#1 with a touchdown pass to Enunwa -- and, again, von mary123 01.11.2019 08:45

Jamie Maclaren declared hes ready to spearhead the Socceroos attack in their crunch World Cup qualifying clash against Thailand.Injuries to Australias strikeforce have given Maclaren the chance to make his competitive international debut earlier than even coach Ange Postecoglou could have expected.A fortnight ago the Brisbane striker wasnt even in the frame for next Tuesdays match in Bangkok, having been left out of Postecoglous extended 30-man squad.But a week later, with Tim Cahill rested, Maclaren was the bolter in the final 23-man line-up, his strong A-League form the catalyst for his selection ahead of underdone Apo Giannou.Now, with first-choice marksman Tomi Juric ruled out through a knee injury and Giannou recalled in his place, the 23-year-old looks the most likely to be thrust into Australias first XI.Im ready, Im full of confidence Maclaren said.But we all have one objective and thats to qualify for the World Cup, so whoever plays will do a job.Im going to work hard all week and, hopefully, can contribute to this Socceroos squad.With goals in back-to-back games for the Roar, Maclaren has arrived in Bangkok on a high and has already started knuckling down in an intensive 10-day training camp.Though the 23-year-old is self-assured he understands theres far more at stake than when he made his Socceroos debut in Mays friendly against England.For my first camp being a friendly game it was still an amazing experience, Maclaren said.But I know the difference between a friendly and a World Cup qualifier - its that little bit more intense.He expects the match to be intense, too, having experienced Thailand first-hand at youth level for the Young Socceroos.Theyre a quick, sharp sort of team, he said.But the quality weve got in the squad and the way we set up, if we get an early goal itll settle the tide and were possession-based so hopefully well win.Most of the team have landed in the Thai capital, with only No.1 goalkeeper Mat Ryan, back-up Mark Birighitti and Giannou still to touch down later on Tuesday.Juric had been heavily in doubt since limping off the field eight minutes into his match for Swiss outfit FC Luzern on Sunday.Scans overnight on Monday confirmed the extent of his knee injury.Massimo Luongo (foot) and back-up gloveman Mitch Langerak were also ruled out on Monday, providing Melbourne City midfielder Luke Brattan and Birighitti a chance to make an impression.

Ryan Fitzpatrick points the finger solely at himself.The veteran quarterback has been bad, benched -- and, lately, bounced back.Fitzpatrick has helped lead the Jets to two straight wins and he knows its on him to be a lot better in the last eight games if New York has any chance of making the playoffs.I think the biggest thing is that I havent played well, and I think thats where it starts, Fitzpatrick said during a conference call Monday. Offensively, if your quarterbacks not playing well, then youre not going to play well on offense.The offense is ranked 22nd overall, up a spot from last week. The running game has gotten in gear, with Matt Forte running for 82 yards in a 24-16 win over Baltimore and Bilal Powell adding 76. The passing game, which was such a force last season, has been mostly grounded, although Quincy Enunwa has emerged as a legitimate playmaker in Eric Deckers absence.I think we definitely played below expectations, especially speaking for the offense and myself, Fitzpatrick said. Theres a lot of things that we need to do better if were going to continue this winning streak and continue to win games, but I think its been a huge disappointment.Fitzpatrick went on to say that hes proud of his teammates resolve during the rough start -- which can only help turn things around.I think we have the right guys in the locker room to do it, he said. I think thats what everybody feels. I think the confidence is up. Winning two games in a row, guys remember what it feels like.Fitzpatrick threw 11 interceptions in the first six games with just five touchdowns. Coach Todd Bowles sat him last week in favor of Geno Smith, who didnt even last a half because of what turned out to be a season-ending knee injury.So Bowles turned back to Fitzpatrick, who did just enough -- no turnovers -- in the Jets 24-16 win over Baltimore. He chided the front office for losing faith in him, and insisted his confidence was still strong.Hes a quarterback, so any time it goes good or bad, the quarterback is the focal point, but there are a lot of reasons why we havent played well the first half of the season, Bowles said. Either its a guy here or a guy there. Its not necessarily the quarterback at all.On Sunday, Fitzpatrick shook off an awful first half in whiich he was 3 of 14 for 30 yards and rebounded with an efficient final two quarters in which New York rallied to a 31-28 victory at winless Cleveland.ddddddddddddIt got so bad that even Broadway Joe himself took to Twitter to plea for Bowles to give second-year quarterback Bryce Petty a chance.Who thinks we should see Bryce Petty start the 2nd half? Joe Namath wrote. I know I do. It hurts to say this, but were not goin anywhere with Fitzpatrick.Fitzpatrick brushed off the comments, saying, I understand it, 100 percent.Theres going to be a lot of times when people doubt you or your ability and sometimes rightfully so, but if you dont believe in yourself, then you have no chance in this league, he said. I didnt play well in the first half, but I thought we came out and did a good job in the second half with three of those drives, scoring touchdowns, and a lot of that is just through experience and having that confidence and believing in myself that I can get the job done, regardless of the circumstance.Namath, by the way, tweeted his approval after the game: Lousy first half, terrific second half. Nice goin Jets!Fitzpatrick finished 16 of 34 for 228 yards with a touchdown pass to Enunwa -- and, again, with no turnovers. The final numbers were hardly eye-popping, but theyre at least on the right track.Fitzpatrick won over his teammates and many Jets fans with a franchise-record 31 touchdown passes last season. He re-signed for one year and $12 million just before training camp opened, satisfying many teammates who thought the offense could hum with their QB back under center. Fitzpatricks early-season struggles, however, helped put the Jets in a 1-5 hole that he is slowly trying to help them dig out of.Whether its fundamentals or thought process, whether its physical or mental, I just have to continue to work every day and try to be a better player, he said. I think as I play better, the offense will do the same.Game notes Bowles said TE Kellen Davis had a sore elbow, but was having X-rays taken after he was injured during one of Fortes touchdown runs. That was the Jets only significant injury.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
