Italian defence as he is keen to adopt a balanced approach.Its definitely an advantage to be able to rely on four players from Juventus who have played together for a long time in defence, and of course we are building something solid on this basis, Conte, whose team conceded just seven goals in 10 matches in qualifying, told UEFAs official website. Sky Sports Euro predictor Pick your champions in France But as I said before, I like to adopt a proactive style of play and for this, balance will be important, both in attacking and defending.Bonucci, though, believes the Italy strikers will have a high workload as Conte asks them to be his teams first line of defence. Leonardo Bonucci expect some defensive help from the Italy forwards Whats certain is that the defensive operation includes the forwards as well. Our work is made easier by the fact our forwards, just as Conte wants, are our first defenders, Bonucci said.I dont think a team necessarily need to score that many goals; you only have to score one more than your opponents and concede one less.

The game had many controversial incidents that, upon closer inspection, were not as controversial as many believed. The Formations Toronto FC lined up in its usual 4-4-2 formation, with Nick Hagglund slotting in at right fullback and Bradley Orr at centreback in place of the injured Mark Bloom and Steven Caldwell, respectively. Ted Ginn Jr Womens Jersey .Y. - OK, it is done.With John Tavares second period knee injury against the Latvians Wednesday, he wasnt just lost for the rest of the Olympics, but also the rest of the NHL season. The blow for the New York Islanders was softened a little by the fact their season is already all but over, sitting 12 points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a 22-30-8 record. But imagine if the Islanders were in playoff contention, losing one of the best players in the league. Islanders general manager Garth Snow was none too happy about losing his superstar centre at an international competition. Speaking to Newsday on Thursday, Snow chastised the IIHF and IOC for wanting all the benefits of NHLers for nothing in return and even suggesting the organizations reimburse Islanders season ticket holders. Tavares injury, and Snows subsequent reaction – a sentiment likely shared by GMs around the NHL – may be enough for the league to halt their participation in the Olympics. In light of this and other injuries suffered in Sochi, is it time for the NHL to stop sending their players to the Winter Olympics? The 23-year-old Canadians season isnt the only casualty of the Winter Games, as the Florida Panthers have lost promising rookie Alexander Barkov to a knee injury playing for Finland, and veteran forward TThomas Kopecky to a concussion playing for Slovakia. Thomas Davis Authentic Jersey. And while Pavel Datsyuk played in every Russian game at the Olympics, an argument could be made that were it not for the Olympics in his home country, the 35-year-old would be resting his troublesome knee ahead of the Detroit Red Wings playoff push. The solution could come in the reincarnation of the World Cup of Hockey, to be played in late summer before the NHL season begins. While injuries would be as unavoidable then as they are now in the Olympics, players would be coming in fresher and would have more time to heal before training camps open in the fall. Theres nothing quite as momentous as playing for your country in the Olympics, as Steven Stamkos showed doing everything he could to get healthy in time for this years tournament, but a World Cup could be a compromise that keeps every party involved relatively happy. And for hockey nuts worried about the void if the NHL pulls out of the Olympics, ideas such as making the World Juniors, an increasingly popular tournament around the world, an Olympic event every fourth year may be enough to appease them. Should the NHL stop sending their players to the Winter Olympics? Youve heard what weve had to say, now its your turn. As always, its Your!
