WINNIPEG -- Despite the heated womens soccer rivalry between Canada and the United States that has developed since the London Olympics, coach John Herdman says its important not to make too much of their meeting next week in Winnipeg. Seth Joyner Eagles Jersey . "I know for the U.S., at times, they just look at it as another game and they come into the game nice and light and bright, whereas our girls often see it as something bigger than it is," he said Thursday from Vancouver, as the Canadian roster for the exhibition game next Thursday was announced. "Were looking at some new strategies to try and retain the passion but remove the psychological burden." For Winnipeg-born midfielder Desiree Scott, the pressure will be even greater than he suggested. It will be the first time her parents have ever seen her play live. "Its a massive thing for Desiree and weve all got a big smile on our faces," Herdman said. But he says part of the teams job will be to help her focus on doing what she does best and ignore the added pressure. This is a good chance to see how much development has taken place since Herdman started to refocus the team on the kind of game he says they need to play to be competitive at the 2015 World Cup, being held in cities across Canada, including Winnipeg. "This is where your true gap analysis comes in and you get a great sense of how far youve come along the line towards success at the World Cup," he said. "Theres a certain style and approach we want to go with. . . Its more about in this game the attacking processes of managing the ball better under the sort of pressure the U.S. put you under, as well as being a lot more clinical in those key moments, that transitional moment where we are getting chances but not converting." Canada, currently ranked seventh, lost to the No. 1-ranked Americans 1-0 in Texas in their first meeting this year and hasnt managed to beat the Americans since 2001. Then there was the bitter semi-final loss to the Americans at the 2012 Olympics, where a controversial call by a referee left Canadian fans, and players, outraged. One player from that heartbreaker will be returning for this match. Striker Melissa Tancredi is back after taking a couple of years off to return to school. "Shes close to returning back to professional football in the NWSL and to be back full-time with Canada so shell come into this squad a little bit behind the eight-ball but Melissas presence is always felt." He says shes not going to be able to play 90 minutes after being off for two years, but shes a tough competitor with the kind of spirit and grit that can rub off on young players. One player Herdman would have liked still hasnt recovered enough from an ACL injury to play, natural left-footer Lauren Sesselmann, and hes also missing those who play for Swedish teams because of the travel time and a short turnaround. It provides a chance for Herdman to introduce some young players such as 16-year-old Jessie Fleming and 17-year-old Sura Yekka. Mike Quick Womens Jersey . But the young forward is more than willing to shed a little blood if thats what it takes to make the team this season. "It caught me pretty good, dazed me for that shift, but I didnt want to be off the ice for too long," he said after practice, his lip still bleeding a little despite the plastic stitches holding it together. Wilbert Montgomery Eagles Jersey . Of all the names out there who could realistically be dealt by Wednesdays deadline, Ryan Kesler remains No. 1 on the most desired list. And while were not sure if theyre any closer to a deal, we now have a defined price. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Youth-Brian-Westbrook-Eagles-Jersey/ . In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, the owner of 17 major titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken.DENVER -- Broncos offensive lineman Chris Kuper is retiring after struggling with an ankle injury the last two seasons. Kuper, a fifth-round pick in Denvers 2006 draft, started 79 games at guard over eight seasons. He dislocated his left ankle in the last game of the 2011 reggular season, and though he started another seven games after that, he never returned to his previous level.
