Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Whether its winning ugly or winning beautiful, all that matters to manager Antonio Conte is that his Chelsea side are winning. The Premier League leaders look to match a single-season club record Wednesday night with their 10th win on the bounce as they face last-place Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.The Blues (12-1-2) maintained their three-point lead atop the table over the weekend by grinding out a 1-0 victory over West Bromwich as Arsenal rallied to defeat Stoke. Diego Costa provided two moments of individual brilliance inside the final quarter-hour to turn a cagey match into three points for Chelsea.The striker hunted down a lost-cause ball in the channel of West Broms final third and cleanly knocked defender Gareth McAuley off the ball before storming towards goal and beating Ben Foster with a rising, rasping left-footed shot inside the upper left corner on 76 minutes.It was Costas league-best 12th goal of the campaign, matching his entire total of last season when Chelsea slumped to 10th while crumbling under the weight of their title defence. This time around, the naturalised Spaniard has played with controlled fire and fury in powering Chelseas longest winning streak since their club-record 11-game run over the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons.Hes showing great passion, he likes to play football. Hes showing me great commitment and work-rate with and without the ball to help the team, Conte said post-match. Its important for him to continue this way … Diego is a great striker and he can continue to improve his football but Im satisfied with the work we are doing with him and the team.January is arriving and its incredible because after the Arsenal defeat he had four yellow cards, he was on edge and continued to stay on edge. I think he can arrive in January without a yellow card. I hope he can.Costa has 44 goals in 69 league matches for the Blues, including two in four games against Sunderland.I remember the year we were champions with Atletico (Madrid) he was very strong, and three year we were champions with Chelsea he was very strong as well, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said. This season up to now he has scored very important goals. … It was a rough time for all the team last year but from January or February Diego was already scoring a lot of goals, and he has just carried that form on.Chelseas other single-season 10-game winning streak came during the 2005-06 campaign when they successfully defended their first Premier League title. About the only thing that soured Contes mood was when he was asked about a report in which the FA may dock points for his teams role in a brawl at the end of their 3-1 victory at Manchester City on Dec. 3.Are you joking? he responded as he narrowed his piercing blue eyes at the questioner. If youre involvedd in a situation and the fault is not yours, why must you pay? My players tried to keep their calm. Willie Mays Jersey. I dont understand this. I repeat, I dont understand this. Were trying to improve in all aspects, also this. For this reason I reply: you must be joking.In every game you fight a lot during the 90 minutes and then when the ref blows his whistle you finish. I dont know what happened in the past but I know whats happening in the present. My players tried to keep the calm.Chelsea have had a history of disciplinary issues before Contes arrival at Stamford Bridge, most notably their ill-tempered match against Tottenham Hotspur last season in which they were fined a record £375,000 for failing to control their players. The win over City was the fifth time the FA had charged them in the past 19 months, but the organisation has not deducted points for on-field player conduct since Manchester United and Arsenal had an all-out brawl at Old Trafford in 1990 that resulted in United being docked one point and the Gunners two.Though Sunderland (3-2-10) have showed improved form of late to narrow the distance to safety, they have yet to find a way off the foot of the table. David Moyes side was unable to build on a win over reigning champions Leicester City, falling 3-0 at Swansea City last Saturday.The match swung on Gylfi Sigurdssons penalty kick early in the second half that opened the scoring. And another goal three minutes later left the Black Cats all out of sorts. Moyes conceded his team failed to deliver the improved style it had shown in the past month, but he is hopeful Sunderland will regroup quickly.Were back on the bottom but weve been there for most of it so its not something new to us, he said. But we arent back at square one, because weve got ourselves back in with a fighting chance and a few weeks ago we didnt have that. So we will brush ourselves down, and get on with whats next, which is a busy week.High-calibre opponents, though, have brushed past Sunderland with relative ease thus far. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have all beaten the North-East team in this campaign.Sunderland have won back-to-back home contests after taking just one point in their first five matches at The Stadium of Light. Theyve also won two of their last three there against Chelsea in all competitions, including a 3-2 victory in last seasons corresponding fixture as Jermain Defoes goal on 70 minutes capped a rally that helped the Black Cats eventually avoid the drop.Chelsea are 2-1-3 in their last six overall against Sunderland after losing just once in the previous 19 meetings (17-1-1) between the teams. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
